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? Silent and truly mobile, absorption coolers give camping enthusiasts all the freedom they need. 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
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
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.

not tried it yet but its bigger than i thought and looks good
by Gwynne (29 Sep 2016)
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.

Having received the cooler /fridge and checked that all the unit was in good order,I now am just waiting to put this unit to good use whilst away in our caravan on long w/e rallies, bring on the good hot weather at weekends.
by peter (16 Jun 2015)
i have only tested it so far and not been away to use it for real but seems to get cold quickly. delivery and price were very good.
by Mr Fry (05 Aug 2014)
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.

Great piece of kit at a great price! very quiet in operation, holds a lot - big enough for a family of four for 2 - 3 days easily. Fantastic customer service from this retailer too. I needed a specific day for the delivery, free postage and timed to arrive within the hour - in a word, "Fantastic"!

Have just come back from our camping holiday and have been so pleased with our new combicool. Dometic really do have the best coolers. Ran it on gas while we were away as no electricity available - works wonderfully.
