Even the latch on the top door is great quality - has a spring action the puts tension on the lid to keep it somewhat down even before you latch. Smart. Only complaint is it came with a dent in the front of it that happened between the first box and second 'shipping' box at the factory. Ah, but so what, it's nice and seems to work great. Did the flash freeze, got down to -2 and stayed there. Outside didn't get cool so the insulation must be good.
I'm a big solar guy, so when I go camping will run this off the sun + battery during the day and just a battery at night. I will post a pic showing it with a 1/2 gallon of milk inside, to give you some perspecitve.
As for this... while they made a smaller unit, The price difference between this one and the next smallest one, made it a no brainer on which one to get. More space for cheaper price....
So, After using this for a few months, I gotta say I love it. There are a few things to keep in mind when getting this. One, its either a fridge or a freezer. It doesnt do both at the same time. You can set it to 15 degrees and it will keep everything nicely frozen(ice cream even). You can alternatively set it to 30 degrees, and it will keep everything cold enough to satisfy, but not so cold it freezes anything(so no milksicles). The problem here is that I like having some stuff frozen, and other stuff just plain cold. So, what I did was get a peice of foam insulation(the hard board kind) and cut it to size and fit it into the cooler. It created a partition, allowing the stuff closest to the cooling unit to stay frozen, while the stuff thats on the other side, stays cold, but not TOO cold. Fair warning, you might have to poke very small holes in the partition if its not allowing enough cold through depending on how good your insulation is. I would try it without poking holes to see how this method works for you.
The reason I took away a star though is because of the handles, and how heavy it is. The weight isnt an issue until you go to move it into or out of the truck. Expect to ask for help depending on how much you bench. According to amazon, its 62 lbs, but adding in a little groceries that might still be in it when you move it, you can look at upwards to 80 lbs(possibly more). Lifting that much up into the cab is a tough chore that I can only do through the passenger side, especially if you got kinda lazy from lack of exercise. The problem I have(which you might have gathered from other reviews) is the quality of the handles. Some basic metal handles would do wonders here, but instead, they used crappy plastic ones that pop off, and I suspect will break one day while trying to carry it. If handled wrong, yes, they come off REALLY easily. I warn you not to trust them too much. aside from the handles, this thing is amazingly sturdy. Definitely built for rugged use, just clearly not built to be moved very often.
Also, for those of you thinking of using them in a truck, it WILL NOT fit into the preset compartment built for your fridge in most trucks. Only the ones that dont have a cabinet to house the fridge(Internationals are one) will fit this. I have a Freightshaker Columbia and ended up putting it into the lower bunk and sleeping up in the top. Currently asking permission from the company to unbolt the cabinet and store it in the terminal's parts trailer so I can put this on the floor between the seat and bunk. Alternatively, you can sit it on the floor in front of your bunk, but its a huge waste of space, and horrible to climb over every morning. I suppose if you dont have two bunks, you might not have a choice, but thats totally on you to figure out. Ill post exact measurements later when I get the chance.
On a final note for those of you who want to try to keep it in the bunk next to you. If you lean against it and try to sleep with it in the bunk, every time it kicks on, it might wake you up as it shudders from the compressor kicking on. I actually thought there was something wrong with the truck for a week until I realized it was the fridge shuddering and not the actual truck. You wont notice this until you are actually leaning against it or sitting directly next to it.
