A chest solar refrigerator

I saw this in a Tiny House news letter. I did look at it for just a minute mostly just scanned over the articular. Thought I would post it here because I hear so much of people talking about using solar power and being OFF grid. I see that this is a very pricey item. I do not know anything about solar power or camping OFF Grid in my camper( tented off grid in our younger days) I just thought it was interesting and that some of the folks here might enjoy reading. Hope I was right

Happy Camping

Well, this girl's callin' foul..."solar powered fridge", my foot. Unless of course you hook up the 12v battery it runs off of to a solar panel and ten amp charge controller...none of which is included, of course. Link to ad

Nice advertising angle, though!

Yes, "Designed for off-grid solar applications where grid power is not readily available or unreliable." AND you have a solar set-up adequate for the energy gobbler.

Are you NE or NW Mn.. We live off grid just over the border in Ontario near Lake Superior and were just talking about how good our power production has been this winter.

We have been using our outdoor solar powered refrigerator since November
"2 Coleman coolers sitting outside on our deck " I checked this morning and even though it is cloudy everything in the coolers is frozen solid

Living in Wisconsin...if you turned them off, wouldn't the coolers still be frozen solid if they are outside? Or is it getting warm enough to thaw?

Unless I miss my guess, that's pretty much Steve's point, Leonard...I'm thinkin' those Colemans are powered by nothing but The Winter Weather!

I think I've got it. If I camp in Wisconsin, I'll never need power for refrigeration or even for air conditioning.

OOH, ok, a "dry" sense of humor. Gotcha. Part of the culture in those parts of the woods.

In all my time camping in Minnesota and Wisconsin I have run my trailers A/C only 2 times and my home does not have A/C. We have had freezing temperatures and snow on the ground since November . We make large batches of sausage (100 Lbs) , chili ,(10 Gallons) Spaghetti sauce (10 Gallons ) , meatballs and dago patties (60 lbs) in the winter because the outdoors is one large freezer . It's free , it works and there are no mechanical parts to fail!! It was - 22 Deg F Below Zero here on Monday morning and the night time temperatures are predicted to be below zero for the next week to ten days
