The Waeco Mobicool U32 thermoelectric cool box is both lightweight and very economical. It has room for 2 litre bottles upright and its streamlined design means it will fit nicely into the car for those long journeys. Also, the U32 smart lid features a cable tidy and a handle that can either lock the box closed or hold it open with the handle rest built into the lid for your convenience . The U32 has consistent thickness all around with continuous distribution of the insulating foam, allowing reliable cooling to 18°C below the ambient temperature.
The Waeco Thermoelectric Cool Box U32/ V30 DC/AC has a capacity of 29 litres. It's great value for money, ideal for picnics and days out. The unit includes the transformer and will just plug into the wall together with 12v connections.
The U32 will keep food or drink chilled up to 18 deg C below ambient temperature. There is a useful compartment to store the power leads and there is also an economy switch. There is now a USB port on the top of the coolbox.
The lid is locked down by securing the handle down.
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.
Used for first time recently and I am very pleased with the performance of this coolbox. Larger and more efficient than my previous coolbox. It's very efficient with the cool blocks still fully frozen after a four hour journey. Very easy to clean as the top is removable and a bonus is the 12volt or mains facility. I would definitely recommend this item.
Brilliant Bit Of Kit.

It Does What It's Designed For
by Chris Brett (08 Oct 2019)
I got it to use on 12volt when going to and from Germany in the car to keep food and drink cool.
It Really Works Well
by Michael J. Bartlett (07 Oct 2019)
It has a large capacity and easy to use. It has quite a long 12v cable that fits easily in special space in the top when not in use. It comes with a 240v cable that plugs in to a socket on the top .I use this fridge in the car often. I run it off the mains in the house for half an hour till the temperature drops to about 4C then in the boot of the car plugged into the cigarette lighter socket in the passenger area while I drive a long way to the supermarket. I have a small rechargeable 12v battery to keep it going while in the shop. I think it takes about 4amps. Very pleased with this mobile fridge.

Cools Quickly, Quietly And Efficiently On Mains Or Battery.
by Olslewfoot (07 Sep 2019)
Excellent cool box. Bought to use on camping trips and on a small sailing cruiser. It’s efficient, cools quickly and is very quiet. The control of cooling between max and eco is really good. Cools quickly on max and then reduce to eco to maintain a low temperature. I’m really pleased with this cool box.
by Kazza (06 Sep 2019)
Great size and great service.
Did The Job Well
by Guitardavie (21 Aug 2019)
This unit performed well for us on a recent trip to France. The outside temperature was between 25 - 30 degrees C during the day and the contents were kept relatively cool. We ran it on full power and kept it in the shade. At night we knocked it back to Eco - much quieter. Very pleased overall.
by Neil Hodgson (20 Aug 2019)
I use a mobicool for work, I’m a wagon driver and this cool box is running 24hrs for 5 days. It’s reliable, easy to use and clean.
by Steve Lv (12 Aug 2019)
I was a bit dubious at first about a powered coolbox especial when I read a decibel level on the outside of the box of some others. However, reviews indicated the Mobicool was not too loud so I decided to buy one as I had a trip to Scotland planned. On mains power and full chat it is noisy although not too bad. On mains power you can turn the fan down which does reduced the noise somewhat although I did not try taking it into a hotel room. I think putting in the bathroom would be the way to go. On 12V in the car it only runs on full chat but right at the back of my CR-V I could barely hear it and only when stationary. Practically, however, it was excellent and always ensured chilled San Pellegrino and the occasional bottle of champagne was available! I do use ice packs with it, or buy a bag of ice from supermarkets when travelling. The pack I bought two days before returning home was still mostly frozen. Really glad I bought it. It will be in constant use.
by Picky Pete (04 Aug 2019)
Have used the cooler on many occasions, both in car and home, and am delighted with it.
Good Product - Does What It's Supposed To
by Rogerh (01 Aug 2019)
A bit noisy on max but quiet on Eco setting where it works well keeping the contents suitably cool.
Keeps Cold Stuff Cold :)
by Amazon Customer (25 Jul 2019)
Bought this as we are off camping today, didn't really think it would do what I wanted it to but I must admit I am very impressed. I put cold stuff in and even colder stuff came out. Very happy.
Currently its plugged into the cigarette lighter in my van with the outside temp being 31 degrees yet it's still as cold as ever. It has a normal plug too which is also handy.

Stays Cool 👍

The Lead On The Lid Is Akward If You Want To Open It While Still Plugged In But Good Product Stayed Pretty Cool 👍
Excellent Piece Of Equipment
by John7 (13 Jun 2019)
Replaced a 20 yr old one (same manufacturer) with this because original was now too noisy. This is a good size being not too big to be portable and variable temperature/fan speed (which only works when it is on mains electric) means it can be very quiet at night. Really good piece of kit. Minor criticisms are, it would be good to be able to vary speed when on 12volts and an on /off switch on 12v.
by Kerry Grabham Aussie Girl. (07 Jun 2019)
the coola box was just what i was looking for, first class.
Works A Treat. Well Made. Great For Camping.... Although Need A Wine Cooler Too!

Capable, Value For Money Coolbox
by Dave (30 May 2019)
This is my third thermoelectric cool box. So far I'm convinced it has the best performance of all the previous ones in terms of cooling ability. Even empty (when they don't really work well), I got a jug of water from room temp to 6 degrees in a few hours.
I like the fact it is mains and 12v, and on mains you can adjust the power (fan speed) and hence noise, which is handy in a tent at night, virtually silent on eco setting but everything still suitably cold in the morning.
Only dislike is that the lid does not go back far enough to stay open on its own. You either have to remove it or prop it with the handle.
Cooler Than I Thought!
by Chris J (22 May 2019)
I wasn't convinced about this as it isn't a proper fridge, but I does a great job. I've been running it in the heat of my garage for 2 days now off an old 12v car battery, and it is still going. The beers I put in are still stone cold!
Only downside is the speed control (Eco) ONLY works when AC is connected.

12volt Plug Gets Hot Is This Normal ?
by Barry Cerson (22 Apr 2019)
I am very happy with the thermoelectric cooler travelling from home to our boat keeps everything cool. One thing that l am concerned about is that the 12volt plug gets hot at the end is this normal? The mains plug is ok.
Perfect 100% Recommendation
by Amazon Customer (13 Jan 2019)
Used this on a camping trip in Europe temps got upto 42 degrees , kept it running 24/7 and it worked really well kept it shaded . Also good in car when long days travelling nice cool drinks and food . 100% recommended
Very Cold But Noisy At Full Speed
by Nik1959 (30 Dec 2018)
Used to take cold stuff on holiday, driving over 2 days. Taken into hotel on 1st night. Kept both meat and cheese cold throughout. Mains power seems to be needed to reduce the temperature, with 12v used to maintain. At full speed (available only on mains) it reduces temperature very quickly, but is quite noisy. However, when down to cool you can turn the fan down to a very quiet hum. Cannot be adjusted when on 12v. Happy with purchase. Only one complaint is that the handle seems very weak. It hasn't failed, but not sure it could cope with a heavy load (eg 4 x 2l pop bottles or lots of beer).
by David Harper (30 Nov 2018)

Cool Box For Car
by Elaine S. (07 Oct 2018)
Bought this cool box for a trip from UK to Southern Spain. It was just the right size to be kept secure on the back seat. It kept all the contents cool better than expected . I read on reviews that it could be noisy , but failed to notice this, OK you could just about hear the motor in the box running when the car was stationary but this was un-intrusive and not noticeable . Very please with this purchase .
by Rhys Hatherall (02 Oct 2018)

Good Job As A Cooler, But It Is No Fridge
by Ricardo B. (18 Sep 2018)
Does a good job as a cooler. Please bare in mind that this is a cooler and not a fridge, in other words, dont expect this to cool down your food, if the food or the cooler aren't cold in the first place. All in all, recommeded, definitely think this keeps things cooler for longer than a normal cooler would, especially if you have ice in there. Recommended.
by Meg (05 Sep 2018)
I bought this as my previous cooler was showing its age(Close to 10 years). This is far more convenient than my old one. The eco mode means you're not kept awake by the fan in the night and it kept our food and drinks well chilled. It was thoroughly tested during the hot weather and it certainly kept its cool. I would certainly recommend it.
by Andy (02 Sep 2018)
Great product. Kept food super chilled for our 3 days camping. Nice and quiet in eco mode which we used in the evenings
by Chris Woodruff (29 Aug 2018)

