A few years ago I bought one at auto zone that was magnetic for temporary use or it also had a hole where you could remove an oil pan bolt and fasten it permanently.

I found this forum from 5 years ago, where there's some info on heating pads. Someone wrote to www.padheaters.com and got an answer in which there was info on pricing:
Quote:
...
Discount for group orders?
2-5 is 15%
6-10 is 25%
11-25 35%


Shipping is extra and is based on the qnty. of heaters ordered.
If we ship each heater direct to the individual, the shipping cost is $9.00 usd for 1-2 heaters.
...
Group buy, anyone?
If this is still on, and others would also like a pad or two, then I'm interested in a 100-150 watt pad for 240 volts.

Can these be mounted on a transmission pan easily? Even if it's not flat? (checkered design) Would it be worth it on an automatic? I notice with the block heater now even with the engine warmed up the transmission still doesn't like to shift for a few miles.

I think an outfit called Wolverine makes/sells some also. There are smaller wattage heaters & a sizing chart.

Brucey,
They say you can mount them on a single curve (non-compound). I suppose it depends on the ratio of contact area to void area as to how well it sticks & transfers heat to your diamond pattern.

We'll have to see how many pads we will need, then see what we can negotiate. It may be cheaper to have one member buy them, then send them to everyone else, or give them at some ecomodder meet (ala HybridFest). Or maybe a second batch directly to Europe. I don't know about customs, it may be cheaper to receive them individually?

For the 240 volt batch, maybe it'll be cheaper without a plug, just the cable and bare wires? I'd have to cut the North American plug off anyway.

And I'll check if my transmission has a flat wall.

I'll see if get more info next week when I get back.

In a week or two I'll send some e-mails, for now I'd like to know more or less how many (and what kind) pads we'd like to order. If anyone is interested, then please say so, hopefully the more pads the easier it will be to get a rebate.

Hi,

Here you can find anything you migth need for warm up your car and charge up your battery everything at the same time

This is what we use here in cold Finland + eberbärsher or webasto...

DEFA Warmup

Pricey maybe, but I think best stuff on the market...

They have heaters at least almost any european car, but you can look if your car is covered also...
