You can also buy a machine that makes it if you're not a poor.

Its a bit expensive, but this is actually a pretty awesome machine since its the only consumer grade nugget ice maker. Other than that guy you're looking at like a few thousand dollars on a commercial Hoshizaki machine or something.

I am a r/VanDwellers and live from a van that has a fridge (cooler-shaped, 12v/24v/120v Dometic 65-quart fridge/freezer combo), a little Camco camp toilet, pressurized hot water tank for dishes and bathing,a Camp Chef dual-burner propane stove with oven that uses Coleman tanks or a white tank, and a modest ($1,300) solar setup...

I've lived completely off grid and mobile since August 20 17 until this past Winter because cold and snow!

With a double bed across the back with regular linens, storage for clothes and tools and cooking, power outlets, I have all the comforts of home.

Not counting the van, my complete setup was about $3,500.

The Prairie Schooner can be disassembled in a day and all the components can be applied to a cabin - as soon as I get some land (LOL!) for said cabin - leaving a regular cargo van for work or resale.

u/delusions- · 13 pointsr/cringepics

It's a mini-fridge but yes.

Big enough for a can of soda, OR a stack of condoms.

u/PotentiallyMike · 12 pointsr/HydroHomies

I believe there are crazy expensive ice makers out there that claim to make the same kind of delicious nugget ice that Chic-Fil-A does.

u/dalek_999 · 12 pointsr/mealprep

Freezer. We bought a small freezer like this and it can fit roughly 40 meals in it.

u/PalpatineWasFramed · 8 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

I can say that using those ball ice makers with boiling water does make them less cloudy but not perfectly clear. There are devices you can buy which do make clear ice but they can be kinda spendy.

u/TinyMetalTube · 6 pointsr/vandwellers

Spend the bucks on an actual compressor refrigerator when you can, or you will end up spending that much on ice.

u/valar_k · 6 pointsr/HydroHomies

Like many of my brothers in this sub, I'm always thirsty and always want water. In particular, I want it ice cold and in massive quantities. A while ago, I got this refillable 100z "cup":

Pic with pint glass for size comparison

I lived near a gas station with really well filtered water that let me fill it up for free, so I was set. Unfortunately, after moving, all the places near me want like $1 for an ice water refill in that thing. Fuck that. Here's an overview of all the components needed.

Pitcher - I use this Brita pitcher. In the past I used the bigger one here, but it honestly sucks to fill up because it's heavy and unwieldy, whereas the pitcher form factor is really easy to just refill right after you use. It also pours quite a bit slower. Apparently my new place does some filtration of water before it comes out of the sink, so I might switch to this guy for instant filtration. Also make sure to change that damn filter often enough. Having charcoal leech into everything when it breaks down from too much use won't hurt you but it definitely looks bad and takes some time to clean out.

Giant Cup - Valero Corner Stores sell this, though the 64oz and 52oz variants are more common. Plenty of other gas stations sell identical 100oz cups with their branding, but you just have to find one. If you don't mind paying the pretty steep cost (~$20) some people sell them on Amazon, like this one. I really really wish Yeti or some other company made a 100oz cup made for drinking that insulates as well as theirs do, but I haven't found one.

Reusable Straw - The big cup comes with a plastic reusable straw which you can see in the pictures of the one I linked to, but I don't like it. The ridged structure that makes it easily bendable also causes drag on the water and makes it harder to drink. So what I use are these. They are just the right size. They get a bit off smelling after a while (a month or two), and there's a brush included to clean them, but I can never really get them cleaned well, so I honestly just toss them and use another. It's $8 for 5, so you're looking at maybe $15 or so a year in straw costs. I had also looked at some of those reusable metal straws but then I realized how bad it would suck to pick up the cup too quickly and bash my teeth out with the inertia of a full 100oz cup.

Ice - Here's the the tricky one. This is basically why I filled it up at the gas station in the past. I'm really picky about ice and will only use clear "restaurant quality" ice. The kind of ice made in most freezer ice makers is cloudy because of air bubbles in the water, meaning that it also picks up any off smells in the freezer, melts far too quickly, is weirdly soft, etc. If you do it right, you can get pretty clear ice from ice trays, but if you're doing that for a cup that big, it's gonna take a lot of time. Here is a pic of the ice maker I bought to solve this problem (I bought it here). It does a really good job making clear, good tasting ice. I fill it up with a full load of water from the pitcher and usually within 90-120 minutes, it's full of clear square ice. Here is a pic of some extra ice I stash in the freezer from it. I'll edit this with a pic of some fresh super clear ice in a bit, I don't have any on hand right now. Overall, I like the ice machine, though I will say that it costs quite a bit to run (it runs at around 150W, spiking to 190W) and should be wiped down every week or two. It might just be easier to grab some of the 10 or 20lb bags of ice from the gas station or grocery story and use that. It is nice to be able to make it on demand though.

