The Waeco W48 portable cool box is designed and manufactured to the highest standards by Dometic Waeco. The Waeco W48 coolbox has a capacity of 48 litres which can be run from 12v DC in either the upright or lying position. The Waeco W48 camping cool box can cool to 18°C below the ambient temperature and is made from insulating material to help reduce your power consumption. The Waeco W48 cool box and has a two sturdy wheels, multi function pull out handle, dual voltage auto switch, accommodates standing 2L bottles, integrated cable compartment, integrated active battery security to ensure your battery never runs flat, 12 volt leads included and 230v plug included.

48 litres of cooled goodies are a heavy load to carry. That’s why both of these
high-capacity coolers offer a very special feature: two sturdy wheels and a foldout multi-function handle ensure that the day’s provisions glide elegantly to the picnic site.

Or the beer crate with its 0.5-litre bottles that fits completely in the W48. And there’s plenty of room for a water crate with a height of approx. 32 cm. In terms of energy efficiency, both are labeled with A++. Additional highlights of this cooler: 12/230-volt connection, refrigeration and heating functions, ABS Active Battery Security. And of course there’s the “bottle flap” in the cooler lid: it keeps the cold air inside when all you want is a cool drink from a bottle of water.

What is the difference between the cooling technologies?
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.

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.

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.

5 star review(5/5)

5 star review(5/5)
Well made Waeco W48 product and looks good,we also like the two openings so it makes it more efficient. It was damaged in transit but with no quibbles on a replacement that was not a problem. It’s not the smallest but that makes it more usable and stable and not just for drinks .

Great Cooler

5 star review(5/5)
I did an awful lot of Internet searching before deciding this was a good buy at a great price, delivered in just over 24 hours as well. The cooler does exactly what it says on the box, this IS a great buy.

Excellent Cooler...Good capacity and cools contents well

5 star review(5/5)
Just arrived back from 2 weeks in Spain and used the W48 as an additional cooler to the one in my Caravan. It worked really well even in the warm temperatures and was suitably impressed considering its capacity and relatively cheap price. We also used it in the car on 12V during the journeys and it worked well there as well. The only drawback that I could see was that when it was on its maximum cooling setting it did make a slight buzzing sound.

Great Coolbox!

5 star review(5/5)
Very pleased with the Waeco W48 coolbox. Checked the temperatures and it performs exactly as it's meant to and with the mains plug-in you can chill it right down before making that big journey on your 12 volt socket. The first delivery was damaged but handled very well by Leisureshopdirect who immediately organized the collection and replacement on the next working day - Can't recommend them highly enough!
