It is not a freezer--the other type will keep things frozen solid with the temp in the car well over 100. It seems to be about the same as the type sold at Walmart.

These are very inefficient and only cool about 30 degrees below ambient. There is no compressor.

I had a 12V Coleman which was a nice waste of money. It never kept anything cold. These lesser units will only cool to 30-50 degrees or so below ambient temp maximum.

So that means if it's 110 degrees outside, or in your truck (easy if the sun is directly on it), you will have 80-60 degree beer at best... and forget about milk, meats, etc.

I think they are ok for a picnic or something but at this level, a simple cooler w/ ice does a better job for less $ and more room.

The Engels are awesome, so once you recover from sticker shock, will really appreciate it. Plus, it's a lifetime product. Super construction.
