Rated 5 out of 5 by from ..Great item for traveling or fishing on the Boat! ...Hello there!!! This is my 4th puchase of the Power Chill! I have (1) that is a 'Hot/Cold' and (3) 'Cold'!!!!! These coolers meet my needs perfectly!! I bought (2) extra power supplies because I have one cooler/supply that quit on me. That cooler ran 24-7 at my Fish Camp for over 18 months. Just a note: Read the labels on the cooler cooling unit. It say defrost 'Frequently'.... if you hear the 'Fan' ticking or sounding goofy.... unplug the cooker for about 45 minutes...it will defrost!!! This is a great item and super $Value$!!! Semper Fi! Godspeed!! I highly recommend!!! <')\\\\\><

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheaply made Ipurchased this cooler for kerping drinks & fruit/ vegatables cool while traveling. Unfortunatly i just didnt use it for the first 2 years. It sat, new in the box. So , im certain that when i call customer service tomorrow ill be told its out of warranty. Just wasted $100.00 The first time out it wirked well for 5 days. Then it just went down. No power, AC/ DC nothing. I do not recomend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product This product works great as advertised ... However the cig plug needs to be cut off and replaced with a regular 110 male plug and connected to a female plug and then wired directly to the power post in the OTR tractor. The cig plug will not support the power that the cooler requires to operate. I also replaced the female cig plug on the AC power adaptor that I ordered from Coleman with a female 110 plug. This allows for great power flexibility when I pre cool the cooler at home before i place my food products in the cooler before leaving on a trip. Hope this helps. I have had my current cooler for almost 4 years

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OTR Truckers Not Happening This cooler needs to defrost every 3 days. The cord runs hot all the time. If you plug cord into a 12v extender or dual adapter the adapters will melt and fuses pop. Tried converting 12v to 110 under bunk but converter got hot. This cooler would be great for a family that needs to keep items cool for short trips. Meds/snacks. Not recommended for truckers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This cooler was a replacement for one identical just different model. I had the old one for more than ten years, I replaced 3 fans during that time. This cooler is less than 2 years old and I'm already on my third power cord. I ruined one trying to remove burnt fuse, second one was being used, plug got hot bumped against dash plug shattered. I just plugged in number three on Monday and it blew fuse on Thursday. Truly disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only lasted two months I'm an OTR driver and I bought this to replace a cheaper cooler that had died. It was great at keeping my food cool even when it wasn't plugged in because it is well insulated. However, I've had to get the fuse in my cigarette lighter changed twice because of this cooler. The power cord gets extremely hot when it is plugged in. After about two months of owning it I noticed the fan sounded like it was working hard than normal. Now it is dead. I spent roughly $140 for this cooler. I love The size of it and it worked well while it worked, but it just didn't last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It is a total piece of junk and a ripoff at $135. I bought the junk cooler at whites petro in Virginia 3 days ago and it never once got cold or even cool. I fan on the inside does not work. It obviously never did. Went back to the petro they told me too bad contact Coleman. It’s been 2 days and no answer from Coleman. I will never buy a Coleman again. Btw this is my 6th cooler in a year they never last long. I’m buying a small fridge from Walmart for $80 and a 300 watt inverter will run it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never even met expectations Opened the cooler from the packaging. Allowed the 3 hours it recommends to get to the cooling temperature, all seemed well and fair. The Next day when i am leaving for my weekend trip I load the cooler with ICE packs and the perishable foods. while hooked up via cigarette lighter (12vdc) the cooler never even got a cold. In fact, the cooler remained warm and then even got warmer just to melt the ICE packs and start to spoil the food inside. Made absolutely sure that the connections were correct, multiple times and it was a total lost of over $100 in food for the weekend. By far the biggest waste of money was purchasing the cooler for the trip, and even more so was all the food that was lost due to its failure. Quite possibly the last coleman product that I will ever buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I have had this cooler for at least 20 years and couldn't do without it. We have only replaced the cords once and that was all. I travel from RI to Fl and use it to save on foods, condiments etc and make sure I have things for when I arrive and don't have to run to the market right away. At one time they made a smaller one for a 6 pack of soda that I bought for someone to keep their lunch in and keep things cold with ice. I would love to get another one but don't think Coleman makes them anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and Affordable This is our 3rd Coleman Thermoelectric Cooler! We use it for camping and long road trips. It also can be used for trips to the grocery store, especially here in Florida! I do however, hope that Coleman works on improving the two fans and motor, as they do not hold up if used for extended periods of time and unfortunately, there are no replacement parts available. (Reason for only 4 stars) All in all, it's worth the money, if you get two years use, without the hassle of buying ice!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped working within a week This was bought for our company truck to keep food and drinks cold when my husband is out for weeks at a time. It does keep food and drinks cold according to the product description. He unplugged at night just so that it wouldn't run constantly. It has stopped working completely. This was bought in 7/26/2020 at a truck stop and it is now 8/10/2020, however, they will not take it back or even exchange it without the original box it came in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Available Everywhere I'm on number 3 in 6 months, First one in one month, second in 3 months. When you use it full it freezes the inside fan and the outside fan go's out first. When it's working it keeps Food and drinks very cold. This is great for a occasional user on a camping trip and disposable after a season. I don't know of another that works better when functioning. I wish Coleman would provide a "Powerchill refridgerator" same size but heavy duty. thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good iceless cooler This was for use when travelling a few days and needing to keep perishables from going bad. It worked well. We followed the instructions and never kept it plugged in longer than 4 hours a day, and when not plugged in, it still kept the food cool. It is not s refrigerator, so the food wasn’t really cold, but the food didn’t go bad. We have not tried plugging it into our car, but was told if doing so, to always do it while the car is running. It is a good size, light weight, and can be used upright or like a traditional cooler. Happy with our purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced for what you get. Works great, when it lasts. I've had several over the past 5 years. Each had blown the glass fuse many times. The one I have now blows the fuse weekly. And you can't just buy this fuse. You have to buy the replacement cord for a DIFFERENT brand that won't even work on this, to take the fuse out of that and place in this piece of junk. If you're going to make these to be such disposable pieces of garbage, knock the price in half.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power cord issues I'm a long haul trucker and have owned 3 of these coolers over 6 yrs. Best electric cooler I've ever used. Problem is power cord. Design of plug end allows the spring inside to act as a resistor, heat up and collapse causing cooler not to work. I made my own cord and plug to solve this issue and it's lasted 6 yrs with no issues. Get it together Coleman engineering. Simple problem simple solution

