Koolatron P-20 Thermo – Electric 12-Volt 18 Quart Compact Cooler/Warmer: Planning any road trips for the summer? This is AWESOME! The Koolatron 12 Volt compact cooler was specially designed to fit in those tight spaces between and behind the seats of your car, van or truck. This cooling unit plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter, and can be set to keep your food up to 40 degree Fahrenheit colder than the outside temperature to cool your favorite drinks and snacks to 45 to 50 Fahrenheit degrees below the ambient temperature.
