    Can this frezzer fit in back of a sububan and will it work and freeze plugged into the outlet in the back?

    Asked by Sam February 11, 2021
    1
    Answer

    Hello Sam, <br><br> Please note, the dimensions to this unit are 27″ W x 14.5″ L x 20″ H. Please also note, when positioning the portable freezer, ensure that there is at least a 6” clearance at the sides of the portable freezer. This will allow for adequate ventilation of heat from the back of the freezer. It is also recommended to place the unit on a flat, level, and solid surface. If all these requirements are meant you should be able to safely store this unit. This unit uses both AC/DC power cord powering, which allows you to use car charging ports. <br><br> If you have additional questions, our Customer Support Team is available Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM PST at 1-866-WHYNTER (1-866-949-6837) and at support@whynter.com.

    Re 12 volt option. Need specs for watts or amps. Also an average consumption watts per hour or day. For off grid use.

    Awful. This is the second one. The first one was super noisy, and by the way an old version that looked as used or returned by somebody else. This version is one that you can remove the whole top. Another bad design, as when you open it easily comes off for nothing. Till this weekend we did not have the time to try it while camping. We bought it to use it with 12v; and the fact is that never went down to freezing, always over 44 F. We had to eat all the meat we had there as soon as possible because otherwise it could have been spoiled, and shortened our camping trip due to that. No more replacement. We need to return it and will go with a known to be good brand. Sad that on today's day all junk coming from everywhere never gives you trust as a brand for a lifetime.

    Cool Cold and Frosty
    I've been using this in my camper van for about a year now, bought it and never looked back, it's a really great product. I had a problem with the 12 copy cord, they sent me a new one, no questions asked, now how is that for awesome service! The only thing I wish I had was one of those insulating bags, I can't seem to find them or see if they even make them, but that's an aside, I love my Whynter!

    Absolutely a life saver
    I'm an otr truck driver and i have a fridge in my truck built in. But i wanted a freezer for popsicles, tv dinners, burritos, and man it keeps them fresh and frozen on -8 degrees. Absolutely no problems and i RECOMMEND getting the extended warranty for a hundred dollars more for 5yrs. It's so quiet too. I literally have to be quiet and listen to hear the compressor running. I'm so impressed with it. The shipping from home depot was fast and the unit was in it's original box and double packaged. Thanks again home depot.
