Electric cooler recommendations

I am looking for replace a cooler that is under a seat with an electric cooler,,something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Dometic-CFX35...itle_auto?th=1

Dometic has good reviews, just wondering if anyone has used electric coolers, and if so, what brand, and what your opinions are.

Re: Electric cooler recommendations

Many here seem to really like the engel units
https://www.amazon.com/Engel-MR040F-...=engel+coolers
I think they are the same unit. I would go with the engel its bigger for the same price.

Re: Electric cooler recommendations

12V compressor fridge/freezer is the proper term.

Electric cooler implies peltier chip, very ineffective and inefficient technology.

There are many vendors, both here are good.

Engels have the top rep for build quality, longevity and energy efficiency. Bit noisier though.
