BougeRV’s ASPEN dual-zone fridge with battery backup

Have you ever had the misfortune of losing power and realizing your fridge is gradually turning into a lukewarm box of spoiled food? Trust us, we've all been there. But what if we told you there's a way to prevent this nightmare scenario? Introducing fridges with battery backup—perfect for anyone who values fresh food and peace of mind.

In today's post, we'll explore everything you need to know about fridges with battery backup. We'll cover how they work, their benefits, tips on choosing the right one, and top picks for RV camping. 

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let's get started!

1. Why You Need a Fridge With Battery Backup?

First things first, why should you even consider a fridge with battery backup? Well, let’s break it down:

  • Go Off-Grid: Whether you're dealing with a sudden power cut, transitioning between campsites, or enjoying the freedom of RV life, the battery-powered fridge keeps running smoothly. Explore those hidden gems without worrying about where you'll plug in next.

  • Food Safety and Peace of Mind: Spoiled food isn’t just a waste of money; it’s also a health hazard. With a battery backup, your meats, dairy, and veggies stay fresh 24/7, even when you're miles away from civilization. It’s one less thing to worry about.

  • Medical Needs: If you’ve got meds that need refrigeration, like insulin, having a dependable fridge is not just convenient—it’s essential.

  • Energy efficiency: Modern fridges with battery backup are designed to be energy-efficient, often consuming less than 1 kWh of electricity per day compared to traditional models. Many of these fridges are also solar-compatible, allowing you to capture the sun's energy to keep your beer cold!

  • Longer Fridge Life: Fridges with battery backup ensure constant power, which helps them last longer.

2. How Does a Fridge With Battery Backup Work?

A fridge with a battery backup has a built-in battery that takes over when there's no regular power. Normally, the fridge uses electricity from your wall outlet or a portable power station. But when you're camping or living in an RV without this electricity, the fridge battery automatically keeps your fridge running and your food cold. Fridges with battery backup are pretty great and always ready to use.

Many battery-powered fridges, like BougeRV’s ASPEN 40 and ASPEN 50 PRO, can also work with solar panels. This means you can use renewable energy to keep your food cold. It's like having extra security for your food and drinks, giving you peace of mind whether you're camping in the wild or on a long RV trip.

3. Five Key Features to Look For

Now that you're sold on the idea, what should you look for when shopping for a fridge with a battery backup? Here are some key features to consider:

  • Battery Life: This is crucial. Some batteries last only a few hours, while others can keep your fridge running for a whole day or more. Choose according to your needs.

  • Energy Consumption: Look for models that are energy efficient to save on electricity costs and extend battery life.

  • Size and Capacity: Ensure the fridge fits your vehicle or RV space and meets your storage needs. Generally, a portable fridge between 40-60 quarts is ideal for couples or small families, balancing space efficiency and capacity.

  • Smart Features: Dual zones, portable wheels, Wi-Fi connectivity, temperature control via apps, and ECO mode can add convenience.

  • Warranty and Support: Go for brands like BougeRV that offer good warranty terms and customer support.

5. Useful Maintenance Tips 

  • Regular cleaning: Wipe the coils and interior regularly to maintain efficiency.

  • Battery check and investing in an additional fridge battery if necessary: Periodically check the fridge battery's health and replace it as recommended. If you are frequently living in an RV, we recommend preparing 2 fridge batteries so that you can use them interchangeably for endless power.

  • Software updates: If your fridge comes with smart features, keep the software updated for optimal performance.
