A fridge is one of the least-portable devices in existence. If you don't believe us, try moving one up a flight of stairs, then let us know how it goes. But when you have a solar cooler that is powered by solar panels, you now have a portable, zero-carbon way to chill your food.
In this post, we will give an overview of portable fridges, then tell you why we think the best of the lot is the GoSun Chill.
The Chill has numerous advantages over a regular cooler when it comes to camping.
First, there is no need for ice. Tired of having food turned into a soggy mush if it isn't protected by three layers of Ziploc bags? Tired of having to drive into town every 24 hours to replenish your supply of ice? A solar fridge for camping is the way to get out of the ice age. Plus you can now utilize 100 percent of the space within a cooler when ice isn't part of the equation.
Second, this portable fridge can ironically help you to stay more grid-connected by being able to recharge your electronic devices. In the case of the GoSun Chill, it is powered by a portable lithium battery pack. The large 150 watt-hours solar power pack can also power laptops, cell phones, and many other portable accessories, making it the perfect outdoor product to be prepared for a power outage or emergency. The detachable power bank packs enough juice to charge your phone 20 times over.
Here's how it all comes together with a solar panel. In the video below, GoSun customer Peter Salib unboxes this innovative cooler than uses solar energy to keep your food and drinks cool and explains how it works.
