has anyone compared power usage of a waeco 175 fridge to a evakool 210, my evakool seems to use at least half of what the waeco in my new van uses.

Evakool publish their consumption figures. What do they say?

Evakool build more insulation into their premium lines. Compare the wall thicknesses.

Yes, I was interested in these 2 fridges, so went and had a Google, found figures etc for both of these and more.
All the figures are there in specs for both, I remember the Waeco was significantly higher.
I would have posted links up, but was (and still) on little phone, too awkward with multiple windows ect.

I was very surprised with the value of both items, and similar slightly larger units, particularly the Evacool.
Would be excellent in a custom build Iveco rear camper etc.

I have a Waeco, Coolmatic RPD 175 L in my caravan, it pulls around 6.5amps when running, not sure what it draws at startup.

According to the stats the evekool uses an average 33.3w over a 24 hr period, the Weaco uses an average of 65w over a 24 hr period.

Maybe not quite the same in real life situations, but is a fair bit of difference all the same.

Cheers

FWIW I've got an EvaKool 60 l, the white fibreglass job. When I measured its consumption the draw was over twice the published figure. EvaKool paid for its return and they checked the consumption. It was within their spec.

Their published figures are quite specific about test conditions: ambient temp, internal temp (both fridge and freezer sections) and economy or normal setting.

The only difference I could see was that they test each setting over 24 hours and I was taking measurements of different combinations of variables over far less than this.

I did check my gauge on a known draw and it was accurate.

the reason i asked was my old van with the evakool uses about 40amps per 24hrs and the waeco in my new van used almost 90amps seems like a big difference.the readings are from 2 different monitors but you would not think it would be that much.
