From the Manufacturer
Koolatron 52-Quart Krusader Cooler
The Koolatron P-85 Krusader Cooler is the perfect companion for your next road trip or tailgate party. This versatile cooler/warmer features a state-of-the-art 12 Volt thermoelectric module, which can cool your favourite drinks and snacks to 40° Fahrenheit below the ambient temperature. That's the cooling power of a 10 pound block of ice without the mess or fuss, just quality cooling for all your snacks and drinks. The P-85 Krusader Cooler is our largest 12 volt cooler available, making it ideal for packing meals for the campsite or plenty of drinks to share with your friends. The P-85 Krusader Cooler fits up to 80 cans, which makes it ideal great for large families or serious tailgating.
The Koolatron Cooler was invented over 30 years ago, but even today it’s a well-kept secret. It replaces traditional ice chests with technology that is even more sophisticated than your home refrigerator, and far better suited for travel. It's ideal for road trips, camping excursions, boating, tailgate parties. Or use your cooler at home or in a dorm room as an extra fridge. Koolatron thermoelectric coolers keep your food and beverages cool without requiring you to stock up on ice every few hours. Our coolers draw less power than your car’s parking light and plug directly into your car's 12-volt power outlet. Once plugged in, the cooler's solid state thermoelectric cooling module--which takes up less space than a 1.5 x 1.5-inch matchbook--will cool the contents to approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit lower than the temperature of the surrounding air. For example, at a temperature of 80 degrees F the contents of the cooler will stay at 40 degrees F. As a result, you can store cool drinks for extended trips, preserve leftovers, and even keep ice cubes whole for three or four days longer than traditional coolers. No more costly stops for soda or snacks, means you will save you both time and money while on the road.
And your Koolatron Cooler doesn’t just keep things cool. What’s amazing is that with a simple flip of the cord your Koolatron becomes a warmer. You can use the Koolatron Cooler to warm food up to 130 degrees F--hot enough for a potluck dinner or a picnic meal--or for warming infant food and bottles while on the road. For over 35 years Koolatron has been manufacturing these portable 12V cooler/warmers right here in North America.
12V Solid state Portable Cooler/warmer plugs directly into your vehicle's 12V outlet.

NASA-Inspired 12V Portable Refrigerator.
Because of the tough demands and reliability requirements of space, scientists had to find something more dependable and less bulky than traditional refrigeration coils, gases and compressors. Extensive research finally led to a miraculous solid state component: the Thermoelectric Module.
The Koolatron Cooler has only one moving part, the fan motor, so there are no parts to wear out or break down. Since the thermoelectric module is a solid state heat pump, it’s not affected by tilting, jarring or vibration--which often causes compressor based refrigerators to fail. The 12 Volt cooling module is no bigger than a matchbook, yet delivers the cooling power of a full 10 pound block of ice.
From Satellites to SUVs:
Thermoelectric cooling has been proven with over 50 years of use in the most rigorous space, missile control, and laboratory applications. Koolatron, a North American company, was the first manufacturer to make this technology available to families, boaters, fishermen, campers, and hunters or for anyone on the go. Home refrigeration has come a long way since the ice box and blocks of ice. But on the road, the only choice for many years was to rely on messy ice chests and suffer through soggy, even spoiled food. Now all the advantages of home refrigeration cooling are available electronically in your car while traveling.
Consider Your Last Trip:
You finally got away on your vacation and are cruising comfortably in the car along a busy interstate with only a few rest stops or road side restaurants. The kids are hungry. Your fully stocked Koolatron Cooler could have come to your rescue with fruits, sandwiches and drinks--all fresh and cold. Everyone could have helped themselves. With the option to choose from over 15 different sizes and shapes of Koolatron Coolers, you have the right size cooler for your trip. You save precious cargo space and also save valuable vacation time and money with fewer stops and fewer expensive on-the-go restaurant bills.
Just Load It Up, Plug It In, and Save Money as Well:
On road trips, just plug your Koolatron into your car’s 12 volt power outlet. Your Koolatron will use less power than a tail light. If you decide to carry it to a picnic spot or your favorite fishing hole, the Koolatron Cooler can hold its cooling capacity without power for several hours.
With two Koolatron Coolers you can have one to keep drinks cold and another to keep food warm. A family of four on a week’s vacation on the road can save more money than the cost of the Koolatron while being able to picnic at rest stops or anywhere the family prefers.
A Wide Number of Practical Uses:
The Koolatron Cooler offers a number of benefits to anyone who travels frequently in a vehicle. Great for day trips, long overnight journeys, pleasure boating, fishing, camping or just traveling around town. And because there's only one moving part (the 12-volt fan), virtually nothing in the cooler can wear out. The Koolatron Cooler can also be 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 cameras and film equipment in extreme climates.
With over 35 years of manufacturing experience building, designing and improving 12V Thermoelectric coolers at facilities in North America, Koolatron Coolers are sold worldwide, offering a wide variety of different size coolers to fit the personal needs of every consumer. Whether needed for short trips, long range hauling or tailgating, they are built to last and provide you with the highest quality travel cooler/warmer possible.

Top Customer Reviews
Reason #1: It can only cool, at best, to 40 to 45 degrees F below the ambient temperature. (Read the Koolatron info for yourself) That means if it's 95 outside the box, the coldest it will get inside the box is 50 degrees F. Not too chilly if you you were hoping for a (n)ice COLD drink. Also not as low a temperature as is recommended for food storage safety. Daily temps of 90 to 95 are commonplace in many areas in the summer. If you have warm stuff you want to chill, it takes a long time to get the temp down.
Reason #2: It is a battery hog. It will draw your auto battery down an uncomfortable amount over a days running, unless the battery is receiving a charge as in, the engine is running. So I found it not too useful for a camping trip of longer duration than just a single day or a day trip, where (a) there was no AC power available, and (b) you didn't want to drive or run the engine every day.
I'd say it works well enough to be used as a transportation cooler. Load it at point A, unload or use the contents up shortly at point B.
I have been much happier with the Extreme type of cooler offered by Coleman and others. These have extra thick walls. If used with frozen bottles of water there's no melted ice (water) to deal with. Maybe a little condensation, but that's all. And they keep my stuff COLD for several days at a stretch.
Just my opinion.
