5 Benefits of Portable Refrigerators for Outdoor Activities

There’s nothing like enjoying time outdoors, embracing life on the go, or spending time with loved ones in the open air. 

Delicious meals and ice-cold drinks go a long way toward keeping the party going! 

But a traditional cooler might not be enough — especially if you want to go on an extended camping trip. Or if you’re bringing food to a cookout that needs to stay at a specific temperature for food safety. 

That’s where a portable refrigerator comes in handy. 

With a portable refrigerator, you can keep things cool in the great outdoors — from frosty beverages to fresh meat and dairy.

1. Maintains Freshness of Food and Drinks

Looking forward to a delicious picnic when you reach your outdoor destination? 

No problem! 

Fill up your portable refrigerator with all your favourites before leaving the house. A portable refrigerator keeps your food and drinks cold and safe by storing them at colder temperatures than a cooler can provide — and for a longer time. 

With a quality portable fridge, you can increase the lifespan of your food and eat it whenever it suits you best.

To be safe, you need to store (and cook) foods like chicken, seafood, dairy, and eggs at the proper temperatures

A cooler full of melting ice just won’t cut it for food safety. The internal temperature won’t last. 

With the optional 298Wh plug-in battery, portable refrigerator/freezers like the EcoFlow GLACIER offer off-grid runtimes of up to 40 hours between charges. 

With the battery added you can even charge the GLACIER off-grid directly with a 220W Bifacial Portable Solar Panel. No additional balance of system components needed!

Need to keep stuff cold for longer?

Pair GLACIER with the RIVER 2 Pro Portable Power Station and keep it running for up to 3 days without recharging.

The GLACIER has freezing and cooling capabilities — and even an ice maker. 

Pack goodies like cheese, champagne, fresh meat and vegetables, or whatever suits your palate. 

When you reach your destination, they’ll be perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy (for days)!

2. Conveniently Bring Food and Drink On-the-Go

A portable refrigerator makes it easier to pack up and go conveniently. You don’t have to look for shore power with a fridge like the GLACIER when you add the optional 298wH plug-in battery.

Once you add the battery, you can connect GLACIER to A 220W Bifacial Portable Solar Panel for direct solar charging. 

Travelling or camping off-grid is much more enjoyable when you don’t have to sacrifice eating your favourite foods or enjoying an ice-cold beverage! 

Cold beverages aren’t just a luxury but can improve your performance and endurance for exercise and other outdoor activities.

3. Enjoy More Variety in Outdoor Meals

Tired of roasting hot dogs around the campfire? 

With a portable refrigerator, you can still have plenty of space and bring food to please every palate! 

Keep your steaks ice cold to grill at your destination, or enjoy fresh, crisp salads! 

Why not a full charcuterie spread with some frosty chardonnay? 

Whatever gets your taste buds tingling, you can bring along just about anything you can store in your home refrigerator.

4. Use In Multiple Scenarios

Just like the wide range of outdoor activities you might want to bring them on, portable refrigerators are versatile! 

Plug your fridge into a solar generator like the DELTA 2 w/220W solar panel for longer runtimes, additional solar charging capacity, and the ability to power other devices! 

The portable refrigerator and solar generator setup is ideal for RVing, road trips, camping, and tailgate parties

Your portable refrigerator will keep things cold anywhere the sun shines.

5. Save Money

While the initial cost of purchasing a portable refrigerator can be substantial, it can save you money in the long run. 

The cost of going out to eat for meal after meal can add up when you don’t have the means to keep your ingredients fresh. 

Plus, if you’re camping far from town, fuel costs make eating out even more expensive and inconvenient.

With a portable refrigerator, you can cook and prepare food for yourself. 

It makes going out to eat while on the road much less of a necessity, allowing you to save on your food expenses over time.

Not to mention having virtually limitless (and healthier) food options.
