Without a physical compressor, I would think they would use inductive cooling like a wine fridge, but those are not typically very powerful.

Would love to know as I am curious.
A few seconds. Not something I have ever thought about in almost 6 years of ownership.

Really? Itís about as painless as something can be. Iíve rented them for 20+ years for work, for road trips. Iím in and out of the corporate chain in 5 minutes. Best thing is they have the best road side. Iíve had a flat before where it needed a doughnut thrown on. I call in after I have changed the tire (I did not want to wait on a truck, it was offered) and arrange to swap cars on my trip. In my own vehicle Iíd have to find a tire shop, and dick with that for a few hours if I can find one along the way and if they are open.

You should say renting a car sucks for you. Itís easier than hitting the grocery store here.
