Its a workhorseAs a coast to coast commercial truck driver, I have used the Powerchill coolers since 2010. They do a good job of keeping dairy products and bottled and canned drinks cool. Even frozen microwave meals stay solid for a couple days. The cooler the outside air, the cooler the contents will stay. This cooler will freeze items as it cools to about 40 degrees under the ambient air temperature. These last about a year, plugged in 24 hours a day, five or six days a week. Ive had one fan failure and all the others have been the cigarette lighter plug wearing out. The plug is usually very hot when its plugged in.

Versatile and ConvenientUsing it standing up or on its side, there's plenty of room for all your essentials to stay cold during the drive and at your destination for your entire trip. The motor is not loud and no need to keep buying ice every other day. You really need to get the adapter too so that you can plug it in when you get to your destination, as it only comes with the cable to connect to your 12V car plug. The unique thing about this cooler is that you can change the door to open it from the other direction if you want it to. The only thing lacking is the ability to carry it easily when it is in the standing up position. The handgrips it has are for carrying it in the side position. Really a must-have to compliment your essentials for camping, RVing, boating, etc.

Three strikes and your out.Here's my story, sad but true, bought a Coleman Power Chill in March of 2020. It failed by late summer. Contacted Coleman Warranty (what a hassle) they sent me a new one. Yep, you guessed it, out of the box, the fans did not work. Here we go again with warranty (what a hassle again) they sent me a new one, yep, you guessed it, out of the box, it didn't work. Can you believe it???? The fans move about an 1/8 of an inch and stop, repeat, repeat. I just can't recommend this product. I'm hoping now to get my money back. No photo needed, you should get the picture.

Great for over the road driversWhile it is not intended to operate 24/7, this cooler does extremely well. It cools 40 degrees below ambient air so it will freeze contents if the a/c is blasting. I found it will cool more efficiently if you can get it off the hot floor or set it on a rug.
The secret to longevity is to remove the fan housing and blow the fan with your air gun. A good indication is when the inside fan housing starts to ice up.
Try to keep the contents between 32-40 degrees so the food doesn’t spoil. If you get a year out of it running 24-7 you’ve gotten your money’s worth.

Cheap and disposableThe fan on the outside of the cooler is the first failure point, usually at about the 6 month range. The fan on the inside seems to last longer, and fails around 9 months to year from my experience. By replacing the fans with 12v computer fans I have managed to get one cooler to function well past a year. but that is the only way that I have seen to get it to last that long.

outside fangot about 5months of use before the fan quit working I use this 24 hrs. a day 5 days a week so in fairness it's work good just needs to be heavier duty i would be willing to pay $35 to $45 more for a powerchill that would lasta few years without problems

Not cool!first year were cool about 30° below ambient temperature. And no matter what I do I cannot get it to cool more than 10° now. There are no service Emanuels nor parts available.
Dear Coleman, Consider adding additional cooling on opposite side increasing the size of the cooling plates (not just heat synk) and adding a X ternal adjustable control on your lower models and upper model with built in internal digital readout of internal thermometer. Yes, This will make it a refrigerator. Also, if you use close cell foam we might be able to also get better cooling efficiency.

Works fine for my use.I use it year-round in the back of my Subaru Outback,lying flat with the cover on top, plugged into the electric plug there. It keeps things cool in the summer and keeps from freezing in the winter. It,of course, is only powered when the car is running, so things do warm up a bit over-night, though not a lot.
