    The all new CSI® Black Ice Fridge/Freezer runs off of your vehicle’s 12V accessory outlet for cooling or freezing on the go. Digital LED controls let you dial in the temperature you want, whether you’re looking to keep your supplies fresh for your overland trip or the popsicles for kiddo’s soccer team frozen and refreshing. Low power consumption and built in battery protection ensures your vehicle’s battery will always have the reserves needed to get you on the road again. 55mm polyurethane insulation provides extra protection to help maintain the desired temperature to keep your supplies cold. An AC adapter is included to pre-cool before your big trip or just have the convenience of cold beverages in your shop. Find what you’re looking for even in the dark with a built in interior LED light.

    • 12V DC or 120V AC operation
    • Operating range -4°F to 50°F
    • Compressor powered cooling
    • 12V Adjustable battery protection
    • Built in automatic interior LED light
    • Electronic LED controls
    • Basket for easy loading and unloading included
    • Latching closure
    • Holds 84 12oz cans
    • Solid bolted on handles for carrying or securing
    • Dimensions: 27.2" D x 20.6" H x 13.6" W

    This is a great fridge at a price that you can afford. We have been jokingly calling it the Yeti Killer around the shop.
    Here is a funny video we did for the fridge

    How would you rate the volume of the fridge with the compressor running? What is the current draw from the 12v outlet?

    What experience do you guys have in this market segment?

    I'm potentially interested, that's a great price, just doing homework

    Current draw is intermittent between .7-2.5 amp hours. On eco mode in bag out of direct sunlight 90 deg day we saw 1.25 amp hour draw across a 8 hr period.
    We are not the manufacturer we build Toyota's all day. We wanted to have a certain amount of camping gear for our new website and hooked up as a distributor for these. That being said ARB discontinued the use of this design and that opened the door for the factory to market it on its own and here we are.

    Appears to be another variant of the indelB / Truckfridge models. Good value for a danfoss compressor. Current draw/noise/reliability is going to be about the safe as their other models as they all run off the same compressor.

    I've had a 31qt model for several years now and it's worked well. Wouldn't install it in an open truck bed.

    Warranty is one year. We have ours in the truck bed and will let you know when it brakes

    I had an issue with the voltage cut-off switch that required taking it slightly apart. Wire connections within the vented area where the compressor lives are not weatherproof on mine. Additionally, wouldn't want all the dust and grime that comes with driving off road getting in there.

    Do you think the 52 quart is small enough to fit in the backseat of a doublecab? I have a topper on the way, but it's still several months out, but I have an empty backseat all the time

    They have held up great. I would blow it out every once and a while. I have yet to subject one to anything other than rain. I have yet to submerge one.....maybe I should for the next video
