Another reviewer stated, "I operated a massage and heat cushion continuously for over 6 hours and the adapter did not even get warm!"

More relevantly, it DOES get VERY warm when operating my cooler. Be warned!

I am running my 16-quart Coleman electric cooler using this adapter, before my trip, as a test. The adapter runs HOT! It feels quite hot to the touch, and my infrared thermometer showed 145 degrees F at the warmest spot. The room is about 80 F now, mid afternoon; it is cooler at night.

So, don't get the impression that the adapter easily runs Coleman coolers! Maybe it will be durable enough, but it would last longer if it ran cooler.

Perhaps Coleman changed from an external AC cord to AC plugs in the adapter case itself to make it less likely the adapter will have clothing, etc., piled on top -- because then the adapter would grow hotter yet.

these units are poorly made and fail after prolonged use. I am on my 3rd one now after 2 years (though I use the cooler/fridge all the time). Clearly made to get you through the couple of camping trips you might make per year. Prolonged use causes them to fail. I really like the cooler and am prepared to have to buy one of these every now and again if that is what keeps it running for me. They are a little expensive for what amounts to disposable items (but don't dispose of course, recycle them with electronics :)

This product was as advertised and was packaged well.
Shipment was prompt and in the mail the next day.
Price was the lowest I could find in stores as well as
on the internet. I would buy again.

We used this on our 3-week trip, plugged into the car outlet during travel then plugged into this device at motels and homes we visited.

This adapter is great to use while on vacation. The food stays cold in the car with the car adapter, and you can use it in a hotel room, or a campground that supplies electric. I'm so glad I was able to purchase it.

It is replacement for the AC adapter that came with my cooler. Not very exciting. I could buy the whole cooler for about twice the price of this item, but then I would be adding my old one to the landfill. Coleman should do the right thing by the consumer and make replacement parts available at a decent price.

We purchased a Coleman Cooler we could plug into the car and then move into a hotel/motel room. In one of the hotels we stayed we fried the adapter and of course it was in the beginning of our trip. Ordered another from Amazon and had shipped to one of our stops. We are so happy because this adapter works great for moving the cooler into our motel rooms. Was lost without it.

It really is a must have if you need extra cooling. We used it in our camper to keep our beverages cool. It really worked so well and we will be using it in hotels that don't have the small refrigerators. So glad we finally purchased it.
