The Weekender National Luna 52 Litre Fridge Freezer | NR52S
National Luna fridges are synonymous with high-quality, high-end portable refrigeration. This 52 litre fridge or freezer offers real world storage capacity greater than some of their competitor's so-called 60 litre models. This model can be used as all Fridge or all Freezer and holds a whopping 84 cans (std 375ml drink cans). 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. An LED Battery Monitor is built in to the control panel so you can see at a glance how much battery capacity you have left - great for planning ahead! A digital thermostat that can be set down to as low as minus 30C ensures the unit maintains your desired temperature range without the need to adjust for hotter or colder weather. Ripple Stainless steel outer cabinet and aluminium internal lining for maximum durability and ease of cleaning. Contains three plastic baskets for ease of loading and sorting. How do National Luna Fridges cool down so quickly?
It comes down to three unique features. National Luna fridges contain larger cooling plates delivering cooling from top to bottom, ensuring consistent temperatures.
Higher Insulation Density using parallel metal internal walls and outer cabinets allow insulation to be injected at high pressure to achieve higher densities.
And finally, Better Sealing! There’s no thin rubber strip seals in National Luna fridges! Employing the same design as commercial fridges, National Luna fridges maintain lower temperatures with less power use ensuring the compressor can run for the shortest time possible.
Dual Direction Lid A special feature of the Weekender is the ability to change the direction in which the lid opens. The most common configuration is the front-opening direction. If the application prevents the lid from opening fully, it may be advantageous to use the side-opening configuration. Just relocate the hinges and catches to the other location and change back again if ever necessary. The Weekender is supplied in the front-opening configuration.

National Luna Portable Fridge Freezers - Exceptional Quality, Tough and Versatile
Originally designed to meet World Health Organisation specifications for transporting medicines in harsh African conditions, National Luna fridges are now the preferred choice for safari operators, caterers, mining companies, and 4WDers who need commercial-grade quality and serious performance with low battery consumption in demanding conditions.
TOUGHER, SMARTER, BETTER
Metal construction makes National Luna fridges tougher, and clever design plus intelligent controllers makes them smarter, but what makes them better? The answer is superior performance in the form of a proven ability to refrigerate, or freeze, safely in very hot weather, and to do it with the lowest possible power consumption, reliability, and durability second to none.
National Luna makes a simple guarantee: our fridges maintain genuine freezing capability...even with outside temperatures of 43oC. With National Luna you know the fridge can handle extremes and maintain stable temperatures... and that’s important because your food will last longer and your drinks will stay colder.
Power usage is important too. In the real world battery drain is about how much power a fridge uses over days, not just how many amps it draws in a lab, and tests in real-life conditions prove National Luna fridges stay cool with the lowest possible power consumption.
Where others struggle, National Luna fridges keep on doing the job in the most extreme conditions!
THE PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGE
Smarter design makes National Luna fridges better, and three key design features help deliver the best refrigeration performance: Larger cooling plates – the cooling plates on National Luna fridges also form the fridge's inner walls delivering cooling from top to bottom and ensuring consistent temperatures and fast 'pull-down' times.
Higher insulation density – National Luna fridge/freezers use parallel metal internal walls and outer cabinets allowing insulation to be injected at high pressure to achieve higher densities – just like roofing insulation where an R3.0 batt outperforms an R2.5 batt of similar thickness, higher density gives improved performance without wasting space. National Luna wall thicknesses range from 42mm to 60mm, and we recommend users wanting a full-time freezer choose from our 'thick wall' range (40, 55, 72, 80, 110 and 125 litre units) or 60 and 90 Twin which uses 'thick wall' insulation on the freezer side.
Better sealing – National Luna uses door seals that employ the same design as commercial fridges utilising an air pocket that inflates and seals using the difference in pressure between the cool inside air and warm outside air. Better sealing maintains lower temperatures with less power use. There's no thin rubber strip seals in a National Luna fridge!
These key features combine with all the other National Luna design elements and quality components to ensure the compressor can run for the shortest possible time which means low battery consumption and performance reserves for tough demands.
SIMPLY BETTER, SIMPLY SMARTER
Combining commercial quality and real performance with low battery consumption, National Luna fridge/freezers are right choice for anyone that's serious about buying a portable fridge/freezer. There are many reasons why: Metal construction – all National Luna fridge/freezers are built with external stainless steel walls and aluminium internal walls. The durability benefits over plastic fridges are obvious... but metal walls with integral cooling plates also give National Luna superior cooling, extra internal space, and high efficiency. A galvanised steel chassis forms the 'backbone' of every National Luna fridge and includes keyhole slots for use in conjunction with mushroom-head bolts and optional fixed baseplate for secure mounting without ropes or straps.
Danfoss compressors – German engineered and recognised as the most efficient portable fridge compressor in the world, National Luna uses genuine Danfoss compressors and controllers as the heart of the performance, but then design their own fan-assisted condensor, full wall plate evaporator system, control panel and interface for maximum efficiency and reliability.
Clever controls – National Luna fridges use Smart Compressor Control which automatically varies the speed of the compressor in order to conserve power and optimise performance. Selecting Turbo mode over-rides this function to cool even faster. National Luna fridges also feature clever power supply controls – 12/24v DC can be connected at the same time as built-in 240v AC, and National Luna fridge/freezers automatically use 240v AC when available and revert to DC if mains power goes off...great for overnight stays in remote stations where the generators are turned off late at night.
Digital thermostats – simply set the temperature average you need and the National Luna controls will cycle the fridge around this temperature no matter whether it is a hot day or cold night. No need to constantly adjust the fridge to avoid freezing the veggies or, even worse, risk warming the beer! After setting your desired temperature, the display reverts to showing you the internal cabinet temperature so you can see at a glance what is going on inside.
Low battery cut-out – adjustable and included on all models. On Weekender models the battery cut-out can be set using the built-in battery monitor indicators. When the battery cut-out is triggered, the compressor is stopped but the digital temperature display continues to show you internal temperatures so you are kept informed.
Handles and catches – heavy-duty ABS handles incorporate provision for tie-down straps, while lockable stainless steel catches ensure that the lid remains secure even on the roughest roads.
Solar panel friendly – by ensuring the lowest possible battery consumption through clever design and quality components National Luna fridge/freezers are ideally suited to solar applications.
3 Year Warranty – even with the best design and quality components things can sometimes go wrong. National Luna fridges carry a full three-year parts and labour warranty supported by a nationwide network of Authorised Service Agents. A warranty that will, if necessary, be honoured through any reputable refrigeration service company if you happen to be in a remote location. If you own a National Luna we'll strive to get you going again quickly and with a minimum of hassle.

Product Review:We have only used the fridge (60lt fridge/ freezer) once so far on a long weekend trip, so it hasn’t really been tested yet. But it has met our expectations so far.
Shopping with 4x4 Down Under: 4x4 have provided the best costumer service I have received from an internet purchase.
National Luna 60lt Fridge/Freezer
We bought this product on line from 4x4 Down Under and received great service, the fridge arrived at the front door in less than 5 days in perfect condition, we purchased a cover several weeks later. The cover wasn’t in stock but we were sent an email within 2 days apologising and letting us know we can cancel the order and wait till stock arrives. We kept the order and the cover arrived the following week.
Have had a Waeco CF-80 for 15 years without a problem. (been onsold) This new Evakool reaches temp (-15deg) in 30min and holds it much longer without cycling on again. Shame the app is no where as good. Made a number of attempts before giving up.
