Vissani 9.9 Cu Ft Fridge

Seems to be a few threads with people trying to figure out the energy draw the Vissani 10cu ft fridge, no one can find a web site or find it in a online manual, so I was at Home Depot today and guess what I did??


Mystery solved!!

Thank you for being Jonny on the Spot with your handy dandy camera

If you've got your hands on one to examine (one of anything 110V electrical) these things can't be beat:

Kill-A-Watt Electricity Monitor-P4400 - The Home Depot

They tell you instantaneous usage, max startup surge current, they'll accumulate over a day or a week to give you a better idea of the average use, etc.

That is an excellent idea. This would quickly identify your electrical needs to help set up an appropriately sized battery bank.

I have one of these too. Very pleased. It runs quiet so far and is very efficient. Been a good while since I plugged it into my Kill A Watt, but I remember it never drew as much as the label rating.

That is a great gadget, but you'd have to buy the appliance before you can use it. (Unless of course, you can get the appliance peeps to leave you alone long enough to use it on the showroom floor! ;)

I'd think most salesmen/women would voluntarily let you plug in an energy monitor while looking at appliances.

Is this Vissani considered to be the most efficient?

No clue, but the energy tag said 39 bucks a year to run. Plus it's only 34 watts a day to run, easy on the battery bank! And it is 318 dollars right now at HD.
