Frequently Asked Questions: Car Fridge Freezers

What is the best battery to run a car fridge?

The best battery for powering a car fridge depends on various factors such as the fridge's power consumption, duration of use, and available space in your vehicle. Generally, deep cycle batteries or dual-purpose batteries are recommended for running car fridges, as they provide sufficient power and are designed for repeated charging and discharging cycles.

Can a car battery power a fridge?

While a car battery can technically power a fridge, it's important to consider the battery's capacity and the fridge's power requirements. Running a fridge off a car battery for an extended period may drain the battery and potentially leave you stranded. It's advisable to use a dedicated portable power pack or a dual battery system in vehicles for continuous fridge operation without risking the vehicle's starting battery.

Can a car fridge be used at home?

Yes, many portable car fridges can be used at home with a 12-240v power adapter. However, it's essential to ensure that the fridge is compatible with the power source and that proper ventilation is maintained.

Can I fit a fridge in my car?

The feasibility of fitting a fridge in your car depends on various factors, including the available space, the size of the fridge, and any modifications required to accommodate it. Many of EvaKool's car fridges come in compact sizes from 47L-95L designed to fit in most vehicles, while larger fridges may require additional planning and installation considerations.

How do car fridges work?

Car fridges work on the same principles as regular refrigerators but are designed to operate efficiently in vehicles. Here's how they work:

Compressor System: Many car fridges use a compressor-based cooling system similar to that of household refrigerators. This system relies on a compressor, condenser, evaporator, and refrigerant fluid to transfer heat from inside the fridge to the external environment.

Compression and Expansion: The compressor compresses the refrigerant gas, increasing its pressure and temperature. This high-pressure gas then flows through the condenser coils located outside the fridge, where it dissipates heat and condenses into a high-pressure liquid.

Heat Dissipation: The condensed liquid refrigerant then passes through an expansion valve or capillary tube, which reduces its pressure and temperature. As it expands, it absorbs heat from the interior of the fridge, cooling the air inside.

Cooling Cycle: The cooled air circulates inside the fridge, keeping the contents cold. Any heat absorbed by the refrigerant is expelled outside the fridge through the condenser coils, completing the cooling cycle.

Thermoelectric Cooling: Some car fridges use a thermoelectric cooling system, which operates based on the Peltier effect. In this system, a voltage applied to semiconductor materials creates a temperature difference, with one side becoming hot and the other side becoming cold. This cold side is used to cool the interior of the fridge.

Overall, car fridges are designed to be compact, efficient, and capable of operating on 12V DC power sources commonly found in vehicles, making them ideal for keeping beverages and perishable items cold while on the road.
