In October 2015, I spoke here in Skooter Blog on Mini Fridge Portable 12V or 110V with 4 Liter, Heats and Cools function - Multilaser that I had acquired in Ruk Electro. She worked from acquisition, in September 2015 until February 2016, When it just stopped working and didn't care more. She was sent to RMA and Vampireweather sent me another new, as also previously reported here on Skooter Blog.
But the new Portable Mini Fridge It worked for only 27 days and had the same purpose as the previous. Simply stopped working and didn't call more, not to cool, or to warm up.
Like the other time, turned on again the Vampireweather and the system's RMA immediately sent a post code, I used to send the new Portable Mini Fridge departed back to them the next day. The shipment was for PAC paid for Smokergrillsblackfriday and came to your destination in a week. Posted in 12/04 and was delivered to them in 18/04.
No give 19/04 I have already received an invoice on my email and noticed that they were sending me a new mini fridge, This time of different model: a Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model. I don't know why they sent another model, because it was not given any explanation. Maybe they didn't have the previous (TV004) in stock, Maybe they decided to stop her because of the problems, or maybe they decided to try to send me another model because I have already returned two faulty TV004.
Ultimately, I researched quickly over the Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model and I saw that it was similar, However it is trivolt, works with 12V, 110The e 220V. Considering that the problems of the other two were probably in the source, Maybe a source that works automatically with 110V or 220V is better. I hope so.
Yesterday (26/04) reached Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model. At first it seemed a little bigger, but she also supports 4 l, so maybe it's just printing. The color is obviously different, the Red may not please those who want something quiet, but I don't care about that. As long as it works and doesn't break again, It's on.
The door latch sounded better on TV007. The controls and entry of the wires are on the side instead of the back. Different noticed a key to select between AC and DC (AC alternating current, for 110V or 220V and DC DC, for 12V). As in TV004, are different inputs to the 12V cable, It has vehicular outlet, and for the 110V or 220V, with plug in standard and without ground pin.
On the back you can see the fan and parts of a circuit board, where some capacitors, resistors, diodes, etc. On the inside there is a removable plastic grid, there is no grid on the door as in TV004.
Again I used the Clock-Thermometer-Hygrometer Digital (LCD Digital Clock Thermometer and Humidity Meter) for the temperature test. With the room temperature in 26.9° C, a Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model was able to lower the temperature on the thermometer to 15.3º C after 3 or 4 hours, and it remained so even after more 8 hours. Performance was somewhat lower than that of TV004, which reached 11.3 ° C, even with higher ambient temperature. In the packaging, the minimum temperature informed for TV007 it's 6º C, what is a degree unless in TV004 also. It is worth noting that the minimum temperature that a thermoelectric system can reach depends on the external temperature, therefore the 6º C will only be reached (if they will be) with an external temperature also low.
How am I going to use Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model just to keep ice water and eventually put some fruit, like apples, 15.3º C should be sufficient. I did not test with the heating function.
Again, Multilaser's RMA worked well, with the only negative point of not informing the tracking code when sending the new product, although there is a field in the system for that. The system continues to repeat the code of our shipment in the return field erroneously, as já relatei no outro RMA. Portanto é um problema persistente.
Apesar do RMA ser bom, eu gostaria muito de não precisar utilizá-lo novamente. 🙂 Espero, therefore, that Portable Mini Fridge Retro, TV007 model seja um produto de melhor qualidade e que dure bastante. Time will tell.
