Keep Your food and drinks COLD!

Once you start touring around this wide brown land we call home, you’ll get over refilling your esky with ice every couple of days pretty quickly, especially when you’re pulling out soggy bacon the next morning. The best solution to cold drinks without ice? A portable fridge in the back of your 4WD!


The Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge is a great option for the budget conscious tourer, featuring the trusted SECOP BD35F compressor, adjustable temperature setting from +10°C to -18°C, reversible lid, 12V and 240V operation, tough polycarbonate body, separate dairy section and included basket dividers. All this and the space to fit 81 cans if you pick up the 60L model!

What makes the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge so good for 4WDers?

Well, the SECOP BD35F compressor means that your fridge will cool down fast, and then keep what you put in there nice and cold. The easy to use controls mean you can easily set the temperature of your portable fridge from +10°C to -18°C, which allows you to choose wether to use  your fridge for keeping food and drinks cool on shorter trips, or even loading it up with frozen food to last a longer remote trip.

When you’re living out of your 4WD, power usage is one of your top priorities, even if you’ve got a killer 12V setup or are doing heaps of driving to recharge your batteries.

With thick polyurethane insulation to keep the insides cold, the average power usage we’ve found is a miserly 0.83 amps/hour to keep the portable fridge down at 5 °C, even on a 32 °C day! You can keep the fridge cooler, and let it work even easier, by wrapping your 12V Portable Fridge in a protective insulation cover, with easy Velcro opening and handy side pockets. This means faster cooling with less energy! The seal has been tested and proven to ensure the Adventure Kings 12V Portable  Fridge holds its temperature perfectly.


At 630mm (W) x 580mm (H) x 360mm (D), the 60L Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge is sized to suit a wide range of vehicles, and can easily slide in and out of your 4WD, even when mounted on a set of Titan Rear Drawers. It also works well on ClearView Draw Slides, or inside a wire fridge cage to keep it easily accessible. On long trips when the boot is full of camping gear such as chairs, swags, bags and boxes of food and supplies.

When you mount the Portable Fridge in your vehicle, the tough handles provide an easy to use and sturdy point to secure your fridge to the drawer slide using the supplied Tie Down straps. These handles also make it easy to move the fridge from your vehicle and around the campsite, with the added bonus of also being able to run on 240V power. Being able to run on 240V means that you can use your portable fridge to hold extra food and drinks at BBQs and parties in your backyard, and not just when you’re out on the tracks.


The tough polypropylene body and lid also makes the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge suitable for mounting in the tub or on the tray of your ute. This tough construction makes it perfect for 4WDers, because when you’re gripping the steering wheel and bashing up a tough rutted track, the last thing you want to worry about is if your fridge is going to be in one piece at the top. With the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge, you can relax, focus on driving, and then kick back and relax when you get to the top, enjoying a cold beverage from your portable fridge with your mates.

The reversible lid is another great feature of the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge – this means you can easily install the fridge on either side of the rear of your vehicle, and have it be easily opened without having to try and reach over the door, or get a step ladder to get into the bottom around all your camping gear.


One little feature of the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge that really makes your life easier is the internal LED light, which automatically activates when you open and close the lid, just like your fridge at home! There’s nothing worse than having to fumble around in the dark looking for a late night snack, but with the Adventure Kings 12V Portable Fridge, you’ll be able to easily find that last beer or the packet of Tim Tams for dessert. And inside there’s a removable basket with two dividers so your food and drinks won’t bounce around on even the toughest tracks and the separate dairy compartment is perfect for dairy or even fruit and vegies.


So get yourself a Portable Fridge today, and get out there!