Early day's yet but seems to work as stated and quality product.
by Amazon Customer (15 Aug 2018)
We are very happy to have this product. As of now the products are cold and everything is working.
by Simishine (10 Aug 2018)
Very happy with this product. We have just used it for the first time in my car and at a hotel we stopped in for several days. It kept items inside cool and with the ability to alter the fan / cooling system I found this very useful. You can hear the fan on maximum at night time, its far from excessive, so all we did is turn the control switch down slightly, this wasn’t an issue at all. The lid is removable which helps when you want to clean the inside after use. Would I recommend it to anyone , definitely YES.
Excellent Cooling For A Little Bit More Than A Standard Coolbox.
by Mark Gowans (09 Aug 2018)
As soon as I got this item I opened it up,put some beers and cans of diet coke in (that had not been pre cooled). After around three hours the bottles and cans were chilled.I suspect they would cool quicker with a few ice packs to kickstart it along.I then turned the fan down to the minimum setting (no noise at all) and left it over night.The cans and bottles were still nice and chilled in the morning.A fantastic item at a great price.Would definitely recommend.
Good Little Camping Coolbox
by Neil (09 Aug 2018)
Purchased this back in May 2018 for a camping trip. Wanted something a bit better than a cool box and something that would last. We have had a lot of bad luck with camping fridges in the past. I have already a camping Freezer and a Fridge by mobicool/domestic/Waeco so happy with the product quality. In fact I wanted another domestic 40 litre cool box tesco for the last 2 years get in around the summer and have on offer for GBP60 but this year they came out just after we went camping. So how is it. Well together with an icepack the fridge contents nicely chilled sometimes very chilled). The ice pack would last anything from a day to day and a half depending on the outside temp. As these cool boxes work by keeping inside 18 degrees below the outside temp, its needed in the summer. Initially we had the cool box in the tent and it worked fine ,but when the hot spell came we moved it outside under a table as during the day the tent got to warm. Space wise it is 29 litres and is a standard coolbox design. The motor when turned on full is a little noisy as first but it sort of blends into the background after a while. Turn the motor down to say 3/4 and you cant hear a thing. However dispite the heat it worked solidly for our camping trip which ended up being 3 weeks. The cooling mechanism leads to water dripping down from the fan onto the contents of the box. In all fairness that happens with all these camping coolboxes. The handle locking mechanism works and unlike an old coleman camping cool box we had doesnt catch any electric cables. The handle though seemed to bend a bit when picked up and the cool box is full. Overall happy with the purchase, though if tesco had the 40litre one in store when we were looking I would of gone for that over this which cost us GBP63.

Cool As A Cucumber.
by Dig (06 Jul 2018)
Bought this for a camping trip to Europe as our old one has seen better days. We took both boxes so I have a direct comparison. This one is infinitely better. I think with all these boxes you need to pile in some ice packs on a regular basis to keep them at a decently cool temperature especially when it's 35C outside and even hotter in the tent! No kidding, it was that hot. The old machine couldn't cope and the ice packs melted, but this one worked a treat... the ice packs stayed frozen all day and the box was nicely cool. A cold beer to come back to after a long walk - marvellous. It's got a goodly amount of room as well and can take large water bottles, milk etc with ease. Plugged into the mains in the tent and the car when travelling meant it kept everything fresh and cool. It has a bit of a hum that can be even quieter if turned down a bit. Well worth the money. The only downside is that the lid doesn't stay open although you can use the handle to trap it half open.
by Mr goldthorpe (03 Jul 2018)
Great little coolbox. Has a few good features that not many others have. The seal around the lid is a good addition, helps seal the cold in. Glad we bought from leisure shop direct as they are a good choice and any issues were sorted out.
Great Product. Prior To A Trip To A Caravan
by Leshaz (28 Jun 2018)
Great product. Prior to a trip to a caravan, this gets plugged in at home and left to chill for a few hours. Stuff then transferred from fridge to chiller box and plugged into the car for the journey. It works brilliantly and I wouldn't be without it.
Keeps Products Cool Whether On Mains Or 12v

Used as an alternative to a built in fridge in a horsebox. Keeps products cool whether on mains or 12V, good capacity.

I have yet to use it in earnest but it oks good and well made. Looking forward to running it in warm weather.
by Mr R Turner (08 Jun 2018)
Great very usefull
by Gblab (05 Jun 2018)
First bought for a motorhome, to free up space in the small fridge. On mains you can adjust the speed of the motor, so at night, turn it down, and it's not so noisy. On 12v battery there is no adjustment, it's on full speed/cool setting. It does need full speed all the time, and it never got so cold that it turned off. However, if you put in freezer blocks to help start it getting cold, and always leave it on in the car, assuming your 12v outlet doesn't switch off when your ignition is off, it seems to keep things cool for afew hours even when the sun is beating down. It's no fridge, but it helps.
Seems A Perfect Solution.
by John Whittle (24 May 2018)
The inbuilt mains ability is a boon after years of coping with 12v. I use it for traveling up and down the country between homes.

Great Cooling All Week. Variable Speed (economy Mode) When Plugged Into Mains Only
by Mikey (09 May 2018)
I liked the fact it does what it says it does. I love even better that if you ever had a problem, then this is covered by a first class warranty and a first class customer service so buy this item with confidence like I did from leisureshopdirect
Cools excellently and even better that is variable (when plugged into mains only)
Input ice packs in first and it speeds cooling. If like me you are a trucker or traveller, then you obviously can’t turn it down at night so I would suggest pulling the plug just as your about to sleep and it should keep not too bad till morning.
Overall a first class product
Read This - Before Buying
by Aaron Wood (06 May 2018)
After a problem with delivery, I called and they proptly sent me it back in the next day. Installed mine in the boot with the help of a 12v extension lead and to help with space and the noise, as the fan can be quite loud when turned on max power for a better cooler temperature. Mine was intended for tent camping with no other source of power and so with the help of a solar powered power pack and usb to 12v adaptor kept my meat and beer chilled for days. Only issue I would say is the carry handle is quite flimsy and the lid doesn't hold itself open, you need to hold up the lid when getting items out. USB Port is useful but only like 1amp so is slow to charge ipads and tablets.Also the power control only works when plugged into the mains (24volt), doesn't work from 12volt. Also doesn't come with a light inside as their picture would make you believe. NOTE- This is NOT a fridge so don't be expect frosty temperatures, this will keep items COOL; On full power and left turned on for hours and positioned out of the sun, can reach lows around 8-9 degrees celcius. (Mine did anyway). A good purchase with the correct, set-up, cables and adaptors. Update-had this for around a year now...still working fine. If you leave this on for long periods at a time you will get quite a bit of condensation inside, so recommend to lay some paper towels or something at the bottom.

Purchased the Waeco Mobicool box for our caravan, great size and keeps our wine and beer very cold,great for transporting meat.milk from and to our caravan,and fits easily into our car 🚗 and cools on a long journey, read all your reviews and it certainly does as promised,great price compared to other products, we are very pleased with our cool box and great service ,would strongly recommend
First Rate Coolbox
by David A (02 May 2018)
After years of use my original coolbox gave up the ghost and needed to be replaced. We go abroad and use it continuously for at least 10 weeks at a time so I needed a good one. Lots of research and settled on the Mobicool U32. After a delay on delivery due to supply issues it arrived and very pleased. Particularly like the Eco setting for quiet running during the night outside the caravan. We look forward to nice cool beer, wine and water. We will also use in transit to keep our food nice and fresh. Excellent
by Mrs C (06 Apr 2018)
I looked at a variety of similar products and the reviews before choosing this coolbox. We have owned several different ones in the past and wanted one that was lightweight but big enough to take several bottles when we go away in the caravan. It is slightly taller than most so it will be easier to fit large bottles in. I also like the eco setting which makes it almost silent to use. It comes with a mains adaptor which the Halford's one doesn't and it also has a USB socket which could be useful for plugging in a phone or tablet. We have already used it in the car for a shopping trip and it was perfect for the chilled food. I am very pleased I chose this product as it is exactly what we were looking for. Very good price also.

Great Camping/boating Fridge
by M. J. Foote (16 Jan 2018)
I had a crewing friend bring this camping fridge out from the U.K. to the Solomon Islands for use on my boat as both the fridge and freezer had packed in and no chance to fix them until we got to Australia. It has now operated in the tropics in temperatures up to 36C degrees for 6 months non stop and has worked perfectly. We have been able to keep meat for three days, stop the butter going rancid, milk for 5 days and glorious cool beers. It does run non stop on max and it does produce quite a lot of condensation which we have to empty out every week but I doubt it was designed for this sort of intensive use. We solved the condensation by putting everything in containers. The new boat fridge and freezer have arrived but I’ll keep this great little unit for further use.
Did It's Job Keeping My Milk, Sandwich Coldcuts, ...
by Stephen Wilks (29 Nov 2017)
Did it's job keeping my milk, sandwich coldcuts, etc cold while on holiday.
The fan noise becomes rather noticeable above 4/5ths of maximum but still does an effective job at that 4/5ths level. If you intend on using it in a sleeping area overnight, I would suggest you bring a power extension cord so that you can maximize the distance between you and this fan.
As others mention, water (maybe a 25ml shotglass full) tends to accumulate inside the lid machinery within say 5 hours (typical mild uk weather at the time), which tips over the contents when you open the lid. It might have bothered me more but I was keeping my food in a £1 supermarket checkout freezer (insulated) bag with the hopes that it'd further minimize heat loss at times when I had the car engine turned off and this fridge wasn't powered so the water wasn't an issue.
by John G. (26 Nov 2017)
Absolutely fantastic. I've got up some mornings and the food in the bottom has almost been frozen. Dose what it said. Summertime you need to keep it in a cool vented area. I can keep enough food in it for nearly a week and the top is detachable for easy cleaning.
by Don Anderson. (14 Nov 2017)
My Son has borrowed our several times, so we have now bought him one. They have updated it from our but looks very nice.

