how much cheaper ? 90p after delivery which you have to wait till next week to receive?
I paid £250 as an optional extra on my TT for these. So my comparison these are an absolute bargain. Hot.
Especially handy fort those with uheated leather seats.
Anyone have the amazon link? Still useful if approx the same price as not everyone has an aldi nearby..

Reading the reviews, the amazon one is wired and set up for a UK passenger seat rather than drivers and will also drain your battery if left plugged in. I have unheated leather seats so would love one but I know I would forget to unplug it and end up with a flat battery every morning
But most UK cars the cigarette lighter switches off when the keys are out now anyway ?

They are classed as aux sockets now and most remain on when ignition is switched off, for charging phones laptops when parked.
if I had a car I'd definitely get one of these
The number of people that jump in my car and comment on the heated seats I can't count. Mine are built in to the XC90 so I can't tell you anything about these ones but I might get them for the other car if they are any good.
I'm guessing at this price the aux power lead is set up for LHD cars? I.e. the power lead comes off the right hand side of the seat.
I didn't even know you could get this sort of thing until now, trouble is, how would you power three or four, if I bought one just for the drivers seat I'd get loads of grief
I have just bought one for my classic mini (errr yes, its fitted with unheated leather seats from a fiat coupe)....

The cushion fits by sliding over the seat, two elastic straps round the bit that supports your back. You then have four elastic bits with little hooks on that you secure to the underside of your seat to stop the cushion moving.

The cable comes off in the middle of the car (by the handbrake and seat buckle area) so ive just run the cable down the exhaust tunnel and upto my 12v socket.

My 12v sockets are wired to go OFF with IGN OFF. So no flat battery.

On the cable there is a HI OFF LO switch. you could just turn to OFF aswell to be safe/peace of mind.

Hope this helps!

PS. I got some stubby spanners for £7.99 too, look ok quality, handy for spares.

max wattage
Becareful, you could be ending up blowing up the very main fuse while you are driving at night and it will not warn you. If you insist using it, then make a direct wiring from the battery and fused. Do not trust, UNSAFE

Why would it do that ???
Is fused in the aux plug socket on the seat warmer - that should blow first as lower wattage than main fuse - otherwise you could say that about anything you plug in

I might have exagerated, a little anyway, these kind of thinks are usually working up to the very limit of the aux socket amperage and thererefore I would strongly recommend a separate wiring with his own fuse and then direct in to the battery. Some cars might also have multi use fuses and I would be not amazed if your lights will just switch off at once if the fuse is overloaded. Anyway, should be OK if they sell it to be plugged that way but if comes from China or nearby, do not trust, chances are that they might make false claims about the real output and soon or later can give problems. Avoid to use splitters to plug few things at one time.

Bought one yesterday... literally HOT oO
No car I know off uses the same fuse for lights and 12v socket. That would be madness and no car manufactuer would do this from factory. Im sure theres also a legal thing under C+U regs that headlights should be fused individually.

My wiring in my classic mini is my own loom and fuses etc. I have had no problems what so ever with any aux device, the seat works wonderfully.
