Many other 12-volt coolers use weak compressors to reduce the temperature of your food and beverages. ARB fridge freezers come equipped with robust Danfoss compressors to provide powerful refrigeration that can actually cools your food and drinks down–and then keeps them cold. All ARB fridge freezer models are capable of reducing the interior temperature to 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
ARB fridge freezers are designed to both actively and passively cool your food and drinks–even while the vehicle is off. When the internal temperature of the fridge rises above the digital thermostat’s setting, the compressor activates to cool the contents back down. The adjustable integrated battery protection system allows the fridge to sip battery power while your vehicle is off, keeping your food and drinks cold without overly draining your battery. Heavy duty insulation and hardware helps maintain chilly temperatures. The 50-quart model is able to maintain sub-freezing temperatures in 90 degree heat while only drawing 0.87 amps per hour from a 12-volt power source. That’s less power than a single headlamp draws. Once to temperature, ARB fridge freezers consume the least amount of power when compared to other leading brands.
Generous Compartments Let You Take More on the Road
The 37-quart compact fridge is ideal for two-person trips, tailgate parties, or a long weekend of camping. It has a low profile for easy placement in pickup beds, under tonneau covers, on top of cargo drawers, or in compact SUVs. This “squat” design also provides excellent visual access to fridge contents. The main internal compartment measures 13.27″ deep, 11.22″ wide, and 12.64″ high; and the dairy compartment measures 5.95″ deep, 11.22″ wide, and 4.96″ high. It can hold up to fifty 12-ounce cans, and can also accommodate a two-liter bottle of soda.
Heavy-Duty Construction for Years of Use
Designed with travelers and off-road drivers in mind, all ARB fridge freezer models come equipped with a super-durable patented hinge system with a front-opening lid that provides easy access to fridge contents. This design is compatible with ARB fridge freezer slides, which provide quick drawer-like access to the entire unit and allows you to bolt the fridge to your vehicle. ARB fridge freezers can be mounted at extreme angles up to 30 degrees without affecting operation or reliability.
Two separate power cords are included. The DC power cord connects to your vehicle’s DC power outlet, providing 12 and 24-volt power to the unit while you’re on the go. The AC power cord plugs into a standard household electrical socket, and supplies power to the fridge when you’re at home or at your destination. A built-in cable retention system keeps the power cords neat when not in use. The power system is completely self-contained within the fridge unit, so there’s no external transformers or power “bricks” to worry about.
As with any refrigerator, it is important to have quality wiring running to the power outlet that you are plugging the fridge into. This minimizes harmful voltage drops which can harm internal parts. For increased product life, it is recommended that you protect the fridge freezer from weather and the elements.
