    Nope, it goes lower. Honestly don't know what the lowest setting is. I'll mess around with it over the weekend some more....

    display by 4*, More pics and better review to come. If someone was looking to pull the trigger on one of these right now I 'd say go for it. And thanks to the wife for saving some dough
    too. Too bad I spent it on a winch plate and Rigid Lights for the new JL

    I wouldn’t put much stock into the temp display. It’s probably like a broken watch: right at least twice a day.

    I put a recording thermometer in my ARB for 24 hours. These little fridges are either on or off. There’s no middle ground. The temp plotted as almost a perfect sine wave. Cool down, heat up, cool down, heat up , repeat.

    As long as the beer stays cold, it’s working.

    I set mine at a specific temperature when I first got it and left it for 2 days and then checked for ice in the water. Then I kept lowering it 2 degrees and left it for another 2 days. I just kept doing that until I saw ice in the water. Then I moved it back up 2 degrees. I think mine is set on 27F and has been that way for months with no ice on anything and everything stays cold.

    Beer is actually how I found the setting I wanted, on my ARB. I filled it up with water bottles, and a few brews. I tinkered with it, until some of the water would just start to freeze, then bumped it up a degree or two.

    Thanks for the update on the fridge and, as others have said, I wouldn't pay too much attention to the temp display other than to know where you want it at to give you what you need. My ARB's are old and can't be adjusted and they've never been right.

    5 month update

    I think I'm to the point that unless something drastic happens, I'd recommend that this Costway fridge be on anyone's list that is looking for one of these. It's been running constantly for 5-1/2 months now on both AC and DC without a hitch.
    Had it in the house for Mothers Day last weekend and it did great as a party fridge. WIfe did great on this one.

    Thanks for the update. It's hard to justify the cost of an ARB with the lack of use I think it'd get from us, but this may be a nice more affordable alternative over an ice chest.

    When you throw in the convenience of using this when you go grocery shopping, it's really not too hard to justify. I've even used it as an overflow fridge when we are having people over and need space to store prepared dishes and whatnot.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
