Burnsco .. ProductDetail - Burnsco

$NZD1000 less 15% VAT for furrin cruiser= $NZD868 which at today's rate is $US712.

Bit of no brainer for me... unless someone must have 110V..... but one from the US will effectively be no warranty... not the sort of thing you would post back to have fixed.

Re: Which Portable Refrigerator

thank you everyone - gave me plenty of food for thought. I"ll share this with my friend Jill and let her decide if price savings is worth lack of warrantee.

Re: Which Portable Refrigerator

definitely recommend either the engel or waeco true more expensive but quality is far superior. i had purchased a coleman 12volt thermoelectric unit initially and it was a power hog and didnt cool down nearly as well. took it back and bought the waeco and its one of my best boat purchases.
