The TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator doesn’t require backup power as it will maintain its internal temperature between 36-46°F (2-8°C) for up to 6 days. The savings are significant:
Typical cost for Battery Backup Power
A $3100 USD battery backup power system will provide a typical mid-size vaccine refrigerator with 8-16 hours of runtime and as little as 4-8 hours for a larger vaccine refrigerator.
Costs related to Backup Generators
Another alternative is an automatic generator which has an initial capital cost, maintenance costs, and fuel costs to operate.
TempArmour™ refrigerators (and freezers) use significantly less power than other vaccine refrigerators.
Energy consumption of the TempArmour™ Refrigerator (Model BFRV84): 20 W/hr
