I bought this to heat my car because my heater went out. It does not heat the car at all and I would not recommend it.
dont waste your money!!! heat went out in my jeep around thanksgiving, dealer quated 1500 bucks to fix it. with xmas comming i thought this would be a cheap get me bye. I was way wrong. it arrived. plugged it into lighter. it smells like a bad toaster but dont put off enough heat to warm your fingers. comes with a piece of 2 sided tape for mounting that will not stick to anything. dont expect it to defrost your windshield either, plain and simple. IT JUST DONT WORK!!! between cost and shipping its the biggest waste of 40dollars i have ever made. please dnt waste your money. i would give then another 40 bucks to take it back. makes me mad to look at!!!!!
This product is not to be used as a replacement for your vehicles heater, rather it is used as a defroster for your windshield while waiting for your vehicle to heat up! It is great if you use it for that reason. If you use it for an actual car heater, you will be disappointed because that is not what it is made for!
I thought this was a HEATER! It`s a windshield defogger is all. This is too small to heat a car. I gave it to my daughter when her heater went out, she drives a Honda hatch-back. I thought it would heat the car, but it is not powerful enough to do so. Was very disappointed, as I am a concerned Mother, and wanted my daughter to be warm driving an hour to work on the coldest days of the year. I was let down. Almost mad about it. Don`t buy it if you want a heater. Buy it if you want a defogger.
This item does NOT put out enough heat to defrost your car let alone immediately heat your vehicle. I was hoping to use it for a heater and defroster, as said on package....but it does neither. Placed the item to my hand while on and it barely puts out any heat. Not good for use of either function it claims
I gave my Mom my old car, and the heater went out. The bill to fix it was over $700 and we couldnt afford that. I really felt bad that she was riding without heat and I didnt want her to get sick, So she drove it around a week while I searched every store I could think of for a car heater. Then I googled a car heater and was brought to this site. I read the reveiws and was skeptical on buying it, but My Mom has given no complaints. She says it heats the car and she stays warm...
I couldn't help but notice all the previous reviews complaining that this product doesn't heat their car. *This should not come as a surprise.* The alternator in your car (the thing that produces electricity) is only capable of generating around 1200W max (sometimes much less). This is for your whole car. Now consider that your average *hair dryer* uses 1800W. Starting to see the picture? This is why your car heater uses excess heat from the engine, not electricity, to heat your car.
My car heats alittle the heater core is going out. It works well enough to keep my windows from froging and adds a little more heat than it had before I got it.
Product does not heat up at all. I will attemp to return it
I can only see this working if you live in TX. It does not defrost your windows in any way whatsoever. It definitely is not an extra boost of heat in any way.
This heater blew out both of my car chargers.
My product worked for 5 minutes, then the fuse blew out. Make sure if you buy this product that your car can handle the 12 volts it takes to operate the heater.
This was the biggest waste of money, $30 for a fan
that never gets warm
This product is not worth the price. You have to be right on top of it to feel any heat. It comes with a peice of double stick tape the doesn't even stick to the heater let alone anything else. Think twice before you spend your money.
The heater puts out less heat than I thought it would. It would be nice to have a switch that turned it on or off rather than having to unplug it from the cig lighter. Also, a fan only mode would be nice. The unit vibrates making quite a rattling sound when on the dash. It does provide some help in defrosting the window. I have it in a 1973 VW bus which takes quite a while to sufficiently heat up to defrost windows, which was the reason I purchased the heater.
I bought one of these at Wal-Mart thinking that it might help heat the windshield a bit quicker...yeah right! I'd get more heat/air from blowing on the windshield than this thing! It is a total piece of junk, it *barely* puts out any air on just the fan and even less air/heat on the heat side of the rocker switch! I'd be better off buying an A/C converter and using a hair dryer than this piece of worthless junk! I can't think of anything a person could use this on to be worth paying any amount for it.
the heater burnt out one of my lighter and that cost me more then the heater! It barely kept my arm warm.
It doesn't work plug it in an nothing
It works slowly to clear ice from the inside of my windshield. You just have to allow yourself sometime. I use it along with a deicer because my heat in my vehicle doesn't work.
quit working 3 days after I received item, did not defrost the window
