WHY HAS ENGEL SPENT
50 YEARS AS AUSTRALIA’S
NUMBER ONE?
Engel has been the leading provider of portable
fridge-freezers in Australia for 50 years. So what
is it that makes Engel Australia’s number one?
1. Engel has the unique super efficient Sawafuji swing motor, with only one
moving part, making it simply the most efficient motor available. The motor is
self lubricating, works at 100% efficiency even at an angle of 30 degrees,
and will keep running even as low as 10 volts.
2. An Engel is built strong, tough and made to last. The solid steel cabinet
means the Engel can handle the knocks and bumps of off-road driving, plus
you know it’s not going to warp or twist in the Aussie heat.
3. Efficiency is also about the Engel’s lowest maximum power draw. Don’t be
fooled by those who quote averages and figures that are false. The 40 litre
Engel has a maximum power draw when the motor is cycling on of less than
2.6 amps. No other brand can match this.
4. Simple and easy to operate controls. No fancy bells and whistles but a
single dial knob to select the desired temperature. And now, even simpler with
an easy to set digital control!
Paul Worsteling
from IFISH
5. Easy power options - Tri voltage (240 Volt, 12 volt and 24 volt) standard
and built in on most models in the range. Plus the benefit of having both the
12volt and 240 volt cords plugged in at the same time for convenience when
you stop and switch power source.
6. Research and development done in Australia in some of the harshest
conditions and roughest terrain in the world means when you take your fridge
into these conditions you can be confident it will work and it will last.
7. Engel has a fantastic network of committed dealers and service agents who
can and will help with any problem. All parts of the Engel are replaceable,
plus all Engel fridge freezers come with a 3 year warranty.
8. Engel also stock a fantastic range of Engel Accessories from Solar to
Generators, from leads to wiring harnesses, from slides to storage.

ENGEL’S World Famous
Sawafuji Swing Motor
All Engel fridge-freezers are powered by the unique Sawafuji
Swing Motor. Japanese technology at its best, the Sawafuji
Swing Motor has only one moving part. The piston connects
to an electro dynamic device which is powered by the use of
magnetic fields. This technology means no need for bearings,
cranks or con-rods; and less moving parts means less chance
of failure. The Motor does not need to perform a full stroke
on start up unlike many rotary type compressors; meaning
it doesn’t have a high start up current draw. Low friction loss
adds to its efficiency. The Motor operates at 30 degree angles
and on rough corrugated tracks without losing any efficiency,
making it the most effective choice of motor for Engel.

EMMA GEORGE
ON TENTING IT WITH KIDS
T
aking the kids bush, sleeping in a tent and forgoing life’s
creature comforts may be a daunting prospect for some but
camping is one of the most rewarding and fun activities you
can do with your kids. Camping provides the ideal opportunity
to get the family outdoors, away from computers and internet,
allowing kids to star in their own adventures, interact with
nature and create lifelong memories.
If you are new to camping, don’t panic as getting away for
a couple of days is actually pretty easy, with a bit of forward
planning and the right equipment you can be sleeping under
the stars and sitting around a campfire with ease. In regard
to equipment, you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune
the first time you go camping. It is important to gauge if
your family enjoys it before spending hundreds of dollars on
expensive gear you may only use a couple of times. A tent is
a prerequisite (bought or borrowed) plus some sleeping gear
with a few kitchen essentials and you are almost there. Once
you have the basic set up, then camping trips become a very
low cost holiday and if your kids are like mine, one of their
favourites.
Planning is an integral part of a successful trip and it’s
necessary to consider location, weather and facilities then
pack accordingly. You don’t want to camp in the middle of
winter without enough bedding and warm clothes or expect to
have cooking facilities then arrive at your chosen spot to find
you have no means to cook dinner.
Left: Rain often means mud and fun – don’t forget those
extra clothes!
14
When out camping, its a great opportunity to
slow down and spend quality time together.
Planning your trip
Location: Work out how far you want to drive,
where you want to camp such as bush, river or
beach. For first time campers, I would suggest
something closer to home with facilities as
you don’t need to pack or purchase as much
equipment. National Park campgrounds are a
good start as they are generally well maintained
and often have rangers nearby.
Always bring sufficient amounts of water for
drinking, cooking and washing. If there is water
available, play it safe and still carry drinking
water.
Camping provides the opportunity to spend
quality time with our children, get away from
the household chores, watch the stars, enjoy the
tranquillity and have time to do the simple things
together and bond as a family. It’s been proven
that children who experience nature are happier
and healthier. When in the bush, kids can have
free range to climb trees and the freedom to
explore.
