Product Description

Dometic CFX3 55 Portable Fridge/Freezer 55 Litre, 5 year warranty. This ultimate portable fridge/freezer produces seriously impressive cooling, allowing you to bring more of the food and drinks you love wherever you go. Its robust design is built for tough outdoor use. Enjoy efficient cooling and freezing with convenience thanks to a mobile app which puts the control of your Dometic CFX3 at your fingertips. Go further, stay longer, and experience more.

With the Dometic CFX3, you have control of your outdoor experiences like never before. The CFX3 gives you the power to change your state of mind and put your well-being first. On-road, off-road, outback or in the backyard, your ordinary and extraordinary adventures will be fuelled by fresher, safer food, less waste and more confidence, giving you the power to be present in any moment. 

This is the brand new version of the Dometic Waeco CFX50W Portable Fridge - now upgraded to the CFX3 version, with all new market leading features and benefits. 

The CFX3 is the third generation of Dometic Waeco portable camping fridges. All CFX3’s have the same footprint as the old CFX’s but with added capacity. To optimise space the compressor has been moved to the back of the fridge. This also improves the weight distribution on a fridge slide as the majority of the fridges weight is at the back of the slide.

The entire CFX3 range feature easy to remove lids. The larger models (CFX355, CFX355IM, CFX375DZ & CFX395DZ) have a reversable lid while the smaller models (CFX335 & CFX345) open from the front.

What Are The Main Differences Between The Old CFX Models and The New CFX3 Range?

The CFX3 range introduces a new rugged design including an XOS frame for protection, aluminium handles and Al alloy hinges, making most of the range lighter than their counterparts. These models also have a new high-resolution colour display panel with soft touch controls and faster USB charging, are Bluetooth enabled and feature powerful VMSO3 compressor cooling technology, which optimises performance vs energy consumption.

CFX3 Standout Features:

Capacity 

The fridge stores an incredible amount of fresh food and drinks. The CFX3 eliminates the dairy compartment, which means more room for all your favorite foods. Choose how you organize the space with a removable wire divider and enjoy a more even distribution of cool air with the extended evaporator, now on all inner walls of the unit. This takes the load off the compressor to save power.

CFX3 App

Download the CFX3 app for free in the App Store or Google Play Store, and connect to your powered cooler via your smartphone. Control and monitor the temperature of the cooler remotely, whether it’s from the front seat of your vehicle or in bed after a long day of exploring. Thanks to our user-friendly interface, it’s easier than ever to track the cooling status of your CFX3. If you happen to leave the lid of your CFX3 open, the app will send you a notification telling you to close the lid. While powered, the app keeps detailed records of the temperature and power consumption history, so you know your limits on your next journey. 

Digital Display 

The CFX3 series features an easy to read high-resolution color display panel with characters which states the temperature and status of the cooler. Several protection systems are built into the display, including a scratch-resistant cover and IP65 rated housing to protect against dust and water splashes, so you can feel confident wherever you go. The upgraded USB port is now located in the display panel for a faster and more ergonomic way to charge your portable devices. The intuitive user-interface displays the voltage, Bluetooth/WiFi connection status and temperature in colorful graphics. The operating settings of your cooler can be adjusted at the press of a button with a simple menu.

Optimised VMSO3 Compressor

All CFX3’s feature a genuine Waeco VMS03 compressor. The VMS03 compressor has motor speed optimization that has the ability to change speed in order to adapt to the environment. This allows you to save power especially in hot climates.  The compressor also features a softer start up with a higher maximum power draw to increase the longevity of the fridge/freezer.

All Features: 

  • Adjustable temperature for powerful cooling
  • Saty connected via the CFX 3 app
  • Robust build for the outdoors
  • Flexible power options including AC, DC and Solar
  • Weatherproof high-resolution user interface displays operating status

  • Easy-to-read high-resolution colour display and soft touch buttons enabling seamless control and monitoring of fridge/freezer performance
  • CFX3 app allows temperature control via Bluetooth or WiFi and provides performance history
  • 3-stage battery protection system prevents dead car battery or allows deep draw on dual batteries
  • Gasket technology provides a superior seal to retain cool air and minimise power consumption

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Looking at a camping fridge. What are your thoughts on an Engel compared to a Waeco?
    A:

    Great question - Waeco and Engel are the premium brands for portable fridges. Waeco has the CFX3 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 CFX3 range have a couple of small extras worth noting, including; USB charging outlets, drop down handles 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!

