I managed to snap a photo of the label on the compressor. It is a Danoss 101Z0200.
The attached datasheet for the compressor indicates the capacity of the compressor. The values I've recorded are within the reasonable range of what you would expect for this unit.
I haven't found any "Civilian" freezers that can handle the rough use of the "AcuTemp" . They are actually designed for rough use. Maybe some manufacture will design one for civilian use.Anyone interested in something like this, look into Engle, ARB(made by Engle), and Dometic. I bought a 50qt ARB when my wife wanted to get a chest freezer, and it has served us well. I ran it in my 4runner and my Sears Diehard Platinum(same as Odyssey) would run it for 2 days before drained. They all run on 12v or 120v. The ability to give out rock hard ice cream sandwiches while out on the trail in summer heat is fantastic!
None of these are cheap, so keep that in mind when shopping. The ARB also claim to be engineered for the jolts of offroading, but they are still built by Engle, so that may just be marketing.
Yes the "AcuTemps" are spendy units, and if you need a freezer but cannot afford the "AcuTemp" then the "ARB" brand would be a good choice.I'd guess the ARB is as good as you'll find to compare. There are a plethora of threads on Expedition Portal, but you're right, they aren't built nearly as tough as the AcuTemp. I only posted so those who wanted an option for something to add to their rig would be aware.
Has anyone replaced their batterys with the 22AH batterys ?
I wanted to get two freezer units too. Just couldn't come up with the cash at the time. Now you can have one as a freezer and the other as a fridge.I've got an Acutemp fridge as well! Ordered new 22ah batteries from Amamzon for about $87.00 (for two).
How did those batterys fit and work out for you? I just picked up a pair of them, work great but batterys are weak.
