Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginny It worked great
We took a trip to Alaska & we were so glad to have it & not to worry about ice for cooling. We did plug it in our room most nights using the converter. If we were able to freeze a couple bottles of water & put in it, it really kept things cold. We carried milk in it & it stayed cold. As we were traveling in cooler climates we don't know how it would work in warmer ones. We did keep a blanket over it for insulation & made sure the fan was not covered up.

Cooler works great for cooling; have not yet had a need to try warming items. Looking forward to this as we travel a great deal.
However, we are MOST disappointed with the latch in that on the very first occasion that we used the cooler, it crumbled -- pieces broke off. Therefore, we installed a crome window sash latch ($4) which does the job quite well. The manufacturer needs to address this problem.
In addition, the fan is noisy when in an upright position, but when placed on its side (so that the door swings open) there is no irritating noise. When traveling we have to keep it on its side. I you push on the plastic housing, the noise ceases.

Works as advertised. I was worried it might be too small but it isn't for trips my wife and I take. I didn't buy the optional home electric connecter because I wanted to wait to see how I liked the car operation—since I do like it I will now buy home plug.

Took the cooler on our camping vacation where it worked fine for five days then gave out. Each day the cooling fan would make more noise until it finally stopped. Home Depot refunded my purchase but we have not yet decided whether to get another one of these or one from a different vendor. Unit was used in our vehicle or kept in the shade at RV parks where outside temps ranged from 50-80 degrees.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guzzle Does what we bought it for.
Shortly after receiving this unit, our refrig. went down. This happened on a Friday evening, so everyone knows it's going to be a few days to get any service, right? This unit, intended for traveling, was just what we needed. I have a 12vdc converter and the Cooler saved the days. Did a great job keeping our everyday stuff just like the Frig did, nice and cool, no noise either. We're looking to using this unit for our upcoming travels this fall. If you're wondering if it really works, worry not, just go ahead and buy it, you'll be glad you did.

We drove from SoCal to Frisco with stops in between and this kept our food and drinks cool the entire time. 5 days total. Normally we have to make sure our hotel rooms have a fridge to keep our food allergic son's special food and vitamins cool. With this and the adapter that wasn't a concern. Now we can book cheaper rooms and consider the cooler paid for.
We ordered the adapter from Amazon. Just make sure you use it correctly or it could be set on warm instead of cool. There's not really a switch, instead cool/warm depend on the way you have the coolers built in cord connected to the adapters cord, pay special attn to the arrow.
Only features I'd like to see would be a built in thermometer and a real cool/warm switch.
Very nice product, wish we bought it sooner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingT This product is exactly what I expected.
After receiving the cooler, my wife and I drove 2000 miles with motel stays. We used the optional AC adapter to pre cool the cooler and to keep it cool at the motels. The cooler worked very well. I have not tryed it's warming feature yet. So far there are no issues and I am looking forward to the next time I will use it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ghoeffken Cooler is cool on my needs
Cooler will not handle a 2 liter soda bottle. It pictures a Canada Dry bottle but will not handle a 2 liter diet coke, dr. pepper, root beer or sprite. If you want it for cans and incidentals it may work but to have a picture of holding a 2 liter upright is misleading.