Works perfect, keeps the food fresh and cool, can really recommend!
by Sam J Ark (12 Sep 2017)
This is a brilliant item. We bought this to serve as a fridge whilst camping and it worked perfectly (we used it off the mains hook-up). A little bit of water does collect inside, but this is easily rectified with a bit of kitchen towel placed in the bottom. It's nice and sturdy with a removable lid for easy cleaning. It's a good size and has the capacity of a normal cool box. The motor is a little noisy but of a night we just turned it down and it still kept the items fresh. I would recommend this product.
Have Used This Several Times. Yes, It Does ...
by Hilary (08 Sep 2017)
Have used this several times. Yes, it does get a bit damp inside but it is always wise to wrap things in fridge type things because they dry out so not a problem. Did have some soggy cardboard round some chocolate I put in there but there is foil inside the cardboard so no problems. The connector that goes into the lighter connection in the car is just a bit tight and pulled out all the mechanism in my car when I disconnected it and it is quite hard to push in far enough to get the cooler working but the actual unit is just what it said on the tin.

We Were Really Impressed With This Cool Box And Very Glad That We'd Bought It
by The Sunray (04 Aug 2017)
used this while camping in France (in a tent) for 3 weeks in July 2017 during which the outside temperature was between 22 & 32C. We were really impressed with this cool box and very glad that we'd bought it. It kept our cheese, butter, chocolate etc perfectly cool and most importantly it kept the beer at a nice cool temperature! There is plenty of room inside and you can easily fit big 2 litre bottles. We also used it in the car plugged in to the 12v socket so we were able to keep our food fresh and cool on the journey which was a bonus. As some other reviewers mentioned, condensation builds up within the lid so sometimes when you open it you get some water dripping on the contents of the cool box but I didn't see this as a big issue. The main thing for me was that it kept our food refrigerated in a tent when the outside temperature was 32C! Some reviewers said the fan was noisy but I didn't find it noisy myself so I guess some of us are more sensitive to noise than others. Overall it's a good product although not the cheapest but I would recommend it.
Perfect Size & Adjustable Fan Speed

Waeco Mobicool U32 Coolbox
by Frank Nicholls (01 Aug 2017)
Excellent service from Leisure Shop Direct, the Waeco Mobicool U32 works very well, is a good size, just the job for the white wine and beer when we're away in the caravan, leaving the fridge free for food. Temperature adjustment is useful and not too noisy. Can recommend.

Ordered on Saturday, arrived on Wednesday. So with one day to spare before setting off on a long drive through France, filled the coolbox with frozen homemade lasagnes. Excellent cooling using battery in car, took into hotel overnight, plugged into mains (eco setting is quietest and proved adequate). Lasagnes still frozen on arrival!

Works well and looks great. Have tried on 230v mains and 12v in car. Look forward to travelling through France latter in the year
Great Bit Of Kit
by Yvonne West Sussex (22 Jul 2017)
Excellent buy I am delighted with the Waeco mobicool performance, to date it has been a massive help keeping drinks cool and transporting food from home to our mobile home on the coast. When the weather is very hot it is a brilliant makeshift fridge, mine has been switched on constantly for almost a month and no problems. Great buy.
A Fine Product

We Love It
by James (04 Jul 2017)
It does exactly what you want it to do keeps water and wine cold bring it up to temperature then put it in eco mode, it doesn't hum so much on eco mode, it stayed with us in the motorhome and didn't disturb our sleep.

Everything Is Great Except The Space In The Lid Is Just Too ...
by Amazon Customer (26 Jun 2017)
everything is great except the space in the lid is just too cramped to get all the wires in and the little slide cover shut. Other than that it is fine - robust and keeps things cool in the car.
Great Cool Box
by Amazon Customer (25 Jun 2017)
Very pleased with this cooler, my husband is a tramper and we have tried lots of others and this one is certainly the best, it keeps the food really cold and fresh, and is larger than others so able to fit things in easier ,would definitely recommend.

Great Little Travel Fridge
by Roger M. (14 Nov 2016)
Great little fridge for travelling. Really useful as 12v to use in the car on a long journey to holiday cottage and then to plug in to the mains on arrival. A little noisy in the car but soon get used to it. It kept our dogs frozen food in good condition on an 8 hour drive. Good quality and well made. Reasonably priced too.

Second one. We bought our first one years ago from ALDI and it was GREAT! This is a slightly different model but just as good. You can plug in at home or into a "cigarette" lighter. They are BRILLIANT!! I use this for extra "entertaining" storage, and I can't do without it!!

Mobicool Coolbox Super Buy!
by Barry Haffey (30 Sep 2016)
I am an OVERNIGHT trucker..... this is the best device I have purchased in years!!! It does what it says on the tin... Keeps everything cool / cold as the fridge on low setting... all my 2 / 3 day sandwiches cold meats and cold drinks - included the dreaded MILK are keep cool / cold and fresh. Its got loads of space for a weeks supply of tall drinks and food - cant wait to use it on family picnics.
It has already virtually paid for it self as I am now spending almost ZERO in motorway services - now I can bring all my cold foods ( inc cooked chicken ) with me for the entire trip!
Tiny criticism - the cooling fan is a little noisy - but his is not really a problem - ALSO - I am learning to use the coolbox correctly - for breads biscuits and sandwiches you need first to seal in air tight / air free bags - as the coolbox is SO VERY EFFECTIVE it will quickly condense the air leaving breads a little soggy.
The temperature setting is very effective - I keep on the lowest setting which is working for drinks at almost ice cold - especially MILK..... I would suggest medium / economy setting if it is just dry foods and breads - you get little or no condensation at this setting.
It is very very easy to use and well designed - comes with the mains cable to cool all your foods overnight before the trip begins and then you simply plug in the 12V cable in the truck or car - the 12V cable tucks neatly and cleverly into a slot on the top.
All in all very happy with this purchase - very good practical and professional piece of kit.

Does A Fair Job Of Keeping A Picnic And Travel Food Cool. The 12v Cable Is Long Enough To Plug ...
by Family Of 5 (18 Sep 2016)
Bought for use in our people carrier on long summer vacation drives.
PROs: Does a fair job of keeping a picnic and travel food cool. The 12V cable is long enough to plug into the socket at the front of the car with the cool box at the back. Robust build that is easy to clean inside.
CONs: The fan can sometimes start to rattle / make noise, which can be annoying in an enclosed car. Usually solved by a quick hit or a repositioning. Getting the cables back into their little drawer is also a challenge.
by Richard M. (14 Sep 2016)
Great bit of kit.
Excellent Purchase, Would Recommend.
by Sharon Sims (07 Sep 2016)
Excellent mobile fridge. We used it when driving to spain. We did use ice packs for the overnight ferry crossing as we unplugged it from the car but these are not needed if plugged in. Very happy, would recommend.

Would thoroughly recommend Leisureshop as a company, the goods were delivered the next day, fantastic service!! If only all companies were like this.
Good product which I use additional to the fridge in our caravan. Fan is quite noisy but this does not bother me. Does drip a small amount of water. Well satisfied with the product
The Best Cool Box I've Ever Owned.
by Medieval Knievel (20 Aug 2016)
The best cool box I've ever owned. Firstly it's a cool box, not a fridge. No cool box will ever run like a fridge so don't expect it too. We took this to Cornwall for a 10 camping trip in some blistering weather, it performed well beyond my expectations, keeping food fresh for a couple of days and our drinks nicely chilled. Yes the fan can be a bit noisy at full speed but we turned it down to eco at night to make it almost silent and cranked it up in the day while we were out and about. Follow the basics, keep it out of the tent and in the shade as much as possible, keep it full as you can, don't expect it to chill warm drinks and try to back it up with ice packs where possible and this cool box will do the business. Kept milk fresh for 4 days in 25c heat. Amazing for a cool box.
... Was Invaluable And Kept The Milk And Butter Etc Nice And Cold
by David Thrower (18 Aug 2016)
Took it camping and it was invaluable and kept the milk and butter etc nice and cold.
by Bobstob (15 Aug 2016)
So far , so good but early days. I hope it continues to work competently. It's deep and takes large bottles and other large items. Handy storage for cables in the lid. When empty or nearly empty, opening the lid tends to overbalance the cooler but that's just something you get used to accommodating.
by Amazon Customer (28 Jul 2016)
by Tinglecreek (19 Jul 2016)
Another fab product. We have had this quite some time now and always take it camping. We also use it as a backup at home eg Christmas time, family parties etc. the handle has now broken but this is due to the amount we put in it and how often it has been used. I would definitely buy this product again.
by J A Gregg (15 Jul 2016)
good quality and actually cools , quick delivery .

