25L Brass Monkey Portable Fridge : Budget Friendly and Works Great with Minor Imperfection

Keep your food and drinks cold for day trips and light-packed weekenders with the 25L Brass Monkey Fridge. Despite being relatively small, this compact portable fridge features just enough space appropriate for day trips and light-packed weekenders. The Brass Monkey Fridge is suitable for 12V systems, and it has a three-stage low battery cutout to prevent damage to your battery from overcharging. Additionally, the Brass Monkey Fridge has two compartments (i.e. being freezer and fridge) and its features include digital temperature controls, USB port, touch controls, and low energy consumption. 

Although the unit is relatively small and light (at approximately 12.1Kg), the Brass Monkey Fridge still has outstanding cooling power. Moreover, due to the high-density foam insulation, the Brass Monkey Fridge freezer can chill your food down to -20C. Notwithstanding, it appears that the insulation may not be thick enough as, under extreme heat, there would be condensation on the surface of the fridge.
