Fantastic EcoFlow GLACIER Portable Refrigerator Rids Your Life of the Wet Icy Mess

We’ve all been there. You head out to your picnic or campground with everything covered with ice in your cooler. When you get there, everything is floating in icy cold water. End that silliness with the EcoFlow Glacier. It’s a portable refrigerator — a portable freezer — and a portable icemaker — all without the melting ice cube mess.

The 37-liter interior capacity can be used as a one-temperature refrigerator or freezer, from -13°F to 50°F. Or, the removable (reusable) divider can be unclipped from the lid and inserted into the storage area to create two separate compartments. You can then set a separate temperature for each zone. Make one a freezer compartment and the other a refrigerator — or maybe set one as a cold refrigerator for canned soft drinks at 44°F, while the other section might be set at 37°F to keep your vegetables fresh as long as possible without freezing.

The Glacier will fit wherever most full-size ice chests fit. It measures 31" by 15" by 18". Empty, it weighs 50 pounds. The 38-liter capacity means it can hold 60 cans of beer or pop.

Another nice little touch is that there are a couple of LED lights on either side of the cooler compartments so you can see what you’re grabbing when you open the lid after dark.

Unique among portable freezers is the capability to make ice cubes. And it makes them quick. I was getting set after set of 18 bullet-shaped ice cubes every 12 to 13 minutes.

The Glacier runs on any one of four power sources. It comes with a 110v adapter and cord for use where power is available. It also comes with a 12v cord and plug that works in your car, truck, boat, or RV.
