    Cool Brrr. Fridges?

    Anyone use and have any recommendations for a 12V fridge for the Zaf particularly? We're off (me and t'lass, a 2yr old & 5yr old) on a jaunt soon - land-ferry-more land-stop and then even more land, then extensive beach trips.
    Yes, I can take cool bags or look in Halfords or eBay, but I was wondering what the bus crew use on trips, if any?

    got a cool box with a 12v feed to it, works a treat but not used over night as when we did that with an Astra we nearly killed the battery

    Cheers. Been looking for one on the cheap but no cheapy luck so far.
    The Zaf has that handy little 12V in the boot doesn't it. I use it to power the DVD screens. It's not a permanent live with the ignition off so no worries there.

    Mine isn't mate. When I key off, the DVD screens and DVD player shut down. There's something in my manual about it too which mentions the socket will not remain charged after 15 mins or something.

    Wilkinsons were doing a cool box with a 12v power input a week or so ago, about 24 quid I think it was...