Every morning I get up and fill the ice maker up to the top, sip on the leftover water from last night while I wait for the new ice, and then refill when I'm done. I usually drink two cupfulls of water a day.

But what if I want my water to get me drunk?

The best part about water is that it makes the best mixed drink for sipping at home. Just carbonate it and mix it with a spirit. The Japanese highball is the height of such mixed drinks, but I've found that some experimentation yielded a variety of great options. I usually do around 5:1 water to spirit, but usually I eyeball the spirit pour and just full up the glass.

How to make it at home? Sodastream of course! Here is a picture of my Sodastream bottle, a very fancy eau-de-vie, and the resulting beverage. Here are my top picks for spirits to mix with your delicious spicy water:

  • Plantation Stiggins Pineapple Rum - This is distilled with pineapple to give it some good pineapple flavor, but it's not too sugary. It's 20g/L of sugar, meaning that a drink made with 3oz of it has under 2g of sugar, making it a great option for ketohomies who miss fruity cocktails.
  • Dingle Gin - Any decent gin will do, The Botanist is another great option. Mixing it with the water brings out the gentler botanical and herbal notes and makes for a refreshing drink.
  • Lustau Solera Gran Reserva Brandy - This can be tricky to find, but if you can, try it. There's a $35 Gran Reserva and a $25 Reserva. The Gran Reserva's a bit better, but both are good. It ends up tasting like delicious sherry soda. Subtle nutty, chocolate, and maple syrup notes, but not sweet at all.
  • Any bourbon - Japanese whiskey is good but my dirty secret is that I'll take a good bourbon highball any day. Weller OWA 107 is a great option that goes really well with the sparkling water, though it's next to impossible to find. Something with high value like McKenna Bottled in Bond, Wild Turkey 101, or Old Grand Dad 114 will do the trick.
  • Green Chartreuse - I was amazed this works, but it does. Really REALLY herbal, so if that's your thing, go for it.

    There are tons of other great options and plenty of bad ones (funky rum like Rumfire or Wray & Nephew, mezcal, peaty scotch, etc. are things I love that don't work)

    Hope this inspires people to drink more fuckin water.

u/bsievers · 5 pointsr/homeowners

I have this one:

you'll see it with the brand names igloo, frigidaire, etc. Same product, different brand with their label on it. It's not bad if you are ok with it failing after roughly 2 years of occasional use. Took longer than advertized to fill and is nearly impossible to clean.

Recommend against.

u/ChelseaRC · 5 pointsr/BarBattlestations

Not sure what you mean by freezer - but, I have this one and we have used it for a year now with numerous BBQ get togethers, birthday parties, weekly game nights and just everyday use. It is still going strong and does a great job. Makes the ice quickly and holds a decent amount in the reserve. The cubes aren't visually cocktail grade since they're shaped oddly due to how the machine works, but if that's not an issue then I think this could work for you.

Generic Mini USB Fridge (RED)

u/bootes64 · 4 pointsr/Appliances

I would go back to the college and remind them of the ADA. (if your in the US) You need the insulin to survive. Remind them that keeping needles and rx drugs in a common location is a massive health violation, safety issue and just a relllly bad idea.

That being said, you can get a mini USB fridge for a few bucks.

here's a quick amazon search Their designed to hold a 6pack of soda. Should be enough room.

u/robot65536 · 4 pointsr/SolarDIY

The biggest issue with solar and camping is that most campgrounds have tree cover that makes solar useless. Where are you planning to use it? Will you be able to park your vehicle there, or will you have to move the panels and run a wire to your battery?

The most useful setup, honestly, would be an auxiliary battery in your vehicle with a solar panel you can use to maintain it. That way, if there is no solar at your campsite, you can still charge it with your car. The battery will have to be sized to run the fridge all night long.

A fridge like this will use about 0.55 kWh/day (computed based on this. That means you need a battery rated for 0.55 / (80% inverter efficiency) / (80% cycle depth) = 860 Wh, or 12V/71Ah. That's about the size of an SUV/diesel car battery (I have some BMW 105Ah batteries myself).

