Does anyone know if this can be used just like an electric cooler for insulin? It is a great deal if so.

It's not huge, but it looks big enough to keep a few bottles of formula comd when travelling (or in the nursery if you're really lazy in the middle of the night...)

Noob question: can this run on a 12v solar panel? If not what is the minimum requirement for solar panel.

I like to fix things as a hobby. The little peltier plates inside these get hot on one side and cool on the other when you put voltage across them. Heatsinks and fans on both sides separate the heat from the cold.

The plates themselves can last awhile in proper installations, but unfortunately they usually skimp on both the thermoelectric grease and on the fans. If either fails, the plate gets too hot and fizzles out.

The good news is they're pretty easy to work on. You can get a big tub of grease, new peltiers and new fans shipped to your door for $15, but if the device is $30, kinda silly to do all that work...

TLDR these aren't very reliable. They COULD be better for the environment if they gave a damn bit giving damns costs money. As it is, you'll probably put this into a landfill in a few years. You're probably better off sticking to compressors and refrigerant as they demand better quality just to work in the first place.

Run rate per label is about 40w at 120v. You must have a very high kwh rate?

Seriously, these things are very inefficient. Thermoelectric compared to a normal mini fridge. As someone mentioned, it runs at 40W? Someone else on Amazon comments said 0.56A max. Either way that's a lot of power if it's pumping 24/7. Feel free to check my math but if you're paying $0.10 per kWh would this cost you $35 per year in electricity if you leave it plugged in?

24 hours x 365 days * 40W / 1000 * $0.10

Most mini fridges are a lot larger, run a lot colder, and would still use less kWh just because the cooling technique is more efficient with a radiator than a TEC

It's not. It runs until it gets to temperature just like every other fridge.

"Easily choose to chill up to 32°F below ambient temperature"

So, in a car or any other environment where it's 75 degrees, the coldest you can get the stuff inside would be 43 degrees. That's optimal! Most likely is it won't be that optimal most of the time.

I'll pass and wait on something more efficient and less affected by the outside environment. It might cost 3-4, maybe 10 times more, but it will work much better and it won't disappoint like this will.

In the meantime, I'll use a small cooler and refreezable ice packs!

in reality you get maybe 20°F below ambient if the unit is double insulated properly. i have a Koolatron P27 - total waste of money. better off with blue ice packs and a high quality cooler box.

Great question. I'd like to know that too.
