    Small, very small

    published

    This little fellow will keep your dozen cans cool, but long necks? Forget it. Way too small for large bottles. Also, mine never has an "off cycle". It runs constantly. I don't know if thats a fault with mine, or how their supposed to operate. My Evakool 47litre uses less power, but is too big for the boat, hence my purchase of the little Engel. I should have got a slightly bigger, more conventional shaped one, though. Would make a good little freezer; with the emphasis on little!
    Small externally, and relatively light
    Small interior, almost impractical as a fridge. Runs constantly.

    Not really. It will freeze the items if it’s turned up, but it has such a small capacity, I wouldn’t bother.
    It’s ideal for cans or stubbies, small food items etc, but not large things.
    I would suggest a chest style fridge/freezer that has the compressor at one end, and a divider for cold one side, and freezing the other.
    Also, as much as I like my little 14 litre Engel, the motor runs continuously, with the motor working harder when the “load” kicks in. It’s tough and reliable, but I wouldn’t want it in the van with me all night.

    I presume that you have searched eBay? I’m sure that somewhere in the world one would exist. Failing that, plenty of people are handy with industrial sewing machines, and could fashion one using your fridge as the template (leaving the air vents, and controls free, of course).
    I had a complex zippered tailored bag made for a small outboard motor once. Cost me $130 and fit like a glove. A rectangular one would have been half that price.

    How many 375mm cans does this hold?

    From memory David, as I've not used it for a while now, she holds about 18 cans; if you lay them sideways. About 14 standing upright. Not many, compared to my much larger Frigmate, but I cant carry the bigger one around on one shoulder either.
    It's a portable fridge, for short term applications. Not suitable for feeding a large family, or supplying piss to a footy team. Horses for courses mate.
    This Engel runs constantly. There's no "off cycle" with the motor. Sometimes the motor is working harder than others though. I thought it was a fault with it, but the Engel people set me straight on this. Very small power consumption, and very cold, very quickly. I've fitted a digital thermometer to her, as I don't want to freeze my beer. Cheers.
