Idea for a picnic: bag cooler or refrigerator in the car
When I come to the city for the long May holidays, everyone wants to go out into the countryside. Of course, we certainly take with us food and drinks. On the road, as a rule, it takes a lot of time — traffic jams, canceled trains, late buses … And so, when we finally get to the place, it turns out that the products are not so fresh.
A great way to solve this problem is to buy a cooler bag or a car cooler.
Cooler bag can be used almost anywhere: in nature, in the car or going shopping.
Convenience is available.
Pros: handles and wheels.
Larger models are equipped with retractable handles and wheels.
Ease: the weight of such bags is from 300 g to 1.5 kg. Most models can be folded, in the folded state, they take up very little space.
Also produced are bags, backpacks and bags with waterproof pockets for documents and special compartments for keys and bottles.
Cooler bags are made of nylon and polyester.
Their surface is easily cleaned, waterproof, painted with resistant paint.
The wall space is filled with dense foam, which gives strength and hardness to the structure.
Bags keep cold from 5 to 13 hours.
If less than 5 hours — most likely, poor quality materials were used.
Significantly increase the storage time of products in the cooler bag (up to several days!) Will help cold batteries — plastic bags or boxes-briquettes filled with heat-rich brine.
Before putting such batteries into the cooler bag, they should be kept in the freezer for some time.
Bags are from the smallest — a bag-toaster for 2 liters and up to bags of 40 liters. With this and for food you can go, and go on a picnic. There are models with a set of necessary for a picnic dishes and utensils
In the cooler bag you can put meat and fish (better in the package), as well as vegetables and fruits, drinks — in general, any products. And with any heat products will remain fresh, and drinks — cool.
For convenience, some models have special plastic containers.
Automobile refrigerators come in a wide variety of sizes — from 15-liter, in which 20 0.33 cans are placed, to 53-liter refrigerators, in which you can take a whole box of beer.
The main convenience of car refrigerators is that they can work from both a car cigarette lighter and a regular outlet through an AC / DC converter, which allows them to be used at home and in the office.
The refrigerator should not only work well, but also take up little space and not be too heavy.
Choose a refrigerator weighing from 3 to 11 kg.
Automobile refrigerators are made of high-strength plastic of different colors.
Plastic, I must say, really durable.
During one presentation, they asked to get up on a small refrigerator, and then jump a little at the largest person among the invited guests.
In recognition of the guest, he weighed about 100 kg.
And a fridge "for that" There was nothing.
A nice feature of car refrigerators is that they are very convenient to wash, you can simply use water or any non-aggressive plastic cleaning agent.
The main feature of automobile refrigerators is that they operate on the Peltier effect principle (thermoelectricity) and in their design there is neither a compressor nor freon.
The interwall space is filled with polyurethane foam with a thickness of 3 to 5 cm.
Insulation ensures long-term preservation of low temperature even after turning off the refrigeration appliance.
Almost all models are equipped with a built-in fan, which provides a fast and constant cooling effect. The system provides a decrease in temperature by 20-24ºС below the ambient temperature. And it does not require any special care.
Some models of car refrigerators not only cool, but also allow you to keep already cooked food hot.
For an additional fee, your refrigerator will get a liquid crystal display of temperature control.
If you use the adapter 230/12 V, then you get a refrigerator that can be used at home, in the office or at the cottage.
And with the help of a 12/24 V adapter, the refrigerator can be installed in a truck or on a boat.
Both horizontal and vertical positioning is allowed; There is a light indicator that indicates the mode of operation — cooling or heating.
