Reviews by Real Users of Koolatron KWC-4 Coca-Cola Personal 6-Can Mini Fridge
Great for Study Room
I really like iced apple juice, but the ice was melting before I ever finished my drink. I was going through apple juice like crazy, but never really drinking much of it. I bought this personal fridge to cut down on wasting apple juice (don’t like it all watered down from melted ice). It works so well, that I can fill a 12oz glass with juice, put in a few cubes of ice, and seven hours later, the ice has not melted. Think about it…seven hours! If I leave a glass of ice and juice out for 30 minutes, the ice has melted down to little bitty bits and the juice is too watery.
I used the “Mastercool MSC52224A Infrared Thermometer in Case with FREE MSC52220 Analog Thermometer” that I bought from Amazon to check the temperature performance. The manual for the mini fridge says that it is capable of cooling to 32 (deg F) below ambient. I checked it on a hot day, a warm day, a cool day, and several times between using the digital IR thermometer and it is consistently 32-45 degrees cooler inside the fridge than the outside temperature. Even on a 90 degree day the ice did not melt and I didn’t have to replace my drink. The inside temperature at the warmest spot was consistently hovering around 45 to 47 degrees (F). My drink was at around 36 to 38 degrees, depending on where I measured it.
On the days that were around 70 degrees, this fridge read temperatures close to freezing. In fact, I was amazed when I pulled out a frosty glass of apple juice. It happened only once, but still…worth mentioning.
I think the trick to getting this to work optimally is to provide several inches of space for the back end where it vents out the heat. I used the thermometer there as well- the vent on either side exhausts at about 90 degrees (F) but at a low volume so it is not very useful as a space heater.
The unit runs quiet- very quiet. It comes with both an AC adapter, and a DC lighter-socket adapter for the car. The power switch has three positions- Off (middle) to the right is 110AC, and to the left is 12VDC (car). There is a single green LED to indicate ON operation, there are two warm air exhausts on each side at the rear, and two cool air intakes- one at the back plate, and one on the top at the aft end. This is why ventilation and spacing is important- due to the proximity of the hot air exhaust and cool air intake- there needs to be room for the warm air to dissipate and not be drawn in by the cool air intake. The manual says 6 inches space all around, I’ve found that about half that works in my situation.
I have not tried a six-pack, or tried using it in a car. What I can say is that if you like to have a cold drink handy to sip on all day while you study, this unit is worth every penny. I have not had to waste a glass of juice because it was watered down since using this unit- for that, 5 stars easily.
Great Value, Works Very Well
For us, this fridge has been working very well. We have used it with only 2, max 3 cans at a time, so I cannot say what it will do stuffed with 6 cans, but for the small load, it is perfect. The cans stay very cold. The fan is a tad louder than I had hoped, but my son is able to sleep with this in his room and doesn’t mind. As pointed out by another reviewer, the handle is flimsy, but if you are aware of this ahead of time and open it gently, it’s OK, but a very small child might easily break it. Overall, I’m very pleased at the value for money!
Great Product – Perfect Gift!
I bought this fridge for my boss so she could have a cold diet coke at her fingertips and not have to run to the vending machine every time she wants one. She loves it. It is really small and doesn’t take up much space in her office. I definitely recommend this product.
Great Little Fridge
It’s great! Cute and useful. About the thing with the handle… I had a little trouble with it as well. You don’t pull the handle to open the door, you rotate/turn it, and it opens it. Hope this helps!
