      Comments about Engel 40qt. Portable Refrigerator/Freezer:

      I bought this because of its smart power draw. It recognizes 110 volt and uses that when it can and automatically switches to 12 volt when needed. I have dumped this cooler on its head in rough seas a couple times and it keeps on ticking. I use it to hold extra bait just in case something surprises me and I am always ready. I have had mine for about 2 years and I am about to purchase 2 more for other boats in our fleet.

          Works great on boat since it has both AD/DC capability.
          Great for extended boat trips especially to the Bahamas.
          Use it mostly to keep food frozen. But it will make ice overnight,

            Best Uses

            • In a noisy environment where you can't hear it

            Comments about Engel 40qt. Portable Refrigerator/Freezer:

            Purchase this for my sailing vessel. It is very noisy. It draws WAY more current (Amps) than the manufacturer says. It turns on/off very frequently. It does not have a 220 VAC capability. It is very expensive. If it wasn't for the environmental impact it would be at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. Worst refrigeration product I have ever purchased.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Great delivery via UPS.

              Comments about Engel 40qt. Portable Refrigerator/Freezer:

              I use this on my yacht and it has been one of the best investments onboard. Works well in hot tropical conditions. Also a perfect size to provides extra seating in the cabin. Unfortunately a somewhat cheap & nasty look. Better with extra textile cover-all.
