Re: Coleman Stirling Power Coolers

The Coleman is the same unit as listed on the link you posted as the SC-C925, wow, $1699, i wish i had bought 2 when i bought mine off ebay, I told a couple of freinds about them and they bought them also, one of them uses it at his hut in Belize running off solar,hes an electrical engineer and claims it is consuming about 1 amp on fridge setting.

Re: Coleman Stirling Power Coolers

How big of a box are you cooling with the Coleman guts Gringo? How much insulation?

I'm not on my boat right now so I can't really tell you the volume. But there was only 2" of insulation around the box, so I've drilled holes and used a bunch of spray foam to add another 2" of insulation.

Re: Coleman Stirling Power Coolers

Sorry for reviving a LONG dead thread. I've enjoyed many years of use out of a Coleman Stirling Power Cooler, but now my second DC power cord has shorted out. This seems to be a common failure mode with the coolers, so I was wondering if anyone had found a suitable replacement cord. I've found several that seem to "fit" based on the physical plug, but I'm concerned about polarity. At least one cord I tried to use as a replacement (a Coleman cord for one of their thermoelectric units) had reversed polarity, which I know can damage the electronics. (I tested polarity before actually trying to use the cord).

Does anyone have recommendations for a replacement DC power cord for the Coleman Stirling Coolers?

Thanks!
Keith

Re: Coleman Stirling Power Coolers

No cord replacement advice, but if you do reverse polarity, it blows an on-board fuse, which you can bypass. I know, because I did this years ago!

Thanks. Trying to avoid blowing the fuse if possible.

Anybody know of a standard (Molex type?) connector that fits the two pins? If so, I would feel confident wiring up my own cord.

Re: Coleman Stirling Power Coolers

To answer my own question (and help out anyone else that might be looking) a replacement DC power cord that fits the Coleman Stirling Power Cooler is this replacement cord that fits the Koolatron P25 cooler: http://www.12voltsplus.com/059586720...r#.WXzlBVGQzDD
