To give you some background what I have is a 100 watt solar panel mounted on top of my vehicle. In the back of my vehicle I have two deep cycle marine batteries each with a rating of 105 amp hours for a total of 210 amp hours. This is what I run my 12 volt appliances off of. My job is asphalt paving. More often than not it is extremely hot out when I am working. I wanted something that could keep my lunch and drinks cold. For the last few months I have been using a well known thermoelectric cooler. After about 6 hours of constantly running it would get my drinks or food down to a cool temperature but not cold. The problem with thermoelectric coolers is most of them run nonstop. They never shut off and it only cools down to 40 degrees below the outside temperature on average and still keeps running. This constant running of the fans on that cooler would start to drain my batteries on cloudier days. Sometimes to the point where I would shut it off so it wouldn't ruin my batteries. I started looking at new options. Something with at least a control where I could set a thermostat or something that wouldn't have to run all the time. I came across the Dometic. I watched many videos and read many reviews on this product. I figured this was the best bang for my buck.
I received the Dometic CF18 recently. I quickly replaced it with my thermoelectric cooler and monitored the battery usage on it. Every time I went to check if the volts dropped on my batteries they were 100% charged. This fridge/freezer is no different than your home fridge. It runs for a few minutes to keep it at temperature then shuts of for a while. When it shuts down it usually gives my solar panel enough time to completely charge my batteries up again. I have the inside of the cooler down to 36 degrees most of the time. More than enough to keep my items cold and chilled. I can easily run this 24 hours a day now. Not that I would need too but I could. I had it set to freezing the first day and it was awesome at work when I pulled a drumstick ice cream cone out of my vehicle in front of co workers. This is truly a fridge and a freezer. I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. I also purchased the insulated cover for it but I am still waiting for it to be shipped.
UPDATE as of April 28, 2017
I still use this cooler on a daily basis. Haven't had any problems what so ever with it. I liked it so much after my first purchase I bought a second one as a backup just in case. I did receive the insulated cover for the fridge and it also is great. Fits the cf-18 perfectly with a few small pockets to store cords and keeps contents colder for a longer period and less runtime. Still lovin this machine.
It does make some noise but I don't think you could have any compressor running absolutely silent. It is barely noticeable, can fall asleep close to it NP, being a very light sleeper I was concerned with the noise factor.
If this unit is large enough for your needs, the price and functionality are both rated 5 stars.
I have had this refer running steady since it came out of the box. The unit works Fantastic. I purchased the 110 volt adapter and am very happy with this whole purchase. I use it 12 volt camping in my teardrop trailer and 110 volt in my room at the house. Really a great all around unit. This is a very important appliance that needs to work great always and it does, a real performer. So very happy... Thanks Dometic.
This unit has been running for over 2 years solid and still works GREAT! Still quite, compressor does not come on very often. I unplugged it to clean it a few days ago, still full of cold drinks, I wanted to see how long it would stay cold for and at 30 hours + it was still very cool, cleaned up and running again. What a great investment. The only thing that's worn out a bit is the latch. I wish it had a better latch/more heavy duty or a better design. I still give this product 5 STARS all day long. Very happy.
