When we visited Ken last week to charge at his place on our trip, he mentioned that a heated seat would be nice in the Mini E and probably use less power, thereby not reducing the driving range as much as the cabin heater.
Now, I like to brag that I don't use the heat on my 120 mile commute but I admit it is getting a little old. And it turns out there are many 12 volt electric blankets and heated seat cushions on the Internet for sale. The hard part is finding one that specifies the amount of power it draws. The Mini E has only one 12 volt outlet that I can find, which is limited to 200 watts.
Here are some that do specify power drain:
I think I am going shopping. I might have to retire my hot water bottle if one of these work. But then I won't be able to call myself a Manly Man anymore, using a sissy heater...
Does wearing wool underwear qualify one as a Manly Man?
