Why a 12V only fridge?

Your fridge will last longer
All low power compressors, like this one from Danfoss, run on 12V power. If you buy a fridge with 240V built in, there’s a 240V transformer attached to your compressor. This transformer generates excess heat, which will reduce the life of your compressor.

It’ll cool down faster and use less power
By removing the 240V transformer from your compressor, your cooling system will produce less heat. This makes it easier and faster for your fridge to cool down. And, by removing the transformer, your electricity system will operate more efficiently.

And cost you less
A 12V only fridge has a simpler electronics system, which means better reliability as there a less complex electronics that could fail. On top of this, a 12V only fridge is cheaper to install and service as you don’t need a qualified electrician every time.
