A portable freezer is a device that is used to chill or freeze items while away from home. It is considerably smaller than a regular commercial or residential sized freezer, and its small size makes it easy to carry. Portable freezers are usually similar in size as a cooler, and they also look similar in shape and overall appearance.

Like a cooler, a portable freezer keeps items cool. It can work anywhere. Not only does the small freezer keep items cool, but it also freezes items. And it keeps frozen food at the perfect temperature. Some portable freezers can even make ice to serve at outdoor parties and other activities.

The features of a portable freezer vary depending on the model, price and manufacturer. Some freezers make ice, some have digital controls and some even have extra features. One of the most popular extra features on a portable freezer is a digital thermostat. While a digital thermostat may be a popular type of control on a compact freezer, it is not the most useful feature that is offered by a portable freezer.

Push button freezing is a fast freezing option that is available on some types of portable freezers. With a simple push of a button a user can instantly freeze any item in the freezer. It also keeps the temperature in the portable freezer appropriate for frozen foods. This feature is ideal for traveling, camping, boating, hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities.

Most portable freezers have both AC and DC plugs for power. This means that some portable freezers can be powered through the use of a cigarette lighter, and the most advanced of these portable freezers offer an additional feature, automatic shut off. The automatic shut-off feature is great when a person is away from home. It cuts of the power to the freezer before a vehicle’s battery power is drained. This feature saves freezer owners trouble, and it prevents people from being stranded while camping or during another outdoor activity.

Portable freezers are convenient and easy to use. They offer the comforts of a refrigerator and a freezer while away from home. Some models can even be plugged in overnight to be charged. After the freezer is charged overnight it will have enough power to keep its contents frozen for a large part of the day. Freezers that are charged overnight are ideal for rafting, boating, camping trips and other outdoor excursions.
