We have been thinking about ghetting an electric cooler - the type that you can plug into your car. It would be very handy for bringing frozen foods to the campsite or put in (as well as food back from costco). Our experience with them 10 years aas not good - they took too long to cool down and did not keep things cold enough. Anyone have words of wisdom on improvements, or should we save our money.

There are some really good ones out there. I would suggest ARB or Engel. Here are a few companies that sell them.

You can find the Engel ones here:

We bought the Coleman Cooler last year and really like it. I believe it is slightly larger than the other model Kooltron and both are roughly the same price. I recommend you get the adapter so you can plug it into electrical outlets. They don't give the adapters away at a price of $50.00 and the coolers about $120.00 We bought this for some of the long trips we do. You also have the option to invert the plug for keeping things warm, which is handy. The one thing I learned about them last weekend, don't leave them plugged into the car overnight or for any extended period...killed my battery...stone dead. :tsk: :oops:
