Probably a really small one that will hold maybe 12 cans (of beer).

2.7 cu ft. In i think 2013 when i got it it was $80

Rated 237kwh/yr = 650w a day which is acurate.

Even if it were double consumption of a 12v its still wayyy cheaper to get an extra 100w panel. Hell, you can get used 250w panels for $50 nowadays.

Thats probably been true for at least 10 years now.

I prefer these numbers! Lol. In your pic above, it's showing 340wh, what's that demonstrating? I thought that's what your fridge used in a 24hr period.

Thats what had gone into the batteries so far. Im at .85kwh with 14.6v reached at >1A as the solar day is wrapping up. I.e. battery fully charged. Had a week of pop up storms, plus 4hrs of TV.

usage depends like any fridge; heat, how much mass inside, venting, how much its opened. Here lately it does seem to use more than it used to. It used to never go above .6 or so in summer. Now i see .9kw on hot days. I might need to blow out compressor area or something. Ive had it for a pretty decent amount of years now.
