It works well!
on April 18, 2012
I purchased this cooler for a long road trip on my honeymoon. We spent 3-full days in my truck, and wanted something to keep beverages & food cold without having to deal with the mess & fuss of ice.
*It works - It kept items that were cold, cold. It also cooled room temperature items within roughly an hour and a half or so.
*Perfect size for the back-seat of a vehicle without taking up to much space.
*Keeps cooled items cool even when unplugged like a standard cooler.
*No ice to mess with, no water to drain, no need to let it dry out!
*It is a little noisy. The is the only thing keeping this cooler from 5-stars! If you want this for a vehicle, and drive without the radio - this is not for you. I never noticed the unit during our drive, other than when we turned the radio off, or down near minimum levels. It sounds like a small computer fan running if noise is a concern.
* Amazon's description is INCORRECT. It advises that the unit includes the A/C Adaptor. It does not include one. Even Coleman advised Amazon's description was incorrect when I spoke with them. However, Coleman's customer service is absolutely amazing and they helped me out.
*Just be sure you have more than one 12v outlet. My truck has one behind the center console for the back seat. My wife's Jeep only has one outlet in the front console. The cord is long enough to reach the back seat of the Jeep though!
