How does a camping cooler work?

Our camping coolers use one of three types of cooling technology: absorption, compressor or thermoelectric cooling. Each technology has its own particular advantages that recommend them for certain conditions:

Thermoelectric: small, compact and lightweight, our thermoelectric camping coolers are convenient to take out for a day at the beach. With cooling up to 20 °C below the ambient temperature it is a reliable choice for short camping trips in moderately warm climates.

Compressor: with a large storage space combined with deep freezing functionality (-22 °C), our powerful compressor camping coolers are ideal for use in hot climates and longer camping trips.

Absorption: enjoy the freedom to travel off-grid with the option to power your absorption using gas. Cool up to 30 °C below the ambient temperature and ensure a quality night's sleep in your tent thanks to its superbly silent cooling.

The ideal cooler for your camping trip

When choosing the ideal camping cooler it is important to consider the size of group who will be dependent on its cooling, as well as the length of your trip.

  • Weekend camping trip, couple (2) – Mid-size passive cooler or small thermoelectric cooler
  • Weekend camping trip, family (4) – Mid-size thermoelectric cooler or compressor cooler for freezing
  • Long summer camping trip, couple (2) – Mid-size compressor cooler plus a small passive cooler
  • Long summer camping trip, family (4) – Large compressor cooler or, if no freezing is required, an absorption cooler

Passive camping coolers for short trips

For short camping trips, a day at the beach or fishing, passive cooling solutions can maintain your comfort without the need for an energy source. With their superb insulation, our passive coolers can keep ice cool for days and have capacities up to 111 litres! For the best results, we recommend pre-cooling your food and drink at home before adding it to a cooler filled with ice cubes or ice packs.