The bigger problem is how to replenish this with just solar. A 100W panel will only generate about 500Wh of electricity a day, so you will likely need 150W, and a good sunny place to put them.

Total budget is looking like $200 for panels, $100 for battery, $50 for charge controller, $100 for fridge, so somewhere between $300 and $500 total.

u/WageSlaveEscapist · 3 pointsr/vandwellers

I got the cfx 65 for my 140" sprinter:

I was quite happy it came in grey.
You're welcome, glad you found it useful. More info at the blog next to my name.

u/lookitsaustin · 3 pointsr/vandwellers

You're most welcome! I bought the following:

4x100W Panels

Panel Mounting

Solar Panel Connectors

Tool Crimper

Assembly Tool

Panel Connectors

Power Information

CTEK Charger

CTEK SmartPass

200ah AMG Battery

Fuse Block

300W Pure Sine Wave Inverter

LED Strip

Dometic 35 Fridge

I bought all these items with research into my solar needs and following the advice from here in the vandwelling subreddit and also information I gathered from Amazon. I am probably doing a bit of overkill on my solar setup but I thankfully have the money to do it and don't want to mess with adding anything later.

I will have to do research myself on how to combine the four panels into the battery but that will be a few weeks away so I haven't done much in that area. I do plan to buy 10GA wire from Lowes and use the crimping tool and connectors to form my own wiring harness so it will be clean looking. \

EDIT: Adding info.

u/flukewhale · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I should have taken a pic, you're right it isn't online. I don't know if this is the exact model. But it is a Hisense and it is 7.2 cu", that much I know for sure. Looking at the amazon questions, it might be the same.

It's kinda pricy..

Is there a keezer build guide that stands above the rest? On average how many corny kegs will fit in a 7.1 cubic ft freezer such as this one?

u/FweeSpeech · 3 pointsr/leanfire

> I'm not saying your wrong (you probably are not if it's reasonable), but there would be some point where you bought too much, even at a discount. The money tied up in food is now idle. It could be working for you, earning interest or buying something you need more immediately. There's an optimal frequency and inventory level for every consumable item we buy and it's based on more than the bulk discount.

To function as you'd suggest, it would cost me more in time spent in stores than it would in the cash value of the food at the level of waste I have IRL. Just fyi.

I value my free time at $20/hr. Two trips a week instead of two trips a month is ~$80 in added time costs a month or ~$960/year.

I don't waste $960/year in food due to bulk buying. Most of my food waste comes from either:

A) Experimenting with food recipes and not liking the results. (aka learning)

B) The unexpected.

Similarly, $1000 for a freezer is o.O. A chest freezer with 7 cubic feet of capacity is like $250, new on Amazon, or like $50 on Craigslist (used).

That thing can hold ~100 lbs of frozen meat / vegetables easily. A few bags of rice that last months. And that is all the bulk buying you really do that isn't like soda or beer or whatever.

I'm honestly not sure where you get your numbers from but the "discount" for bulk frozen purchases is frequently as high as 33-50% the smaller units and the electricity costs are negligible. (~$130 a year, including purchase/replacement cost every 5 years)

Not bulk buying would cost me ~$1-2k a year. Even if my food waste is 25%, $1k on a $4k food budget is $1k vs. ~$1-2k. That doesn't even factor in the fact the cost in my time is higher than the cost of food waste cost so I'd simply break even and save time.

The chest freezer takes up a corner of the garage that wouldn't be used except to store more crap anyway and has a negligible footprint.

u/ketokate-o · 3 pointsr/keto

Here’s an example of what a quarter cow looks like .

I’ve never bought a quarter cow (though it’s on my to-do list), but I have bought a quarter pig. It was about 80lbs of pork. A 13lb ham, 16lbs of ground pork, 5lbs of bacon ends, and a bunch of chops/ribs/a pork loin or two. And scrapple! We paid $180 for 80lbs of pork and it was 100% worth it.

We bought a 3.5 cubic foot chest freezer and were able to accommodate all the porky goodness with room to spare. 1/4 cow is obviously going to be bigger, so probably 4 cubic feet minimum would be ideal.

u/cpverne · 3 pointsr/kegerators

Did you open the valve on the tank? You say the tank is full, but is that based on weight/shaking the tank or from the gauge on the regulator? Remember that the keg will come pressurized, so it'll push beer on it's own for a while until the pressure is used up. I've made the mistake of turning off the gas to the keg but not realizing it because the keg has pressure too.

