It is a cooling solution for camper-RV, caravan, tent, boat, car, or anywhere with 12 Volt power supply.
The following results were achieved using a standard 12 volt 60ah lead acid car battery*, withTranscool running until battery voltage was reduced to 12 volts - this ensures reliable vehicle startup.
Transcool says low fan speed is generally more than adequate for sleeping.
Low Speed - 42 hours.
Medium Speed - 17 hours.
High Speed - 10 hours.
For extended periods of cooling, use of a deep cycle battery or battery power pack, such as the Waeco Cool Power 36 is recommended.
