Compressor Fridges

These are the most efficient type of fridge. They are quick to cool down, and most are able to work on either 12v battery power or 240 mains power. Compressor fridges are available in two layouts. Front door opening fridge units can be installed into the caravan/boat cabinetry, and are a permanent addition. Portable compressor fridges are top loading, and can be easily moved from inside the caravan to your car, or even to use in your home. Compressor fridges come in a variety of sizes. There are also options for Freezer only compressor fridges.

Absorption Fridges (3 Way Fridge)

These units are popular due to the fact that they can be powered in a variety of ways. They are the only type of fridge that can be powered using liquid petroleum gas (LPG). These fridges can also run off of 12v battery power, and 240v mains power. As these units do not have a compressor, the operation is very quiet. These fridges take a longer amount of time to cool down, but are very useful if you are travelling off the beaten track and are not likely to find a powered camp site. Absorption fridges are available in two layouts. Front door opening fridge units can be installed into the caravan cabinetry, and are a permanent addition to your caravan. Portable fridges are top loading, and can be easily moved from one vehicle to another.

However as with all gas appliances, if the unit is being powered by gas it should be sure to have proper ventilation. All front door opening units will have proper ventilation built behind the fridge, but a portable 3-way fridge should not be run on gas inside a confined space. This is extremely dangerous, and will eventually consume all of the oxygen within a closed space. Absorption fridges come in a variety of sizes.

Thermo-Electric (Peltier) Coolers

These units are only available as portable units. They use a peltier to cool or heat the air inside the cooler cabinet. These units will heat up to +65 degrees. These units will cool up to between 20 and 30degrees below ambient temperature. Therefore, they are not ideal in hot climates. These units cannot be used to freeze.
