Introduction of car refrigerator with compressorCan I just run a normal bar fridge off an inverter?
What about that camping refrigerator from my old RV that ran off 12V, propane, and 120V?
How about those cheap 12v coolers that just plug into my cigarette lighter?
Unfortunately, if you’ve asked any of those questions then you’re headed down a pretty disappointing path. Luckily, we’ll show you the specific things you need to look for to find a high quality 12 volt refrigerator that will last a long time and won’t kill your batteries! First, we’ll look at the most popular purpose-made 12 volt refrigerators. Then, we’ll show you what modes to avoid. Finally, if you stick around, we’ll show you a couple budget options for weekenders as well as a cool DIY project where you can build your OWN 12 volt refrigerator that performs just as well for a fraction of the price.
The Best (and worst) 12V Refrigerators on The Market
If you’re looking for fridge that will sip on DC power and keep cool in even tough conditions, you’re in the right place. We’ve written 7 seperate reviews and in this roundup we’re going to rank them from best to worst. You’ll find out which ones are the most energy efficient, requiring very low power to run. Additionally, we’ll check out some portable fridgerators that keep your food at safe temperatures for long periods of time. Without further ado, let’s get into the reviews.
The Dometic CFX 75DZW pretty consistently tops our list for it’s incredible performance, versatility, and reliablity. Don’t let us confuse you – this is NOT an economical option. Dometic has been a top brand for over 30 years and there is a good reason for it – they spare no expense. This is a no-compromise 12v refrigerator for overlanders and RVers who require reliability and performance above all else. Your power consumption will be low, and it will hold the temperature within a safe range consistently to prevent food spoilage. Aside from that, it’s extremely durable (if not a bit heavy) making it one of the best DC powered portable fridges available. If you can spring the cash for it, this is the model to buy.
If you’re looking for a slightly more affordable model that still has the performance, reliability, and name to back it up, Engel would be our second choice. They are a little more portable than some DC power 12V refrigerator models, and have many features that your bone standard portable fridge just doesn’t offer. We like them for their great temperature ratings and their ability to hold these temperatures consistently without huge power draw. They are a great choice for solar or RV applications, and run exclusively off 12 volt so you know that they are specially made for your  car refrigerator with compressor  needs.
