will a bottle of Moet stand up in this?
A 750ml Moet is around 32 cm tall. This product has an internal height of 35.2cm, so it should just fit. With the width and depth you can just about fit a 6-pack of Moet 750ml's in this one, and we have bigger models too if you need it.

Can this maintain some charge and keep cooling for a bit once it is disconnected from the power supply?
This doesn't have that functions, but it could be connected to a portable charger when on the move.

Does it keep things cool when unplugged? Or only works when kept connected to a power source
Yes but only as much as a regular chilly bin does, it needs to be plugged in to be actively cooling.

Cooler for van


Hall Auckland

Very happy is just as advertised quite economical on power works as should

Paully Napier
Car fridge

The Domestic cooler is fabulous. Keeps food and drinks cold, operates off the car connection in the boot and plugs into the inverter and battery as well as regular power. We can camp in power sites or off grid without any concerns of food spoiling.

Helen Leigh
Very happy

Very happy with product and all aspects of order/delivery process.

Jimjam New Zealand
Cooler Warmer

Great product for travel or camping as AC and 12v. It keeps foods chilled whilst travelling with optional temperatures; I did not use the warmer. This is my second similar product however the Dometic as that much more sophisticated technically.

Issy Kapiti
Power chilly bin/fridge!

Awesome! Great unit, cools fast, good size for carrying too and kept everything cold for some time after being switched off.

Such a beauty

Works very well. Cools really fast. We had a smaller one before for 7 years, this one works better. Great purchase.

Ebbie Auckland
Van Fridge

Goes well in the Campervan hooked up to the main battery. The Amp cut out is great. Will hook up solar in weeks to come.
