Taking a Chance on Cheap Used Gear

Coleman Car Cooler

Sometimes taking a chance is worth it. I picked up this $150 car cooler / refrigerator for $10. Got it home, didn't work. Got to tinkering with it. Nothing more than 2 computer fans mounted a large heatsink. Cleaned fans, dirty as hell and full of fur. Fuse had moisture in it, changed it out. In the process noticed the cigarette lighter plug looked odd. Yup. Spring loaded tip was backwards, so wasn't making a connection. 15 minutes and a $2 5 pack of fuses - good as new.
