Re: Why not cheap refrig components?
The $80 refrigerators operate on 110 volts AC. The $600 to $1000 conversion kits operate on 12 to 24 volts DC and pull maybe 3 to 5 amps. The small AC refrigerators pull about 1.25 amps at 110 vac for 137 watts (about depending on power factor) AND then power consumption of the inverter needed to convert 12 VDC to 110 VAC. You are paying for efficiency.
