This question already has an answer here:
I am looking for some help to understand what kind of battery could power a Dometic cfx50w 12/24/120V compressor fridge, while on-the-go. Here are the electrical specifications:
Input voltage (AC) 120-240 V
Input voltage (DC) 12/24 V
Rated input current (AC) 0.79 A
Rated input current (DC) 7.8 A
Input frequency 50/60 Hz
Most people choose a dual battery DC/DC setup for their car. I am looking for a more compact and portable solution, to get a few hours (minimum 4) running in normal conditions. I am thinking of a battery pack like those used in the RC hobby. Would this work?
I am looking for best battery chemistry and recommended ah rating considering the fridge would run for 10 minutes every hour and battery would have to provide 4 hours of power without getting damaged. Fridge has a cutoff voltage of 11.1v. I am wondering if lipo or lifepo4 batteries could replace a flooded lead acid and what would be the usable capacity. Battery would be charged at home by small rc charger.
