The ultimate portable fridge freezer

In today's world, staying connected and having access to modern conveniences even in the great outdoors is becoming increasingly important. Whether you're an avid camper, a road trip enthusiast, or a weekend adventurer, having a reliable portable fridge can make all the difference in ensuring your food and drinks stay fresh and cool throughout your journey. In this EcoFlow Glacier review, we'll delve into the features, benefits, and overall performance of the EcoFlow Glacier Portable Fridge Freezer.

EcoFlow's Fridge Freezer

The EcoFlow Glacier is the world's first 3-in-1 portable fridge-freezer with an integrated ice-maker and plug-in battery. It features a dual-zone design with independent temperature controls, so you can keep your food and drinks perfectly chilled or frozen.

Industry's First Integrated Ice Maker

Glacier sets itself apart from the competition by being the industry's first portable fridge with an integrated ice maker. Equipped with a powerful 120W compressor, it brings you 18 solid ice cubes in just 12 minutes.

Whether you're hosting a picnic, camping with friends, or tailgating at a sporting event, the integrated ice maker adds a touch of luxury to your outdoor adventures.

Fastest cooling in the industry

GLACIER can rapidly refrigerate from 30°C to 0°C in around 15 minutes. That's the fastest cooling in the industry and sets it miles apart from competitors.

Charge time

AC (180W): 26 min

DC (24V): 120 min

DC (12V): 233 min

Solar Panel (240W): 130 min (only with plug-in battery)

Dual-Zone Design

Glacier offers the flexibility of two separate temperature zones, allowing you to simultaneously freeze and refrigerate your items. This feature is particularly useful for keeping different types of food at their optimal temperatures.

Large 38L Capacity

With a generous storage capacity, Glacier can accommodate up to 60 330ml cans of beverages or a combination of food and drinks. This makes it ideal for longer trips or when you need to stock up on supplies.

Digital Display and Controls

The intuitive digital display allows you to easily monitor and adjust the temperature settings of the Glacier. You can customise the temperature to suit your specific needs, ensuring your food and beverages stay perfectly chilled.

FAQs

What solar panels are compatible with Glacier?

Glacier is compatible with any solar panel that has an output of 240W or less. However, EcoFlow recommends using their own solar panels, as they are designed to work specifically with the Glacier fridge freezer.

What is the warranty period for Glacier?

The EcoFlow GLACIER comes with a standard 12-month warranty. Customers who register their product on the EcoFlow website or in the EcoFlow app can extend their warranty by an additional 12 months.

The warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship. It does not cover damage caused by misuse, abuse, or neglect.

To register your EcoFlow GLACIER, you will need to provide your product serial number and proof of purchase. You can find your serial number on the back of the product.

What refrigerant does Glacier use?

Glacier uses R600a. R600a, also known as isobutane, is a natural refrigerant that is gaining popularity due to its low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It has a GWP of 3, which is much lower than other common refrigerants such as R134a (GWP of 1430), meaning it has a much smaller impact on the environment.

R600a is less flammable than other common refrigerants, such as propane (R290).

What portable power stations are compatible with Glacier?

The EcoFlow Glacier has a maximum input power of 120W, so you will need a portable power station that can output at least that much power. Some of the portable power stations that are compatible with the EcoFlow Glacier include:

EcoFlow RIVER 2 Max
EcoFlow DELTA Max

Multiple Charging Options

Glacier can be powered through various sources, including a car socket, solar panels, or a standard AC outlet. This versatility ensures you can use it anywhere, whether you're on the road or at a campsite.

 

  • Fully charged by solar energy (up to 240W) in as fast as 2.1 hrs
  • Fully charged by AC in 2.2 hrs
  • Fully charged by DC (12V) in 4 hrs or DC (24V) in 2.1 hrs

Cooling for up to 40 hours wire-free

Glacier provides up to 24 hours of runtime. However, with the additional EcoFlow plug-in battery, you can achieve up to 40 hours of wire-free cooling. This ensures you never have to worry about power limitations during longer trips or outings.

This runtime can be extended even further if you use Glacier alongside your EcoFlow Portable Power Station. Achieve an astonishing 8 days runtime under Eco mode with EcoFlow DELTA Max 2000 and the Plug-in Battery connected!

Dometic CFX3 35L

One notable feature of the EcoFlow Glacier is its built-in ice maker. This allows you to produce ice cubes conveniently without the need for additional equipment. GLACIER also has a longer run-time, even without the additional battery, and features dual compartment zones so you can freeze and refrigerate simultaneously. The Dometic CFX3 35L does not have a built-in ice maker nor does it have dual zones. It also has a slightly longer cooling speed.

App Control

The EcoFlow Glacier Portable Fridge takes convenience to a whole new level with its seamless integration with the EcoFlow App. By simply downloading and connecting to the app on your smartphone, you gain complete control over your portable fridge. Adjust temperature settings, monitor power usage, make ice and receive real-time updates on the fridge's status, all from the palm of your hand. The app enables you to manage your cooling needs effortlessly, enhancing your overall experience with the Glacier.

Other Features

With its powerful 100W max USB-C charging, this device can keep your phones and laptops charged for hours.

With the additional detachable lever and wheels (sold seperately), you can easily transport it from your car to your RV, boat, or campsite. And when you're not on the move, you can detach the wheels and fit Glacier right on your counter, in the passenger seat, or in other compact spaces.