Weather: It is imperative to pack according to
weather conditions. When it is hot, camping can
be arduous if there is no water to cool off in. If it
is winter and rainy, ensure you have packed tarps
for shelter and plenty of clothes for the kids.
So take the plunge, get that tent and put aside a
weekend. If you forget a few things, remember
Facilities: There are a lot of great campsites
them for next time but most importantly pack a
these days that have communal camp kitchens
sense of fun and adventure.
providing essentials such as gas cookers, lighting,
running water and even kitchen sinks. This is a
10 tips for successful camping with kids
great place to start because you don’t have to
1. Get kids involved with planning and packing
purchase or bring as much equipment. Toilets are
generally provided (they may be composting) but 2. Make a list as you don’t want to forget
they do make life easier, especially when you
something when you are miles away from home
have kids.
and shops
Equipment: Once you have your gear (bought
or borrowed), ensure you know how it all works
before you leave home. Practice setting up
your tent in the back yard and even sleep a
night in it with the kids. Make sure you take a
well-stocked first aid kit and check torches, pack
spare batteries, cooking equipment and sleeping
arrangements – do you need an air pump for
your mattress? Once you are fairly comfortable
with the logistics, it is time to think about exactly
what you need to pack. Again this will depend
on your location and the facilities, duration of trip
and the distance from the nearest shop.
The three main prerequisites are the same it has
been for centuries - food, shelter and water. The
simpler the approach, the easier it is to pack, set
up and maintain camp. For a few days with the
kids, simple meals are easiest. That means more
time for spotlighting at night, less dishes for the
kids to wash and more fun.
A good quality esky with ice will suffice for a few
days and once you catch the camping bug, save
your pennies for an Engel fridge.
Million dollar views for a fraction of the price,
although the baths are a little small.
A good quality esky is a great
investment as it can be used at
home as well as out camping.
3. Know where you are going and arrive in
daylight hours
4. Pick a level site away from water gullies if rain
is forecast
5. Have children help with setting up camp, it
gives them a sense of responsibility and they will
get better and more helpful each time
6. Leave electronic games and iPads at home, let
kids create their own games as camping is about
discovering outdoors
7. Stay calm, even when the tent is wet and
falling down – it’s all part of the experience
8. Try not to over plan and overschedule, it’s
meant to be relaxing
9. Let kids explore, climb trees and get muddy –
that’s what camping is all about
10. Bring a torch for everyone as night walks and
hide and seek in the dark are a highlight.

Never too young to start
camping, Austin at just
8-weeks-old experienced
his first campfire and

PORTABLE POW
FOR YOUR ENGEL
ENGEL BATTPAKS
28 & 56 AMP HOUR
The Engel Battpak is a portable deep cycle
dual battery system for powering your Engel
Portable Fridge - Freezer and Accessories, in
& out of your vehicle.
•The BATTPAK is designed for use primarily with the
range of ENGEL portable fridge-freezers, but can
be used with almost all portable fridge-freezers
and a large variety of 12 volt appliances.
•The BATTPAK is designed to be charged via the 12
volt charge lead supplied.
•Press the MOMENTARY button on the control panel
of the BATTPAK and the volt gauge will indicate its
state of surface charge.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES: 12VDCBATTCHARGER
The Engel 12VDCBattcharger is an electronic battery
charger designed to charge Lead Acid Batteries from
a 12 volt DC Battery. The charger uses a unique boost
charge feature, stepping up to a charge rate allowing
the auxiliary battery to properly charge and with its
voltage sensing feature ensuring the main battery
charge is not depleted while the vehicle is not running.
The12VDC Battcharger will charge your BATTPAK at up
to 10 Amps.
CHARGING FROM CHARGE LEAD SUPPLIED
The LED will flash when charging is in progress and
will TRICKLE charge your BATTPAK at approximately 2
to 4 Amps. The rate of charge will drop as the level of
charge increases.
CHARGING WITH 240 VOLT / SOLAR PANELS
We recommend a 6 to 8 Amp Automatic (floating and
regulated) type 240 Volt mains battery charger. You
will need to purchase a male single pole Hella plug
to replace the alligator clips supplied with the battery
charger, making sure the red lead is positive and the
black is negative. Solar Panels can be used to charge
your BATTPAK but must be regulated, with a maximum
output of 8 Amps.
SMART BATTERY BOX
Engel has now introduced the Smart Battery Box that
suits any type of car or marine battery. The Smart
Battery Box has several outlets to run a variety of
appliances and inputs to allow you to charge from
various sources. Fully portable and suitable for any
vehicle. The standout feature of The Engel Smart
Battery Box is the Time Tracker Battery Management
Screen. This screen gives you current battery
condition, percentage of battery capacity available,
number of hours till battery reaches full charge, the
current stage of the charging cycle, battery type
selection and set up details.
