Since Andy_S seems not ta have one o' dem new-fangled thermo-lectrik koolers dat kin mysterioosly disappear fro' his'ems boat :>), ah' wuz lookin' at dem fer me truck instead o' an ice-cooled chest. Dun't need a big one - just 'nuff fer a couple sixpacks an' some grub. Any ye pilgrims rekoomend one or anutter? Kooltron, Coleman and Igloo makes dem.

12 year old one to reply, and we just used it this past weekend.
Ours is a Coleman and once again worked great.
We originally got it for our pop-up camper and used it a lot.
With that said, it will only keep things cool, (not cold) -By now maybe they have improved them to keep ice from thawing, but I don't know
It not only cools, but you reverse the plug and it will warm things.
Ours has both a cigar lighter plug in, and then an adaptor so it can be pluged into 120 volts also.

Hope this helps a bit, and sorry I am late responding

Beats some good ole ice for keepin them beers cold! I think dem thermoelectric thingys only drop the temp about 40f below the outside air temp.

Bring it when we go car camping at a site with electricity. Cools to 25 degrees below ambient air, which means things can get frost bitten if air is cool. Had it for less than 2 years, used about 12-15 camping trips. As someone said, it's not a refrigerator. Good for keeping frozen leftover meals cold for use while camping (beats freeze-dried food). Keeps salad greens fresh.
