This incredible cooler uses state-of-the art thermoelectric cooling technology. It features a durable brushless motor for internal air circulation and even temperature distribution. This cooler can be used horizontally like a chest or in a vertical position, like a fridge.
Koolatron coolers have been proudly manufactured in North America for over 20 years.
Explaining Thermoelectric Refrigeration
Thermoelectric refrigeration uses a principle called the Peltier effect to pump heat electronically. Named after a French scientist who discovered it in 1834, the Peltier effect describes the process of electrical currents passing through a series of tiny metal cube junctions, thereby transferring heat from one metal to the other. When connected to a heat-absorbing device on one side and a heat-dissipating device on the other, solid-state thermoelectric modules are capable of transferring large quantities of heat. The Voyager cooler applies this technology through its internal aluminum cold plate fins, which absorb heat from the contents (food and beverages), and then use the thermoelectric modules to transfer it to the heat-dissipating fins under the control panel. The only moving part is a small 12-volt fan that disperses the heat into the air. Thermoelectric modules--which are ideally suited to recreational applications because they are lightweight, compact, insensitive to motion or tilting, have no moving parts, and can operate directly from 12-volt batteries.
The Voyager offers a number of benefits to anyone who travels frequently in a vehicle. While it's not quite as portable as a traditional cooler, it still offers plenty of on-the-go freedom, making it great for day trips, long overnight journeys, pleasure boating, fishing, and camping. It's also extremely efficient, continually reducing the temperature within the first three hours depending on the contents of the unit and the surrounding air. And because there's only one moving part (the 12-volt fan), virtually nothing in the cooler can wear out. The Voyager also proves invaluable as an extra fridge in a recreation room or basement bar, the main fridge in a dorm room, as a medical cooler for samples or temperature-sensitive drugs, and as a storage case for heat-sensitive camera and film equipment in extreme climates.
