I have this and it works great. Unfortunately, I needed more than 299Wh even with solar to power my fridge for 2-3 days of camping. Other than that, works great to power my lights, charge my phone/tablets etc.

Btw, this item has NO RETURN!

No surprise there.

How long will it power your fridge, i would guess 6 hours?

Yeah, I tried the same thing. What I didn't realize is that camping sites are mostly shaded so you're not going to get much sun. Plus the effort to lug the power station and solar panels out to an open area and baby sit the thing is not a fun thing to do while camping.

So I ended not doing any recharging on the camping trip ...

Portable 12 volt fridges don't run continuously - they cycle on and off. My AllPowers branded 300Wh-ish portable power station could run my 12v fridge for about 25 hours while using half of its battery.

The AllPowers power station doesn't have a regulated 12v output (on the cigarette lighter port) so below 50% battery the voltage dropped to way below 12 volts and the portable fridge stopped running.

I believe the GoLabs power station has regulated 12v, so I'd guess it could run a fridge for at least 48 hours (assuming stopping at ~10% battery).

I am impressed, most 12 volt travel fridges use thermoelectric cooling which is not very efficient compared to the standard vapour compression. And many people leave them out in the sun. And if you put things in it that are not precooled that would be even more power.
25 hours on half a 300Wh battery is impressive!

The fridge doesnt run 24/7. It turns off when it reaches a set temp and turns on when its -3 or more from the set temp. Overall, I'd say about 1.5 days.

Btw, I precooled the fridge the night before prior to my trip + all of its contents.

I get that but as i mentioned most run on thermoelectric coolers which are not the most efficient and common outdoor or vehicle storage is not a nice room temperature leading to more juice needed.
I would be interested to know what model you have and how long it runs on what size battery, if it does this well i would be interested in buying one.

What I have is a brand called BougeRV. I have the 53 qt it is pretty big. There are 30 qt and 25 qt i think.
The more efficient fridge are gonna cost a lot more. Brands are ARB and Dometic.

The brand I got is called "F40C4TMP" ... Yeah, kind of a weird name but it works great. It has a compressor instead of those cheapo thermoelectric coolers. In testing, I've run mine for weeks on AC power.

I got the 23 quart sized one (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08GCFLDMP/). Coincidentally, the 23 quart BougeRV branded 12v compressor fridge seems to be physically the same as mine, except that it comes in a different colour.

On AC, my watt-meter measured ~ 220 Wh used in a 24 hour period.

Thanks, i will check i out.
That brand name may be pragmatic (40º Fahrenheit or 4º Celsius is fridge temperature) but they could have done better on that one Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes
