ARB fridge freezers are the ideal way to keep your food and beverages chilled or frozen on your 4x4 adventures, regardless of ambient conditions. Not to be confused with less effective 12 volt 'coolers', the ARB unit is a true refrigerator/freezer. Own one and you'll never again find your lunch water-logged by shifting ice, and there'll always be a cold drink on hand during the sweltering summer months. The 50 quart model is the most popular size. Suitable for many medium to large SUV's, wagons and pickups the internal capacity which boasts the ability to hold 72, 12 ounce cans.
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.

Don't use the freezer to freeze things, it is designed to maintain previous frozen food.
You must independently measure the "real" temperature and then adust the setting . When it is full of food, check both the top and bottom. The top will be considerably warmer. There is a setting to calibrate the thermostat display, but it didn't have the range needed to correct the error. The temp also varies as much as +/- 4 degrees based on thermostat hysteresis. This is needed to prevent cycling the compressor.
Voltage is important. On battery power it can range from 12.8 to 12.0 (don't discharge past 50% capacity). When the ARB draws current, there will be voltage drop across your battery plus the voltage drop in your connection and power cord to the ARB. This can be as much .5 volts. Your ARB may be trying to run on 11.0 volts. There is a setting to lower the "turn off" threshold. If you leave it as the defult "high" setting, you may get the compressor trying to turn on, dropping the voltage, and turning off. When it turns off, voltage drop goes away,and the ARB tries to restart the compressor. This cycling is hard on the compressor. Set the compressor shut down to the lowest voltage. The ARB draws more current when the voltage is low. On a fulll battery it may draw 2.5 amps. At 50% it may draw as much as 4 amps. In 90 degree weather a shaded ARB will require 30 amp hours, daily.
You can insulate the outside of the unit and improve efficiency as long as you don't interfere with the air flow vents on the lower rear. Setting it on an insulated base will also help. Other factors such as the temperature setting and how frequently you open it is a bigger factor.
The ARB is not as large or as heavy as putting two weeks of food into a conventional cooler with enough ice to keep cold.
The compressor section is sensitive to dust. If you can't keep it in a dust-free environment, you need to blow it out before each trip. How long the compressor runs is a function of how much air is moving through it.
I have tried expensive, name-brand coolers; dry ice; portable ice makers. The propane fridge in my RV was too small and the temperature varied with ambient from 45 to below freezing. I have tried solar power. Unless I had direct sunlight, all day, it couldn't keep up. I have resigned myself to running a generator 90 minutes a day. I am happy with the ARB. It is reliable, and reasonably efficient. Life is good.
We bought it for use in our camper/adventure van for camping/surf/mountain bike trips. We plug it into our Goal Zero Yeti1250, which has its own permanently mounted 150watt solar panel for charging. We rarely stay in developed campgrounds and do mostly off grid trips.
The ARB works great and cools as expected for a $$$ 12V cooler. We just got back from a 2 week road trip with the ARB as our only cooler. I did order the canvas travel bag for the ARB, and think it was a good investment, more on that later.
A couple notes in no particular order.
- The ARB requires 80-90 watts for startup power then the power consumption settles into the 55 watt range. (The goal zero has a power consumption display).
- After about 8-9 days of camping (without consistent sunlight for the solar panel), the ARB ran down the Goal Zero Yeti's voltage to where it didn't have enough voltage to start the compressor. We were also using the Goal Zero to run our roof vent, charge cell phones, iPads, run LED lighting, etc. We could hear the compressor trying to kick on, but it didn't have quite enough voltage. Just be aware that the startup requires decent voltage in the battery. This is important for RVs and campervans with a house battery. Plugging in overnight at a campground fixed the issue. Just be aware of battery usage for long trips. Definitely would be possible to run down your car battery with the ARB if you were parked for a few days in a backcountry camp spot.
-the ARB is not insulated like a Yeti or Coleman Extreme, or one of the other high end coolers out there. You can feel cold bleed through the metal parts of the cooler. I bought the canvas travel bag and cut double thick reflectix (foil lined insulation) to go inside the canvas travel bag. You can barely tell it is there and it made a big difference in my ability to feel cold bleed through the cooler. See the attached pics to get an idea of how I added extra insulation to the ARB travel bag. Note that the travel bag does have foil facing, but it is pretty thin. I used a sharpie, straight edge, razor, and shears to mark and cut out double width foil insulation to add to the inside of the travel bag. Took about 20 minutes. Pic of the ARB strapped into our camper van (2007 Ford E350 custom conversion) have the extra insulation installed, you can barely tell it's there.
Overall we are happy with the ARB. Not carrying ice is really nice. We plug the ARB into the campervan 12V outlet when driving, then switch back to the Goal Zero Yeti when parked. For longer trips (we are doing a month long road trip next summer through western Colorado), I plan on chaining in a second 100ah battery to the Goal Zero, primarily for running the ARB for long term off grid use.
