Very interesting and quite useful product
on January 16, 2007
I got this for my husband, who dislikes cold winter days. Overall the heated seat is a good value for the money. The cable with cigarette lighter plug is quite long and will probably even make it to the back seats, if anyone wants the cushion there. The unit just plugs in and in about 2 minutes you have heat. There is no adjustment of heat, it just warms up gradually then stays there. On the plug there is a red light to show you it's working. There is no need to disconnect when turning off the car since the power is cut to the cigarette lighter. The only gripe I have is the way this seat is attached. There are rubber bands with plastic hooks at the top of the seat for hookup(can run around the headrest), then there are rubber bands on the sides(these can be run behind the seat, a bit short) and finally there is a rubber fitting underneath the seat, presumably to go over the seat. Seems in most cars this is useless, as most car seats are sitting on rails to move them back and forth and there is not enough clearance to use the rubber bands for secure fit. The only way to install is just to place the cushion on a seat, then hook up the upper bands and hooks, and then the same thing on the side. The seat cushion will move around somewhat, but it's not too bad. 4 stars because of the problem with attachment to seat. This product does not allow you to adjust the heat, so for heat sensitive, get a product with adjustment, although probably have to spend at least double. Also the cord comes out on the driver side door, so it has to go under the seat cushion to reach the cig. ligher. OK if on passenger side. Good, working product overall, does what it says. I would buy this product again.
