They have the power draw as 4.4amps, but I reckon that's on the max cool down mode.Gee that sounds like great value! Will be interested to see how long it lasts and power draw, though I imagine they will only stock them for a short while. What is the warranty like?
Music to my ears Tony!It's a Secop (Danfoss) BD35 compressor so that part's reliable and power consumption is typically around 4A when cycling. We bought one during early summer and have been using it as a freezer while the 60L Engel spends its life as a fridge. When you live 50km from the nearest large chain food store and your days are 40+, you need something to keep frozen stuff frozen!
And that it did. Performs flawlessly. Worth every cent. I have a small issue with ciggy plugs falling out but that's easy enough to fix by changing them over to Andersons. I set the freezer's digital temperature control to -20 and let it go - it always brings the stuff home in a nicely frozen state no matter the heat of the day.
No, but I was in Anaconda yesterday & they have OzTrail fridges on special if you have an Anaconda card - $499 for the 45L & an amazing $599 for the 80L dual zone fridge. They have an LG compressor though & I have no idea whether that's good or bad.Are they still on sale?
I had to replace the 12V lighter plug on my Aldi fridge - it kept falling out of the socket, so I cut it off and put an Anderson plug in its place. Now it's perfect. Set at -20C, it was holding -19C on a 37C day in the back of my canopy with the windows down.Went up through Marree to Oodnadatta, Mt. Dare, Finke, Old Andado, Santa Teresa & home via Kingoonya with lots of side tracks last month with the Aldi fridge. Some of those roads were a tad corrugated, especially Bloods Creek - Mt. Dare & the way into Mac Clark Park. It didn't miss a beat!
I have the same problem, so, i'm thinking of changing over to the merit style plug and socket. similar in looks, but much more durable and handles more current!G'day Tony!
It won't stop it falling out of the 12V socket though lol.
Merit's are just small circumference 12V cig sockets ericcs - the aldi fridge has them stock standard. It's just that little red plastic ring on the 12V plug that comes off & then it's a merit.
