Cools instantly with very low power consumption.
We have a cabin in holopaw florida totaly off grid and this unit has saved the day. 3 amps dc on low setting and 5. It gets cold super fast and will freeze meat as well as keep milk and eggs cold at the same time. Glad i went with this bigger unit as it holds just enough for what i need. Ps digital readout on the side isn’t to accurate so just set low point disconnect on 10. 0 volts mine meter is off a bit but can’t justify sending it back for this minor reason as it works perfectly other wize.
Purchased this for the pass-through storage in our 5th wheel trailer, since we always run out of ice on summer trips to the lake. While this thing is pricey, it is exceptional in every way. It’s extremely sturdy, efficient, and even looks good. In no time, i was completely impressed with how much i could fit in the unit, and even more impressed with how quickly it cools from room temperature to 0 fahrenheit or lower.It has also worked flawlessly on 12v dc, while we’re on the road.
We tried it in the car and in the house. Would be nice if it came with a longer cord.
Great unit, holds up well over time.
We travel south in the winter and this keeps things frozen for days on end.

Can’t say enough great things about this fridge.
To early to tell bought it for my rv ask me in 6 months.
It has performed well on both a/c and d/c. It holds the cold super well after unplugged even after a week. I will repost as time goes by as to if it keeps up the great job it’s doing right now. It goes on the boat this season. So far i am only using it as a freezer. I am impressed with how little it runs and it gets well below 0 degrees f. Weight is good/ light and capacity is very nice.
We’ve had this a couple of days and are pleased. I can’t say anything about service issues or how long it lasts. What i can say is, it’s quiet and it performs. For about 15 years, but the engel 84 qt. Currently costs over twice as much, and is heavier. The edgestar 80 uses more dc amps (5. However, we plan to use this mainly in the home.
The unit works very well get cold quick, doesn’t draw excessive power, my only complaint is the flimsy handles the second time my wife and i picked the unit up (both times empty) her handle popped out of the base on one side causing the unit to twist to the side, this totally dislodged my handle from the frame and it dropped to the floor, thank god it was on heavy carpeting and missed both our feet. I was left standing there with the ‘d’ handle in my hand.

Despite the fact that the first one i ordered broke two weeks into operation, i have to say i love this edgestar, and am pleased to give it another chance. This is due, in large part, to the excellent customer service i received from compact appliance when the first unit failed. I don’t know why the first one stopped running (sometimes, you get a lemon that gets by quality control), but compact appliance ignored the fact that the standard 30 days to return had already passed (by one or two days, due to the late start of my camping trip), and went above and beyond to exchange it for another model. They even paid the return postage.I love a business that stands by their product. As for the unit, the 80 qt is a nice size for week-long camping trips, it operates well with my little 200 w photo voltaic system, it doesn’t take up much space in my little camping trailer (converted from a 16′ cargo trailer), it is very quiet when in operation (a nice thing in a small camper). I have the replacement up and running now on house current as it will be my ‘cooler’ for a holiday party i am having. Then it will go into the pantry to hold fruits and vegetables at their ideal temperature for the winter (freeing up my refrigerator for other things). When it is not doing that, it will be with me on camping trips and be powered by a solar system. If i have any trouble with it from here on, you can be sure i will report it.
I have had this for 5 years and bang it around in the back of my 4×4 camping all the time. No problems and keeps stuff frozen. Runs overnight easily without draining my battery and i can run it almost indefinitely on a 100 watt solar cell.
I have had mine now going on seven years in the lower compartment of my motorhome and have nothing but great accolades for this unit. It finally quit and now i am looking for a repairman.
Really quite when it’s running and is insulated very well. Doesn’t use much power either. I have it in my small cabin running off of 200 watts of solar that powers the whole cabin. It was expensive but worth every penny since i don’t need to keep all my food in a cooler full of ice anymore.
For this first time in 17 years i can keep food frozen in the summer much better then a cooler. So nice to have the option of battery or power. In the winter we plan to use it as a fridge.

Provides cold drinks in our vfd rescue truck. Runs great off of shore line and genset.
Works like a charm, cools pretty fast, not too heavy to move in and out of vehicle (when empty) – one man can lift and move it. Seems very quiet and just works.
