Icebox to 12vdc Fridge

Any thoughts regarding converting my 9cu.ft. ice box to 12v fridge?
Which is the most cost effective , reliable and draws less amperage?

Re: icebox to 12v fridge

Welcome to CF

Fitted an Isotherm unit a couple of years ago although we were able to use the smaller size.

They are sold under a number of different labels or possibly Isotherm buy in the units and add their labels.

We did however add to the coolbox insulation at the same time.

Might be worth considering the water cooled option given your high air temperatures during the day.
