    You can set the battery protection in it to three levels, set it to low if on the 2nd batt - might have avoided the shut off, but I get your point regarding the temp increase while off

    Yeah I was really surprised by the big jump in temp, I reckon it was off. For maybe 6 hours through the middle of the night. My mates Engel 40 which I was also powering just kept on trucking without shutting off, so I figured it was the battery protection settings..

    Fuck it.

    Went to BCF rutho for a bit of a browse this arvo, specifically went to look at the oztent RV's and was impressed... but anyway.. I stumbled across one lonely box which happened to have a waeco cf50 pack inside. BCF advertised these a while ago as a runout at $699, but went out of stock everywhere. So as soon as I saw this I dragged it to the register and swiped that card

    We took a 50L away last weekend for 3 days and although it was loaded to the hilt, it worked perfectly. So this should do us well

    The WiFi is to allow remote monitoring/adjustment of the fridge, it is handy to have.

    I set my fridge with a dial and don't think about it again. Never fluctuates more than a few degrees either direction. I don't need hour by hour updates on how it's feeling.

    My techni ice has its own solar charged remote. Its handy as fuck.

    On a recent trip it was in the back of the ute and the ciggie lighter kept vibrating out, i could tell exactly when it happened coz the remote would stop comminicating with the fridge.

    Then a couple of weeks a go i did 8 days in the high country with it. This time i cut the ciggie lighter off and hard wired it to my (only) battery, but at the start of the trip i got a noisy alternator. Throughout the trip i was able to keep an eye on the battery voltage to make sure it was still hunky dory. During the day whilst driving, id set the temps right down, then when parked for the night, bring them back up again. Would have been a bitch to do off the fridge with shit loaded all around it.
    Also coz i only have 1 battery, id start the car every now and again to charge it. And again, i was able to tell when the battery was topped up. The cunt also has a small LED torch built in, which was handy because my torch charger crapped out!

    On another note. The poor old fridge copped a hiding in the high country bouncing around in the back of the ute, other shit bouncing all over it, dust EVERYWHERE over it, doors slammed etc. And it performed admirably! Very happy so far. The bottom of the fridge bag didnt fair quite so well though.

    Delayed reply for those reading this in future.

    The biggest issue with the old CF series was the thermostat fucking up at some point. Some models are piss easy to change this part (youtube has several guides), other models are a little tricky and it might be worth buying an external thermostat from ebay for fuck all.
