SunDanzer BFR105 Battery Free Solar Refrigerator Connect Direct to Solar Panels Without Batteries

In May 2012 SunDanzer introduced the next generation battery free solar refrigerator that connects directly to a solar panel without other controls or batteries.

The Model BFR105 will run on one 130 watt 12 volt solar panel in most locations (but let us run the loads for you to be sure).

The BFR105 solar refrigerator will maintain temperatures safe for refrigerated perishables for four to five days of cloudy weather (autonomy).  The integrated ice packs that line the interior of the refrigerator compartment will freeze during sunny weather and maintain cold temperatures without the need for a battery.  The ice pack requires no scheduled maintenance for the life of the refrigerator other than normal cleaning.  No battery, no charge controller!

The ice pack reduces the interior volume of the BFR105 to 105 liters or 3.7 cubic feet.  Otherwise the exterior dimensions are the same as the SunDanzer DCF165 or DCR165.

BFR105 Features

  • Runs directly from a 130 watt 12 volt solar panel in most locations

  • Scratch resistant galvanized steel exterior and easy to clean aluminum interior

  • CFC-free refrigerant R-134a

  • Interior light (see our LED light option)

  • Basket for freeze protection organization

Important Notice About Freezing!

The BFR105 tends to run cold inside, especially in prolonged sunny weather, and can freeze items located in the bottom. This can be an advantage if you have items you want to thaw slowly, or for very cold drinks and even in some situations the ability to make some ice. A basket is provided to protect freeze sensitive products, such as fruits and vegetables. Be aware that products in the bottom of the refrigerator can freeze, and the basket is necessary to protect any freeze sensitive products. SunDanzer does not recommend storage of any products that are strictly freeze intolerant, such as some medicines.

Important Note About Where You Are Located!

The successful year round operation of the BFR105 depends on about 4 hours of full solar insolation per day.  If you are located where sun hours are low, especially during November - February north of the equator, you may need more watts of solar panel that the 130 watts offered with the BFR105 kit.  Please call us or contact us to discuss.
