Looks like the Novacool power consumption is less at 2.2 Amps max. Of course, the actual power consumption is all about the duty cycle in real world use.

I’m confused though. In Mike’s article, it says”

“Personally, I’ve found that having a 340 watt solar power system and a 220 amp hour battery bank is more than large enough to run my compressor refrigerator and meet all of our other electrical needs.”

But in this post it says:

“you can’t rely solely on solar to keep your batteries charged”

So I assume the cold hand of reality has shown more power consumption than was originally expected. I would love to hear more details regarding average consumption (both overnight and 24hr) and how many days Mike can go before having to supplement the solar.

I thought I would be good with my 200 watts of panel and 240 amp hours of battery, but now I’m not so sure.
