    Hi Clunk

    What brand is it and how good is it on 12volt?

    It's a dometic and I must admit, I haven't tried it on 12V yet

    Seems to do the job on 240V alright though? We want to buy one and will probably be used 99% on 240V before leaving home but the option of having 12V is always good.

    I have the standard old everyday jobbie I use at home prior to tripping around the place.

    In the Van I have one of these style handheld Vac Sealers for sealing anything while tripping around.
    These have reuseable bags so need a wash etc when I get back home but on a trip are very versatile, work great and take up hardly any room

    Link for illustrayion only (but looks a lot like the one I have)...

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Looks very similar to my aldi one.

    One thing I found though is when the steak/snags have thawed in the cyro bag, always slow thawed in fridge,
    there seems to be some air space in the bag.
    Maybe the quality of the bags (ebay) or I need tp double seal.

    Apart from that, great machine.

    Love ours.. not 12v though..
    Use it every..
    Used probably 5 rolls in only a few years..
    But I've had to mod mine. Inside it has a pressure Reg valve sorta thing.. this broke in mine.
    I made a small plug with a pin prick hole.. took a bit to get the hole right so it didn't over pressure to quickly and trigger the seal to early but after half hour I've got it working better than new imo..
    Wouldn't be without it now..
    Cheers

    The sucking bit I think would be fine.. it's only a small piston pump with a couple of one way valves..
    It's the sealing element that you'd have to investigate..
    Should have power usage (watts) on the unit
