Boaters who like having cold food and drinks on a hot day will really appreciate the three new NRF (Norcold Refrigerator Freezer) Portable Compressor Refrigerator/Freezers from Thetford Marine. The NRF-30 has a capacity of 1.06 cu. ft. or the equivalent of 42-12 oz. cans, while the NRF-45 is sized at 1.59 cu. ft. and can accommodate 64 cans. The largest model, the NRF-60, has 2.12 cu. ft. to hold 86 cans.
The NRF models utilize CFC-free foam insulation and refrigerant to work better than traditional coolers, which require ice. A separate freezer-only section helps users freeze select items, while an easy-to-clean removable wire basket provides convenience and organization. The stainless steel interior prevents staining and improves cooling.
The hermetically-sealed compressor has built-in, low-voltage protection. An Electronic Control Panel displays the internal temperature and allows the user to set the desired temp. An indicator light alerts owners to installation issues, such as improper ventilation or high ambient temperature. To prevent battery drain, the NRFs offer three settable levels of battery protection and automatically turn back on when voltage returns.
With a durable and corrosion-proof plastic exterior and heavy-duty, yet removable handles, NRF models are built to last. An easily reversible and removable hinge lid is included, along with a DC cord with cigarette lighter plug for convenience and a two-year limited warranty. An optional adapter allows AC operation and an optional carrying case helps protect the units.
