Rep Power: 12
Note, the Technautics is a 12v system.
It has technology that reduces the draw as it gets colder.
Its not the draw, but the total amp-hours that counts. Using the consumption guide at the reference site, the frigoboat system would use 38AH compared to 20AH for the Technautics.
I run it during the day while my solar panels are generating power, then turn it off for the night.
My current temp on the shelf is 34F, it freezes below the shelf, I have some Styrofoam on the plate on the top to prevent freezing.
If you were going to be full time cruising I would recommend the Technautics.
