This cooler is sure a big improvement over the non-powered coolers we used to have to use to transport food for camping trips (the RV's fridge being basically unusable in transit). It reaches fridge temperature in about 2 hours (faster than the manual claims), and holds the temperature well. Capacity is about the same as our RV fridge, so this cooler--which we keep on while camping, not just while getting there--doubles the amount of food we can store.
The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that during a recent camping trip (ambient temp was about 70), the cooler reached 50 degrees. Turns out the reason was ice that had formed at the bottom of the interior of the cooling module. I have no idea why ice formed there, as conditions were not especially humid.
I still like this cooler, and will keep an eye on that problem in future outings. Once that problem (not referred to in the manual) is solved. I'll be totally happy with the cooler.
