As long as the gas used is LPG gas it will run from Butane or Propane.

The useful cooler achieves cooling of up to 25°C below ambient temperature and can also make ice cubes for your drinks – an ice cube tray is included. With a capacity of 41 litres and room to store 1.5 and 2.0 litre bottles standing up, the Combicool RC1200 EGP is the perfect camping cooler. It is also extremely affordable offering all this for an incredibly reasonable price!

What is a 3-way absorption cooler?

Gas operation in a remote field, convenient 230-volt hook-up at the campsite, power supply from the cigarette lighter socket in cars or motorhomes – anything is possible! Switch-over from one energy mode to another in a trice! Whether gas, 12 or 230 volts, the refrigeration system adjusts to suit your needs – up to 25°C below the ambient temperature.

THIS COOLBOX USES THERMOELECTRIC TECHNOLOGY

What is the difference between the cooling technologies?
ABSORPTION COOLING
Details of distinguishing features:
  • Gas-powered cooling independent of electricity
  • Three way cooling – Gas, 12 volts DC or 230 volts AC
  • Silent operation
  • Cooling performance depending on the ambient temperature

The Technical Bit
A concentrated ammonia solution is heated in a boiler and expelled as vapour. The pressurised ammonia gas is then liquefied in a condenser. Supplied with hydrogen, it evaporates and in the process extracts heat from the storage container. The ammonia gas then enters the absorber where it is reabsorbed in a weak solution of ammonia. Finally, the saturated solution flows back to the boiler where the whole cycle starts again.

THERMOELECTRIC TECHNOLOGY
Details of distinguishing features:
  • 12 / 24 / 230 Volt
  • Independent of inclination
  • Lightweight and low-cost
  • Cooling performance depending on the ambient temperature

The Technical Bit
The thermoelectric principle was discovered by J. C. A. Peltier, which is why the temperature generating parts of thermoelectric systems are referred to as Peltier elements. Thermoelectrics are based on the fact that cold or heat energy (depending on the polarity) is generated when a DC current is conducted between different types of metal. The heating or cooling capacity is further enhanced by heat exchangers and air fans. Ideal for low and medium cooling volumes.

COMPRESSOR TECHNOLOGY
Details of distinguishing features:
  • Excellent cooling performance even at extreme ambient temperatures
  • Refrigeration and deep-freezing
  • 12 / 24 / 100 – 240 volts
  • Low power consumption – suitable for solar operation
  • Battery protection
  • Quiet operation with little vibration
  • Independent of inclination

The Technical Bit
Compressor units operate using a refrigerant that changes from liquid to gaseous state in the evaporator. The evaporation extracts heat from the interior of the cooling unit – the temperature drops. The compressor draws in the refrigerant, compresses it and passes it on to the condenser. Here, the absorbed heat is released to the atmosphere. The refrigerant liquefies again and flows to the evaporator, where the cycle begins again.

Game Changer!


5 star review(5/5)
Just got back from a four day trip and the first time using the fridge. Decided to buy something decent as cool boxes weren't doing what we needed. So went for the domestic combicool. It is really good, used 12v and mains electricity. Service and delivery were brilliant. Thanks

Really Cool


5 star review(5/5)
Such a "COOL" piece of kit, made our camp experience in the hot English weather so much easier. Just remember it is a big unit to fit in the boot/trailer, well worth it for group camping.
