ARB fridge freezers are the ideal way to keep your food and beverages chilled or frozen during your adventures--regardless of ambient conditions. Not to be confused with less effective 12-volt "coolers", the ARB unit is a true refrigerator/freezer with an efficient but powerful Danfoss compressor and control system. Own one and you'll never again find your lunch waterlogged by shifting ice, and there'll always be a cold drink on hand during the sweltering summer months.
Optional mounting slides ensure
exceptionally easy fridge access
Many other 12-volt coolers use weak compressors to reduce the temperature of your food and beverages. ARB fridge freezers come equipped with robust Danfoss compressors to provide powerful refrigeration that can actually cools your food and drinks down--and then keeps them cold. All ARB fridge freezer models are capable of reducing the interior temperature to 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
ARB fridge freezers are designed to both actively and passively cool your food and drinks--even while the vehicle is off. When the internal temperature of the fridge rises above the digital thermostat's setting, the compressor activates to cool the contents back down. The adjustable integrated battery protection system allows the fridge to sip battery power while your vehicle is off, keeping your food and drinks cold without overly draining your battery. Heavy duty insulation and hardware helps maintain chilly temperatures. The 50-quart model is able to maintain sub-freezing temperatures in 90 degree heat while only drawing 0.87 amps per hour from a 12-volt power source. That’s less power than a single headlamp draws. Once to temperature, ARB fridge freezers consume the least amount of power when compared to other leading brands.
Generous Compartments Let You Take More on the Road
The 50-quart model is the most popular ARB fridge size, and is perfect for small groups. Its footprint is suitable for most medium to large SUVs, wagons, and pickup trucks. The main internal compartment measures 13.27" deep, 11.22" wide, and 15.79" high; and the dairy compartment measures 5.95" deep, 11.22" wide, and 8.11" high. It can hold up to 72 12-ounce cans, and can also accommodate a two-liter bottle of soda.
Heavy-Duty Construction for Years of Use
Designed with travelers and off-road drivers in mind, all ARB fridge freezer models come equipped with a super-durable patented hinge system with a front-opening lid that provides easy access to fridge contents. This design is compatible with ARB fridge freezer slides, which provide quick drawer-like access to the entire unit and allows you to bolt the fridge to your vehicle. ARB fridge freezers can be mounted at extreme angles up to 30 degrees without affecting operation or reliability.
Two separate power cords are included. The DC power cord connects to your vehicle's DC power outlet, providing 12 and 24-volt power to the unit while you're on the go. The AC power cord plugs into a standard household electrical socket, and supplies power to the fridge when you're at home or at your destination. A built-in cable retention system keeps the power cords neat when not in use. The power system is completely self-contained within the fridge unit, so there's no external transformers or power "bricks" to worry about.
As with any refrigerator, it is important to have quality wiring running to the power outlet that you are plugging the fridge into. This minimizes harmful voltage drops which can harm internal parts. For increased product life, it is recommended that you protect the fridge freezer from weather and the elements.

That unit failed last winter after five years of use, and I decided to research the available options before our vacation last month. I only now wish that i had done that years ago. The refrigerator which we had had a thermoelectric cooling unit, certainly better than a cooler using ice packs but not capable of acting as a true freezer and most importantly having the disadvantage that i mentioned of a considerable power draw. This unit (and a few other brands as well) has a compressor and is a true refrigerator freezer. In addition to the power buton it has easily accessible controls (and a visible thermometer) on the front of the unit to change the temperature setting and also set the maximum battery drawdown allowable before the unit will shut off if you are not running your automobile engine. It has a lid that is both easily removed and reattached, and a 50 quart storage area with a basket and divider that allows the compartment to be subdivided into two or three sections. This is epecially convenient for separting things such as produce, dairy and fruit from other refrigerated items. The unit is completely CFC free, and the cabinet is coated zinc steel. There is also a 120-240 volt cord, so the unit can also be used in a home, cabin, garage or anywhere with electrical power. It does not evenm have to be emptied or restocked or can be used as supplemental refrigerator freezer for overflow (or beer or soda storage during picnics and parties) at any time.
The exterior dimensions are H20", W15"" and D27.8".The interior dimensions of the main compartment with the basket not divided are are H15.8", W11.2" and D13.3''.The adjacent small area over the compressor is H8.1", W11.2" and D6". Remember that you will also need to allow sufficient clearance around the unit for the air vents to have proper circulation, you cannot put it in a tight enclosed area or right next to a wall..
You can also purchase an optional transit bag to keep the exterior scratch free or a tie down system if you plan to use it in offroad travel or boating, but we did not consider these necessary so I cannot review them
After a lot of research and reading reviews on several different sites, I decided that it was worth the much higher expense of buying a true refigerator frezzer with a compressor rather than a thermoelectric cooler. A 50 quart unit seemed adequate for personal needs, and units approximately that size seem to be the most popular among casual users who use them for personal trips. I decided to buy the ARB unit, which was neither the cheapest or most expensive. ARB is the largest Australian manufactucter and distributor of 4X4 accessories, and this was originally designed for use in the rugged (and hot) Australian outback. It had gotten excellent reviews and I liked the design, the capabilties and the ease of use of the controls. Amazon had a very opmpetitive price and free shiiping with two day delivery, which guaranteed that it would arrive in sufficient time before our trip so that I could test it for a few days to make sure that it functioned properly.
We used it during our sixteen day trip which totaled over 2300 miles and it performed flawlessly. The unit cooled to the indicated temperature rapidly. It kept our food cold, it kept our drinks cold and even kept the remainder of our subs fresh when we stopped to eat on the road. The power draw was low enough so that the unit did not warm up during our overnight stays. It has also been a real benefit to use it recently to transport our refrigerated and frozen food to our home from the warehouse club about 25 miles away.
My wife still considers it an expensive toy, but agrees that it worked exceptionally well and made our trip simpler and more enjoyable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

As a test, I put the fridge in my car to see how long it would last before it shutoff due to low battery voltage. After five days, it was still going strong, but I had to end the test because I needed to drive my car. My point is that I have no worries about leaving it running for long periods of time.
When I bought the fridge, I was a little concerned about how well it would cool in a hot car. It does amazingly well. My car gets up to over 150 degrees when it is sitting in the hot sun, but the fridge stays at the preset 33 degrees all day long.
There are several manufacturers of these 12 volt fridges, and I did a lot of research before I purchased the ARB unit. It is a very well designed fridge, with the removable lid, easy to use controls, and low power usage. My only complaint is the price, but Amazon has the lowest price I've found.

This Fridge continues to perform flawlessly! Not cheap, but one of the best purchases I've ever made!
