Portable Compressor Fridge/Freezer

Whether chilling snacks for a quick outing or supplying auxiliary cold storage for longer trips, a portable compressor refrigerator/freezer makes an ideal travel companion. Transportable Norcold NRF fridges from Thetford Marine, available in three sizes, are easy to move almost whenever and wherever extra refrigeration is required.

The NRF 30 holds 42 cans, while the NRF 45 can keep 64 cans cool and the NRF 60 has a capacity of 86 cans. These durable, quiet and energy-efficient refrigerator/freezers deliver full-size cooling performance, but are compact enough to stow almost anywhere. The NRF 30 measures 15.6″ H x 15.7″ W x 22″ D; the NRF 45 is 16.9″ H x 15.7″ W x 25.5″ D; and the NRF 60 is 20.4″ H x 15.7″ W x 25.5″ D.

Locking in cold like a holding plate, the stain-resistant stainless steel liner promotes maximum cooling power.

Top-loading NRF portable fridge/freezers are fitted with an easily reversible and removable hinged lid. A convenient lift-out storage basket offers quick access to food and drink, and also simplifies cleaning. An electronic control panel displays the internal climate, allowing the user to set temperatures as desired. Changing the unit from a refrigerator to a freezer is as simple as turning a dial. A separate refrigerator-only section prevents freezing of select items.

All Norcold products ensure safety by using UL-approved components, and CFC-free insulation foam and refrigerant. The hermetically sealed compressor provides built-in low voltage protection. An indicator light alerts users to any potential installation problems. Battery protection with three settable levels prevents battery drain, and automatically resumes unit operation when voltage returns.

NRF units are built with a durable, corrosion-proof plastic exterior, with heavy-duty removable handles. They accommodate off-level operation up to 30º. Units include a DC cord with cigarette lighter plug, with an optional AC adapter also available.

All three models are 120V/AC, 12-24V/DC, and come with a two-year limited warranty. Retail prices for the Norcold NRF series range from $549 to $699.
