Engel Digital Thermometer

Boy do I wish I had a fridge...

This got me thinking though. Could one use this to measure inside/outside temperature of their vehicle.

eg: it's 4 degrees outside, but thanks to my broken heater core, it's 4 degrees inside as well.

Cheers,
Brett

I wish I'd bought the ARB 42-quart frig, which comes with an integral thermometer, rather than my otherwise almost-identical Engel. I considered adding the Engel separate thermometer, but rather than mess with threading the probe wire through the lid seal, I opted for this:

Two wireless sensors (I use the second in an Engel cooler which sits next to the frig on my trailer), minimum/maximum temperature alarms, only $28.60.

That looks like a pretty good deal there. Yeah the cord thing would definately be kind of a bummer no matter where or how you have the sensor positioned.

The cold probably won't do very much for battery longevity on those wireless sensors however...

Yeah, that's an issue. The remotes are actually set up differently, one for frig temps (with alkaline batteries, rated down to -4F), the other for freezer temps (with lithium batteries, rated down to -22F). When the batteries in a remote need replacement, a low-battery icon appears in the main unit's display for that remote.
