    How much solar do I need to run my fridge

    Just saw this little chart made by Offroad Living.

    Thought I would show you guys and see your thoughts?

    Reckon it might be a bit low? I have the Engel 40L and asked @Cuppa for his advice. He did the calculations and came to the result that I needed a 120W panel. I bought a 140W panel as a safety.

    Wow just noticed the difference between the two... No secret that the Engel uses less power than the older waeco (I've got no idea on the newer model waeco) but not by that much!

    Yeah it's double and doesn't make sense.

    I can run my 60 waeco "indefinitely" off my 120w panel 100ah battery along with basic led light, phone charging, etc.

    Yeah nah definitely right. Engel rule!!

    Haha jokes I wouldn't have a clue.

    Checked the website fine print but couldn't find any ownership info other than the family running the show.

    You will get away with it AB in good conditions ie full sun all or most of the day but get three to four cloudy days and I assure you there is no substitute for quantity .
