CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT DOMETIC?
Dometic has a long history, the brand can be traced back to the invention of the very first refrigerator in 1925 by two Swedish engineering students. These students were convinced the best way to cool was by using heat and so they designed a product that absorbed heat generated by a boiler to circulate a cooling agent through the system; thereby creating a cooling effect.
The invention was taken up by the company Artic, then within a few years by Electrolux, who saw the value in a cooling system that uses heat rather than ice. With the global boom of sales in refrigerators after World War II, Leisure fridges split off from the household fridges segment and was given the name that we know today, Dometic.
All of the Dometic cooling boxes hake been tested in the hottest parts of the Australian deserts, with temperatures up to 40°C. These fridges/freezer can hold up to the heat of the sun, after three months of operation in one of the hottest places in the country, none of their boxes never lost their functionality and stayed cool.

WHAT TO THINK OF WHEN BUYING A POWERED COOLER?
The most common cooling technologies are: compressor coolers, thermoelectric coolers and absorption coolers. Compressor coolers are very powerful and can provide an excellent cooling performance, even at extremely high ambient temperatures. Thermoelectric coolers are lightweight and not only cool – they can heat too! Absorption coolers operate on gas power and work wherever you are, independently of the availability of electricity
PORTABLE FRIDGE OR PORTABLE FREEZER?
An important aspect to consider is whether you need a cooler that keeps, cools or freezes. A compressor box has the power to freeze regardless of the ambient temperature, while an absorption cooler is can cool contents depending on the ambient temperature. A thermoelectric cooler keeps contents cool, rather than cools them itself. It's therefore necessary to pre-cool items before placing them inside a thermoelectric cooler
ELECTRIC COOLERS – COMPRESSOR OR THERMOELECTRIC?
Pick an electric cooler according to the ambient temperature. If you want to be able to keep your ice cream frozen in extreme heat, you should look into a compressor cooler. If you are looking for an electric cooler for use in cooler climates, a thermoelectric cooler which cools up to 20°C below the ambient temperature should be sufficient.

WHAT IS A COMPRESSOR COOLER?
The compressor cooler maintains cold or freezing temperatures inside, even on the hottest days. This electric cooler is ideal for mobile use, on your RV, your boat trip and even for barbecues at home, where a compressor cooler can be connected to mains power and provide temporary additional storage for food and beverages. An advantage of compressor coolers over other types of electrical cooler is that they offer more than portable refrigeration alone, they can also operate as a portable freezer! Deep-freeze using 12/24V DC and 100-250 volts AC – compressor coolers are even solar compatible! As one of the most high-tech electric coolers on the market, our CFX range can be temperature controlled via its WiFi-app
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A COOL BOX?
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a tour cooling system is how much space you are likely to need. The capacity of each product is listed on the product description page, and this will depend on how many people you plan to feed. However, it is also important to remember that the item must fit in your transportation method. You also need to consider your access to power, and if you are camping in the wild with no car, then you may not have access to the electrical hook-up needed to run your cooler. However, some of the Dometic coolers and fridges do run on solar power (via a battery), with panels available to purchase. This renewable energy source is a great way to keep things fresh when off the grid, wherever you are in the world.
