The Nova Kool units are a best buy in a small refrigerator for off grid power.  They’ve been favored in our catalog for over 20 years. Nova Kool offers 26 DC and another 24 AC/DC models. Made to build into RV or marine cabinets or off grid home!  Galvanized metal exterior with black door.  White is optional or you can slide paneling or Formica to match your décor, or even use a square of carpet on the door for durability and insulation. Well finished interior with powder coated shelves.

Running power has been reduced with new dual voltage Secop (Danfoss) compressors and a new refrigerant. Single door models consume about 35 watts when compressor is running: under 3 amps 12 volt, 1.5 on 24 volt.  Running time varies with temperature, but is about 30% duty cycle on a 70 degree day.  When buyer glues extra 2 inch foam insulation to the whole box it will cut per day run time and energy use in half.  The new Secop (Danfoss) BD35F compressor uses R134A (CF3-CH2F) gas for atmospheric protection. Interchangeable for use on 12 or 24 volt.  Reliable refrigerator.
