If the heater in the car is not what it was, then there's no need to put on an extra jacket. The ceramic in-car heater provides all the heat you want and fast. Just simply insert the plug into the car cigarette lighter plug and switch on. It can also help to quickly defrost your windscreen... could save you a fortune on de-icer.
Instant auxiliary heat
Fan and heat dual-control switch
Foldable handle design for window defroster
2m power cord with 15A in-line blade fuse
Brushless motor for noiseless operation
Detachable 360° swivel base
DC 12V operation

Having purchased this product last week , I would advise against buying it. Not very warm and very low power. Did not do the job! I know its only a fiver but spend it on something else.

Thanks. Was just about to order. Need something to warm the car up quickly on school run

Waste of money not fit for its purpose, Got 1 last winter hardly feel any heat also if u leave it on too long melted the fuse (wire gets hotter then the heater)

These things don't work check them out oN Amazon for buyers reviews,, its only a fiver if you want too try it out for yourself but my advise is save your money.

I posted this item in December I picked 1 up as my heater was broken in my car . I had lots of negative comments but I still went and got mine and I must say it was a waste of £4.99 it does blow hot air out but no way does it warm my car or help with keeping the window clear it is useless trust me it would take a week to defrost a wind screen it's pants I wish I had taken heed to all that commented on my posting of it as I even travelled a round trip of 52 miles to fetch it I was convinced from the description it would do the trick.

I did wonder if I could rig something up with a household fan heater. That has enough power and heat for the job. I was expecting better from the ceramic heater was very very poor.

The cigarette lighter plug is normally fused to 15 amp so the maximum power that can be drawn is 180 watts. It doesn't matter what time of heater you use the just the laws of phyics that with such a low wattage it will take a long time to heat up the interior of the car.

Better, if you park overnight in your own driveway, is a mains extension lead and 2kw fan heater. Put the heater inside the car 5 or 10 minutes before you leave and the inside will remain toasty warm long enough for the cars own heating system to warm up. Any ice on the windscreen will just wipe away because ice can't stick to warm glass.

Here is a link for an inverter which will enable you to plug a 1kW heater into your car battery. I'm guessing it'll flatten a car battery within a few minutes!

Plus 1

I do this every night, just wire the fan heater up through the boot, car up against garage doors, flick the power switch inside, and hey presto, car is warm, ice is melted!

Voted cold because that is what you will remain if you buy this.

Friends car heater is broken and he bought one of these as a workaround.

Having car shared with him a few times, I can safely say you can generate more warm air by breathing out than this heater can.

Save your money.

Waste of £5, might as well set fire to a £5 note it would be more cost effective!!!

This is one of the best things about HUKD - helpful info and shared experiences that benefit other members. I must say the heater sounded like a good idea to me so I'm thankful I read these comments and didnt waste my money.
