Hi Nadir,

I used to leave it on 1.5 with good results. 2 or higher and things started getting frozen and the beer slushy. A beer was always a good barometer for my ideal temp, actually. I would put it a bit higher when I loaded it up and left on the trip knowing I'd be driving for a while, then when everything was nice and cold, dial it back to 1.5.

It does have a lid lock, but I never had any issues with it.

It does need power all the time. I'd keep it in the back of my truck hooked up to an outlet that was hot all of the time. With the Optima Yellow top, I never did have any problems, but I do carry one of those inexpensive battery jumpers as I only have one battery for now.

Hope this helps.
