Product Overview

The Koolatron P-85 Krusader Cooler uses a 12 Volt thermoelectric module powered by cigarette lighter in your vehicle to cool your favorite drinks and snacks to 45 to 50 Fahrenheit degrees below the ambient temperature. The P-85 Krusader Cooler is the largest 12 Volt cooler available. It fits 80 (12 oz.) cans and is great for large families or serious tailgating. Koolatron 12 Volt Coolers and Warmers will heat or cool your lunch and beverages. You can use Koolatron 12 Volt Coolers in your car, RV, boat, truck, dorm or just at home as spare fridge. So while you relax and enjoy quiet, dependable 12 Volt cooling, other campers and drivers are stuck in the "Ice Age", standing in line to buy overpriced ice or driving from store to store looking for an ice. By reversing the power cord you can also turn the Koolatron P-85 Krusader into a warmer to keep "fast food" or "take out food" hot on the way home. Take a full load of hot chocolate or coffee to the gang in winter or a hot casserole and other hot foods to family gatherings. The P-85 Krusader is so versatile you'll never want to leave home without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, quiet, roomey, light, and cold. The P-85 is great in our travels across Texas, New Mexico, Arazona, and Southern USA. It keeps drinks and food very cool. At night we bring it into the motel room and run it on the AC power supply.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised Basically, as advertised. Versatile, pre-cool in house with AC adaptor then transfer to car for transporting to destination. Would be better if you could select temperature to cool to. It goes about 40 degrees under outside temperature. We have our house at 70 so first night it cooled cooler to 30 degrees and cans of soda started to freeze. Also used at a cottage outside where temp was 95 therefore only cooled soda to 55. So using in 75-90 degree external temp is a little limiting. But does work as advertised. AC adaptor is a must in my opinion and is sort of pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacious and quiet! I bought this Koolatron for my father after his older model died. He is very pleased with this newer larger model. He likes that there is just a single lid instead of the former split lid; says accessing items is much easier now. He is especially impressed by how quiet it runs compared to his older Koolatron; also, how spacious it is and that it keeps everything sufficiently cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooler We traveled from NC to NV and back and this cooler kept everything refrigerator cold the whole trip. We used it in our hotel room with an optional power converter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good chiller for the car Great for shopping. Holds 6 frozen pizzas, and on the way homekeeps them from thawing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cooling (or heating) power and convenient capacity! Replaced our aging worn-out Rubbermaid with the Koolatron P85. Dimensions conveniently hold 2L Coke bottles upright, plus all the food we wanted to bring to the beach. Placed frozen meals in bottom, refrigerated foods on top. Frozen meals still frozen after 14 hour drive. Be sure to plug in with arrow pointing to blue dot for cold. Pointed to red by mistake, and quickly proved how HOT interior could get. (not a feature we use, but clearly very powerful for those who need this).