If the tank gauge on the regulator is 0, then there's no gas coming from the tank.

If the tank gauge isn't 0, but the regulated pressure gauge (measuring the pressure after the regulator) is 0, then the regulator is probably turned completely off and you have a leak after the regulator.

Edit: Looking at pictures of the KC2000 on amazon, it looks like it only has a single output gauge, and no tank gauge.


Based on this photo:

  1. Make sure the black knob is opened fully to the left
  2. The blue knob is aligned to the red hose.
  3. Then adjust the regulator by turning to the left until it reads 15 psi (or whatever your beer should be set to).
u/ShinySpoon · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I had to cut the door shelving a little bit, but I’ve been using this unit for a couple years. All of my standard brewing buckets fit in it with no problem, as well as fermonsters and SSbrewtech Brewbucket. I use an Inkbird temp controller and a 60watt reptile bulb in a cheap surface mount light fixture for heat (I do a lot of kveik ales at 100°F).

Fits two corny kegs side by side as well if you decide to turn it into a kegerator.

u/Eliyahu_Gabrian · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

My dad knows the seller, the seller almost never used it. I'll probably still get it checked out though.
I like the idea of a chest freezer. The top loading is obviously a plus. However, I did find this:
What do you think?

Also, after insulation is installed, can I use wood or plastic paneling for the interior?

u/mdcaffee · 2 pointsr/microdosing

If there are other people in the house and you don't want to keep it in your fridge you could always buy one of those USB mini fridges to keep it in. Relatively easy to hide.

u/asdjfweaiv · 2 pointsr/DIY

Here's one that makes 28 pounds a day, and requires no plumbing:

EDIT: Ah, now I see your edit and I understand why you need a larger machine.

u/Rep-TX420 · 2 pointsr/trees

No worries, not offended at all. There are cheaper options but I got this one because it gets colder than most others I found.

u/BrewFool · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Got the 5.0, which by all appearances is a rebadged Midea which gets excellent reviews on Amazon ($162) and ALSO appears to be at least the same case as the GE sold by Lowes and Home Depot ($189) also with excellent reviews. The house-brand of Lowes (Idylis) and Best Buy (Insignia) don't appear to be Midea parts, and get lots of reports of infant mortality.

The 7 appears to be the same OEM (note the rounded triangle thermostat, the knurled threaded drain, and the inner door texture).

u/Robdiesel_dot_com · 2 pointsr/DIY

Well... cannibalizing is really the way to go. Cheaper on craigslist, but you get everything you need in one of these, you just have to configure it to fit your own box if you need something different.

u/lonmoer · 2 pointsr/OffGrid

Well if you want to use a traditional fridge you will need a big system. But if you go with a fridge like this:

Those can run nearly indefinitely on a car battery and a 100 watt panel.

They have countertop machines that make ice like this, but, fuck, they are expensive. This one is $410 dollars. You can almost get a fridge for that much.

u/ZOMG_LOL_WTF_BBQ · 2 pointsr/OffGrid

I've been looking into this for my off grid build, and I have come up with a solution to the high electricity cost of refrigerators. I plan to run a ice maker and use a old style ice chest, perhaps even a antique one they are reasonably priced. IIRC a ice maker capable of making 25 lbs of ice in 24 hours uses only 150 120 watts AC. The ice should last 3 days at least so the ice maker wouldn't have to run full time. This is the best solution I've come up with.

u/daveybaron · 2 pointsr/BarBattlestations

Not sure what your budget is like but you could get something like this. Pretty sure you can find similar stuff for cheaper.

You can combo this with some steel inserts for an ice well and bottle chilling.

u/montaukwhaler · 1 pointr/overlanding

Technology for DC fridge compressors has changed. I got rid of my 3way fridge and bought this Nova Kool 3.5 cubic foot 2way fridge for my Alaskan Camper. The DC compressor is amazing.I just got back from a 3.5 month trip driving around in Central America - think hot and humid - and the fridge never had a problem keeping up and making ice! I have one 160 watt solar on the roof, and a portable 80 watt that I used maybe 10 days. I'd spend anywhere from 1 to 6 days in one spot. While I was driving I also used a Dometic in the back seat of the truck for cold water, beer, and a place to store cold groceries on the road.

Anyway, the DC compressors have come a LONG way in the last few years. Pricey though.

