    VERY disappointing performance. Yes, it's a little loud (which isn't too bad, with the car stereo on, and possibly the windows down), but would be VERY annoying in a hotel room. However, for me, it is the cooling performance that forced me to return it. I just came back from a trip to Phoenix. Driving around all day, with the temperature in the car around 75 most of the day, the temp inside the cooler never dipped below 63-65. Any food that REQUIRES refrigeration, will spoil fairly quickly. Even when the temp dropped to 48 in the evening, the temp inside the cooler only dropped to around 40 (no danger of freezing, like the other commenter mentioned, lol). I was using it to keep cooked fresh food from spoiling (it failed) ... but who would want bottled water, soda or beer that was 65 degrees, lol?

    We used this cooler over 3,000 miles of vacation driving this summer. It is the perfect size to fit between our two kids in the back seat and provided a convenient portable fridge for cheese snacks, sodas, milk and lunch meat. There is no thermostat on this cooler so things can freeze if the surrounding temperature is below about 75 degrees F but the advantage of not having to hunt for ice in the middle of nowhere and not having to deal with soggy contents more than makes up for this. We used the cooler inside hotel rooms and found the fan noise unnoticeable after about an hour. I actually slept better with the cooler in the room because the white noise from the cooler blocked out other outside noise. We have been using thermoelctric coolers for 5+ years and will never go back to ice for road trips.

    Too noisy. Had to return it. We opened two other units, and they were just as noisy. It's a perfect size, and I think Coleman needs to do some quality control to correct the noise level. There is no way a person could sleep in a motel room with it. The high level of noise it emits would also be very distracting in a vehicle. If Coleman ever corrects the noise problem, I would love to own and use one of these units.

    I was buying this to replace my old 12v cooler. It is extremely loud and doesn't cool enough. I couldn't even leave it plugged in all day b/c of the noise. I am a construction truck driver that runs is straight 5 days a week. My Black and Decker lasted me over a year and was quiter along with keeping the drinks a lot colder. Their are better options out there than this. Sorry Coleman, but you can do better.

    Wish I would have read the reviews before I bought the cooler. They are so noisy, you can't stand them. Own one of their larger ones, & it is so much quieter. The size of this one is great, but that is about all.

    I bought this cooler to use in my semi. It works great for keeping my drinks and meat snacks cold, while taking up little room. My ice cooled one could only carry about 2/3 as much, while taking up more room. It is a bit noisey, but in my truck, I can hardly hear it, so it doesn't bother me. In the house, while pre-cooling, it is a little loud, but it works better than the other brand, which is only slightly quieter. Highly recommended.

    We love our new electric cooler. We purchased especially for a vacation to travel in the car with us. I recommend plugging the cooler in several hours before you depart for travel use if you want the cooler to be chilled for your use. We plugged ours in the morning of our trip and it was chilled well before we needed to use it. There is a fan noise while it runs, but we did not find it to be too loud as other reviews I have read. It was more like a small travel fan noise when running. We could hear the radio over the fan easily while in the car. The cooler is Also surprisingly light in weight even when fully stocked with items, as it requires no ice. We did add a few freezer packs to keep in the cooler just for our interest. The cooler will also run on a low voltage for a few hours without draining the battery when the car is turned off if you choose to keep it plugged in while the car is turned off. I believe the owners manual states up to 3-4 hours. The AC Adapter does not come with this cooler- must purchase separately if you want to plug it in your house or hotel, etc.

    This was extremely noisy. There is no way you could take a trip with this noisy thing plugged into your vehicle. The loud humming and small size made it a horrible purchase. We returned this and purchased an ice blanket for $13 that worked 100 times better than this.

    Product was received with damage to the top right corner of the cooler, poor shipping, handling, or packaging caused this damage. Overall the product performs well but can drain a car battery if left plugged in. Good for road trips and vacations.

    The fan on this cooler has a significant whine; it is the same sound as a handheld vacuum, about half as loud - too noisy for use on a long trip in an auto. The larger 40-Quart version is much quieter, and cools the interior significantly faster. The power cord is too short to plug into a receptacle in the front and place the cooler on the back seat of a small sedan. Using the cooler on the front seat or front passenger side floor is not an option for us. Overall, surprisingly poor design from a good company, and not something we would recommend.

    I have it for about 2 weeks already. I installed it behind the passenger sit in my Nissan NV200 (Compact Cargo Van). Fits perfect! Takes very little space in the car but have enough space incide for my 32 oz' Travel Mug + 2 Red Bulls + 6 Bottles of water & Ican even add a sandwich too. It keeps my stuff cold all day even that my car is not on all day. So it's enough for me and my coworker for all day. No more spending money for drinks at Gas Station. For $50 it's the best deal. BTW on Target, Amazon, Colman & eBay it's more expensive.

    I bought this model due to being smaller, but should have bought the 40qt cooler. I use them weekly being a truck driver. I have had 2 of the coleman 40qt coolers that worked great for about 3 years each. This one is noisier and will not pre-cool with the coleman power adapter due to being a higher amp unit, I have to put ice packs in it to keep temp below 60 and it will kill the batteries if you leave it plugged in over night without idleing the truck. Have tried other brands but they are no better than this one.
