Does anyone use a wine cooler for hibernation?

Postby MandyDyke » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:40 am

Hello, I've previously used a medical fridge which has excellent temperature stability. However, I am still concerned about the noise level, despite reassurances from other forum users, (see my previous posts). Has anyone successfully used a wine cooler and if so, can they supply details of the make and model number? Thanks, Mandy

If you don't get any positive suggestions, but go shopping yourself, be warned. Double-check how low the cooler will go. I bought one once but had to take it back because it wouldn't go as cold as 5*C.

Hi

I actually have a small drinks fridge which I bought for hibernation and which is unused, but now inboxed...I would like to sell it. If your tort is small, it would be good, but mine became a little too big....hence bigger box needed ....and bigger fridge!

Let me know if you are interested.
