Just out! The Limited edition 50th Anniversary Gold Series Engel MT45FG!

The new MT45FG has some fancy new features to impress your mates.

Hi Campers,

We've just received our first batch of the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Gold Series ENGEL MT45 FG Fridge/Freezer and I tell you what, they've gone and made all the improvements we had wished for.

ENGEL have released this fridge to celebrate their 50th year of dedicated service to Australians.

The extra features of the Gold Series Engel MT45 FG include:
  • Digital Thermostat control - this means no more adjusting the dial to find the sweet spot for achieving your desired temperature.  You simply adjust the dial to reflect the temperature you want, and the ENGEL will make sure it achieves this.  Set and forget.
  • Battery Monitor with low battery cutoff - takes the guess work out of knowing how much charge is left in your batteries.  The low battery cutoff can be turned on or off depending on your needs but is there to prevent damage to your battery and fridge that can sometimes result from your fridge running the battery too low.
  • 50th Anniversary Black and Gold Insulated Transit Bag - the transit bag is essential for any fridge owner.  It helps your fridge run efficiently, and it keeps your fridge in pristine condition taking the brunt of any knocks, bumps or rubbing often caused when travelling on the road.  
Of course the 50th Anniversary ENGEL MT45 FG Gold series also includes the features you have come to expect from ENGEL such as:
  1. Three year warranty! 
  2. Built in LED light
  3. Auto Switching - the fridge will auto select the best power source on availability.  
  4. Sawafuji Swing Motor
  5. Rugged steel casing, still lid and handles that double as tie down points.
  6. Fixed lid hinges.

  1. why no battery back up for temp

  2. in older engles the temp gauge stayed on when not pluged in 50th dosnt

  3. Thanks for that Barnicle. I have not received official word from Engel in regards to why they did remove the separate battery for the temperature gauge in the gold MT45FP.

    I would imagine though that it is because Engel received many phone calls from customers reporting that their temperature gauge was broken. When in fact it just needed a new battery. I know that we have.

    Do you find the separate battery handy?

  4. Why do you want to see temp then switched off?? Seriously !!??

  5. I have met a few Engel users who operate their fridge a little differently than you might imagine. Some will crank their fridge really hard while they're driving and then turn it off when they arrive at their destination only turning it on when their temperature increases a bit much.

    I suppose one way around that would be to buy an aftermarket temperature guage so that temperature could be read when the fridge is off.
