Oze fridge

Hi, I have been a looker for years so about time to join in. For decades now I have been professionally involved in DC power-streams, storage and generation, and followed many interesting threads at the forum regards power use. A few years ago I followed a forum thread discussing the difference of fridge power consumption. In 2018 I visited the company down in Victoria who did the original test article and was very impressed with how accurate the findings were. I ordered a system for my boat from them and replaced my old battery killer unit. Since then I have also purchased one of their 80 litre eutectic front opening fridge freezers and it is also impressive. Their man Louie tells me they are not able to post at the forum nowadays which is unfortunate. Ian

Hi, Louie's old man , Peter got into a stoush with the one and only Richard Coleman, CF's resident refrigeration guru and was I believe duly banned , Peter has assisted me and many others to overcome refrigeration problems , from the perspective of a long time manufacturer that develops and routinely expands the boundaries of the available refrigeration technology, I would definitely recommend them in any capacity.
FWIW i have not purchased any product from them, however I have seen several of their offerings fitted to boats and so I would not hesitate to purchase from them should the need arise. Having spoken to Pete on several occasions my observation is that he is a gentleman, a rare commodity in this day and agee.

I meant to ask, how has the front opening unit performed, I really liked the concept and wished I could incorporate it in my situation however space constraints meant it was not to be.

Re: Oze fridge

regards the front open fridge freeze. I saw the beginnings of the Oze80 a few years ago when I visited the Ozefridge works to check out their 12 volt eutectic system power saving claims. I ended up purchasing their number three pack then and it was brilliant. I must admit I was hesitant but installing and using that system soon verified the makers claim.
Health issues have me grounded these days so the boat had to go and we needed a good fridge for our use. So far it has been every bit as impressive as the marine system and needing just one run each day we donít need any extra battery power.
To prove this I set up a 100AH Lithium charged it at 14.6V and it ran the fridge for 6 days then to prove both the fridge and the Lithium I recharged the battery to 14V and still got 6 days out of the fridge so the run took 2.5Hours at 6 amp so I am greatly impressed.
They have a good write up about the portable and other stuff at their web site www.ozefridge.com Ian.
