Default Re: 12V Window Defroster

I bought a 20$ device last winter and it gave up after less than 2 weeks.
The heater coil inside gave up. The one I bought was designed like a hair
dryer with thin coils. Thus any vibrations or knocking around probably did
not help. They aren't powerful also And honestly, I doubt it will suffice to
cover your windshield. Also, since they are made for car use, they don't
heat up that much. Probably for security reasons. Anyway, there might just
be better heaters around, hope you find a good one if they exist.
