BougeRV CR35 – 12V / 37 Quart (35L) Portable Refrigerator Freezer w/ Dual Zones

Whenever you’re planning to go on a road trip or spend some time outdoors enjoying Mother Nature, there’s some equipment that you just can’t go without. For camping trips, that’s obviously a camping tent and sleeping bag, along with some extra camping gear and cooking gear. Then, for spending some days at the beach, park, lake-side, or at the countryside, you’ll certainly need some towels or blankets to sit on, along with a larger food cloth or towel (for having a picnic) where you can safely place your food so that you can comfortably enjoy it. Now, regardless of the outdoors location you’re visiting, you’ll always need a reliable way to store your food items to ensure they don’t heat-up under the sun and spoil. While a cooler bag / pouch might do the trick if you’re going out for just a couple hours, having a portable refrigerator freezer can ultimately ensure that all of your food items (like sandwiches, home-cooked meals, water, beer, juice, etc.) and extra snacks can stay nice and fresh for a much longer period of time. So, if you haven’t already looked for one, then it might be time to up your camping game by investing in a portable fridge freezer such as the BougeRV CR35.

The BougeRV CR35 is a 12 Volt 37 Quart (35 L) capacity portable refrigerator freezer that features two separate True Dual Zone cooling compartments cooled by an innovative compressor refrigeration technology that allows for rapid cooling in just 15 minutes, for which users can independently control each compartment’s temperature, along with 4 different temperature settings which can be configured via its dedicated digital LED Control Panel or via the ChargePro 2.0 Mobile App, all while also boasting a quiet operation at just 45dB.

On top of that, this portable refrigerator freezer also boasts some nice extra quality-of-life integrations, including a built-in LED Light, a removable cutting board, and a built-in bottle opener.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the BougeRV CR35 and check out everything that this 12 Volt 37 Quart (35 L) capacity portable refrigerator freezer

Dimensions

As said earlier, the BougeRV CR35 is designed to work as a portable refrigerator freezer, and so, for its portability, the unit comes equipped with a retractable telescoping handle that can be pulled in and out, for which that same handle can be locked or unlocked via a set of two (x2) Button Locks integrated at the front-right and front-left sides of the unit (located right under its lid).

Moreover, the unit also comes equipped with a set of ultra-durable rubberized wheels at it’s back-side, which together with its telescoping handle, allow for an easy transportation of the unit within your campsite.

At the opposite side of its telescoping handle, there’s also a built-in carrying handle. Thanks to that, the unit’s retractable telescoping handle can also be utilized as a second carrying handle (by simply retracting it back in and locking it safely in place), which ultimately makes it much easier for users to pick up the unit when looking to place it either down into the ground or back up into their vehicle’s trunk.

Regarding its design, the unit features a simple, minimalist, and stylish design, as its main body mainly comes in a flat Black Matte-finish color, while its top-side features a nice and bright Gold-Yellow accent thourhgout its top-opening.

Furthermore, this portable refrigerator freezer also features an extremely robust construction, as the BougeRV CR35 is specifically built for a rugged use within the outdoors, whether that’s a camping site, at the lake-side, the beach, you name it.

Additionally, the unit’s top-side also features a door-latch located at the middle of its front-side, which allows for a more secure way of keeping its lid closed when you don’t need to have the unit opened. Note that the BougeRV CR35’s top-lid (or door) is also completely detachable.

Now, in terms of its internal capacity / storage space, the BougeRV CR35 features two separate cooling compartments that offer its users a total storage capacity of 37 Quart / 35 Liters (1.3Cu.Ft.). These compartments consist of a larger 26.59Q (25L) capacity compartment, along with a slightly smaller 10.63Q (10L) capacity compartment, and both compartments already come pre-equipped with a set of removable baskets that feature their corresponding storage capacity.

When it comes to the unit’s internal-cooling method, both of its cooling compartments are specifically cooled by an innovative compressor refrigeration technology that allows for a fairly rapid cooling of any food items and beverages, which happens in just 15 minutes of time.

Best of all, the unit’s two separate cooling compartments also boast True Dual Zone temperature-settings, which, as the name of this functionality suggests, ultimately allows users to independently control the temperature settings for each of the BougeRV CR35’s storage cooling compartments.

On that note, for checking and controlling the temperature settings for the BougeRV CR35’s two separate storage compartments, there’s a dedicated digital LED Control Panel that’s integrated directly onto the unit’s top-side, sitting just behind its retractable telescoping handle.

Built-in Digital LED Control Panel

The unit’s digital LED Control Panel features a simple and straightforward interface, which, going from left to right, consists of a Increase-Temperature Button, a Lock / Unlock Button (used to easily lock or unlock the controls for its LED Panel), and a Decrease-Temperature Button, followed by a digital Display Panel, which is then followed by a Settings Button, and a Power On/Off Button.

Firstly, note that unit’s digital LED Control Panel displays the current temperature-levels for each compartment. In addition to that, via the BougeRV CR35’s digital LED Control Panel, users can also individually configure / set the temperature settings for each of its two separate storage compartments, which can be set between -4°F to 68°F (-20℃ to 20℃). (Alternatively, all of that can also be done via the unit’s dedicated Smartphone Companion App – discussed with greater detail at the next section of the article).

Thanks to their True Dual Zone temperature functionality, its two storage compartments can ultimately be set to work in 4 different Dual-Cooling methods: Dual-Refrigerator, Dual-Freezer, Refrigerator and Freezer, or Freezer and Refrigerator.

Finally, in terms of its power specifications, the BougeRV CR35 also features a fairly quiet operation at just 45dB, while boasting either a rated Voltage of DC 12V / 24V when using its included 110V~240V AC Power Adapter to power up the unit, or alternatively, a rated Voltage of 12V to 50V when using a Solar Panel or Solar Generator to power up the unit.

This portable refrigerator freezer also boasts a Rated Power Input of 60W when working at its Max Power Mode, or just 45W when working on Eco Mode.

It’s also worth noting that this portable refrigerator freezer also boasts a 3-Level Battery Protection functionality, which combines an Automatic Voltage Detection function together with a Low-Voltage Automatic Power-Off function and a Safe-Travel function.

Last but not least, and as said earlier, the BougeRV CR35 also boasts some nice extra quality-of-life integrations.

The first one of those integrations is a built-in LED Light, which can be found installed directly at the top-side of the unit’s 10.63Q (10L) compartment.

Secondly, there’s also a removable cutting board integrated at the bottom-right-side of the unit’s detachable lid, which comes neatly held by a dedicated securing latch. This removable cutting board can conveniently be used whenever users require to chop up meat, vegetables, fruit, etc.

Finally, there’s also a built-in metallic bottle opener integrated on the outer side of the unit, which is installed discretely close to the top of the unit’s right-side. This sleek built-in metallic bottle opener makes it easy for users to pop-open any glass-bottled beverages, whether that’s a fresh cold beer, a refreshing cola, or anything in between.
