I really like this iceco fridge/freezer. All works as promised and I am glad I bought it. The one thing is that the lid seems a little loose on the side where it opens! Perhaps this can be improved in the future. Also, for convenience, the info panel that lights up when turned on, should be at the side where the lid opens and not on the other side as it is difficult to see depending where the fridge/freezer is located in my camper van.
Otherwise, I like it a lot. Lots of room, fast decrease of temperature, and it seems not to use too much Kwt. electricity!
This thing is so good I need a bigger one
It works as advertised. I would buy it again if needed.
While I’m impressed with my new JP40, the purchasing process of ordering direct from IceCo was less than stellar. In fact, the request for this review is the first communication I’ve ever received from IceCo (and now I see it’s really from a survey firm, not IceCo). Never got a purchase confirmation, no shipping notice, and actually it shipped only after nearly 10 days of nothing, unsuccessful repeated attempts at contact, and finally my requesting the order be cancelled via PayPal. I’ve made many purchases on-line over many years and have never dealt with a company which has such disregard for communication with the customer. Part of the reason I purchased this unit is the quality compressor IceCo uses and the 5 year warranty, but considering IceCo’s apparent inability to communicate with their customers and their lack of accessibility I wonder if the warranty is worth the paper it’s written on. So nice unit (so far) but I don’t know if I could recommend buying from IceCo.
I took the JP40 on my first road trip for 10 days and I really love the product and it worked as advertised, but the the 3 star I gave was the 12v DC poor connection.
It kept coming undone or loose and I had to make sure It was connected every two hours. Any slight movement loosened the connection. There were several time it was loose and the cooler was turned off which made it very annoying.

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!