WER OPTIONS
TRI VOLTAGE
All Engel fridge-freezers (excluding MD14E chest &
SB47 upright) have an inbuilt tri voltage (12/24/240v)
power supply which allows you to operate from either
car accessory sockets or mains power without the
need for an adaptor.
Although Engel has the lowest power consumption of
any portable fridge-freezer on the market, operating for
extended periods off your car battery could lead to a
flat battery. Therefore alternate power sources may be
sought. If you are on the move, careful management of
your battery power can allow you to successfully enjoy
a holiday with one battery.
Options for reserve power include dual battery
systems, Engel Battpaks, solar panels or a generator.
GENERATOR
When you want to stay indefinitely in the one spot
it is best to invest in a portable generator or a solar
panel system. Engel fridge-freezers have such minimal
power consumption even a small generator will do the
job. And now most of these generators are whisper
quiet and guaranteed not to annoy the neighbours.

OUTBACK TRAVEL TIPS
For a day trip along the beach close to
home or for a longer journey whether
that’s a year long extravaganza
around Australia or the world, prior
preparation and planning will always
help you overcome any difficulties
and unplanned occurrences.
Ensure your vehicle battery and
the auxillary battery are in tip top
condition when you leave on a trip
so you’ll have no problems keeping
the food cool and the beer cold in
your Engel fridge. Batteries mounted
close to an exhaust or turbo really
suffer from the heat and will need to
be replaced more often!
What’s best? A solar panel kit
or a small generator? Both have
advantages and both will help keep
your Engel Fridge running when you
are stopped for days on a magical
beach or desert waterhole. Solar
panels aren’t great when its cloudy
and need to be kept pointed at the sun
to be most efficient. Generators need
to be kept supplied with fuel and can
be a little noisy but will consistently
provide more power to the battery as
well as run power tools and a lot of
other electrical equipment apart from
the Engel fridge.
When heading bush always carry a
jerry can of water for both you and
your vehicle. It is better to carry water
in a couple of smaller containers than
in one big one. Never leave home
without it!
Never join two snatch straps by using
a D-shackle. If one strap breaks you’ll
have a deadly missile flying through
the air, which can easily punch
through a window, sheet metal and/
or kill someone.
A good remote area first aid kit should
be in every vehicle when you head
off on a trip. There should also be
someone who knows how to use it
and preferably, someone who has
done a St Johns first aid course (see:
www.stjohn.com.au). The life that
could be saved could be yours or your
loved one.
7
Don’t try and save money
by taking the shoddiest set of
tyres bush. It’s not only unsafe when
you are travelling at high speeds on
bitumen and dirt roads, but in four
wheel drive country you’ll have a lot
less traction and get more punctures
– remember, 90% of punctures occur
in the last 10% of a tyre’s life. And
replacing tyres in a country town is
always dearer than buying tyres in a
major city!
Always carry basic recovery
gear – a long-handled shovel,
a jack and jacking plate, an
axe, a snatch strap and a couple
of D-shackles. Ensure the D-shackles
are rated with a ‘safe working load’
(SWL) and that your snatch strap is in
good condition.
8
Tyre
pressures
(measured
when cool) are the single most
important thing to be aware of
when four wheel driving. In a normal
4WD vehicle with 15 to 17 inch
tyres loaded for a trip on the bitumen,
tyre pressures should be around
36psi (250kPa). On dirt roads lower
tyre pressures to around 30-32psi
(210kPa- 225kPa). When on a rough
4WD track for the best traction lower
tyre pressures to 24-26psi (165kPa180kPa). When heavily loaded for a
desert crossing similar tyre pressures
will be required. On a beach, start
of at 18-20psi (125kPa-140kPa).
You’ll be able to go lower if you get
bogged, but be very careful if you are
down to 12psi (85kPa) or so. Always
carry a tyre gauge and a good
compressor.
9
Lastly, a satellite phone or a
HF radio, or one of those new
fangled gadgets, a satellite
GPS Messenger called, ‘Spot’ (see:
www.findmespot.net.au), will allow
you to tell people where you are and
how you are in case of an emergency.
Somebody in your group should have
one – normal mobile phones and UHF
radios very often don’t work where
4WD adventurers go!

JO CLEW’S TIPS
FOR A TOP NOTCH
F
irst of all I never leave home without my Engel firmly secured
into my vehicle, even if it’s only just a trip to town its always there
and just recently my 40 litre proved its worth when my partner
and I catered for 16 men for two days along the Fortesque River
in the Pilbara in Western Australia and we had only the Engel
and a couple of ice boxes to keep all the food fresh.
