Just picked up a brand new 35l mobi cool (waeco) brand fridge/warmer from AMART ALL SPORT - with a cooler bag for $139.00.

Even of this bad boy lasts a year it will be worth it.

thought I would let you all know as a few people have said that they have kids and these are a bagin price.

Looks like a good deal.

These are thermolectric (sp?) coolers and work really well when used with minimal amounts of ice or ice packs

Not sure it says in the manual not to use ice or ice packs though?

Has a car plug in and also 240 volt.

Also has a battery save device on it for when in the car?

Let us know how it goes ... I've often thought about getting a warmer/ cooler as opposed to a camping fridge.

Good luck!

in all honesty scol unless you need/want to freeze items a cooler is a far more viable investment! provided the items you put in it are cold and you run it for a few hours before filling it up they work excellently!.

We used to use an esky for drinks and the cooler for food. because we werent in and out of the cooler all the time every thing stayed cool and best of all... DRY!
Infact in some ways I think they are better than fridges as i find sometimes my food still gets that "damp" feeling in the fridge.

Plus I havent quite mastered it (my CF-80) yet and I keep freezing beers in the FRIDGE section! :shock:

will let you all know how it goes but after some research and fact finding this bad boy should be good enough for us .

If some one has an email for mummee let her know she was looking for something cheap?
