WAECO CFX 40L
THE Waeco CFX features a Waeco compressor with VMSO (variable motor speed optimisation), meaning the compressor speed will vary depending on the load (amount of cooling) required. The fridge also features selectable low voltage battery protection and a ‘soft start’ to help lessen the initial electrical load.
The flush-mounted controls are easy to use and the sturdy, powder-coated handles can fold flat and double as tie-down points. There’s a USB port to plug in other devices for charging. 12-, 24- and 240-volt leads are supplied as standard, allowing the Waeco to run on all power supplies.
The easy-to-open removable lid has a recessed rubber seal to prevent damage, while a raised lip on the cabinet compresses into it to provide a good seal. The external polypropylene walls and lid keep the fridge looking good regardless of the tiny scraps and scratches it may get over time.
Internally, the evaporator plates are flush-mounted, and the basket has a vertical divider and a separate dairy section. There’s also a bung in the base of the fridge to empty spilt liquids and an LED light in the end wall.
IT NEEDS a lift-out basket for the dairy section, and the evaporator plate could extend to the top of the internal walls to spread the cold more evenly. The latter is a minor point and may not make much real-world difference to the cooling performance.
Easy-to-use flushmounted controls. Removable lid’s recessed seal is safe from damage. The lid can be easily and quickly removed. AC and DC inputs provide multiple power options.
