Portable refrigerators are the 21st century's alternatives for thermos bottles and picnic coolers. Extremely handy and light weight, they can be used to transport food items in cold storage.
Whether you buy it for your car or bar, size plays an important role. Determine the space you need to accommodate your food items.

Also, keep in mind that a portable refrigerator is meant to be just that - portable. If you buy a big unit for larger storage it might not be portable enough. All the same, if you buy a small unit that's easy to carry it might not offer enough storage space.
The portable fridge designs determine the portability of the unit. Choose the style you feel comfortable to carry and use. If you are considering buying a compact wine refrigerator, check if the design will accommodate the odd shapes and sizes of wine bottles.
Decide the features you want in your fridge. While expensive units come with advanced features, you might not need all of them. Consider what you need first.
Consider the environment before you make your purchase. If the refrigerator is Energy Star rated then it means that it meets US government standards and is expected to deliver an economic performance than the rest. You should also make sure that the unit doesn't use environmentally harmful CFC gas, as they contribute to ozone layer depletion. Most units now use eco-friendly refrigerant gases.
