Totalcool only uses a maximum of 1.8 amps (on boost speed)
This equals hours of cooling comfort – even without your vehicle running
You will generally find ‘low’ fan speed (0.3 amps) more than adequate for sleeping.
For extended periods of cooling, use of a deep cycle battery or battery power pack is recommended.
The Totalcool 3000 features new Low Battery Protection to shut the cooler off if battery voltage falls below 11.2V
– LOW SPEED – 157 Hours*
– BOOST SPEED – 59 hours*
*Test results using Totalcool with a Transion 100Ah deep cycle battery pack until battery power was drained to 11.2 volts.
A deep cycle battery can supply power for a much longer period of time, and can be drained to a lower voltage than a standard car ‘starting’ battery, which has a primary purpose to deliver short, high energy bursts of current for vehicle starting.
Most caravans, 4WD’s and boats are fitted with secondary ‘deep cycle’ battery systems, sometimes with larger 100 amp hour batteries to provide extended power supply for appliances such as fridges and cooler’s etc.
The following results were achieved using a standard 12volt 60ah Lead acid car battery*, with Totalcool running until battery voltage was reduced to 11.2 volts – this ensures reliable vehicle startup!
– LOW SPEED – 42 hours
– BOOST SPEED – 10 hours
*Battery power draw examples were recorded using a fully charged Lion 22F-520 (12volt 60 Amp hour) car battery, running the Totalcool 3000 constantly until battery voltage fell to 11.2 volts (battery was not connected to car at time). Individual results may vary on depending on battery specification
