18 qt. Compact Cooler (12-Volt)

The Koolatron P20 Compact 12 Volt Cooler was specially designed to fit in those tight spaces between and behind the seats of your car, van or truck. The 12 Volt cooling unit plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter and can be set to keep your food up to 40 F colder than the outside temperature. The Compact Cooler has an 18 qt. capacity, which is enough space to hold 23 (12 oz.) soft drink cans. Its' latch-less lid can be opened with one hand and also features a swinging foldaway handle for easy carrying. Other features include a unique cord wrap, lighter storage spot and interior fan. This is the ideal cooler for families on-the go. Pack the P20 cooler with snacks for family trips or at sports events. With the Koolatron AC Adapter, sold separately, you can also plug the P20 Compact Cooler into any outlet in your home, hotel or motel. Koolatron coolers have been proudly manufactured in North America for over 20 years.

This cooler fits perfectly behind the front seat of my car! The perfect answer, not only for trips,: but also to be sure food is refrigerated and available for someone in my family who is on a severely limited diet. --- just "in case."

I am so glad I purchased this cooler! It transported our food nicely in the car. We had ordered the adaptor as well, which was essential! We spent a week in a hotel that ran out of ice daily and had only 5 refrigerators for 500 people attending a convention. The cooler meant there were only 499 vying for those refrigerators. It kept our food cold, almost too cold. The hum is constant so it was more like a white noise rather than disruptive like things that cycle on and off.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Clean, Convenient, Good Use of Space, Nice Design

We bought this so that we could carry my husband's meds with us while on vacation and it worked beautifully. The unit fits conveniently behind the front seat of the car so it's not in the way. It worked very reliably for us. We packed in some ice packs just to make sure, since we had never used the cooler before and his meds are expensive. That turned out to be a good idea because one day we forgot to plug it in for several hours in the Florida sun. It kept his meds cool with no problem, so it has reasonably good insulation.
We also bought the Koolatron AC power adapter at the same time. The cooler is very easy to carry in and it fits beautifully on a luggage rack. The power adapter gives you a great sense of security. We found the temperature was more reliable on the cooler on AC than for the in-room fridge in several hotels as the fridge was freezing our water bottles. The one trick to the power adapter is that you have to be careful to get the contacts lined up. The plug is not designed so that there is only one "right" way to plug it in. So, you just need to be careful lining the contacts up.
