"swing" compressor quite amazing little gadget they are. engel, norcold, and I think isotherm use them.
ENGEL USA - AC/DC FRIDGE/FREEZERS | PERFORMANCE COOLERS - - Swing Motor Compressor
That looks very innovative. I have virtually zero knowledge of refrigeration but it seems like this would be excellent for a power miserly marine installation. I know the Danfoss in my Isotherm system gets quite warm to the touch when operating which translates to me as battery bank charge used up:-)
