    I FINALLY got a fridge!!

    No going back now. Nothing like a dry, cold place to keep your food and without the Ice taking up the majority of the room! Enjoy!!

    Battery box or dual batteries?

    I've been using the Flexopower 444 to power my CFX50 fridge and it's been working just great. A few people have not had such a good experience. It cost $100 more than that Jakery unit.

    Flexopower Lithium444 Setup Open Discussion/Questions

    Yeah, the LED's are like your gasoline gauge... only worse. I use an inline dc volt meter to see the load drain and then do the math.

    Flexopower Lithium444 Setup Open Discussion/Questions

    Wow, I feel badly for you guys because mine works as advertised with the exception of the LED indicators. When the unit is not charging, the LEDs are mostly all lit unless I 've drawn the battery down a good bit. When I am charging the unit using the 12v input , either solar or cigarette...

    Flexopower Lithium444 Setup Open Discussion/Questions

    Back from the 8 day trip and I am a fortunate guy. My CFX50 never got to the point of drawing enough power out of the 444 to go to the 3rd flashing led. The solar panel kept it topped off thanks to very sunny days and moderately cool nights (low 40's). The 12v cigarette adapter worked fine the...

    Flexopower Lithium444 Setup Open Discussion/Questions

    Man! Do I feel fortunate! I have my Flex Power plugged into the 12 V cigarette socket in the car and that is keeping it charged with all the LEDs lit. My CFX50 has been staying between 32 and 36° entire trip from Los Angeles out to Utah..

    Flexopower Lithium444 Setup Open Discussion/Questions

    So I got the Flexopower 444 and a Dometic CFX50 with the intention of only using the Flexopower for the fridge. I bought the 2 Goal Zero cables; One that "regulates" the voltage and the other that allows you to "combine" the outputs of a lithium Goal zero unit. And then 2 of the 6mm barrel to...

    Ordered my Flexopower Lithium444

    The Goal Zero combiner cable has the wrong size dc barrel connectors that come with it. Rather than cutting it up, I went to Powerwerx, bought some 2, 5mm x 2.1mm barrel to bare wire, then "Y'd" them together so that they would integrate into the Goal Zero constant voltage cable and that will...

    Ordered my Flexopower Lithium444

    Ok, I just ordered my 444 today and I went with the Yeti cables suggested as well. I'm looking forward to seeing my real world experience with this and my fridge... except that its maximum operating temperature is stated as 104 degrees F. That sure is not much. It regularly hits that for...

    Portable battery power center DIY

    So I’m a new member. My dilemma is that there are a number of Australian manufacturers that make the product I want…almost. Either way, the shipping alone dictates that I DIY it. 12volt portable power center (60AH up to 125AH) I want to charge from 3 different sources, not at the...
