Question

good as a block heater?

I have a car that doesn't come with a block heater. Would this be a good product to buy so that I can actually start my car on those cold mornings?
If it isn't, what would be a better product to use?

Before you buy this unit, try using any small iron magnet to see if it sticks to the block or oilpan of your engine. If the magnet doesn't stick, the heater won't either...because your engine block/oilpan is made of aluminum. In that case, you should get a block heater installed.

as long as your motor has an iron block, i'd put it low on the block, just above the oil pan... if the pan is aluminum it will get warm as well. a warm block means warm oil. warm oil hitting a freezing cold block wont stay warm too long.

If you own block heater-less Smart car like me, this will not work for you as the oil pan is aluminum and the magnet won't stick.

A block heater would be slightly better, you can get a after market block heater usually at CT, most shops install them as well for around only $100.This is still good because you can mount it on almost any metal. A good place to put this would be the oil pan or if you could find a good spot where it will be able to heat the coolant.

It will not get the oil hot enough to boil the water out, so the answer to your question is no. The oil will dissipate the heat quicker than the product can create it at a temperature near boiling.

Depends on the oil and the physical size of the tank. Results will vary..

A Booster Pack or Power Inverter will not give enough power to supply a 110v block heater.

The magnet on these are really strong kinda like the ones on the key boxes that you hide under your car, but as far as leaving it there permanetly your risk damaging it by hitting it on things like curbs and such.

Melt ice on sat. dish ?

Thinking of mounting it on back of a small Sat. dish, would plugging it in for less than an hour melt the ice and prevent having to climb up to access the dish.

It is really hard to say but I would like to say no, it is meant to heat fluids which because it is a fluid transfers the heat different than a solid, however the spot it is mounted on will have no ice, but as far as the heat spreading not sure.

This heater will not work with a 2001 Honda CR-V. The block and oil pan on a CR-V are aluminum, but the magnet on the heater will only work on a steel block or pan. We recommend a non-magnetic heater.

This magnetic heater will not affix to the engine block, as it is non-magnetic. If the oil pan is made of steel rather than aluminum, it will work, but otherwise we recommend a non-magnetic heater.

Unfortunately, the engine block and oil pan of a 2003 Sunfire are made of aluminum, and are therefore non-magnetic. We recommend a non-magnetic heater.

It should be placed on your oil pan. However, you should first check whether your pan is steel or aluminum; if it is aluminum, the magnet will not stick, and we recommend a non-magnetic block heater.
