The heater had a sticky velcro thing you can attach to your dashboard, and you can adjust the heater to blow anywhere you want it to blow. Pretty cool so far. It plugs into your cigarette lighter, and has a green light come on when the car turns on. I cranked it up, at first, it blew out 100% room temperature air. After about 30-45 seconds, I noticed some heat coming out. A tiny bit of heat, but certainly not would come out of a normal heater. After driving multiple times with this heater on (in 25 degree weather), I can say that it's better than nothing. It DOES blow out heat, but it's not going to make a huge difference in your car, if you want to replace normal heat. I understand that's not what this unit is for. I'm just giving my feedback.
For $10, this is definitely a smart investment, because I'm pretty sure this thing would raise the temp in my car from 25 to maybe 40 degrees. It's not going to make me comfortable, but it's going to get me by a few weeks just fine. There's no chance this little heater brings my car up to 70 when it's freezing out, but it does make SOME difference at least! 3 stars!
Update 1/3/10: After exactly 3 weeks of use, this heater blew my fuse. It was an annoyance, but I bought a 5-pack of 20 amp fuses for $3, and replaced it. So far, so good. We'll see how long it is before another fuse blows.Read more ›
Over the past few weeks I have had this heater, I have seen temps drop to -14 and this unit made my commute not only bearable but actually comfortable after about 8 minutes. There have been times when the outside temp was in the twenties that I have had to turn the unit off after 10 minutes or so because I was getting hot.
This unit does have a couple of disappointments however, there is not a variable speed fan or settings for heat, so you have to turn it off instead of being able to just turn it down, and the heat does not come out across the entire face of the unit just the left third or so.
I would give this heater a 3 1/2 but since there are not half stars I gave it a four. If you have a 20 amp power port in your car and need heat or just want a little extra heat before your car warms up this unit is great. Do not try to use a regular cigarette lighter plug though, it seems that is what those who had all of the problems were doing.