I suspect I am not alone when it comes to having the Engel
permanently mounted in the vehicle and even if the trip is not
long many will have found that the Engel is fantastic to keep the
groceries fresh, the ice cream frozen and the bottle of bubbly
cold for the trip home from the shops.
Storage containers are one thing I have struggled with over the
years and I have tried many and varied options and all have
been deficient in some way, the Engel Lock and Lock containers,
or Mantupperware, that I have been using for the last couple of
years have proven to be almost indestructible and the best thus
far. I have one to house all the cutlery, a large one for utensils,
a roll of foil, plastic wrap the sharp knives, matches, salt and
pepper and anything else that can squeeze in, one for small
bottles and packets of herbs and spices others for the coffee, tea
and sugar. Because they fit so well into my 40litre Engel I then
have a range of sizes that pack neatly into the fridge. I don’t
buy small bottles or single serve packs of olives and sundried
tomatoes and the like, not only is it a more expensive way to
go but it creates more rubbish to be disposed of. So I buy large
bottles or vacuum packs and transfer them to their own Lock and
Lock container before leaving home, that way there will be no
breakages or spills to clean up.
It’s no wonder it can be confusing deciding what to have in your
camp kitchen when there seems to be new gadgets and gizmos
emerging on the camping store shelves every week so here are
some tips to help you on your way to having your perfect camp
cooking set up. The best way to find out what will work for you,
is to observe, take a peek into lots of other peoples camp kitchen
set ups and take away ideas to use for yours.
Camping stores, camping magazines, four wheel drive accessory
shops and camping shows are a great place to start, but before
you outlay any money though have a good look through
your cupboards at home and amass a collection of cooking
equipment, utensils and storage containers that you no longer
use on a regular basis, you will be surprised at what you find.
26
H CAMP KITCHEN
Then hit the op shops, they have amazing
collections of cutlery, containers and pots and
pans that cost very little and it won’t matter as
much if they get destroyed or lost.
Planning and preparation, oh I know they are
boring and conjure up images of Girl Scouts
and most of us like the romantic notion of
spontaneously jumping in the car and taking off
for a few days to get away from it all.
Sometimes the best laid plans can be no plans but
in some cases they can also be a bit of a disaster.
Lists, glorious lists can make the difference
between remembering the totally useless and
forgetting the absolute necessities and not just
one but multiple.
The tucker box list: this includes all foods that are
non-perishable and come in cans jars or packets.
The Engel list: food like dairy, eggs and meats
that cannot survive without being kept cold.
The dry icebox list: things like fruit and vegetables
that don’t require refrigeration but still require
a sturdy cool environment to extend their life,
potatoes, carrots, onions, apples and oranges all
make this list.
The cook ware and utensils list: includes things
like baking dishes, peeler, masher, gloves for the
camp fire, can opener, sharp knife, plates to eat
off, cutlery and all the other equipment you will
need to prepare and serve your food.
Finally the cooking equipment list: includes camp
oven, gas stove, gas bottle and hose, heat
beads or charcoal, fire lighters and matches and
anything else you will need to cook your food. I
have a sturdy fold up plastic table, a small metal
topped one for hot things and a couple of chairs
to make my camp kitchen comfortable.
Even when I am not catering for a mass of hungry
campers I find that menus are a must, even if you
are only heading off for a few days, being able
to lay your hands on all the right ingredients for
what you want to prepare and know exactly
what you will be eating during the day takes all
the stress out of feeding the mob. Menus should
be simple and above all they should be familiar
recipes that are as easy to replicate, with minimal
equipment in the bush, as they are at home with
a whole kitchen at your disposal.
Another tip that you may already know of is if
there is to be only one cook for your trip, and
this is sometimes just easier, then let them do their
job, chances are if they have put their hand up
to do the cooking then they probably enjoy doing
it and will make nice meals, so don’t complain
and be grateful someone else is happy to do the
cooking for you. By all means help with the cleanup and always make yourself available to wash
dishes and be sure to keep the cook happy and
the camp will be happy.
As a matter of interest for those who might need
a bit of help in what temperatures are best suited
to different foods in your Engel here is a bit of a
rough guide to help you out.
2-4 degrees is fine for all refrigerated goods dairy
products, meat, cold meats, fruits and vegetables
and even the lettuce shouldn’t freeze.
One degree to minus one is perfect if the fridge is
being used strictly for drinks and if you are using
your Engel as a freezer then minus seven to minus
ten is great for red meat, fish and chicken.
Keeping a track on how the temperatures are
going is as easy as the next time you are near
an Engel distributor stop in and get one of their
battery operated temperature gauges.
Sometimes life can be sweet, have safe happy
travels and good times.
