Ok, when I received my JP40 in the mail my first thought was, "crap, that's too small." My mind was still factoring in space for ice, and "I don't need ice anymore!" I reminded myself.
This is why I sold my Yeti Roadie 20 because half the stuff was taken up by, and also ruined by, melting ice or ice packs! My new JP40 holds more than my Yeti Roadie 20. I think it could hold a week or more of food for two, which is perfect.
Another perfect thing, it holds the temperature +/- 4 degrees. That's more than I can say for my upright, energy-efficient 3 cubic foot mini-fridge. I often open that and experience mugginess with suspiciously cool food. I was able to fit all of my food and drinks from the mini-fridge into my cooler with a little space to spare. I'm selling the mini-fridge now too. I don't need redundancies.
Can't wait to take the JP40 on trips! I've already tested it with the Jackery 240. She sips 1w while in Eco mode, and about 48 when the compressor kicks in for a few minutes. I recorded 24 hours + on a full charge without solar input. I think I'm golden

First off the JP40 came in record time. Less than a week and boxed nicely. Putting the handles on was a snap as the tool was supplied. It is working flawlessly and very quite. Once it reaches the temp I set it at, the compressor hardly came on. Or, I didn't hear it come on. The included cover is a cool item as well.
I took it camping with a Jackery portable power station and a small solar panel. 4 days with refrigerated food were amazing. As some of the other campers were pulling waterlogged items from their ice chests to toss out and had to drive off to get fresh food and more ice I was inwardly smiling.
My JP40 was everything I needed. My chocolate bar was perfection.
I read a book and quietly enjoyed nature while they were gone.
When I got home putting items back in the refrigerator was so cleanly done. Loved that as well.

Item was packaged well. Plugged it in after letting it sit for 24 hours. Everything worked fine, cooled down fast and it's quiet. I love it. I'd purchase from ICECO again and highly recommend ICECO products.

I have been researching and looking for a durable and practical 12V refrigerator with a good price and found ICECO to be the perfect match of our family need, I called their US support before made purchase, they explained different models to me and I decided JP50 is what we are looking for, while I also purchased JP40 for my dad.
This is a nicely designed and constructed fridge. It came with an AC cord, a DC cord, and a DC extension cord. The spring loaded carrying handles came disassembled but were easy to install. It also came with an insulated cover that fits perfectly.
I purposely waited to write this review until after I've had a chance to give this fridge a through test and I couldn't be happier. Messing with ice chests was a huge pain and is now a thing of the past!
