They look very similiar to the one I bought recently from Repco.
And if so for the money they work ok.

Picked one up 2 weeks ago for $375, to me looks better made than the one I looked at Repco. This is my first portable fridge and from the info posted on this forum I was concerned about the fridge's performance on 12volt. So before upgrading any wiring I had a mate(sparky) ckeck if the 12 volt cable that came with the fridge had a voltage drop, neither the cable or when the fridge was running in the car on 12volt was there a voltage drop. This seemed contrary to everything that I've read about 3 ways. I went camping last weekend just one night, had the fridge on 240 for 2 days before, packed with cold beer & food, hit the road running on 12 volt arrived at the camp ground 3 hours later, all still cold, than ran on gas. It was quite a hot day 35c and the fridge kept the beer cold, even allowing for the fact that I kept openning it to get another beer! According to the manual it draws 90watts on 240, 75 watts on 12 volt or 6.25amps/hour and 1kg of gas lasts 3.5 days. All up seem pretty good to me.

Sounds like a bit of a toss up with these at $395 whether to go solar for power at 12v or take gas. Price wise gas prob wins and they certainly have some advantages over pure 12v for extended periods.Would need at least 2 big solar for them & of course old sol himself.
