Arrived super fast and worked perfectly. Each side is smallish. Make sure you measure. It does freeze good and nice and cold. Be careful not to drain your battery! Takes a lot of juice to keep it running however, it is just as described and works well if you consider these things.
I chose this model because both compartments are individually adjustable for temperature so that both sides can be either a refrigerator or freezer. We took our first camping trip with it this week. It was nice that we were able to keep our foods cool without having to worry about melting ice or spoiled food.
Before buying this, I had read reviews for other brands of refrigerators. Some brands had complaints of the power plug connector to the refrigerator getting too hot, so I paid special attention to this when I first hooked up the refrigerator. I can report that the Aobosi plug designs are very heavy duty and I had no overheating at all.
The only downside is that the temperature display is not accurate. I had to set the temperature to 32 degrees to keep the temperature under 40 degrees. This is not a big issue as long as you check your temperature readings with a thermometer before you start using the refrigerator.
One thing buyers should be careful about for the control app for smartphones is that the Android version is not in the Play Store. The Use App section on page 9 of the User Manual has two QR codes labeled IOS App download code and Android App download code with an image of the app icon to the right.
The text says:
Android System: Scan icon QR code
iOS system: Search for "Car Refrigerator" in the App store
We kind of have an expectation that QR codes will go to the respective app stores. Well, if you read too quickly, you might think you can search for "Car Refrigerator" in either the Apple or Google app stores, but the Android app is not in the Google store. You have to scan the QR code to get the app from Aobosi's download page.
There actually is a Car Refrigerator app in the Play Store, and the app icon looks similar, but it is a generic app made to work with various refrigerators, and it does not work with the Aobosi refrigerator.
I tried 12 different phones and tablets trying to connect both with the wrong app and with Android system under Bluetooth device pairing. Fortunately my wife's phone was kind enough to inform us that the refrigerator requires an app to connect to it. Aobosi customer support also worked hard with me on the problem before we realized I had simply downloaded the wrong app. After installing Aobosi's app, the refrigerator connected immediately and everything worked correctly. The erroneous app has been renamed Cfridge which might help, but it is still the first search result if you are searching for Car Refrigerator in Play Store.
So other than having to be careful about this, everything is great. I just want to give a special thanks to Aobosi customer support. They really went the extra mile to help me figure this out and did everything they could to help. They are very good people.
This cooler does plenty for keeping our food and drinks cold on long trips. It's nice to have quite a bit of cold storage in areas you wouldn't expect to have it. Between the beach, the parks, or even during yard work, we have a great tool to keeping so many things fresh during long periods of time!
