I bought the vector cooler warmer (16 can version, same item), and tried it out. The metal element inside got cold, but it couldn't chill a small bottle of water after 3 hours- no way it was 40 degrees belwo my room temp of 75 degrees. No wonder this thing is always on clearance. It did a little better on metal cans of soda directly touching the element, but not by much. The manual says for best results the food should be put in cold, or with an icepack, but as soon as it's shut off theres no insulation to keep the food cold, so the food quickly reaches room temp, according to the manual! Besides if I have to put in pre-chilled food and icepacks Im beter off using my insulated cooler which works, and is much more space efficient! Plus, the cooler only ostensibly brings the temp down to up to 40 degrees below ambient temp ( after 3 hours). I guess in a car where the temps go up to 130 degrees in the sun it would keep the food at 90 or so. I bought it for fifteen dol. on clearance , but returned it today. It simply wasn't worth the price. I would stay clear of this product. The only exeption I can think of is for someone who needs it only for metal cans of soda or beer and can wait several hours for a cool drink, although a cooler would still be more practical and cost effective.

I bought this cooler in preparation for a cross-country roadtrip this coming summer, with a 2-yr-old who loves his milk. I also bought the ac wall adapter (sold separately) so that we could keep the milk safe and cold overnight in a hotel in case there's no mini-fridge in our room. I sure am glad I bought both! Before we even left for our trip, our fridge at home konked out. We had to throw out lots of food, but we were able to keep enough milk cold and fresh for our little guy by keeping it in this cooler. It was plugged in for 48 straight hours, and worked like a champ. Needless to say, the milk was already cold when we put it in there, or it wouldv'e been down the drain for the milk too. Which brings me to this point: nowhere in the literature does the manufacturer claim that this product is a chiller. Of course it won't chill things that are at room temp, that's not what its made for. It won't chill warm water any more than it will cook a cold sandwich. But for the purpose it is advertised, to keep cold things cold, I found it to do a great job. It really came through for us in a pinch.

I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas. He is a truck driver & brings his lunch on the road with him everyday. Usually, he brings sandwiches & other things that can be kept at room temperature. Well, he's so happy with this product because now he can bring a larger variety of items, such as grilled cheese sandwiches, pasta leftovers & hot dogs. He said it works great & keeps everything nice & hot. He hasn't had a need for the cooler part yet, but the warmer makes it all worth the purchase!

I bought this because I have medication that needs to be refrigerated. I've used it for water and also used it to keep things warm. Mine gets very cold very quick and heats up so quick I had to actually take a bag out because I was afraid it would burn the plastic bag I put in. So I turned it off and it kept the items warm till I got home which was over an hour. As far as cold, I only use an icepack if I'm going to leave stuff in the car for a couple hours. I forgot it one time and left my water in overnight till about 2:00 the next afternoon and the icepack was only melted about halfway. I'd say that's pretty good.
