As the calendar starts shifting into the warm weather months, the call of the wild starts to beckon. No matter if this call is something that drives us forward back to nature or on to another city of steel and concrete, this lure often means only one thing: road trip. Nowadays, of course, it is easier than ever to stay in touch and also bring along all of our creature comforts. Usually however, that doesn't include the contents of the fridge.

The BaseCamp Portable Refrigerator/Freezer has a 42-quart capacity and plugs directly into an automobile accessory socket. Smart enough to know not to drain the car's battery (it automatically shuts off before that time), the appliance is meant to be plugged in to a generator or standard electrical outlet once the destination is reached.

Peace of mind is supplied by a remote wireless readout that conveys the current temperature, while internal LED lighting makes it easy to find what you're looking for. The unit has an operational temperature range of 0 degrees Fahrenheit to 45 degrees Fahrenheit; ideal for hauling all manner of goods. Perfect for camping or other long getaways, the portable chiller is made for adventurers who enjoy a bit of modern convenience -- as well as the option to bring all of their condiments along for the ride.
