I was about to post this on cali's ice chest thread but didn't want to alter the subject matter.

I haven't used an ice chest since buying the ARB 50qt about 8 years ago. I never had any problems with the ARB but about 6 months ago I decided to take advantage of it's value and sold it on eBay for $550+ shipping cost.

Before selling the ARB I bought an ICECO VL45 for about $450 that included a 5-year compressor warranty. It's hard to justify paying the same or more for a quality ice chest if an electric source is available. The VL45 has both Max/Eco modes and while the Max mode uses less energy than the ARB did, the Eco mode uses 3-4x less power than the ARB's single speed. I tested them side by side for a few days. The nice, thick cover for the VL45 was only another $65. If you buy a VL45 or the larger freezer/fridge VL65 you definitely need the padded cover as the all steel case gets hot in an enclosed vehicle/direct sun. The exterior size is very close to the ARB 50qt and someone made precise interior measurements and said it's about 49qt's.

Good find on the new 12v power based cooler. I went ahead and added it to the continuning list of 12v coolers in my cooler document.