I Can't Wait To Get Out And About With My New Cool Friend :)
by Carrie Horth (11 Jun 2016)
I haven't had a chance to road test it yet, thus the 4 stars. But I am very pleased with the size, design and obvious quality of thus cooler. I have plugged it into the mains at home and it seems to cool nicely, and while it makes a noise it isn't very loud so wouldn't be an issue to use in a hotel room.
Good Value For Money.
by R. Hope (30 May 2016)
I bought one as a back up drinks cooler for a bbq party. It did the job but took several hours to get down to cool. It did the job buts its noisy on the coolest setting hence 4 stars and don't expect it to be really chilled.
Excellent Bit Of Kit
by Mr Eddy K (29 May 2016)
Item arrived as expected, now put to work. Great cooler, thought it looked smaller than our old one, but internal sizes are bigger, so can see where the extra capacity comes from. We had to clear the freezer to defrost it, so it was put to use alongside our old one that was giving up the ghost. Kept the frozen items frozen for about 2 hours, but the old one had soggy ice lollies in it, so passed the test for frozen food. Excellent so far, will see his it fares on holiday, but on this performance should be no problems.

Well made ,as described. Just the right size for a family.

Top Little Product.
by Digseyboy (24 Jan 2016)
Top bit of kit! I've had this for a couple of yrs now and what a difeerence it has made to camping and fishing trips, nowt like a nice cold drink after a hot day. Put it on the night before you go with the food or drink in side, freeze a couple of bottles of water to help if your away for a few days. Also it saved the day when the house fridge threw it's hand in, kept the basics fresh till the new one came. 12v/ Mains
by Matt (14 Nov 2015)
We bought this to keep food and drink cold in the car on long journeys up and down the country.
You can plug it into your lighter socket in your car or in a normal UK socket indoors (both cables are stored in the lid and are easily hidden away).
It takes a little while to get to the lowest temperature (approx 30 mins), isn't as loud as I expected (based on other reviews), however it still does make some sound, I wouldn't say it's quiet though.
But, for what it is, it does the job very well and I'd happily recommend it. I've had this product for a few months now and it hasn't missed a beat.
by Mr. Js Downs (16 Oct 2015)
Great product keeps my blood and human organs tasty!
by Amazon Customer (10 Oct 2015)
really pleased with this
by Stuart (04 Oct 2015)
Product does everything it should. I particularly like the variable fan speed as we use it when we stay at Travelodges etc.. so can leave it going all night without disturbance. However, what impressed me most was the service. When product arrived it was faulty as the fan was clearly loose and was making an intermittent buzzing/clattering sound. I phoned up the supplier directly and without quibbling they offered to send out a replacement lid next working day, with the courier to pick up my faulty lid. They even provided the tracking number so I could log on and follow progress of the delivery so I didn't have to hang about waiting. It arrived in Inverness the following day and the new one works well.
This Is Really Useful, Very Cold When Plugged In
by Amazonwoman (02 Oct 2015)
This is really useful, very cold when plugged in. Solid sturdy box. It is quite heavy. There was a problem in transit but the company sorted it very quickly. Great product.
by Martin Ireton (20 Sep 2015)
Super piece of equipment.
by Nobody. (14 Sep 2015)
This is a great cooler. We used it for 2 weeks in France when the temp was over 40 degrees on some days and it worked reasonably well. Its not a fridge though and is more of a motorised cooler box. If you have something in it that is cold to start with then it works very well but if you need it to actually make everything cold then it can struggle on a hot day. For the price and the fact is has a normal mains plug and also a cigarette lighter style plug then its well worth the money.
It is adjustable too so you can turn it down in the night time if needed.
If you are going somewhere hot with it, I'd recommend plugging it in to you car on the way there and put a cold thing in there and when you arrive it will be good to go. The size is great too, we never once struggled to fit anything we wanted in there over the 2 weeks we used it daily.
Great For Camping
by Alison Scowcroft (08 Sep 2015)
Portable, big enough and flexible with mains socket and car cigarette lighter socket too. Held enough food for family camping trip for a week. Pretty quiet when on Eco mode too

Ideal For Camping
by Catherine Blackwood (07 Sep 2015)
Simple to use and a nice size for camping. Keeps things lovely and cold, not too noisy either. Would recommend.
Excellent Cool Box
by Mr Charlton (04 Sep 2015)
Just received this after looking for some time at different alternatives. The product is excellent and cooled down from 17 to 5 degrees in about half an hour with nothing in the box. I like the variable control on the lid which means that you can reduce the speed of the fan so that it is barely audible at night when camping. Very good size that will take large bottles. It is very light in weight. Can use 12v or 240v as there is a transformer built in, this alone could cost you up to £20 on other makes. Useful compartment with sliding lid to put the cables and 12 and 240v plugs. Overall an excellent buy, value for money, with best price from Leisureshop direct.
Cooler Not A Fridge - Which Is Fine!
by M. P. Thomas (27 Aug 2015)
Does the job. If you remember it's designed to keep things cool and not refrigerate like a domestic fridge then it shouldn't disappoint. We took it to the south of France in 35 degree heat, on all day every day for ten days on a French campsite. It kept the BBQ meat and some drinks cool. Inevitably, there was some condensation, which needed draining twice in that time period, but not a major problem. Adding ice packs helps it along, but not essential. There's a variable power switch meaning we could turn it to Eco mode at night, which reduced the running noise. It comes with two in-built power cords, one for the mains, the other for the cigarette lighter in the car. On the latter, it runs on full power only, no Eco mode. On our car, it shuts off with the engine so no battery issues. Happy camper with cold(ish) beer!

This Our Best Coolbox Yet ... By Far!
by Colin (10 Aug 2015)
This is a brilliant product. We have had similar before, but this surpasses them. We have returned from a two week camping holiday in France with temperatures as high as 36 degrees Celsius. The food remained cool and the economy mode meant that we could sleep unhindered by the noise of the fan. I read all available reviews and noted a complaint about the handle, but I reckon that may be the case if it's full of drinks, but we use it for a mixture of food and drink, so no problem at all. A complaint about the sliding cover for the two cables. Yes I agree that it's not very good, but I've decided to keep the 13A plug just hanging out of the storage area to avoid the problem.... as that's smy only complaint, I can live with that fairly happily. I understand that Waeco used to be called Electrolux, so that gives me confidence that it's a pretty good product. I recommend this coolbox.
by Troopy (09 Aug 2015)
by Chev (31 Jul 2015)
The product worked well during at recent tour. It fitted into the boot behind the front seat and worked well on mains and battery. A good buy.
by Td (26 Jul 2015)
Kept our food supplies in good condition on our 3 day car drive to our Skye holiday cottage. Fan a bit noisy, but build quality and overall operation good - ability to run it on 12v car mode and from a 240v domestic supply is a real boon.
Excellent Addition To A Camping Holiday
by Mark Parsons (20 Jul 2015)
Bought this for a camping holiday in Switzerland. Despite outside temperatures being 35C+ during the day it kept butter and milk cool (plus the occasional beer). At night it made things as chilled as a fridge. During the day we ran it on Max where you can hear the fan but at night we turned it to Eco where the fan is very quiet. All in all very impressed and would recommend.
Great Unit. I Have Used It Both On Mains ...
by Star Buyer (18 Jul 2015)
Great unit. I have used it both on mains and 12v. On mains you can turn the power down to ECO and the unit runs very quietly, w=hich is a good thing if it is in your tent overnight.
Only negative for me is the storage of the cables. They are concealed in a sliding lid on the top of the lid of the box and just trying to get the spare mains plug and cable inside dislodged the sliding lid and is very difficult if not impossible to get back into position.
by John A Macken (15 Jul 2015)

Excellent Product And Delivery
by M4dck (13 Jul 2015)
I wrote to Jacksons after they delivered it as I was so impressed with the speed of delivery, communication, quality of packaging etc. The product itself is as described and perfect for our driving tours around Europe - keeping the essentials cool...The fan is unobtrusive, there is plenty of space, there is the choice of car or home power and it feels well made. Very happy.

On The Whole A Good Fridge.
by Mr. C. N. Jones (07 Jul 2015)
This is a great little fridge. There is only one design fault, which others have mentioned, that is the flap which opens over the cord storage compartment. I lost this flap completely when I pushed it open and tried ringing the company for advice, but they don't answer any phones. I persevered and eventually managed to retrieve it and relocate it. It's a shame that such a good product has this flaw.

It Kept The Food Frozen And We Are Delighted With It
by Stuart J Finch (02 Jul 2015)

A Great Little Car Cooler
by Vultch (01 Jun 2015)
We picked this unit up for £30 in a DIY store, there were a pile of them on a pallet. It uses the Peltier effect or thermoelectric cooling. Unlike your fridge there is no compressor, just a lump of crystal that when electricity is applied - one side cools the other heats, a small fan on the lid cools the side that heats you can see a large aluminium heat sink to assist. It runs of 12v via a cig lighter in your car or mains electricity, two electrical leads are stored in the lid accessed via a sliding cover.
There is a temp control this I guess applies more power to the lump of semiconductor crystal and also speeds up the cooling fan, so how effective it it? Well if you set the temp control to above eco you can expect a 10 degree C temp difference between the ambient temp and the temp inside the cooler, go full power and I am getting 16 degree C temp difference. This is more than enough to keep your food and drinks cool in a hot car. How loud is it, well the description says 39dBA .....a more real world example, go boil your kettle stand back 1 meter and listen to the noise thats roughly how loud it is at full power, on eco mode its very quiet.
If your using this in the car, be aware eventually it will drain your battery if your engine is switched off, I guess leaving it running overnight in a parked car may drain the battery, so carry it in to your hotel and power it off the mains. Also if you leave your car for say an hour or two throw in some frozen gel packs, when the unit has no power these will help keep it cool. All in all a pretty great little device, I will update after a few weeks and if its all ok Ill give it 5 stars.

