A true solar friendly 9 cu. ft. fridge that uses about 200 kWh/year.
Expensive ($1000) compared to other small economy units but very miserly in energy usage. Runs on 12/24 DC volts.
2.7" of insulation for the freezer with no defrost built in. That is the secret.
Reviews are generally good as fridge reviews go. I do wonder if the failures were related to issues with insufficient panels and batteries. Not one reviewer demonstrated significant knowledge about that subject. One noted that it worked off just two regular marine deep cycle batteries - which is really very little.
