First let me say I'm overall pretty happy with my minifridge. I bought this to use on a weekend long camping trip to keep my beer cold and a few steaks as well. It really does fit 48 cans if you stack them the right way. It also fits a case and a half (36) of cans, 2 hoagies, and 2 steaks at the same time plus ice, with minimal squishing. It did not get cold very quickly at all. I had it plugged in to my cigarette adapter in my car for 30 minutes without opening it, and it still was barely cooler than the outside temperature. I couldn't wait for it to get cold, so I put a few ice packs in the bottom, and threw some ice in it as well. I'm not sure if it is designed to be water safe, but the ice melted and pooled in the bottom, but was not covering the fan. I think even though the internal fan may have gotten wet, it still worked perfectly. The ice packs in the bottom are the way to go with this cooler. It gets it very cold very quick, and once it is cold it seems to stay cold for hours. I stocked mine with ice pcaks and cold cans, and left it plugged in basically all day, every 3 hours or so coming back to start my car and let it run so it did not wear out the alternator or battery. Overnight I unplugged it, and kept the door closed. When I woke up in the morning everything was still cool, not cold, but cool. Turning it back on everything was cold again within an hour. Good for beer, not so great for food unless it is ICE cold. The other thing I didn't like was that the "latch" is really a plastic slide piece that accidentally snapped off pretty easily, but I was able to snap it back on easily as well. I would have liked a little bit better of a latch because it doesn't look very durable. The fridge works prettty good, it served its function (kept my beer and food cold) with minimal issues. Next time I'll bring more ice packs.