Just the job
by Craigc (13 May 2015)
Has been running non-stop in my garage for nearly a year now, absolutely no problems. Adjustable temp control so can turn it up a bit during high summer though I usually leave it on the eco setting most of the time, during winter thermostat often shuts it down for a while if it gets too cold and ice starts forming. Power usage (running cost) minimal, reasonably quiet.
We Love This Excellent Coolbox
by Nick (11 May 2015)
We love this coolbox. It's saved us a fortune on fridge hire at campsites. Keeps food fridge cold when set to maximum, shut in car overnight so you can't hear the fan blowing. Good size as well for several days of fridgeable items when camping - not too small and big enough for the wine bottles upright! Cables stow away really neatly so you can't loose them.
by Derick (01 May 2015)
Very pleased with this item, exactly what I was looking for

Very Nice Piece Of Equipment
by Jw (02 Apr 2015)
Very nice piece of equipment. We haven't used it yet so cannot comment on efficiency but have no worries on that score after reading other reviews. The fan noise is no issue at all. On full it is just a smooth low volume fan noise. You might not want it during the night, but turned down to eco you can hardly hear it at all. Very impressively it arrived within two days of ordering and free delivery! Very pleased all round and looking forward to our road trip in Europe in June!
Fantastic - Very Impressed
by Pippin (27 Mar 2015)
Used this for a trip to the Lake District in our caravan. I switched it on, in the house, to full power 24 hrs before we left & put a large "freezer block" in the bottom before packing it with ready cooked frozen food. Whilst travelling for 4 hrs it was not switched on, but when we arrived at the camp-site we plugged it into the outside electric point on our caravan & there it sat, working away, in our awning for the next 5 days. I was amazed that even after all that time the food that was left in it was still frozen. I am very impressed with it as it has made such a difference to the type of food we can take with us & therefore saves us time & money as we didn't need to go shopping whilst we were away.
by Mr.timothy Lavery (17 Mar 2015)
works well, both mains and 12v car lead are stored neatly. represents good value
Big Investment But Worth Every Penny
by Mba (13 Feb 2015)
I bought two of these after looking at other sites to transport frozen raw dog food on holiday. They are compact and tidy, kept the items frozen completely on a long journey (you can plug them in to your car charger if you want to be really sure) and then plugged in the holiday cottage and carried on the good work. I cooled them down over 24 hours before (just in case) and they were completely chilled before I put the items in. The cables tidy nicely away in the lid but can be a little tricky to get out and put away. The handle becomes a useful stay to hold the lid up. Next time I will put something waterproof and insulated under them in the car as they (naturally) sweated a little. Love them and they have solved a big problem when it comes to holidays and this method of dog feeding!

Soooooo glad that we bought this bit of a kit for our main summer holiday. Thanks to this, I knew our perishables would be kept cool and no more having to go to the camp site shop for those silly ice blocks that melt in an hour or three ! ! ! This kept all the dairy products cold and more importantly, the Ciders and it is remarkably good at storing a lot of stuff in there :) There was a little condensation in the fridge from time to time, but as long as you emptied it out regularly, and just gave it a quick wipe down, it was fine and no major hassle at all. The fan was slightly loud but as we have two kids and a dog, the noise was very rarely heard until the kids went to bed, but if you slowed the fan down, by adjusting the temperature to Eco mode at night time, it still kept everything cool and once awake in the morning, turn the fridge back up again, and all was well.No need to spend hundreds on one of those big posh ice boxes, this one works sufficient enough and has lasted 4 camping outings this year, so if we got another few years out of it, an absolute bargain in my eyes ! !

by Panda Bear (01 Oct 2014)
Just used this for a trip to France and overall was very pleased. In the car the fan noise is not that noticeable.When plugged into the mains it is, but at least you can lower the fan speed in mains mode. Fantastic helpful retailer and next day delivery was a welcome surprise.
A Nice Coolish Box
by Albo Ien Stein (24 Sep 2014)
Kept our food cool, but not really cold. I wouldn't probably enjoy too many beers at this temp. However, the noise (many mention) was OK. I wouldn't enjoy sleeping in the same room as the box, but for all other instances it wasn't too bad. The box is big and heavy. you have the feeling the handle will snap, so two handed lifting was common... Also the power cable can get in the way of the handle when it is plugged in the car. One last thing is that the handle acts as the lid lock, not really mentioned in the instructions
by John Robinson (14 Sep 2014)
Highly recommended. Excellent value.
Good Cool Box
by Hongu (29 Aug 2014)
Great keeps things really cool. minor niggle it is a bit loud on full. Not a problem in a car just in a tent.

by Mike C. (18 Aug 2014)
Excellent electric cool box for our camping trips - I wasn't expecting it to keep things quite as cool as it did. Great value item.
Well Worth The Money
by Carolyn Horton (10 Aug 2014)
so far so good .. not too noisy as some have commented . we had it on in the car during the long journey on holiday and it wasn't an irritation at all .. invaluable as a drinks fridge in the awning .. only slight gripe is that it doesn't like 2l bottles but stick with 1.5l bottles and all is good ..
Very Good Cooler But Not Fridge
by Amazon Customer (09 Aug 2014)
Took this away with us on camping holiday few weeks ago in the blistering heat of Dorset coast. It coped really well in keeping things cool. Left it on max setting when out all day and despite temperatures in tent of nearly 30oc it kept the milk, bacon, margarine cool/cold and fresh. i say cool as dont expect fridge cold although some items did remain cold. Kept milk fresh and cool for 4 days! Ran the machine at eco setting during night, almost silent. would not recommend max setting at night as a tad noisy. All in all a good buy
Waeco U32 Coolbox
by Mr Wheelwright (07 Aug 2014)
The Waeco U32 is excellent for picnics. The contents do need to be chilled before putting into the coolbox as the thermo-electric chiller would take too long to cool the contents from room temperature. The 12V connector gets very hot when powering the coolbox from the 12V socket in the car.
The ordering process from Leisure Shop Direct was easy and the delivery by Interlink Express was very quick with a 1 hour time slot confirmed by text and e-mail.
by Mr C (04 Aug 2014)
Exactly what I needed thanks
Very Happy Camper, Great Coolbox Would Recommend.
by A. Yates (02 Aug 2014)
Fantastic.Kept everything nice and chilled during a weeks camping. Starting off with frozen food (Burgers,bacon,sausage etc) or ice blocks gives the unit a kick start and speeds up the temperature drop. It got down to 2.5c at one point as I threw in a catering thermometer so I could check.
Well happy with it and thinking of getting a second just for the beers/wine. There where some reviews mentioning the fan noise but switching to max during the day to get it as cool as possible and turning it to eco at night made it almost silent and worked for me.
Happy Happy Happy..
Very Good At Keeping Food Cold Both The 240v And Car ...
by Mark Wardner (02 Aug 2014)
We were a little apre-hensive about buying this, however we ordered it, it arrived very quickly. We took it on our 3 day camping trip. What can I say... Very very impressed, the noise isn't loud at all, on eco setting can hardly hit it at all, very good at keeping food cold both the 240v and car hook up excellent. Will definitely recommend.
Excellent Value For Money
by Milaro (30 Jul 2014)
This is an excellent cool box. I was a little concerned at first because some of the reviews were a little less than good, but I was pleasantly surprised. Points to consider: * -it arrived very quickly, within 48 hours of ordering it. It was packaged well and came in perfect working order. * - Be aware, both the 12v and 240v leads are cleverly stored in the top of the box and are not missing (you won't see them when you take this out of the box, at first! * -It was plugged in in the lounge (at the time of plugging it in, the temperature in the room was over 30 degrees (it was one of the hottest days of the year). It took something close to half hour to get it down in temperature, but once cold, it stayed cold and chilled warm cans of drink reasonably quickly. * - Despite the fact it wasn't bought to use in the car, it works well in there as long as we are driving. Always unplug this when the car is stopped and the engine is off or your battery will die within a very short period of time. * -It is not as loud as I was expecting given the previous reviews and there are changeable controls that allow different chill settings, the lower the setting, the quieter it is! * -It was bought for camping and we have electric hook, of course. It's worked a treat across Europe. I would recommend freezing milk and using that to bring the core temperature down more quickly while away if the country you're in is particularly hot, but we have had no problems with this at all.
I am very pleased with this purchase and recommend it thoroughly.
Great Addition To Camping Equipment
by Kentish Lad (28 Jul 2014)
kept everything cool but I made the mistake of putting frozen items in it so there was lots of water swishing around the bottom as these melted. The heavy lid does have a habit of slamming shut but overall I was happy with this product. There was slight noise from the fan but nothing excessive.
by Mr. M. M. Allan (21 Jul 2014)
Works well. I keep it in the back of my car.
by Mr. Paul Bonehill (21 Jul 2014)
Really good, we actually use this a overflow fridge as well.
by Huw Phillips (20 Jul 2014)
Waeco/Mobicool U32 12 volt and mains camping coolbox. I have just used this cool box for a week continuously on a camping holiday. The temperatures were up in the 30’es and it keep the inside of the box cool all the time. Recommended
Great Product However The Downside Is That It Is Easily ...
by E L Pegg (20 Jul 2014)
Great product however the downside is that it is easily damaged. The handle and side cracked easily which means the product cannot be used to its full capacity. SO take care and make sure it is well protected where ever you put it!!
by Andrew Hickford (13 Jul 2014)
Good size but thought it would cool drinks a bit quicker though

