In this video, I review a 50L mobile AC-DC fridge/freezer, model F40C4TMP. The product was mainly of interest to me for off-grid camping (aka boondocking). Since it is capable of operation using 12VDC or 24VDC power is could be ideal.
A way to complement our existing RV gas fridge providing more fridge and freezer capacity, fewer trips to town to stock up on fresh food. Also could be handy for extended RV parks stays to purchase bulk deals. RV OEM freezers are notoriously small.
Overall the product performed as advertised cooling down to a low of -4F (-18C). The temperature is digitally controlled via a touch keypad. In my tests, the power draw averaged around 30 watts. Low enough to not be an excessive drain on most people’s RV off-grid systems or a car alternator/battery during road trips.
*Fair Disclosure* I received the F40C4TMP fridge free of charge in exchange for a review. However, I received no monetary compensation. Opinions are my own.

Portable AC-DC 50 QT. Fridge/Freezer (1 Year Review Update)
In this video, I update you on the current performance and overall condition of the 50L BougeRV portable AC/DC fridge freezer combo unit. First, I test the fridge function using the 12V power plug powered via my Bluetti AC200P portable power station.
Then I try it with AC power from the camper testing out the deep freezer operation. I also pull the cover and give you a look at the condition of the inner workings, such as the electric controller, compressor, condenser, and fan. Overall it’s still in good shape after a year of moderate use and continues to cool well with a relatively low power draw. I was able to freeze a large jug of water solid overnight.
