It's nice when you can buy something you want and get something that makes you feel good about yourself, too. If you're in the market for a compact fridge to fit in a small space--a bar, a dorm room, or an office, for example--consider a coolant-free 1.7 cubic foot fridge featuring Haier America's NuCool technology.
NuCool is a new technology that lets your compact fridge run as low as 37 degrees (colder than past refrigerant-free models allowed). So the only green you'll see will be the eco-friendly kind, not the disgusting mold-in-the-back-of-the-fridge kind. NuCool doesn't use a compressor and runs quietly--and it does it all with ultralow power consumption.
You can find the compact fridge in white or black. It's lightweight and easy to move and can store 2-liter soda bottles. The door can open right or left, and the adjustable thermostat and auto-defrost features will keep all your foods at the proper temperature. The fridge retails for less than $100, which makes it an affordable gift for the college student in your life.
