Product ReviewI was concerned about the size and weight of the CFX-95 fitting in the tray of a newly bought campier trailer, however its reasonably light for its size and fitted into the campier trailers tray like a dream. It comes with a double compartment so you fill one side with beer and the other with supplies, and of course keeping the wife happy. Am very pleased with the fridge and eager to try it out it more. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention that it's also Bluetooth/wi-fi enabled so you check/ change the temperature for each compartment from your phone.
Shopping ExperienceI was amazed to how quick I recieved my order from My Generator, especially coming from over east. The transaction was very easy and the product was very well packaged. I'd certainly use My Generator for my camping needs.Recommend this product to a friend? yes(Posted on 7/28/16)

Looking at a camping fridge. What are your thoughts on an Engel compared to a Waeco?
Great question - Waeco and Engel are the premium brands for portable fridges. Waeco has the CFX range and Engel has their Platinum series - these two ranges of fridges are generally considered the leading portable camping fridges in the market...its a bit of a classic Ford vs Holden debate situation. Both ranges have:
- Battery protection
- 12/24volt and /240volt operation capability
- Comprehensive warranties with national service support
- Premium grade compressors designed with the Australian environment in mind
- Digital control and display
- Impressively efficient power consumption
You really can't go wrong with either...however a couple of differences to help you make your decision:
- The Engel Platinum series of fridges have a steel cabinet, steel lid and steel handles...some people prefer the steel exterior (particularly farmers) as opposed to the rotomounted material used by Waeco. However, the steel material typically makes the fridge slightly heavier when comparing models on a like for like size basis.
- The Waeco CFX range have a couple of small extras worth noting, including; USB charging outlets, drop down handles, drainage plug and ability to remote monitor.
If you're still in two mind between the two brands, then perhaps look at the pricing and see which model is cheaper in the size you need. Thanks!
In the specifications, there is a reference to ‘nutserts’ – what are these?
The nutserts on the base of the fridge relates to the ability to fix the fridge to the Waeco Fridge Slide Out Kit or fix the fridge to a surface.
When turning on a warm fridge will the Waeco CFX range draw more power? If so, how much higher than the average power consumption?
Any compressor fridge will draw more power when first starting up, compared to when its running stable on the thermostat. The average power draw (from both 240V AC and 12/24V DC) is listed in the specifications for each model.
If you are concerned about conserving power when starting up, a good tip (if possible) is to put your fridge on 240V power for 24 hours before leaving on your trip. That way when you put your fridge in your vehicle to run on your battery source, the fridge is already cooled to your desired temperature for your food and drinks.
I am looking at purchasing the Waeco CFX95DZ2. I just downloaded the app to check it out, can you shed any light on what ABS stands for in the settings of the app?
Hi, ABS stands for ‘Active Battery Security’. This ensures the battery you are using to run the fridge is protected.
What is the smallest size solar panel I can use to run my CFX 95 litre fridge?
Hi, please take this advice as general, because there are many factors that can influnce the power consumption, such as ambient temperature and fridge/freezer temperature settings. Overall, it is advised that at a minimum of a 300 watt standard solar panel is used for the Waeco CFX-95DZ2, however to ensure you have more than enough power in all conditions, its often best to opt for slightly larger than this. Thanks
What are the main differences between the older Waeco CF portable fridge models and the Waeco CFX portable fridge range?
Hi - Firstly, all of the Waeco portable fridge-freezers are made with CFC-free Polyurethane foam for optimal cooling performance, can run on either 12/24 volt or 240 volt power sources, comprise electronic thermostats, come with three stage battery protection to ensure safe use, and have variable speed optimization for economic operation.
