Freezer

Average Storage Time During Power Failure

At 19 hours, the ART 6500 has a fairly standard storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to this fridge freezer.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 19h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available including cheaper fridge freezers such as the BAAN12 (£318), or the BIAAA 12 both from Indesit.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the New World IFF70 (£343) (20h and cheaper), or the Beko BC 732 (£289) (20h and cheaper).
