    Default 12v Cooler for $125

    Looks like something useful if you're not on the grid or want to have some cold ones in the car:

    It's $165 if you do the payment plan instead of the one time pay of $120+shipping I might get one for here in the states. It is a fridge/warmer after all and not just a cooler. I think it would be great if you are running off of solar and just have a few items to keep cold. Have you seen what they charge for $20 coolers in the DR??

    Or try Ebay. A small one for $57 plus what it costs to get you to the DR. There are quite a few of these peltier effect devices available. Here is how they work based upon these devices:

    We actually have a similar one, picked it up at a garage sale in NJ for $5.

    Does a good job too.

    I had one of those 12v coolers on my boat and it was great....running about 4-5 amps, which is a lot. The more expensive ones starting at USD$800 run at .05 amps.

    I was going to mention how notoriously inefficient they are and will drain a battery in a real hurry. OK of plugged into a running motor with an alternator, however.

    Weighs 14 pounds when empty.

    The Kargo Kooler measures 20 by 14 by 16 inches (length by width by height).
    It would cost a lot to $hip it here.

    .05 amps at 12 volts is 0.6 watts - Nothing of any use is going to get cold using 0.6 watts so I have to ask you to please check your facts.
