This portable car fridge can go from 68 to 32 degrees in just 15 minutes

With summer right around the corner, you likely have a few road trips on the horizon. Whether you’re driving from coast to coast or just hitting the highway for a few hours en route to the beach, there are a few items that you should have packed to make your summer getaway a breeze, not a bother. One that Amazon shoppers love is the Vevor Car Refrigerator. It'll keep all your favorite snacks and drinks at their ideal temperature, so you don't have to keep pulling over at rest stops (except for that one micro-bladdered friend who always needs the potty).

No more stopping for ice on the way to the tailgate party! You're welcome.

The portable fridge holds up to 20 liters of food and beverages at a time, making it the perfect size to store essentials for a long drive, a picnic, a camping trip or whatever. It boasts an easy-to-use Electronic Temperature Control Panel that will tell you the internal temp, which you can easily adjust with just the touch of a button. It works so quickly it can go from 68 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit in just 15 minutes. The fridge also comes with a built-in USB port so you can charge your phone simultaneously.

Along with a durable and corrosion-proof exterior, the car cooler also features fluoride-free insulation and a sealing ring that keeps the cold air trapped inside. It even comes equipped with a radiator for heat dissipation. Perhaps best of all, it comes with two power cords. One is a 12/24 V DC cable that connects to car battery so you can use it on the go; the other is a 110–240V AC power input that can be used indoors, so you can use it at home when you need additional fridge space for parties and events.

“I liked the fact that is both AC- and DC-powered. Took on trip to Arizona and it maintained temperature all during the hot weather. Also use at home to cool drinks quickly. Excellent value for the money,” raved one cool customer.

And it's not just great for vacays, either. People with long commutes or who work from the car say it’s great for everyday use too. “I drive a day cad truck. This thing is great to keep my lunch and drinks in. I keep lunch meat, peanut butter and jelly, yogurt — you name it. Saved me many times being stuck in traffic with a highway closure. Stays very, very cold with no problem,” wrote this good buddy.

Other shoppers say it’s perfect for keeping your medications at their necessary temperature while traveling. “Took this fridge on a 14-day trip to keep my insulin cold. It performed well in the truck using the USB cord and then in the hotel using the regular power cord,” said one five-star reviewer.

No matter what you need to keep cold, you’ll definitely want to have one of these babies on hand before you hit the road this summer.
