Bob, interesting, thank you for the info.  Please post how it works out once youíve used it for a while.  Iím assuming youíll fill it with pre chilled drinks. Iíll be curious how well it keeps things cold.

I have already used it quite a few times.  I live about 1 1/2 hours from Nellis AFB.  Once in a while we go to the commissary and we use the cooler.  Works fine.

If you buy the Igloo or an equivalent, be aware that even a small Thermoelectric cooler aka Peltier cooler consumes a lot of amps, so only use it while driving with the alternator charging the batteries or when plugged in to shore power.  TECís are cheap but also very inefficient.

If plugged into a 12v dashboard outlet, remember, the vehicle battery is not charged when plugged into shore power unless you have a TrickLStart or something similar.
