Coolers that require no ice

During the annual Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah Dometic will be showing off their line of electric powered coolers. Instead of ice to keep things cool all you will need is a 12 volt power outlet, like a cigarette lighter in your car, or a wall to plug in to.

Adapting the heritage of the company’s RV/ marine refrigerators and freezers these electric coolers are perfect for tent campers, van campers, or anyone looking to keep things cool without worrying about buying ice every day. What do you think of these new coolers? Read more from the company press release below.

Dometic will exhibit the newly available CFX-28US and CFX-95DZUS, as well as the CC-40US and a range of other mobile cooling products and accessories.

“The CFX looks like a standard cooler, but is actually a powerful refrigerator/freezer that runs on 12 volt or 24 volt DC power from a car, truck or RV. Or, plug it into a 120 volt AC power source,” said Derek Laninga, Dometic’s director of sales for retail products. “At this show, we are pleased to announce that our newest models – the CFX-28US and CFX-95DZUS – are now available to retailers and distributors.”

The CFX is true mobile cooling for food and drinks – with no messy ice required, a release from the company stated. It keeps food and drinks colder than a fridge at home, even in scorching hot weather, the release continued, adding the units can even keep ice cream frozen.
The two newly available models on display are:

  • CFX-28US – The CFX-28 is a single-zone unit that can be used either as a portable refrigerator or as a freezer – depending on where you set the thermostat – with 27 quarts of storage capacity.
  • CFX-95DZUS (pictured) – This top-of-the-line model is a dual-zone unit that has 86 quarts of space in two different compartments, which function independently. The CFX-95DZ can even be controlled from an app.

The CFX comes in a wide range of sizes that offer between 27 and 86 quarts of storage space. The CFX-28, CFX-35, CFX-40 and CFX-50 can operate either as a refrigerator or freezer, depending on where you set the thermostat. The larger, “dual-zone” units, the CFX-65DZ and CFX-95DZ, each have separate compartments for storing fresh refrigerated food and frozen food simultaneously.

All CFX models come with a soft-touch digital thermostat. A quick-chill turbo function runs compressors at maximum performance until desired temperatures are reached, from -8 degrees farenheit up to 50 degree farenheit. CFX units can run on 120 volt AC, 12 volt DC or 24 volt DC power.

Once the temperature is reached, the CFX draws minimal power to maintain the temperature. The thermostat memory retains preset temperatures even after being turned off.  The Dometic CFX units also have Battery Circuitry Protection built in, so you can’t discharge your car, RV, boat, ATV or other battery-power source.

Dometic electric coolers (fridge/freezers) are leaders in performance, features and value. Dometic mobile cooling technology was originally designed for the Australian outback, where advanced cooling and rugged construction are top priorities.

Each CFX unit has heavy-duty stainless-steel hinges and strong latches, drop-down spring-loaded handles, removable baskets, detachable and reversible lids on some units, a USB port for charging small electronic devices and a separate dairy compartment. Both AC and DC power cords are also included.

An optional freestanding or wall-mounted CFX Wireless Display allows owners to monitor and control their CFX unit from up to 49 feet away – providing peace of mind if the owner wants to spend time away from the CFX unit or leave it outdoors.

Easy-touch buttons allow users to set cooling temperature. The display is equipped with an alarm that can sound an alert when the CFX’s internal temperature increases above the desired level. The Wireless Display works on all models except for the NEW CFX-95DZUS, which can be remotely monitored and controlled by a new mobile app (available for Android and iOS).

Dometic will also display custom-fit durable padded covers for the CFX. The insulated covers help improve efficiency and are designed with openings to allow owners to easily reach controls to adjust temperature, turn the unit on/off or access the refrigerated compartments.
