What I omitted to mention was that we have owned a Tropicool - the big orange things - and found we were buying ice twice a day.
We've been down the compressor-fridge road and sold our large Waeco some time back and don't want to be faced with hauling a really heavy item about. Hence the thermo-electric thingies.

Nothing in thermo-electric, static cold, 3-way will EVER come close to the cooling capacity of the compressor type fridges.End of story. Maybe you should have gone for a "liftable" 40lt instead?????

We're going to find out the real-world use of two thermo-electric fridges and we're going to do some testing here at home with them and the Willow ice-box with frozen drinking water.
