Portable top-opening 12/24V DC - 110V/120V AC fridge-freezer


When your overnight trips start turning into overland excursions, you need gear that matches your thirst for adventure. The MT35 is built to keep your grub fresh or frozen when you head off the grid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MT35F-U1 is our second Engel fridge The first one is a MT45F-U1 we bought for our '73 VW Westfalia Camper almost a year ago. It fits perfectly between the kitchen block and the rear facing seat. We took the MT45F-U1 on a couple of trips and are very happy with it. It runs off of a second (deep cycle) battery. Prior to the Engel, we had a thermo-electric cooler, which managed to run down the battery pretty quickly. With the Engel I noticed that it only kicks in so and so often and then only runs for a minute or two. It keeps things nice and cool - no more soggy sandwiches floating on melted ice. Now this new for us MT35F-U1 is for our off-roading adventures in our Toyota FJ Cruiser 4x4. It also runs off of a second (deep cycle) battery. We just returned from a 4-day off-roading trip to Death Valley. This Engel is mounted on top of a metal drawer box in the back of the FJ Cruiser and tied down with cam buckles. For that, I turned the carrying handles upside down so as to accommodate the slightly curved rear hatch door and limited space in the trunk. Every inch counts. The Engel took quite a beating on the Death Valley off-road trails (many with badly eroded wash-board surfaces), but as far as we can tell it held up very well. We only have it for some two weeks now, but so far, so good. We chose the MT35F-U1 because it is only 16in high. This is very important to us, because - although it's mounted on top of the metal box which reduces the available head room - it allows us to open the lid enough to check for the contents inside and also load/remove items from the fridge without having to slide it out or worse, lift it out of the car. Although sliders are available, I'm trying to avoid them as they are very heavy and add unnecessary weight to an already heavy 4x4 vehicle. Detlef & Ursula Mews Pleasanton California

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for solar panel use This was my first Engel, of about 20 years ago, and now I also have the 43-Qt version. When island camping I ran this one off a single 140 watt solar panel set up I have and a large deep-cycle boat battery. I kept it at about 35 degrees and it was still running after 3 full days or rain, with no solar recharge. No more ice runs to the dock for me or any temperature worries. I later upgraded to the 43 Qt model for home use and as a spare because it pulled the same low amp draw and amp draw is important. I sure do like that wire basket coming out when toting that thing up and back from the tent. The picture is of my 43-Qt doing home duty. The smaller Engel goes with me when I go to the big city and hit the larger grocery centers, gets those frozen specials home still frozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance We bought it in Feb 2013. We use it in a pop up camper mostly in the south western desert. It has stood up to horrible wash board roads never failing. Soon after we bought it we tested it in 110 degree heat . Turned it on at noon in a closed camper outside temp 110*.Took 30 minutes to cool to 39* and held that temp for the week we were there. We discovered it will keep ice cubes for up to 7 days. We place a 1 quart container of cubes in the bottom on fridge setting. Set temp to 38*. Unlike a front opening fridge the cold does not "fall-out" when door is opened.
