Good dual zone fridge
The NL 50 Twin (40lt fridge/10lt freezer) is, like all other NL fridges a quality built product , the only issues I have had with it was that it had an over pressure fault which rectified itself (unfortunately after 48 hours) otherwise it has been excellent. I'm not a big fan of dual zone fridges as you HAVE to run one section as a freezer to get the other side as a fridge- the freezer section will be -10 deg C lower than what you set the fridge side at, this can be an issue if you want say icecream as you would have to run the fridge at -8 whi...ch is not ideal. The good this though is that the 2 sections are completely separate so there is no chance of accidentally freezing anything unlike the CF 60/80 WAECO which only have a plastic divider to seperate each section. This also makes the NL a very efficent fridge/freezer, set on 1 degC the fridge used 1.3 amps per hour over 24 hours inside my 4X4 with a temp range of 24C to 37C. The lid is interchangeable from a side opening to a front opening like the Engel fridges. It has 2 internal fridge baskets which are good but if you use them you cannot stand bottles up and 1 freezer basket which I use to stop the beers from marking the aluminium sides (I only use the freezer only for express chilling beer!) I've pulled it apart to clean it as I purchased it second hand, good to find a re-charge port for the refigerant, this is a rarity in portable fridges. It has a battery monitor on the temp panel which is very handy and you can set an alarm if there is a problem as well as a 3 stage battery protection setting, like most new fridges. Pros- build quality Cons- Cleaning can be a pain, they have plasitc bottom sections that are good for containing spills but where it meets the aluminium sides there's a tiny gap that can retain smells (DON'T put bait into the fridge unless you want to spend ages trying to clean it to get the smell out!)
