Electric 18 Quart Compact Cooler & Warmer 12V Powered Car Boat Outlet Travel Box. Customer Review : It's been great for me, as long as I remember how it works. It works using natural convection, not a fan or a huge heat sink like a big block of ice. The fan you hear does not move air in the cooler.It only draws the heat out of the cooling element on the outside. The cooling element on the inside is just cold. Consider if you had a block of ice as small as a stick of butter in the corner of your cooler, that never melts. That is what this is like. There's no cool air circulating in the cooler, it's just sucking heat out from a small area. It will take some time, and if the area at the bottom of the cooling unit is blocked or insulated, the rest of the cooler will eventually get warm. I have a thermometer in an empty cooler that has been running for a couple of hours, and while the outside temperature is 72°F, the inside temperature is 28°F. But if I place insulating items around the bottom of the cooling element, such as boxes of Thin Mints so good! Then the rest of the cooler won't get nearly so cold. It can stay as hot as 50°F at the far end of the cooler when the cold can't be transferred there. Best place to start is with already-cold items. That will give the cooler its best shot. The next thing to consider is to place liquids and solids that transfer heat closer to the cooling element than boxes of loose items.
Boxes that contain a lot of air will insulate the cooling element from the rest of the cooler. Allow as much airflow as possible around items. This will allow natural convection to mix the air as much as possible. If you happen to have a mechanical engineer in the family who works with heat transfer devices or remembers his fluid dynamics from college, you're golden. D One note: the cooler is not the most insulating thing in the world.
It really does rely on the cooler to work for it to keep its temperature. If you keep it in the sun, it will get warm. With some practice and planning, this thing will work as advertised, or better. I've had 50°F differences or greater between the outside and inside air. Customer Review : I put this in my boat.I hate the reusable packs freeze packs. They keep things kinda cool never ice cold. So I saw this and said what the heck lets try it. And I took it out over the weekend and WOW. All my pop was ice ice cold.
Our sandwiches were cool but not to cool. Any thing left on the bottom next to the cooler is going to be the coldest. The stuff up near the top will be warmer.I wish the top would seal like a reg cooler and everything in it would be just as cold. When I was plugin in the power (I did not read the instructions) I noticed a red dot and a blue dot. Thinking red meant + I plug that side in first. Left it running and came back to it. Reach my hand in there and everything was nice and warm. Red mean hot and blue means cold. Flipped the power around and yep the unit went cold.