Keep It Cool.
by Willsgrandma5 (06 Jul 2014)
Have bought this to replace a smaller one which has broken. We use it to keep food cool when we travel across France to self catering holiday. This looks good and works well - I have checked it out. It is tall enough for large bottles and is quiet when running. The control on the top seems effective. It came with the adapter for using in car and 3 pin plug, unlike our previous one which needed a converter attachment.
by N Fields (05 Jul 2014)
Excellent cooler box used it for a week during recent hot spell 20c plus every day everything always cool would definately buy again
by Martin J Watts (03 Jul 2014)
Excellent bit of kit does what it says on the tin. Plug into mains power for hour before using 12v for best cooling results
by P. Wheeler (30 Jun 2014)
Have used this loads since we got it - used for a few days away in the uk and then kept a whole load of milk init for a charity event. Really pleased with it and takes enough for all our requirements. Would thoroughly recommend
A Good Buy
by Kenp (13 Jun 2014)
This was ordered in a hurry and delivered on time: a good, efficient coolbox which does just what it should. The handle seems to be holding up despite other,negative, reports.
Good Product, Excellent Supplier!
by Martin Kent (13 May 2014)
A very good product, it does exactly what you expect. It cools well below the ambient temperature. It is not a fridge so it does not have a thermostat so you will need to keep an eye on the temperature (had to buy a cheap fridge thermometer - our only gripe!). Our first coolbox was damaged during shipping and Jackson's Leisure were brilliant about getting a replacement out to us.
What A Great Replacement
by Scalelectric (06 May 2014)
The old cool box served us well over many years but gave up the ghost. On looking around for one that works on 240v and 12v we came across this one, and what a find!!!!!, It works perfectly and is so quiet as we use it as a back up fridge in the motorhome.
by James B (29 Apr 2014)
Does what it says on the label perfectly. Excellent build quality, excellent performance. I would buy again and recommend to anyone.
by Jamesb (26 Apr 2014)
After lots of reviews went for this option as a middle of the road solution. I don't do camping much butwhen Ii do Ii expect my wine to be cold. Result!
Cool Camping Cooler
by Dennis Roden (21 Apr 2014)
had this for a while now and its superb, fits loads and keeps everything nicely chilled, used in a motorhome, great for on the move travel.
Looks Like A Ok Piece Of Kit
by Cornwallgurl (04 Apr 2014)
When our rather antique italian hard cold box finally met its maker recently (large, easy to carry, easy to clean, mug/glassrests in the lid) I was keen to get an electric version. Over many, many years I had struggled to say in various languages in Europe, "can you put these cold cores in your freezer, please, so I can collect them after breakfast" (or words to that effect). So, a bit of research, a lot of diverse opinions, but I chose this one for its versatility. So far have only used it for small freezer defrosting. It seems fine. Maybe a planned drive to Rome/France in the early summer will give it the necessary test. Hope it delivers.
by Margaret Silcock (07 Mar 2014)
I ordered this for camping. It was fine and worked well. I even leant it to my neighbour when her fridge failed. It was a bit noisy indoors but didn't notice it when camping.Too much other noise on camp!
by M. Evans (26 Jan 2014)
much cheaper elsewhere [...] so shop around. These type of coolers are not designed for constant use - remommend if holidaying in south of France to rent a full size fridge from the site instead but for short term use they are ok.
by Ctrl_alt_dileep (25 Jan 2014)
Our car has a 12v socket at the boot which is ideal for using this. It kept our drinks and sandwiches cool. We packed it with lots of frozen food in Antwerp and brought it back to England via the Euro Tunnel. 6 hour journey and the food was still frozen. Since September 2013 we've used it at home as a bottle cooler and it has been working without any issues.
You need to clean the bottom as it collects water inside after a while, other than that we've not had any issues.
by Paul Jackson (11 Jan 2014)
Great buy it's well made has ampel storage space and it's light to carry and when it's running it's quiet
Works Pretty Well
by Johnston (14 Dec 2013)
We used it for taking frozen chickens on a 2 day car journey in summer. The box worked pretty well (it would have been even better had we plugged it into the mains overnight, as well as being plugged into the car battery during the day). We plugged it into the mains for 12 hours before using it. There was a slight hum but no more than one might get from a fridge ie not noticeable. Then we stacked the chickens in the box, and spread the contents of a couple of supermarket bags of ice cubes in the spaces between them. Everything was still frozen on arrival in the evening of the second day. Excellent product.
by Mrs. Maria Wain (07 Dec 2013)
Bought this for my son to keep his food cool. he loves it. Good size can fit a lot into it. Keeps food fresh, drinks cool. Not too noisy just a gentle hum.
by Peter W (01 Dec 2013)
This is a good cooler, it does the job well. The only down side is that it is a bit noisy, especially when it is on full blast. We use it as extra cooling capacity for our caravan when we are abroad and have to have it on full blast in hot weather.
by Christopher A Hanily (11 Nov 2013)
the plug lead holder area is a little clunky and small but unit works very well both on car and household plugs
Good Bit Of Kit
by Fergus Gordon (31 Oct 2013)
Very useful if travelling by car to keep food etc cool. Having both mains and 12V plugs is very handy
by John L (23 Oct 2013)
As cool boxes go, it hits the spot. It's a tad noisy when plugged in to a 12 volts D.C. supply, but not overly intrusive. When plugged in to the mains and on Eco Mode it quietly purrs away to itself. It's very convenient having both power leads permanently installed with their own stowage compartment in the lid.
Very Good And Quite Quiet
by Stephanie Hilton (17 Oct 2013)
Keeps everything nice and cool, and quieter than the last model we had. Would recommend it, though quite expensive to purchase.
Good Value For Money
by Picture Phile (23 Sep 2013)
The box does what it says on the tin and keeps the contents cool but don't expect it to get as cool as your domestic fridge. However when travelling from the English Midlands to the far north of Scotland over 2 days it kept the milk, butter, etc fresh both on 6v in the car and mains overnight in the hotel. One small gripe, the storage for the mains and 6volt cables is very cramped and on it's first use the cover got dislodged. This does not affect the operation of the unit but was a bit disappointing.
Excellent Product - Good Value For Money
by Grace B. (20 Sep 2013)
Despite initial reservations as to how effective this product would be, we have been delighted and impressed with how quickly it cools food and drink from room temperature if it is plugged into the mains, and how well it keeps cool food cold when used in the car. We even found that on arrival home, after the coolbox hadn't been plugged in for over 24 hours, it was still cool inside. We have had a three-week touring holiday, staying in Travelodges, and have been able to partly self-cater by using this product. We had it in the room with us, and found it to be quiet and unobtrusive. The handle held up well to transporting full loads in and out of each venue. We would highly recommend this coolbox.
Very Good Cool Box
by Nick Uzzell (19 Sep 2013)
We bought the unit for a trip to France and it kept everything cold for the whole 12 hour journey. We chose this item as it could run off the mains as well as 12V and didn't require the extra adapter box as some units do at an extra cost. It was certainly useful being able to plug it into the mains. This meant we could plug it in the night before it was needed in order to pre chill the box and then it was just a case of loading it into the car and plugging it into the 12V supply. We also put some ice blocks in the bottom just to help with the cooling but these were by no means essential.
I have read some other reviews which say the fan on the unit is very noisy but this we did not find the noise too intrusive. Whilst you can certainly hear it running when it's in the house, when it was in the car and the engine was running and the stereo on we couldn't hear it.
One minor criticism of the item would be the handle. It doesn't feel very strong and with it fully loaded the handle was bending a fair bit. I wouldn't trust it to carry it any significant distance.
Really Good Item!
by Manuelkiddie (17 Sep 2013)
We have been on a long trip around 1000 miles and the cool box has been in the boot of the Golf all the way with no problems at all.
Noise from the fans was not audible at all and all the frozen goods in the Cool Box were in perfect condition on arrival.
We have only had this for a couple of months and so far no problems at all, we are hoping that this will be the case for the foreseeable future.
by Karen (14 Sep 2013)
Very cautious buying another electric coolbox, as we've had one before which really didn't live up to the job! But I must say this one is fantasic and really keeps food and drinks very cold. Even putting in bottles of beer at room temp were icy cold after a couple of hours. We bought it for camping so Eco setting on it for turning it down at night so not to hear fan was a great bonus. Highly reccommend .
Great Kit , Great Value...
by Johan Rf (04 Sep 2013)
This is a fabulous bit of kit. Robust and roomy it does the job perfectly. We used it in the Vendee this summer with temperatures into the high 20s and it kept everything cold, not just cool. No Ice packs needed and we could sleep just fine with it whirring in the background, at night the setting can be turn down one notch to less the motor noise. You have to get used to the condensation that collects and drips inside and plan around that but thats just a feature-allowed-for not a fault. Works great in the car too. Time will tell if it lasts but if I get 4-5 years good service out of it I will be happy.... RECOMMENDED !!
As Good As A Fridge!
by Mr. D. J. Bracey (04 Sep 2013)
We had the previous version which worked perfectly for several years and only failed because it was left out in a storm. This one is better and we are currently using it on a 2wk holiday in France with temperatures in xs of 25C.
It gets beers down to really cold with no problem. The lid can be propped half open, useful when rooting around for the 2nd or 3rd! The 'eco' setting is useful to make it quieter at night and seems to maintain the same temperature in inside as the night air cools. Also of course can be run in the car.
So, its a really great cool-box, as good as a fridge and I can strongly recommend it.
An Excellent Cooler
by Dr. M. Wilderspin (03 Sep 2013)
Because it is both 240v mains and 12v Battery model, it is excellent for taking on ferry and in car to southern Spain. It replaces the previous model which we have used for 5 yrs. Take care with the handle.
Portable Fridge For Car
by Mrs. J. Lavender (31 Aug 2013)
