Can a solar generator run a fridge?

Portable Fridge

A refrigerator use power when it works its way down in temperature, when it has come down in temperature it turns off the compressor.

My portable fridge is using about 12V 5 amps (60W) when it is running at first but when it is down at the right temperature it stops and only kicks in now and then. It only works to maintain the temperature that is set. They say that it is operating about 22% of the time and it seems be about right regarding to my observations

Depending on how much I have in the fridge, the time to get down in temperature takes about 15 minutes. I use an ice clamp to help it drop in temperature to save power. My fridge uses this formula to calculate what power it takes per day. 

Formula: Current draw x average running time* (48 W: 12 V = approx. 3.75 A)
Example: 3,75 A x 22 % (22% of the time) 10W
Amperage: ‹ 1 Ah / h, ‹ 24 Ah / day

This is how my fridge is running so the formula should be correct.

Here is different ways to monitor amps on your 12 volt battery
I use the output/ Load function on my Victron Smart Solar and then check thrue Victron Connect app

This is my fridge and freezer at home

As you can see it runs on 230V and it takes about 0,8 Amps when its running, that would be 230 * 0,8 = 184W

So for one hour it takes about 184 Wh but it is not operating all the time so its just an estimation depending on outside temp and what’s in the fridge

Best way to check this is to measure how much power the fridge takes in 24 hours

My freezer runs on 230V and it takes about 0,9 Amps when its running, that would be 230 * 0,9 = 207 W But they have specified 274W on the label so it varies depends on temperature, 274W is probably the max power

Don't know how much power your devices take?

Maybe you can find the devices in the list and then calculate what you need, check out my posts below
