Dometic makes a high-tech portable fridge freezer that has dual zone compartments and wifi capabilities. The Dometic CFX 75DZW may cost more than standard car coolers, but is it worth it? We take a look…
Are you a trucker, frequent boater or spend lots of time traveling in your RV? You will probably appreciate this Dometic cooler more, due to its more advanced capabilities.
1. No Ice Needed. Plus, the Dometic Can Make Ice
First of all, the freezer can make ice. Plus water freezes into cubes in just about 2.5-3 hours.
2. Control Cooler Temperature Remotely
Second, you can control the temperature on both the refrigerator and freezer sides remotely using your phone and Dometic’s wifi app.
Some people may not care about this feature, that is, until you can’t access your cooler for a long period of time and want to adjust the temp.
Of course, you can also see that the Dometic has temperature controls on the exterior of the unit as well.
3. Interior Cooler Lights
Third, both compartments have a convenient light that automatically turns on when you lift the cooler door. Whether you need to grab the ice cream at night or in a dimly-lit location, this feature comes in super handy.
4. More Fridge/Freezer Space
Fourth, the Dometic CFX 75DZW powered cooler provides plenty of interior space because it is one of the larger models. (60% more storage capacity in the same exterior space as other models!)
Having said that, you can buy an even bigger cooler with 20 additional liters of space.
Check out the Dometic CFA 95DZW, which has a higher price but only costs about $100 more.
Note: Keep in mind, however, that unless you need that additional cooling space, you may want to opt for the cheaper version. Here’s why. (1) Larger coolers cost more and require more energy to run. (2) It will take longer to chill the interior contents if you have lots of unused “air space”.
5. Energy-Saving Portable Cooler
The Dometic CFX 75DZW Fridge Freezer can run off of AC, DC and solar power. Plus, the high performance compressor reaches –7 °F (–22 °C) without using a lot of minimal energy.
Note: You can even charge small electronic devices through the cooler itself!
Go on long trips or go off grid without worrying about your cooer draining your car battery. In fact, Dometic built in a 3-stage Dynamic Battery Protection System. In other words, it automatically shuts off your cooler to prevent your car battery from going dead.
6. Portable Fridge/Freezer has a Heavy Duty Design
Need a rugged car cooler that can hold up during your outdoor adventures (ie, off-roading)? Dometic has you covered with stainless steel hinges, reinforced corners and tough, durable construction. (Also, check out their heavy-duty slide mount below.)

Money-Saving Tips for the Dometic CFX 75DZW:
Second, higher-end (and better quality) electric coolers typically last longer. Therefore, you get more use and don’t need to replace them as frequently.
Third, according to the manufacturer, you can operate portable fridge freezers at a higher temperature than your home refrigerator. Therefore, it costs less to operate the device. A few degrees difference shows to be adequate.
Fourth, as I mentioned above, you can cut down on operating costs (and sales price) by getting the 75DZW vs the 95DZW.
