This fridge/freezer is seriously all about adventure, whether you’re camping with your family, 4X4 driving in the desert or having a weekend BBQ with your mates.
The Evakool Down Under portable fridges are assembled, commissioned and tested in Australia!
Down Under range operates with ease in temperatures up to 47°C which makes it one of the best performing 12V fridges on the market for hotter environments.
Made in Australia, manufactured locally on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, the Down Under Series is #IconicallyAustralian. Featuring a world renowned Secop compressor and highly efficient roll bond evaporator system, the Down Under Series is the ultimate portable fridge/freezer for your next adventure.
Evakool's goal for the Down Under Series was to create a highly efficient 12V refrigeration system, and that begun with a Secop compressor. Previously known as Danfoss, the Secop compressors are a German designed and engineered product and is the best compressor on the market. Not only does the Secop increase efficiency, its quality will see it through its days - that's why they back it with a 5 year warranty!
Evakool utilises a rollbond evaporator system rather than a copper pipe evaporator system for a multitude of reasons. The rollbond system allows for better heat transfer by having direct contact to the heat source, as well as better heat absorption due to a larger surface area. This system has proven to have higher efficiency rates due to its quality, which also helps to ensure a longer lifespan for the fridge freezer.
AIR COOLED CONDENSER
Evakool has utilised an air cooled condenser system due to a 30% increased efficiency in comparison to a static condenser system. The air cooled condenser is produced from high quality copper and aluminum that has proven to be more beneficial in the extraction and removal of heat during the condensing process. This system in conjunction with the Secop compressor and rollbond evaporator increases the overall functionality of the refrigeration system and ultimately lowers power consumption.

EPIC FRIDGE!!! Review by JasonThis fridge is unreal. Aussie made and ticks all the boxes. Absolutely stoked, super low power draw and huge capacity. Go support EvaKool - they're legendary. And MyGen's service is great too.(Posted on 2 March 2023)
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?
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.
If I used this in a campervan enclosure, how much space does it require around it? Thank you.
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.
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. A popular solar panel size to charge your batteries to run camping fridges is around 120 - 160 watts.
What differs the Evakool Down Under range from the other Evakool Portable fridges?
To start, Evakool have made the decision to assemble, commission and test the Down Under range in Australia.
how big are the 2 compartment in liter wise
The compartments on the DU95-DZ are 40L and 55L.
Can I run my portable fridge freezer directly from a solar panel/blanket?
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.
Why do I have to ensure my portable fridge freezer is setup in a well ventilated location?
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.
