SunDanzer DDR165 Direct Drive Solar Refrigerator Connect Direct to Solar Panels Without Batteries

In June 2010 SunDanzer introduced the world's first solar refrigerator that can connect directly to your solar panels without other controls or batteries, a battery-free refrigerator.  For users on a budget, you can avoid the expense of a charge controller and deep draw batteries.

The Model DDR165 will run on one 120 watt 12 volt solar panel in most locations (but let us run the loads for you to be sure).

This is an excellent option for critical refrigeration requirements such as helping to preserving temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals or refrigerated specimens.

Note that SunDanzer does not recommend this unit for storing temperature sensitive perishable food stuffs or other perishables.  For refrigerating perishables, see the new SunDanzer BFR105 battery free solar refrigerator.

Everything else about the DDR165 matches the specifications of SunDanzer's standard DCR165 refrigerator and DCF165 freezer.  See the solar refrigerator & freezer specifications here.
