Infomon fridge freezer

Post by canderson16 » Sun Nov 27, 2011 12:21 pm

Has anyone used a INFOMON fridge/freezers, we have always had Engel but they have become so expensive and we require a larger second portable fridge freezer for camping trips?

hi canderson16

I have one...cost me $400+ delivered I think but around $600 normally...from the horizon-store on ebay... Had my first problem today, transformer died so I asked about it and got "Hi there,
That will be no problem,
Please send it back to us we will replace for you .
The address is following
ATT: horizon-store
5/110 station rd
Sevenhills nsw 2147"

So have to recommend that seller.

It is 80l, strongly built, quiet, digital temperature display, on/off switch, comes with cover and 240v to 12v transformer, lead to 12v ciggie socket....but no divider so either freezer or fridge, not both.

It is pretty hot up here, low thirties at the moment, I run it continuously and have had no problems getting it freezing at minus 16 degrees when I want.

Hope this helps.

I posted this ebay item a couple of days ago. $269 plus freight as per the table listed.
I also mentioned that Aldi expect stock in warehouse next month for similar unit, which sold out on 2 previous occasions.
We want the gas side of it for free camping.
Could be worth a look. But let the buyer beware.

Once you go above 40L chest type fridge power consumption increases dramatically. For example a 50L doesn't use 25% more power than a 40L. 50L will use 35% more power than a 40L. If you start to use a portable chest type fridge as a freezer power consumption doubles as a minimum.

I am still waiting for my replacement 240 volt transformer and I have spent countless hours trying to ring them and sending emails and I still don't know if the fridge works on 240 volt it does on 12 volt I purchase it in November and sent the faulty transformer back beginning Dec . I think we have to let people know they are not a reputable company to deal with when it comes to replacing anything