This product achieves everything I wanted it to. Does not take up too much room in the boot of the car. Works very efficiently and is quiet enough not to be intrusive into the car when travelling. Good capacity and keeps food in really good condition. Start the process in the house then transfer to the car. Allows us to gather food when on holiday from different regions to bring home.
Great Product-best Price!
by Mrs Richardson (27 Aug 2013)
Great service from LSD. The delivery company used is great- you can track your parcel to around the corner! Really useful.
The cool box, too is fab. Deceptive in space- we fitted 30, 500cl cans in this weekend, and it was a godsend. Bought to free space up in the caravan fridge for actual food, it does its job perfectly. Cools wonderfully, but I would have to disagree with some of the claims of quietness. When not on Eco it still has a very audible buzz to it, that I certainly couldn't stand in the van! Took some zoning out to sleep with it on in the awning tbh, but maybe I have sensitive hearing! Still a great product tho, and thoroughly happy with my choice. Would use LSD again too- was cheapest on net, even taking into account P&P.
Great Addition To Camping Kit
by Andy Murray (26 Aug 2013)
If you go camping with an electric hook up then this is just the trick to keep essential supplies cold (milk, butter, beer/wine). I've read some reviews that it needs an ice pack to get it cold in the first place, but we've found it to be just fine.
by Becky (22 Aug 2013)
Worked really well as a back up fridge in motorhome. Great for keeping big bottles of water, pop and beer cold!
Perfect. Very Pleased
by Mark B (12 Aug 2013)
Purchased the Mobicool U26 to take frozen food on holiday and was amazed that after nine hours the food was still frozen. Even though the U26 is not a freezer the insulation and cooling properties work perfectly. Perfect for camping and days out. The Leisure shop was the best value I could find anywhere in the UK and was recommended as one of the best buys online.
by Amazon Customer (11 Aug 2013)
Easy to use arrived on time in fact early. Does work fine plugging into car or into home socket. The box is just a fridge so designed to maintain things cold not to freeze them. Doesn't make water icy cold but does keep it cool on long journey's over seas
by Derry Cooper (10 Aug 2013)
keeps cold food/drinks cold. Works best when food/drink is already chilled before using. reliable and convenient in use. There is small amount of noise from motor, but is not a problem.
by Wysiwyg (08 Aug 2013)
Very good. When we camp we try and find a stream to put our tent. This is so we can keep things like milk, beer, wine etc cool. This method does'nt work for butter etc. So this is great.
The Best Coolbox For The Money
by Adamc (07 Aug 2013)
I looked at lots of cool boxes and am really pleased with my choice. Keeps everything cool and the motor is very quiet. we have a new born and wanted it to keep her milk cold as the caravan only has a small fridge, it does this perfectly, With both plugs built in a great buy
Great Piece Of Kit
by Sue (03 Aug 2013)
Need: something to keep food and drinks cool whilst travelling Need: additional equipment (to small fridge) in holiday lodge This fits the bill: plugs into car socket and will also plug into mains electricity socket Motor noise is tolerable Once down to temperature, adjust to the "eco" setting and it is difficult to hear the motor It will probably get a full 5 star ratings after it has been tested on holiday
by Maureen (01 Aug 2013)
This cooler is absolutely brilliant, like a tardis inside. It works equally well on mains or in the car. Other reviews stated that the handle was not too good, but when full I think it is best to carry it from the bottom and not use the handle, because of the weight. Used this coolbox non-stop for 2 weeks whilst camping and it was great, everything was very cold and we didn't have to buy milk etc.every day which we have previously had to do. I have recommended this to my daughter who has now bought one. Definitely worth the money.
My New Cool Box
by B Thomson (31 Jul 2013)
I haven't tried it it yet, seems well made except for a slide which is supposed to hide the flex, it appears to have disappeared under the casing?
by Stuart Reid (27 Jul 2013)
Holds a good amount of food/drinks. Can be plugged in using mains or cigarette lighter in car. Cools very well and keeps cool for several hours after switching off. We have used it as a replacement fridge whilst travelling. Not too noisy. Only downside is that the handle could be a bit sturdier - although this has never caused a problem.
Waeco Mobic Cool Box
by Kayak (24 Jul 2013)
Delivered before the date emailed, have tried the cool box and it kept the food items at cold and I'm very pleased with cool box, the noise that the two motors make is not that loud. if you find you can't sleep with the cool box in the tent I found plug into the car cigarette lighter and locking it in the car over night or as I did used a rechargable battery jumper starter
A Good Buy
by Christopher Kirby (23 Jul 2013)
Provides a reasonable sized box area and its removable lid allows good access. only thing wrong it takes a while to build up cold inside need to switch on and plug at home to get it up to speed
by Bevian1 (14 Jul 2013)
Looks good. Was surprised to find the built in 240v power function. Will be used in ernest for a trip to Europe next month and then a permanent fixture in the truck!
Amazing Cool Box/fridge. Mains And 12volt!
by Wilko999 (01 Jul 2013)
I brought this off Amazon from Peak Outdoors. Service was second to none from them. Great seller! The cool box is truly awesome. I took it camping with us for its first use this weekend and it kept everything as cold as the fridge at home. I was a bit dubious leaving it in a tent incase of fire hazard but shouldn't have worried. Like previous reviews it does make a noise, but its not that bad, but as it was a small 3 man tent I cranked it up to full in the day time and at night I turned it onto the Eco Mode and I couldn't hear it and I slept (soundly) right next to it. Even on Eco mode the food/drinks were still really cold in the morning. Plugs are tight getting them to fit back in the storage slot, but like most things, when they're out of the box they never go back in :-) I absolutely love it. It's the best coolbox I've ever bought (and first electric!)
Great Cool Box
by Jr (13 Jun 2013)
Arrived well before estimated date, good quality item, can't wait to use on our up coming trip. I'm sure it'll keep the beers nice and cold.Thanks
Excellent Product Highly Recommended
by Kjc (08 Jun 2013)
As I read the reviews before buying I respected the handle strength by careful loading and handling no issues , easy to use while travelling and in the awning when caravanning where the extra space to boost soft drink storage was a real benefit. Money very well spent fan noise not an issue as mentioned even compressor fridges make some noise, you can adjust the fan speed to a comfortable level and still achieve good temperature drop , using as I write during Caravan trip in our first taste of June summer. Good buy ,good quality and recommended for campers and caravanners and the day trip in the car perfect for trips to the country or beach. Everything cool a couple of drops of water after 3/4 days again no issue.
Not Noise When On Eco Setting.
by Sandy I (01 Jun 2013)
Loved this piece of camping equipment. You always worry when making a a purchase of this nature but it was uncessary. At the start the box is noisy but once it reaches its temperature it switches itself off and back on again when necessary, on th Eco setting - much better than freezer blocks. Very pleased with it.
by Online Buyer (18 May 2013)
I have had cool boxes before but have not been very satisfied .This product really does cool drinks and does not take much room .I found the other reviews of this product very useful .
by 507 Cdr (21 Apr 2013)
Have used this cooler a few times since purchase and am more than pleased with it. Really keeps drinks cold with miminal noise and you can plug it in to the car as well. Would recommend it rather than cheaper ones we have had which did not last long.
by J Choppin (08 Jan 2013)
This does the job well, but is a bit noisy - however, once in the boot of the car the noise is not too noticeable.
by Dexy (28 Nov 2012)
Fantastic portable fridge for my camping holidays, some reviews have complained about the noise from the fan but honestly its not that loud at all, keeps all my beer, wine and food nice and chilled and plenty of room, i would recommend this product to anyone who goes camping, fishing or days out in the car as it has a 240v and 12v car adpator.
Mobicool Fulfils Promise
by Stellar (24 Nov 2012)
The Mobicool kept food really cold for two long journeys and over a whole w/end in a hotel room. Milk remained fresh throughout and was still ok on return home and in the domestic fridge until finished. The only complaint is that the handle comes off far too easily so that the box had to carried in arms which was awkward. Disappointing but otherwise a good product
by Zarfon (24 Nov 2012)
The unit itself is quite large and well made, but the noise from the cooling fan is loud can be intrusive.
by P. Loveday (12 Nov 2012)
This product was initially purchased as the result of the need to drive to Southern France and back, both journeys requiringf food to be kept at a reasonable temperature. The product did not let us down and even though it was not operating during the 6 hour sea crossing still kept the food as fresh as it was when put into it. Well worth the price paid.
by Nic T (08 Nov 2012)
Great product, used it on a family camping trip. Quiet, reliable and plenty of space inside. Really pleased with this purchase. Plugs into the car too for longer journeys.
by L. J. Gee (09 Oct 2012)
We bought this as a spare fridge for upstairs to make it easier to do night feeds for our baby! It works a treat, a little noisy but does the job brilliantly. The car adapter is ideal for keeping all your fridge bits cool for a long journey. Winner!!
Buy With Confidence
by Jamest2500 (27 Sep 2012)
Firstly, It arrived next day, so top marks on the delivery. I bought this product for a trip to SW France, and its primary role was to keep things cool for the long trip, and for the odd picnic. As the other reviews suggest, it isn't the quitest of machines - it makes the same type and level of noise as a desk top fan, however, you soon get used to it, and it just becomes part of the ambient noise within a few minutes. I had it sat on the car floor in the foot well behind the driver's seat, and it didn't stop either of my two young children sleeping for most of the journey. It really came in handy during the holiday, as the fridge in our cottage wasn't very big, so we had it plugged into the mains constantly for 7 days where it kept water, wine and milk lovely and cool throughout. To give an indication of the internal space, it will comfortably hold 6 x 2 litre bottles of water. I agree that the handle isn't the most robust, however, as I was aware of this from other reviews, I refrained from lifting it soley by the handle when loaded, and as a result I haven't had any problem at all. Its a decent bit of kit, and worth the money.
Worked A Treat