If so, I can confirm it's a great ice maker. Got it for my mom a few years back. Still uses it and loves it.

u/stringthing87 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I put a little 1.1 cu freezer on my registry at Amazon. We don't have room for making up some freezer meals, and we definitely don't have room for breast milk, so this seemed like a good plan. If nothing else, we would then be able to buy the big packages of meat and break it up into meal portions.

u/Nordicaaron · 1 pointr/howto

Op, check this out:

It's a counter top ice maker. I use mine every day and the progress pelets are great. After using it for a while, totally worth the price.

u/ncschoon · 1 pointr/GoRVing

Not sure it helps but we bought an ice maker for around $100 through Amazon, it's an igloo model.

I'm really not sure how well this would do off grid though as I we are always plugged in but this thing churns out ice pretty fast. I usually buy one bag of ice or use what's in the house to start my cooler than keep this running while we are camping and I never have to buy ice again.

u/grizzlywhere · 1 pointr/Coffee

We probably could've. We had a rotating beer tap and the coffee tap in one of these.

It wouldn't have been anything more than pulling the hose off and running water through it, but people are lazy.

u/eidro8ks · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Ha! Came here to post this as well. $30 cheaper now than when I bought it. I think it's this one.

u/whatstheinterwebs · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I have seen these kegerators before and they are pretty good for the price. All of these low priced kegerators are a bit on the cheap side quality-wise, but I understand that it doesn't make sense for everyone to drop $1500 on a commercial one. Also, I am totally biased, but you will have a way better pour if the tower is cooled properly. If you do buy one, I make these, and they are the best one on the market /shamelessplug. Feel free to ask me any questions, I install draft beer systems professionally.

Pimp my cube!

This would be cute to look at when you need a little encouragement! And of course no cubicle is complete without a classic Hang in there poster, or a better DIY cross stitch version. Or how about a mini USB powered fridge so you always have a cold drink handy! Or how about a nice little live plant from the Carboniferous period that is impossible to kill even if you forget to water it!

Thanks for the contest!

There's really no hope for me if I can't have internet :P
For you, every awesome dorm HAS to at least have a mini fridge! :)

u/rustylugnuts · 1 pointr/Frugal

Lots of good suggestions here. The meal plans are a huge ripoff compared to cooking for yourself. In addition to the dorm fridge and microwave that everyone seems to have I would recommend getting a small freezer, an electric kettle and a slow cooker/crock pot.The kettle is great for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and ramen in a hurry. A ten lb bag of chicken leg quarters can often be found for under ten bucks. Throw half a bag in to the crockpot (and the other half in the freezer) and you have a meal for yourself and a few friends.

u/Anaxagoras23 · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Not actually "pure" nicotine, but probably 100 mg/mL nicotine. Much more potent than what you'll find in your normal bottles of e liquid. If I were a parent with small child I would keep my concentrated nicotine in a fridge with a lock and key or combination lock (example) for safety or just not DIY at home. It would probably also be worth showing them the safety equipment that I use because and explaining that they shouldn't ever go near my lab supplies. Actually talking to your kid is a big help.

It really depends on your stash and reasons for buying one. I bought this one since I had an oversupply and also wanted to be able to use it for other stuff like freezer meals and general freezer overflow.

I also bought these for storing the (Lansinoh) milk bags by date. They fit in the freezer perfectly, with I think about 14x flat 6oz bags per bin.

So I did a similar size cooler that's working fairly well. I'm using two controllers similar to the Inkbird, one for temp and one for RH, but DARNIT (pardon the language :-), mine is only either humidifier or dehumidifier mode; I can't run both! Usually that's not a problem, as the meat's usually giving up water and I want to run the dehumidifier, but the thing can overshoot as it's not an autotuning/learning PID. Also, you get a "dueling temp/RH" thing where the fridge cooling kicks on, temp drops, the RH changes, so the humidity sensor triggers, etc. That usually converges to a stable state, but requires some fiddling with your high/low set points on both temp and RH controllers, plus the other params. Sorry for going on, but even with the dual controller Inkbird (which I'm now going to buy - thanks for the info!), this is something you'll be dealing with a bit. Note that your unit has a water tray (I looked up the manual - it's a CWC-3200 right?), "to receive condensation drained from the interior", so when your cooling kicks in it'll be dehumidifying too. AND if it's bringing in outside air, it'll be mixing that RH in. So, good thing you'll be running both 'sides' of RH control.

