This cooler was exactly what I expected.

First off, what I measured; Current draw at 13.5 Volts was about 4.7 Amperes. At 12.2 Volts the current draw was about 3.5 Amperes. The manual says 3.5 to 4.8 Amperes, The manual agrees with my measurements.

Secondly, this is a thermoelectric cooler. It uses about 40 - 60 Watts of energy so it will not cool down a load of warm soda in a few hours. The manual recommends running this for a few hours prior to adding your material. If you put warm sodas in this, expect to wait 20-25 (or more) hours for them to get cold. If you put in cold sodas, this will keep them very cold while running.

Regarding the cord heating problems that others have stated. I connected this to a 'motorcycle' DC receptacle that I had purchased years ago. My receptacle got quite warm while this cooler was running. This was not a problem with the cooler's plug. It was my receptacle not being able to handle the current draw. If you have a good quality receptacle, this device will work good, without heat problems. My plug did not get hot or melt. If you have a worn receptacle it could get hot.

The plug on this device has a built in (removable) 7.5 Ampere fuse. I would not recommend running this with on a vehicle with the motor off as it would probably run your battery down in after a few hours, there is no low voltage shut off built in.

The cooler gets 5 stars, but the cord gets a 1 star. The other reviewers who rated this cooler and said it only lasted a day or less were probably having the same issue with the cord, it's not made heavy enough to support the cooler. The lighter plug gets so hot, it melts the spring in the tip. My original cord lasted less than a month. When I unplugged it, it was so hot, the tip on the plug blistered my finger,not long after, it melted the spring tip. I had to order a new cord from Igloo at a cost of over $30 (Amazon doesn't sell them). That cord lasted less than a week. Igloo needs to recall the cords. The best fix is to buy a heavy duty replacement plug at Radio Shack and repair it yourself. Igloo should be ashamed.

Took this 28qt cooler on a 4000-mile summer trip from NM-TX-OK-MO-IL-IN-WI and back. Outdoor temps were mostly in the 80s and 90s, but hit 106 in Texas on the way home. Hot summer weather was no match for this cooler! I measured carefully before purchasing and the cooler fit perfectly in the back seat floorboard of my 2009 Prius. It was like it was designed for that floor space! My Prius kills the 12V outlet power when the car is shut off (at gas stations and rest areas), so there was never any danger of running the car battery down. Food stayed cold on the road (without freezing) and although somewhat heavy to carry when loaded, the wall adapter let me use the cooler as a small fridge at motels that didn't have one; just unplugged from the car and plugged into an outlet in the motels/hotels where I stayed. When camping at a no-electric cabin in Wisconsin, I put a 5lb bag of ice in and it worked okay, but not great; ice only lasted about 36 hours. Also used ice for an 8-hour pontoon boat rental/outing and 5lb ice worked fine (although I could have used the 12V cord on the boat if I had remembered to pack it). This cooler is a HUGE improvement over anything I've used before. Food (fruit, lunch meat, even rice and beans!) stayed so fresh in this cooler, I put it all in the fridge when I got home and am still enjoying it almost a week later. No more soggy junk pulled out of old, funky ice water after a long trip! Amazon price (about $89) is low compared to other on-line suppliers and shipping only took a few days -- faster than promised, actually. FINAL POINT: Don't forget to order the 120V wall adapter and don't cover the vent on the top of your cooler. If it can't breathe, it won't work.

This cooler is just awesome.

I bought this cooler a couple months ago because I travel as a military pilot and end up in hotel rooms without a fridge. I also use it at home in the car to transport food safely over longer durations.

I bought an adapter for this that is 120-240V by Bestek so that I can plug it in anywhere in the world and still have a fridge in my room even if the hotel doesn't provide it.

There were problems in the past with the provided 12V cord heating up at the source end and melting. I haven't found this to be a problem on my unit. Igloo assured me that this had been remedied.

Go with the 28 over the 26. It's a newer model and provides a bit more capacity. Remember that there is a cooling unit that sticks down into the cooler from the lid that occupies the space of approximately two small water bottles. This does reduce the effective capacity of the cooler. However, considering that when it's plugged in you wont need ice, this capacity is quickly recovered.

Icing food for storage presents problems such as water intrusion and the need to drain and refill daily. This cooler can just sit plugged in and run.

Remember, it's not regulated. So with the average Peltier set up being able to cool approximately 37-40 degrees F below ambient, the cooler environment is essential to maintaining a safe refrigerator temperature. If the room is too warm (I find above about 76) then the cooler may not stay at a safe refrigerator temperature. Conversely, if it's too cold this cooler may freeze items. To monitor this I purchased a small refrigerator thermometer and just keep it in with the food so I can check it if I'm concerned.

The down sides are that you can't sit on this cooler, and you need to be somewhat more cautious for water intrusion into the cooling unit. But this is a very small pay for such an awesome device.

I wish I bought mine five years ago.