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 4th use, no cooling going on. Frustrated in Omaha Purchased this unit for a road trip home from Tennessee, following my sister's wedding, and worked great. Two other short distance trips worked great. Last week short trip to campsite, NO WORKING COOLER!!!! Checked plug, fuse and even tried multiple vehicles and a new wall adapter, fans running but no cooling going on. Help?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works never I loved this cooler for the one time we could use it, then the fan stopped. Figured it was bad luck and got a replacement only to have it fail again. So frustrated as I have medications we need to keep cold and this was perfect. Back to the drawing board. I really expected more from a Coleman product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth your money I have bought this item twice, within one year. The first one lasted six months before it completely quit working. I tried to change the fuse, use different plug and nothing. So I went and bought another one same item and it only lasted three months. This one still runs but it don’t get cooled. And my truck stays ice cold. Replaced the fuse, unplugged it for a few days, and nothing. It never was frozen cause I checked. Total waste of money. Do your research and find a better made cooler. Trust me you’ll be happy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from mostly neutral I have probably bought 6 of these coolers over the last 6 years. I am a commercial driver and I stay on the road long-haul, away from home. The item is described as to be able to keep the inside 20 degrees cooler that the outside ambient temperature. The cab of my truck is usually between 65 to 70 degrees which should enable the inside to keep a safe temp. The cooler should be wired in some way to protect the freezing of the unit inside the box, this burns out the fan and condensing unit making a 125.00 cooler useless in a flash. In spite of this I went online before Christmas and ordered another unit using a 20% discount, so with shopping I paid in the 130.00 to 140.00 with shipping. Here is my main complaint, I did not receive the charging cord to use inside my home. In the past I remember that coming with the unit at purchase. Unless the issue with over-freezing is corrected (which I feel is do-able) I would discourage anyone thinking of buying this unit, to be aware that you could burn up a 100.00 + purchase in a moments time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could be better I use mine in my truck(over the road). They work great at first, but the fan goes out and they become almost useless. Used to be able to get replacement fans for them. Cant find them anymore. I'm on my second one, disappointed that I can get parts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cooler is fine, AC adapters don't last. Use it when camping 4-5 times a year to transport food from home to where we have the camper stored. I'm on my 3rd AC adapter - the adapters seem to be good for about 3 years. New problem: 12v plug getting very, very hot - too hot to touch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I use this on my annual trips to South Dakota if you line the bottom of the cooler with it laying down with frozen bottles of water it will keep food at 32 degrees for several days. After 3 days water still halfway froze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from affordable as a secondary refrigerator we ordered and received a 40 qt thermoelectric cooler. It worked beautifully on our first trip but unfortunately the 120volt power supply failed and we are now limited in how we can use the cooler.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beyond disappointed We bought a new Intech camper, and it came with this trash. Claims of 40 degrees below ambient temperature are a lie. Maybe 10. If I could give it 0 stars I would. Do not buy this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesnt last long... Works great, when it works. I've had my current one for just shy of 2 months and it went out on me. I've had 3 over the past 5 years, none of which has made it to 6 months.