  • Q:When turning on a warm fridge will the Waeco CFX3 range draw more power? If so, how much higher than the average power consumption?
    A:

    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.

  • Q:What are the battery protection levels on my Waeco fridge, and what should I set them to?
    A:

    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.

  • Q:How long will my camping fridge run for from my battery?
    A:

    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.

  • Q:Can I run my waeco fridge on its side/end?
    A:

    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.

  • Q:Can I leave my Waeco fridge plugged into 12Volts DC and 240Volts AC at the same time?
    A:

    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.

  • Q:What temperatures should I set for fridge and freezer operation?
    A:

    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 CFX3 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.

  • Q:What Solar Panel do I need to run my fridge?
    A:

    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. A popular solar panel size to charge your batteries to run camping fridges is around 120 - 160 watts. 

  • Q:What Are the Main Differences Between the Old CFX Models and The New CFX3 Range?
    A:

    The main differences are:

    The CFX3 range introduces a new rugged design including an XOS frame for protection, aluminium handles and Al alloy hinges, making most of the range lighter than their counterparts.

    These models also have a new high-resolution colour display panel with soft touch controls and faster USB charging, are Bluetooth enabled and feature powerful VMSO3 compressor cooling technology, which optimises performance vs energy consumption.

    The CFX355IM model also features an icemaker which is an industry first!

    Other differences include:

    • Track fridge performance on the new CFX3 App
    • LED light(s) for easy retrieval of items
    • Removed dairy compartment on CFX3 35, 45 & 55 to accommodate a fully wrapping evaporator plate to improve temperature consistency, cool the compartment faster and optimise internal space
    • Anti-condensation tube reduces condensation around gasket & top collar in high humidity conditions
    • AC/DC input connectors, with added weather protective rubber covers
    • M6 threaded inserts for hard mount applications
    • New more intuitive, easy to open latch (CFX335 and CFX345 only)
    • 12V plug fuse from 10A to 15A (CFX395DZ only)
    • The evaporator plate is installated around the entirety of the fridge for an even cooling distribution

    Check out our blog on the new CFX3 models here!

  • Q:Can I run my portable fridge freezer directly from a solar panel/blanket?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately no, a battery must always be used to provide a continuous power supply. You must plug the portable fridge/freezer into the battery and then plug the battery into the solar panel/blanket.

    The solar panel/blanket on its own is unable to provide stable and constatnt power to your portable fridge/freezer, which is required to mantain your pre-set temperature.

    Thanks for your question.

  • Q:Why do I have to ensure my portable fridge freezer is setup in a well ventilated location?
    A:

    Hi there,

    When a portable fridge/freezer is not properly ventilated, the unit can overheat and result in high power consumption leading to poor performance and efficiency.

    It's also recommended to regularly clean the air inlet and outlet vents so that it is free from dust to prevent blockages.

    Thanks for your question.

  • Q:Can I charge the Dometic PLB40 Lithium Battery and run a Dometic CFX3 fridge freezer at the same time?
    A:

    Hi there,

    Yes - the PLB40 lithium battery has been designed to be able to charge and power a CFX3 portable fridge freezer at the same time.

    Regards, Steve.

  • 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:Can I take off the lid on the CFX3 fridges?
    A:

    Yes, all CFX3’s have a removable lid. The larger models (CFX355, CFX355IM, CFX375DZ & CFX395DZ) also have reversable lids.

  • Q:What compressor is in the CFX3 fridges?
    A:

    The entire CFX3 range features a genuine Waeco VMS03 compressor. The VMS03 compressor has motor speed optimization that has the ability to change speed in order to adapt to the environment. This allows you to save power especially in hot climates.  The compressor also features a softer start up with a higher maximum power draw to increase the longevity of the fridge/freezer.

  • Q:How is the evaporator different in the CFX3’s compared to other portable fridge/freezers?
    A:

    The evaporator plate in the CFX3’s are installation around the entirety of the fridge for an even cooling distribution and temperature throughout the fridge/freezer.
