Introducing the VL Pro Series
New to ICECO's powerhouse 12V portable fridge/freezer lineup is the VL Pro series. It comes in a few different configurations and models which consist of single and dual zone units. What is the difference between single and dual zone units? Well let me explain. A single zone unit is a unit that can be set to a single temperature at once. For example, a single zone unit can have the temperature set as a refrigerator or a freezer for the whole unit. On the other hand, a dual zone unit can split the temperature. For example, The VL75ProD and the VL90ProD can have either side of the unit set to refrigerator temperature and the opposite zone set to freezing temperatures. You can also configure the unit to have both zones set to freezing temperatures or refrigerator temperatures. You can also select to turn off one of the zones to save power if you do not need all the available space of the dual zone units.
Single or Dual Zone Feature
The single zone units consist of the VL45ProS and the VL60ProS. Having a portable fridge/freezer in my kit of gear is essential to me and can be to many others. I use the ICECO VL45ProS daily. Whether I’m out on the trail with local friends and family or during my everyday work commute. Having a fridge/freezer like the VL Pro Series allows one to be prepared for the unexpected. I can always carry water and other essentials that need to be cool in my vehicle and have access to them at an arm’s reach. It has also played a big role in family road trips, grocery store runs, and all-day sporting events. Gone are the days where you have to deal with ice and soggy food or a cooler full of melted ice.
ICECO lineup and the VL Pro Series are priced right below the competitors and use quality and well-known class winning SECOP compressors which are used in high-end vehicles. ICECO is the definition of quality at a great price!
