Introducing the new Legacy 40 Litre Single Compartment Fridge Freezer by National Luna | NLR40SL
National Luna fridges and freezers are synonymous with high-quality, high-end portable refrigeration. The new Legacy 40 litre fridge or freezer is the smallest in their range, but still packs a punch and can maintain an incredible -18oC even in ambient temperatures as high as +43oC.
National Luna’s 40 Litre Single Compartment fridge has been developed for performance at high ambient temperatures, minimum power consumption, and overall operating efficiency. This fridge is recognised as the world’s most powerful portable 40 Litre option. Low power consumption is achieved using 60mm high-density insulation and a very compact design. Also available in a variety of sizes.
It's small on the outside, but BIG inside, this fully-featured ‘small’ fridge / freezer by National Luna fits easily into most vehicles and offers a convenient way to take a weekends’ food and drinks for two or three people. Ideal as a dedicated freezer.
The 60mm thick wall insulation and complete coverage wall and floor cooling plates ensure the lowest possible battery consumption, making this one of the models ideally suited as a permanent portable freezer or extreme duty fridge.
12/24v DC and 240v AC are all built in and the unit will automatically select to run on mains power whenever it is available - but revert to battery power if the mains go off.
A NEW COMPRESSOR MEANS BETTER EFFICIENCY
Experience an unparalleled performance increase all thanks to the new National Luna Off-Road compressor. The fridge now runs on less energy thanks to the compressor doing all the heavy lifting.
Having been the experts in 12V portable fridges for over 30 years, National Luna’s ingenious design team developed their own compressor. The all-new Legacy models are fitted with this new Off-Road Compressor and have an AC/DC electronic power supply fitted as standard equipment.
The Legacy models will operate from 9.6V to 31.5V DC, as well as AC voltage ranging from 100V to 240V. Automatic switching is standard. After rigorous development and testing, this OEM Off-Road Compressor, designed specifically to handle the rumble and tumble of off-roading, reduces energy consumption and improves overall performance. This compressor comes with an 8-year warranty.

BETTER CONTROLS EQUAL MORE FREEDOM
Smarter construction is one element of National Luna’s superior performance. Smarter compressor control is the other. The National Luna Off-Road Compressor will automatically operate in the high-speed TURBO mode until the temperature set point is reached. Thereafter it will operate in the energy-efficient idle mode, ensuring optimal power consumption. Because different battery types can be discharged to various levels, you have the power to select the depth of discharge of the battery, ie. how low you intend to allow the battery to flatten. All National Luna fridges and freezers incorporate Low/Medium/High battery cut-out protection circuitry.
And finally, when it comes to operating your National Luna fridge or freezer, you are in charge like no other manufacturer. Equipped with an easy-to-read digital thermostat, the programmable intelligent controller allows you to set the exact temperature while simultaneously showing you the current compartment temperature. TURBO mode can also be manually selected.
BETTER DENSITY EQUALS MORE INSULATION
The new National Luna Legacy Fridges and Freezers feature higher density insulation around the compartments to increase the overall insulation value. With the coupled power from their latest and greatest new Off-Road Compressor, working hard to cool the fridge and freezer compartments down more rapidly, the higher density insulation ensures the compartments retain a longer cool period. Yet another way to ensure less energy consumption.
BETTER CONSTRUCTION MEANS MORE CONSISTENCY
Made with a Stainless Steel exterior and aluminium interior, National Luna fridges, and freezers are metal inside and out. The durability benefits are obvious, but it also provides better cooling. Metal cabinets and metal inner liners coupled with a unique manufacturing process allow the latest generation foam to be injected under high pressure resulting in denser, more effective insulation. The result? Maximum interior space with a more compact overall footprint. And while plastic fridges use a separate “refrigeration plate”, National Luna’s inner aluminium metal construction in conjunction with copper cooling piping means less cold spots (we all know that terrible single spot that freezes everything and shouldn’t?). This keeps temperatures stable across the whole of the interior, cuts running time, reduces how long it takes to the fridge to pull the temperature down once new contents are added, and keeps food fresher for longer.
NOW WITH A DIN STYLE 12V POWER CONNECTION, NOT A CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG - PLEASE READ!
The National Luna fridges do not come with a standard cigarette-style 12v plug.
Here is why:
The outlets installed in the back of your vehicle are at the end of a wiring loom and are most likely reduced to 18 gauge by the time they reach your outlet. The standard cigarette lighter male plug has a flexible single point contact on one or two sides. All current is now reduced to that single contact point. Imagine drinking a fountain soda through a cocktail straw. How much harder does your fridge have to run to compensate for this? Very inefficient. Not to mention the outlet being keyed on and off by the ignition.
National Luna's power cord is 10 gauge, multi-strand copper. It has a Hella style DIN male plug on it that is wrapped in 360 degrees of copper for contact to the Hella style DIN socket. Full and complete contact at the connection. National Luna also provides the socket for installation in your vehicle, suggesting a dedicated line of similar gauge from your power source. Now you have a sufficient source of power for your fridge to run on, allowing it to run as it should. This reduces overall power consumption and extends your battery life.
All National Luna Legacy Fridges purchased directly from 4x4 Down Under come with a 3 year warranty fridge.
