Wagan 10.5 Liter 12v Personal Fridge/Warmer keeps food and beverages at the perfect serving temperature as you drive around in your vehicle. It keeps drinks cool and keeps perishables fresh (without requiring ice) until you arrive at your destination, whether you are on the way home or going to the office.
Using this makes it convenient to save time and money while you’re on the road. All you have to do is take some drinks out of your fridge plus some snacks like yogurt, string cheese, nuts, fruit, etc. and place them inside the unit, bring to your vehicle, plug it into your 12v outlet and start driving. So next time you’re hungry or thirsty, it’s as easy as taking something out of the unit instead of detouring from your intended destination and then waiting in line again after you place your order.
It also doubles as a warmer too; simply move the power switch to warm instead of cool. The internal capacity is 10.5 liters, which is equivalent to 15 soda cans. Its cooling capacity is 35 to 40 degrees F below room temperature, and it can heat up to 140 degrees F.
This Wagan 10.5 Liter 12v Personal Fridge/Warmer is also loaded with features. The top of the unit features 2 built-in cup holders (so drinks don’t spill inside the vehicle), a padded armrest that a person sitting next to the unit can use to place their lower arm and elbow for extra comfort, and a non-slip rubber pad for placing your items on as you drive. A built-in shoulder strap allows you to easily transport the unit from one place to another.
This personal fridge/warmer is made of superior foam insulation. CFC-free cooling (no refrigerant) ensures that it is safe to use. Additional options for using this outside of the vehicle are available, with the purchase of an optional AC adapter (Wagan item 9903), which is sold separately. The AC adapter will let you use this personal fridge/warmer at home, your office, hotel room or dorm room too.

"My Wagan EL2296 has quit cooling or heating. It has power because the pilot lights both come on, and the fan runs. Can you advise me if I most likely need a new circuit board or a new cool/heat element? I don't see either on your available parts list. Any help would be appreciated."
P.S. To my fellow Amazon members, I would mention that I have an old full size 40 quart Coleman that rode in my semi long-hauling for a year (130,000 miles) and is still working, so either I got lucky or else Coleman has managed to build a very reliable cooler. At present I am a local driver slip seating to various trucks, so I don't care to bring that bigger Coleman along. You can view the 2 Coleman models at their website.
MY ORIGINAL RATING: Everything was thought of on this cooler. Padding for the armrest, a non-slip tray that will tend to hold incidentals such as my smart phone. And you get 2 cup holders, CD storage, etc. So I chose this one due to all of these features, plus it is rated to get things a few degrees colder than the competition. I can attest that is cold enough. I have tried it with keeping food hot and after 4 hours it was only lukewarm, so this was disappointing, but I rarely want hot anyway, I got it mostly to keep things cold and it is great for that. The shoulder strap makes it easy to move to the truck. The power cord is generously long. The only negative is that the power cord does is not secured where it goes into the cigarette lighter plug; mine pulled out and I had to re-solder it, and when I did this minor task I made sure to rig a stopper on the cord so it won't pull out so easy again. I would recommend this for sure, but I would also recommend you take the cigarette plug apart (easy, the 2 halves just unscrew from each other like opening a jar) and use silicone or tape or something to create a stopper so the cord wont pull out of the soldered connection.
I personally don't see us using it too much more.
It has molded in seat belt slots under the lid that allow strapping it in to a seat with seat belts if that is your choice. Since it is relatively narrow I personally place it on the floor neatly between my front seats making for easy access. The two molded in cup holders in front of the lid keep drinks in easy reach. The top of the lid is softly padded and has a small tray molded in.
Like some of the other reviews it was noted it is not a refrigerator. It is just a cooler. In my use it cools room temperature warm drinks down pretty quickly and keeps my food cold enough that I haven't had any issues with spoilage. The switch has cool, off, and heat settings but I haven't used the heating yet. The switch has green and red LED light making it easy to know if it is on.
In my personal pickup it fits perfectly in the middle of my 40/60 bench seat strapped in with the middle seat belt making easy access and the soft top makes a good added arm rest. The fan is a little noisy if nothing else is running but if engine or radio is playing I can't hear it at all. A detachable zippered CD/DVD pouch hooks to the side and is a nice added touch for storing music and video discs.
For me this has worked out well and I would recommend it to anyone needing small trasportable food/drink storage in their vehichle.
I attempted to use it as a regular cooler once if stopped working, but a Styrofoam cooler would have worked much better and been much cheaper.