I can suggest a dehumidifier that I like just fine. Everybody seems to get the odd teardroppy thing; I got this one about a month ago, which is more compact (I think) for $40 and love it. Suddenly now there're a ton like it for $35 or so, and now I see this one for $30. For a humidifier, I got one of these ultrasonic/wick things, and opened it up and am modifying the switch with a dab of solder to be "always on" (it's momentary and goes auto-off when it runs out of water), but again my controller is either/or, so I've not been using it yet. However, apparently the little $10 ultrasonic things like this just set in a reservoir of your choice are a no-brainer.

You'll want a set of S-hooks. I find the smaller the better as you've got limited vertical space. You'll want to think about how you're going to hang them in the cooler - those wine racks are going to be a bit of a PITA as you're limited to the bottom center of each bottle-holding wire and then the crossbars.

Best of luck! Andrew

I bought this one for $20 for a buddy who always keeps a small 250ml (call it 8 ounces) bottle around of nic. Actually works fine. Doesn't keep it cold at all, just keeps it from getting hot.

Not to sure what could be causing it. Probaby won't get to far trying to figure out what it is unless you tear it apart and you know what you are looking for.

Haier is an option it is inexpensive as fuck.

I'm not a big fan of Haier or Danby or Avanti but those are the ones that will be around your Price Range. Frigidaire makes a 1.7 that is going for 250~ right now.

i wont believe the 3.5 inch hard drive size till i see it. EDIT: I have a 3.5 inch enail. Vapetech by J4YT3X is the best. But i still dont understand why i would learn the arduino code and go thru so much trouble to have proximity sensors, multicolor indicicator LEDs, sound activated switches. when i can just plug my enail into something that already does this type of stuff for me? and looking back at your other posts u mention a cooling thing for hash, It makes sense sort of, but why not just buy a mini fridge for your hash? I dont like keeping my shatter in the fridge cuz i dont want excess moisture being introduced. But i know full melt is cured in the fridge, so here are some fridges that are really cheap: one of them is 16$ 1 can sized, and powered by a USB this could be taken apart and installed inside my cigar/hash box/enail. or i can get a mini fridge to keep in my room. best second Third
Why add chips and components to modify my enail, when i can easily do the same(get the same results) without any modification?

If you are looking for tool-related ideas, I recommend a nice digital torque wrench. You can probably find a used one online somewhere. Or even ask the truck owner for one that goes on sale.

EDIT: I would also appreciate a YETI Rambler 30 oz . You could even customize one to match something that he likes, for example, sports team, shop logo, personal name and shop title. Or a even a Mini Fridge!

I have a Dometic CF-35 that draws 4 Amps when running (48W) but it only runs 1/4 or less of the time, so that would come close to your requirement.

But, it's pretty large.

The CF-18 is somewhat smaller outside:

The CF-10 is smaller, still:

The specific refrigerator is This One. It plugs into a 120VAC power source, but it can run off a 12VDC power source as well.

u/cr0ft · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Something like a Dometic chest-style portable fridge (top loading) will draw maybe half an amp when it has done the initial job of chilling everything so you can easily run both a fridge and a laptop and stuff off solar and some deep cycle (or better yet, Lithium) batteries. Heck, you can have a fridge and a freezer on batteries easily if you like ice cream. (ok, granted, the 85 liter dual zone is the big one in the lineup and it's a thousand bucks, but it's also what I'm getting if and when I get my van project off the ground.)

How do you pull 790w from two 325w panels? Or are you saying you have some 100w panels in the mix also? I'm fine spending money to get a decent charge controller so no problem there. I may just go with the one 330w panasonic for now. I'm trying to power a fridge, two fans, charging phone/laptops, and occasionally running the sound system. What do you think?

Can you afford a minifridge? You can get a 4.4 cu. ft one on Amazon for about $183, or 2.6 cu. ft. one for $146. Unless you buy in bulk, the 4.4 might be good enough for your basic items. I've had the 1.7 cu. ft. since 2012 and it's still going strong. It gets cold enough to freeze drinks. I can fit 1 gallon of milk in it and some other things. But, I keep it in my room mainly for drinks. If you're using it in a dorm and plan to keep food and such, then I'd suggest 4.4.

I'm looking at this refrigerator, which draws 43 W.

And this solar panel produces 100 W.

If the solar panels can produce more power than the refrigerator requires, wouldn't it be possible to power the device irrespective of the voltage/amperage, since I can convert the voltage/amperage with converters and all?
