Saerch the archives for "evakool" and you will get about 3 pages of data on them.

I don't know about Evakool, but as a "fridgie" I have looked at a few different fridges and have determined that the Trailblazer is my idea of a robust and reliable fridge! You can check them out at Norcoast Refrigeration website.

Yes- Have one and love it. Waeco are good but Evakool are better. Mates and I do trips together and the Evakool comes out tops.
(There's lots in the archives)

We have a 50 litre Evacool & had no problems. Has had plenty of rough work including Gibb River, Mitchell Falls. and all points in between. We loke it because it is flatter than the taller skinny models so it isn't too high to peer into when we pull out the fridge slide. Good on power efficiency and you have to keep it turned well down or the lettuce is a little more than just crisp. Wont rust, easy to clean. Disadvantages are the need to buy the 240V optional connector ($100 plus) if you want to keep the drinks cold at Christmas, and controls are on the end where they can get knocked higher or lower(a bit of tape fixes this).
We would recommend one if other factors suit.

Save the $100 and use a power supply from an old computer - most are 8 amp and put out a very very clean and constant 13.8v. Plently of old 486 computers appearing on the verge on clean up days...

We use Evakool chest type fridges in our tour buses because they dont fail like other brands.

I bought the poverty pack ED40 FF last year at Perth 4WD show for $680 with the power thingy. In a nut shell, great value, very,very efficent fridge. Was gonna go the WAECO 52 but made a spur of the moment purchase with no regrets. I like the idea of the small freezer bit/ large fridge bit. Space where you want it.
I can rave more off line if you wish.
