    Bought the fridge from My Generator. Arrived quickly and in factory condition. Out of the box it is impressive and has the extension collars and bag. Fridge gets cold quickly and freezes goods in the bottom. With the extensions the temparature decreases so vegetables dont freeze in top section. The extensions are convenient for longer trips away.

    Excellent sales team with great product knowledge and excellent customer service. When I was looking on the website a pop up advised off $25 purchase for new customer. I accepted this bought the Bushman fridge but then couldnt see anywhere to put the $25 savings. Rang the sales team and was credited the $25 next day. Fantastic.

    After researching portable fridge freezers for a while the bushman kept coming up for simple operation and if anything does go wrong they would have no dramas in sorting it out which I have had mates with Engels and waecos that just have dramas getting it sorted. I have had my bushman a couple of months and has worked flawlessly. Very happy and highly recommend

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Hi, I want to use my 90amp hour camping battery to run a portable fridge. How many hours will I get from my battery before needing to recharge? And what solar panels should I use to charge the battery?
    A:

    Hi Greg, great question. It is good that you will use the solar panel to charge the battery, as opposed to running the fridge directly from the solar panel, as voltage will drop if clouds come overhead for instance. You can run the fridge direct from your solar panels if you wish, but using the battery means your refrigerator keeps running even if the voltage output of the solar panel drops severely due to cloud cover.

    Presumably your 90amp hour battery is an AGM / GEL / Lead Acid type, meaning they have an approximate 'Depth of Discharge' of around 50% - so you can only use around half the capacity of the battery before you need to recharge. For Lithium batteries, you can get down to around 20% of capacity (sometimes more), however lithium batteries are more expensive. So, your battery model has around 45 hours capacity before you need to recharge. A portable camping fridge of say around 40-50 litres in size will draw approximately 0.75 amps/hr*. Meaning you will get approximately 60 hours of total run time from your battery before needing to re-charge, assuming you are running just your fridge and nothing else. Obviously different brands and models have different power draw ratings and a larger portable fridge will draw more power than a smaller model - best to check each fridge model's specifications for precise power draw data.

    Now looking at solar panels and the fact you may also want some other small camping appliances as well as the fridge:  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 appliances, and have battery storage of an extra 2/3 on hand. So, if your portable fridge plus some other small camping appliances consume a total of say 30 amp-hours per day, you should have battery storage of 90 amp-hours capacity (like your battery does) and a solar panel of at least 80-100 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. A popular solar panel size to charge your batteries to run camping fridges is around 100 to 160 watts… a quality 160 watt portable solar panel should give you around 60 amps per day of charging, assuming around 7 hours of decent sunlight.

    So based on the above, a 160 watt sized panel could be a good option for your sized battery - this should give you enough daily power to comfortably run a standard sized portable fridge and some other small appliances if required. Thanks.

    *Note that average power consumption data depends on things such as ambient temp, compressor speed (fridge setting), temp of contents in fridge, etc. So treat this numbers as approximation to give you a 'thereabouts' guide.

  • Q:If I used this in a campervan enclosure, how much space does it require around it? Thank you.
    A:

    Hi Clare, we would recommend a buffering around the perimeter of the fridge of at least 100mm when storing inside an enclosure. Many portable fridge manufacturer's will actually recommend up to around 200mm of buffering gap specifically around the fridge's vents for optimal performance.

    Many thanks. 

  • Q:Is this a dual zone camping fridge?
    A:

    Hi Steve, 

    No, its not technically a true dual zone fridge-freezer model whereby you can control the temperature of individual compartments separately. 

    However this model has separate components that when you set the thermostat for the unit to -5 degrees then you can operate it like this in the 52L set up:

    > top basket acts as a crisper (for veggies & fruit etc.) 

    > middle basket acts keeps meat and dairy nice and cool 

    > the lower basket will keep contents frozen (note that it keeps food frozen, doesn't freezes food)

    This is a popular set up for campers using this fridge. You can review the Bushman Brochure HERE for further technical details . 

  • Q:What type of compressor runs Bushman portable fridges?
    A:

    Bushman portable fridge / freezers feature a SECOP compressor (formally known as Danfoss compressors). This compressor is the most commonly known on the market and is found in Evakool, Camec and Bushman portable fridges.

    To find out more information on the SECOP Compressor and to compare other fridge compressors, check out our blog post here: https://bit.ly/2OIro2V
