I got the 75L Smitty Built cooler in my Lightning. It has a 120V I plugged into bed. Charges cooler battery and runs compressor while I drive. Cooler will operate for 8 hours on battery alone. I really like this setup. No more ice.

Cannot shift Lightning out of park until confirming that something is plugged into bed. This must be done at all start ups. Also must select to send power to outlet. Finally power does not continue to flow when vehicle is turned off. So to fully charge I leave Lightning on with lights and screen off to save battery.
I did the math and a full Lightning battery will run cooler for 3 months.

All the confirmation prompts are annoying, but Pro Power for cooler is awesome. On my month long camping trips, My Bouge RV cooler is always on, while driving and in camp. For short stops for food etc, I leave the truck off, as it stays cold fine then
