CORRECTION NOTICE FROM VIPAC ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS LIMITED- 2015 FRIDGE COMPARO ENGEL 40L FRIDGE FREEZER POWER CONSUMPTION RESULT

In issue 228 (January 2015) 4WD Action published the “2015 Fridge Comparo” article in which a number of 12V 4WD fridges were compared against various criteria, including their power consumption.

The findings of the “Fridge Comparo” were based in part on test data provided by Vipac Engineers and Scientists Limited, the laboratory that conducted the independent testing of the fridges.

Since publication it has been discovered that there was an error in the power consumption data provided to the magazine in respect of the Engel 40L fridge/freezer (MT45FP).

engelRegrettably, as a result, the power consumption for the Engel model reported in the Comparo as being 956 watt hours per day, should in fact have been reported as being the lower figure of 34.42 amp hours per day.

The following has been published on the Waeco website;

Waeco has recently published comparative advertising material which stated that the Engel 40L fridge/freezer (MT45FP) consumed power at the rate of 80amp hours per day which was converted from a result of 956 watt hours per day published in Australian 4WD Action Issue #228.

Waeco has since been advised by Vipac Engineers and Scientists Limited, the Laboratory that conducted the independent testing, that this result was incorrect, as the Engel 40L fridge/freezer only used 34.42 amp hours per day.

Waeco apologizes unreservedly for publishing the incorrect information.
