Hi All

I recently picked up an older Engel called the 'Engel Light'
It's a 28L light blue plastic fridge that is only 9kg, runs on 12Volt only and has a switch (cool or cold) instead of a dial.

I had bought it because it was cheap and also the fact I am scared of my 39L Engel getting stolen from my car if I leave it in there all the time. The Engel Light looks like one of those cheap thermoelectric coolers (but still has the Engel compressor), so hopefully any prospective theif wouldn't bother... By the way, has anyone had their Engel stolen from their car?

What I wanted to know was if anyone one has had experience with the Engel Light and their cooling capabilties? How cold does the 'cool' setting get and how cold does the 'cold' setting get. I notice it runs the 134a refrigerant, so it must be post 1993 and also it draw 3.4 amps, whereas my 39L draws 3.5amps and it has 46grams of charge versuses the 60grams in the 39L.

Any comments appreciated thanks.

Why don't you just plug it in & put a thermometer in it?

Hi ozwasp, I have had mine for about 8 years. Has been and still is a great little fridge. The cool setting runs at about 4degs and the cold setting runs at about -10deg. These measurements were taken on a day at about 30-35degs. The only thing I have had to replace is the plug, changed to a hella type. One thing though it does not have a low voltage cutout, just keeps running till battery is dead flat. The instruction book states its input rating is 12V 3.4A. Model no. MD-030.
