FRIDGE FREEZERS

Can the ARB Fridge Freezer be powered by a solar panel system?

Yes, ARB Fridge Freezers have been tested with name brand solar panel systems. Please contact the solar panel system manufacturer for a recommended system.

How many amps does the ARB Fridge Freezer draw?

Amp draw depends on how often the compressor needs to run to maintain the set temperature. This will be determined by the ambient temperature, how often the fridge door is open, and the contents of the fridge. During optimal conditions, the ARB Fridge Freezer will draw under 1.5A to maintain the set temperature.

Is the ARB Fridge Freezer rechargeable or does it need to be plugged in to operate?

All ARB Fridge Freezers require a constant supply of 12v, 24v, or 110v to operate.

Why does my fridge only work on 120V and not when it's plugged into my car’s 12V?

Most power outlets on newer vehicles do not offer a full 12.6 volt when off due to improper wiring gauge for the application. ARB Fridge Freezers use a low voltage cutoff that prevents the fridge from running if it detects a low voltage. This feature ensures the fridge freezer will prevent your starting battery from going completely flat. If your vehicle wiring is not adequate, ARB offers a stand-alone wiring harness (10900027) that is compatible with all ARB Fridge Freezers.
