Excellent quality and generous size.
Just purchased this at 19:59. Plugged it in and it’s amazing! Love the Bluetooth app. Works like a dream. You can choose the desired temperature on your phone.
I would definitely recommend this product.

Never misses a beat!
I bought this as a back-up for my Waeco that cost twice the price. IMHO it works every bit as well as the Waeco. It has been to hell and back on some of the roughest Outback tracks imaginable. I have it set on 2 degrees, which it maintains easily, even when the ambient is in the high 30's - perfect for a cold beer at the end of the day. Every summer I use it as a back-up beer fridge and it runs solidly for 3 months on 240v on the back verandah.
I'm planning to set it as a freezer on my next trip and have been testing it. I didn't expect it to ...

Simple and it works!!!
While camping, we purchased the fridge/freezer and connected it to our Jeep via the cigarette lighter connection. I liked the fact it was an easy setup. I was worried about draining my car battery and I like the battery checker setting. The only time I got an Err1 code was when the fridge was plugged in, and then I started the car. I suspect there must have been some sort of change in voltage. After a few minutes it reset itself and was happy again. Next purchase will be an extra battery, solar panels and inverter. Really recommend

We purchased this portable frig over 3 years ago and have used it a lot for camping, picnics, travelling, taking food to friends’ or relatives’ places for gatherings, etc. It was very good value for money and has performed well. It maintains its temperature well, and we have often used it in Central west NSW during hot weather. We use it on 12V in the car, and 240 V plugged into either a generator or solar power when we’re camping.
Would definitely recommend it.

I'll not recommend
last year I bought it from Aldi, so on first day I checked it it was working, it's never been used so today I checked it it's not getting cool. Will not recommend

I have owned a number of fridges. The fridge that I have now is an Evakool RF60 - their top end model. I have had nothing but trouble with it for 4 years. I always have my fridges on at home running 24/7 and use them as extra storage. The Evakool cycles literally 5 times as much as the ALDI one. I have had the ALDI fridge for 9 months now, and it has never missed a beat. I also attached a separate digital thermometer to it, and it will display a temperature within 1.5 degrees. I love the LED lighting, and the heavy duty latches. So far it has o...nly been running at home 24/7, and is full to the brim, as we use it as an extra fridge. I have it set at -0c and can keep everything in fridge without freezing. I also notice it does not cycle anywhere near as much as the Evakool - and it is 1/4 the price. Still have to test it out in back of 4WD and on a camping trip, but so far - for a $400 buck fridge if it works for 5 years, then money well spent.

Error 6 straight out of the box
After reading these reviews I made the decision to purchase one of these but straight out of the box it showed error 6. It makes you wonder what sort of quality checks are done on these before they leave the factory. I will be asking for my money back & spend a little extra on a decent one that actually works from the start.

Great fridge, very happy so far
Purchased three weeks ago (March 20), along with the portable folding solar panel and battery box (already had a deep cycle battery). Fridge works very well and does everything as advertised. Great on 240v as well as on 12v. My battery lasted FOUR days set at 2deg C.

Works well but only for a limited time
We use this a few times a year while camping. We power it up at home before we go (no problems), then in the car en route (typically 3 to 5 hours), then from a battery once at site. It works perfectly well for 3-4 days, but then it starts going into error mode. We use the override function and this refreshes it and it's OK again but only for a few hours. After that this cycle repeats but with decreasing duration of fridge working OK. Ultimately it stops working around 4-5 days. The difference in power consumption relating to the ambient temperature is as you would expect, suggesting that the insulation is decent, although not as good as a top-level fridge. So overall, mixed feelings.
Rusty pipes and leaking gas
The pipes inside this fridge are mild steel. You’d be lucky to get longer than 4 years from this rubbish. Rusty pipes and leaking gas. I’d advise for all to stay away.

used it 3 times, now it wont keep temp and goes into error mode. have tried many times to reset but it just does the same thing, Very disappointing as we are going away and need it.

5 star fridge with the same compressor as the big guys
I have owned this fridge for 4 years and the only thing to happen is it started to blow the cigarette fuse in my Amarok, installed a new 25 amp circuit now the fridge works fine.
This fridge has bounced around in the back of my 4wd on some bad outback roads, overheating in the back of my black 4wd with a black canopy while keeping our food in great condition.
Some fridges cost $1,800 this fridge cost me $440 do the math! Both fridges come with the same warranty!
Owning a portable fridge and keeping it working can be tricky so here are my tips

Terrible value for momey
Purchased April 2017 and stored it in my shed powered off. First and second camping trips it worked fine although the current draw was a little high. Third trip plugged it into the power and the display started flashing, the motor did not come on or the light. Very disappointed/.

Was great for 4 years! Now Er1 showing and not working
We purchased this camping fridge from Aldi about 4 years ago- we'd seen too many Engels get stolen in camping grounds and felt it was safer to have a less expensive model!
It was a great fridge for about 4 years but has suddenly started reading Er1 and not working. Would I buy one again- probably not. It cost about $450 but really to be used for less than 6 weeks a year it should have lasted longer.

Questions & Answers
How do you switch the LED lights on and off?
Nothing in the manual.
Are these fridges genuinely reliable, what is there life span and how much power do they use?
I've had mine a couple of years and have used it fairly heavily. Had no problems. The current draw is about 2.5Ah but it depends very much on the ambient temperature. I'd say that the insulation isn't as good as with a premium brand like Engel, ARB or Dometic but you get what you pay for. I have a 50L Dometic fridge that draws about half the current of the Aldi.
No worries for your information cheers mate much appreciated
I’ve been away caravanning for the last 2 months and my adventuridge fridge/freezer has just suddenly started playing up. Whilst it is set to -20 degrees, it is suddenly only cooling to 0 degrees, regardless of what I set the temp at. I’ve tried switching it on and off and changing temperature settings without any change. The fridge is outside in the shade connected to power and I’m careful not to leave it in areas which are too hot. Any ideas what to do? Or is it just a device fault? We are on the road for the next 5 months, often remote, so need the issue resolved ASAP