We bought this for a first proper family camping trip in France as a "mini fridge" to have in the tent, and it did the job perfectly. We wanted to keep small dairy items, fruit juice and wine cool in it and it was excellent. If you put a bottle of wine in it in the morning, it was chilled by the evening, just what was required! In terms of other comments about the noise and condensation, the noise wasn't a problem at all - at worst, a low hum but certainly not enough to keep any of us awake. The instructions warn of inevitable condensation and that is the case but it's not a problem, you just need to empty the contents every 2-3 days and wipe it down - takes a couple of minutes. All worth it for the impressive refrigeration abilities.
Awesome Portable Fridge!

As others have already reviewed, this little guy (actually very spacious) kept our food amazingly cold for almost a month. It's been running faithfully during our trip in either the car or the hotel.
I would definitely purchase this product again, for even more money than what was advertised.
One Of The Best Cool Boxes
by P. Higgins (16 Aug 2012)
Bought this for use during a European road tour. Everything worked perfectly. Filled it before starting each leg and then stopped during the journey to eat and drink it's contents. With the 12v plugin it keeped the box cooled to 14 degrees C below cabin temperature. As as the inside tempwerature was 20 degrees C, then everything was kept cool. Even butter stayed solid. As it also had 220v plugin we could take it into the hotels with us as well.
I thought the fan noise would be a problem, but actually you cannot hear it above the usual road and radio noise.

Great fridge all in all. Has been used on 2 long weekends, and kept the food and more importantly the beer nice and cold without the need for any icepacks.
Worth the money and great addition to the camping set up.
Super Cool !!!

After spending a week camping in our tent where it can get very warm the fridge kept everything really cold. Really is a very good product.
Waeco/mobicool U32 12 Volt And Mains Camping Coolbox
by Amazon Customer (31 Aug 2011)
Fab product worked better than another more expensive e-coolbox. Even had ice on the top of box! Same amount of fan noise as more expensive e-coolbox. Would recommend this coolbox.
Amazing Little Fridge
by Rsharpe (22 Aug 2011)
I really made use of the Amazon product reviews as I was shopping around for a camping fridge to take away with us on our 2 week road trip around Europe. I hope that this review helps you to make the right decision.
I have nothing but praise for this little fridge! It did the job fantastically for the whole 2 weeks we were travelling. And the fact that it comes with a mains cable as well means it can be plugged into a regular socket when you are parked up. It is a little noisy but I found it quite soothing as it drowned out the noise of other people on the campsites. There is a little moisture that is produced from the fan so every few days you need to take eveything out and give it a wipe down otherwise you end up with a puddle at the bottom! But the main thing is that it kept everything cold and fresh. We managed to fit loads into it too - it's surprising how large it is! We kept it fully stocked with beers, wine and fresh meat and veg for the entire 2 weeks. I highly recommend this product.
A Great Buy
by Bonusbob (15 Aug 2011)
I bought the coolbox for a caravan holiday, for extra fridge space. (caravan fridges are always to small). & it proved invaluable in the awning keeping the beers cool, then handier still we put the perishable food & the sandwiches in it for the trip home where it plugged in to the car. Perhaps a bit bulky if you have a lot of passengers, but was fine for us on the rear floor space.
by Rogal (26 Jul 2011)
Bought from Riversway Leisure to give us more room in the caravan fridge, so as not to take up all the space with tonics and beer. Works brilliantly. Takes a few hours to get really cool but what do you expect. Used it over 7 days in the awning in an average of 25 degrees last week. Never popped it into Eco mode, but I probably should have done. Everything very cold (it actually froze a pepper I dropped in for convenience) One of the best products for the caravan I've purchased since the motor mover!
by Rickster68 (06 Jul 2011)
Just used this for the first time on our camping trip for 4 days. Weather was very warm and the coolbox did an excellent job keeping the pretty full contents at a cold temperature for the duration (there was even ice forming inside the lid). On the rear of the unit is a Max / Eco switch (no mention at all in the handbook). I had this set to Max for the duration so don't know if this is recommended for long periods. Would highly recommend.
Electric Cooler Box
by Freda (04 Jun 2011)
We gave the cooler box a trial run on our trip down to Italy, and it was excellent over 3 days. It kept food fresh while it hummed away quietly on the back seat - no disturbance. When we picked up friends, it went into the boot and the cord stretched comfortably through the car. At stops it could be taken into hotels and kept going, thanks to the alternative cable, which came as a regualr accompaniment, unlike many.
by Fred, Cornwall (27 Sep 2010)
I ordered this when Halfords let me down. It arrived the next day and we tested it that weekend camping. It kept eveything very cold and held a good amount of food and beer. The motor is just a gentle hum and didn't keep us awake at all. Very good value and quality.
Mobigool 12volt And Mains Coolbox
by Peter (15 Aug 2010)
brilliat coolbox well worth the money ideal for weekends away camping/caravaning i recommend it
by Rcw (19 Jul 2010)
We bought one of these coolers for use in our folding camper and it's been ideal. The fan does hum but we didn't find this a problem even though it stands right next to our bed (mostly because it runs constantly so it becomes a background noise as opposed to tripping on off like some which can be irritating). Also the fan doesn't give off any heat which we were expecting it to do. It cools to below 5 degrees just like a normal fridge and it's incredibly light when empty. As another reviewer has mentioned because UK plugs are so bulky the mains cable can't be stored in the slot made for this job so we just keep the mains lead in the camper as its the only place we use it. The 12v lead does fit in the stowage slot and as its permanently connected it can't get lost. The 32 litre capacity provides plenty of room for the weekly basics in what is still a compact unit. I recommend this as a great improvement over a standard cool box.
by Anon (03 Feb 2010)
This is an excellent product that is capacious yet not over large to carry. It works well and the mains and 12 volt leads mean it is so adaptable. There is a gentle hum from the fans when running inside the car but it is at a very acceptable level. It would help to have space to include the plug within the lid in some way and I find it frustrating that the handle comes off so easily, but all in all, a very good purchase.
by S. Emerson (26 Oct 2009)
Arrived very quickly as we needed it to go camping in 2 days. Very pleased with the goods.
by Innes Muir (05 Jul 2009)
Excellent cooler, really pleased with it. It's relatively quiet, cools quickly and keeps the beer cold whilst camping. What more could you ask for ?
1 FAQ on the Dometic Waeco Mobicool U32 - 12/230V Thermoelectric Coolbox
What are thermoelectric coolers?
The thermoelectric principle was discovered in 1834 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.
