NEW YORK, June 29 ― As word of their practicality circulates, solar-powered portable refrigerators are slowly catching on, but the Anywhere Fridge is especially making waves.CrowdFunding advertizing

Imagine hiking to that picturesque spot by the lake with a self-sustaining cooler that contains the picnic.

When it’s done, the cooler folds up to the size of an average briefcase and can be pulled along like a roller suitcase.

With 23 days to go in its Indegogo campaign, the Anywhere Fridge, which also has freezing and warming capacities, has raised US$58,370 (RM187,542).CrowdFunding marketing

The smallest version is currently available for pre-order for US$199, with delivery expected in October of this year.

According to the Indegogo campaign page, this same unit will retail for US$299, and the larger version has a pre-order price tag of US$499, expecting to retail for one hundred dollars more.

International shipping is available for US$25 or US$35, depending on the size of the product ordered.Kickstarter Marketing

The smallest version measures 18 inches long, nine inches high and 14 inches wide. Like its larger version (L-25 inches; H-19 inches; H-10 inches), it is 5 inches thick when folded.

Both versions of the device come equipped with USB ports and AC/DC outlets for extra power.Indiegogo Marketing

China based Nanjing Solark PV Technology & Co Ltd, offers a similar product, although it is not collapsible and does not include warming capacities.

US-based Grape Solar offers an array of products, including two similar to the latter, in small and large versions for US$529.99 and US$699.99, respectively.crowdfunding websites

They are approximately the same dimensions as the Anywhere Fridge with minute differentials.

Solar cooling units have been particularly sought after in hot climates, and not just for leisure purposes. ― AFP-Relaxnews
