12V Camping Fridges
A camping fridge and freezer is a great addition for any camping setup, and can be considered a necessity for extended camping trips where you need to keep your drinks cold and food fresh for longer periods of time. With a 12V fridge freezer, there is no need for ice, which means you’ll benefit from more space to pack your consumables & you won’t have to worry about ice melting and leaving water behind to mix in with your food. Our 12v dual zone fridge runs off a 12V DC or 240V AC power source, which means you can connect them up to your dual battery system and use your car fridge wherever you go. Whether you need to keep your food fresh on a family camping trip, or need to keep your drinks cold on an overnight fishing trip with your mates, portable camping fridges are designed to make your life easier.
What To Look For When Buying A Dual Zone Car Fridge
When buying a camp fridge, there are hundreds of different models & factors to take into consideration. So how do you know which one is best for you? We’ve highlighted some key things to look for when buying a camping fridge freezer to know you are getting the best value for your dollar.
→ Brand Name
well known brand name can speak high quality. Australian Direct has been offering camping and outback proof gear for 12+ years and continues to be a leader in the space of innovative camping products. We’ve spent long enough in the industry to build up a strong network with suppliers and manufacturers, which allows us to produce higher quality products and offer them at more affordable prices.
All of our KickAss fridges come with a genuine SECOP compressor and are backed with a 5 year warranty. Every fridge has a compressor - It’s essentially the motor within your fridge that enables refrigeration. A high quality compressor means more efficient and effective refrigeration, and also means a longer life for your fridge. SECOP (aka Danfoss) is the leading brand when it comes to quality fridge compressors, and if your portable fridge freezer doesn’t have a SECOP compressor, some may consider your fridge lower quality.
→ Fridge, Freezer, Or Both
When you’re looking for a 12V camping fridge, it’s important to consider whether you want a fridge, a freezer, or both. Our top of the range camping fridges offer 2 compartments which can each be separately set to their own temperature - This is called a Dual Zone Fridge Freezer. Which allows you to use one side as a fridge and the other as a freezer, or both fridge/both freezer. Many people opt for a Dual Zone Fridge Freezer as it allows them the freedom to use their fridge how they like, however if you don’t need 2 compartments, you may opt for a Uni Zone Fridge. We offer 3 different sizes of KickAss Dual Zone fridges, and a 48L KickAss Uni Zone Fridge.
There are various different sizes and shapes of camping fridges, and deciding which one is for you ultimately comes down to what you will be using it for. If you need to store both food and drinks for the whole family, you may need something a bit bigger - like the KickAss 75L or 95L Dual Zone Fridge. If you’re only after something to keep your lunch refrigerated throughout the working day, or your drinks cold at night - it may be more suitable to opt for the KickAss 42L Dual Zone or KickAss 48L Uni Zone Fridge.
All KickAss Fridges are smartphone compatible, and are easily controllable via our modern app. Simply connect your smartphone to your fridge and you can set the temperature of each compartment and monitor your fridges performance. Although most camping fridge freezers today offer a digital display that allows you to control its temperature, the ability to control & monitor your fridge via your smartphone is not available with most camping fridges.
→ LED Lights
All KickAss fridges have internal LED Lights which automatically turn on when you open the lid, and remain off when the lid is closed to save power. Although not a necessity, it’s handy to choose a camping fridge that has internal LED lights so that you can find your food in the dark.