In terms of the differences between the two ranges, there are a few physical characteristics that the newer Waeco CFX range has over the older Waeco CF models:
- The Waeco CFX range has drain plugs, USB charging outlets, and sturdy drop down handles (as opposed to fixed handles)
In terms of performance characteristics:
- The Waeco CFX range has a low temperature capacity of -22°C (compared to the CF range which lowest temp is -18°C)
- The Waeco CFX units draw slightly less power (approx. 10% less) as they have around 20% more insulation than the CF range, meaning the compressor in the CFX units cycles less
Other points to note:
Overall, we would sell slightly more of the CFX models because even though they cost a bit more, they come with a longer warranty and perform slightly better. However, if you are on a tighter budget, then the CF range presents a compelling value for money case!
- The Waeco CFX range uses a Waeco Compressor which is specifically designed with Australian conditions in mind. The CF range uses the more universal Secop compressor
- The Waeco CFX range comes with a 5 year (3 + 2) warranty and the Waeco CF range comes with a 3 year warranty
- The Waeco CF range are cheaper and come with a protective insulated cover as standard, making them a very good value proposition.
What temperatures should I set for fridge and freezer operation?
Typically your home refrigerator would be running at between 2 and 4 °Celsius which is optimum for good food preservation. With camping refrigerators, some campers choose a temperature a little higher than that to conserve battery power. With Dometic WAECO CFX portable refrigerators you are able to select a temperature to suit your needs in 1°C increments. For freezing, your home deep freezer would operate somewhere between minus 18 and minus 20 °Celsius. For camping applications however, minus 15 ° Celsius would be more than adequate and also conserve battery power.
What Solar Panel do I need to run my fridge?
The panel should be of a suitable size to meet requirements of the refrigerator and any other appliance running from the battery. Its best to use the solar panel to charge a battery, as opposed to running the fridge directly from the solar panel as voltage will drop if clouds come overhead for instance. The battery means your refrigerator keeps running even if the voltage output of the solar panel drops severely due to cloud cover. A good rule of thumb to prevent inadequacies with power supply is to have a solar panel large enough to provide enough daily power to run your refrigerator, and have battery storage of an extra 2/3 on hand. So, if your refrigerator (or any other appliance) will consume 30 amp-hours per day, you should have battery storage of 90 amp-hours capacity and a solar panel of around 80 watts or greater capacity to ensure you won't have problems. It is advised to go a little higher in specification than your needs, however.
What are the battery protection levels on my Waeco fridge, and what should I set them to?
There are three set-able battery protection levels; "Hi" equates to 11.8 volts (High cut-out), "Ned" equates to 11.2 volts (Medium cut-out), "Lo" equates to 10.1 volts (Low cut-out). These are the voltages sensed at the refrigerator under load at which the compressor will shut down to protect your vehicle battery. If you have a small battery in a smaller vehicle, you should select high so that you are able to restart your vehicle easily. If you have a larger vehicle and larger battery capacity you should select the medium setting. If you have a dual battery set up and the secondary battery is able to be isolated from the starter battery you should select the Low setting.
How long will my camping fridge run for from my battery?
How long will my refrigerator keep running for on my battery? You need to ascertain how much power your refrigerator will consume on average per hour under certain ambient conditions; we provide this information under the Specifications section of the product. You also need to know the size of your battery in amp-hours. Once you know these figures, you can divide the size of the battery by that average consumption figure (multiplied by 24 hours) to give you approximate run time. e.g. If the stated consumption is 1 amp per hour average, multiply that by 24 hours. (equals 24 Amp hours per day). You should understand that you never get the full amount of amp-hours from a battery however. You should use 80% as a good rule of thumb. So if you have a 100 Amp hour deep cycle battery, you can assume 80 amp-hours of usable power. So if a refrigerator consumes on average 1 amp per hour, and is the only appliance running from a 100 amp-hour battery, you should be able to have the refrigerator run for around 80 hours before recharging becomes necessary.
Can I run my waeco fridge on its side/end?
It is not recommended to run refrigerators on their side or end. 30 degrees angle is the steepest recommended angle to leave the refrigerator running at.
Can I leave my Waeco fridge plugged into 12Volts DC and 240Volts AC at the same time?
Yes you can. If both power sources are available to your WAECO CFX fridge, it will automatically select 240 volts AC as the priority so that you are not consuming battery power.
