Battery Charge and Engine Cranking Power

As the temperature gets colder, your engine not only requires more power to start, but it also receives less power from the battery. As you can see in the chart above, your battery's power drops to 65-percent of its normal capacity at the freezing point. At this same temperature, the engine needs 65-percent more cranking power than it would normally need in 80-degree weather. By using this thermal wrap on your battery you can ensure that the battery will maintain the same amount of power that it has in warm temperatures. As a result, your engine will get the cranking power that it needs to help ensure a successful startup.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


When my battery heater went out on my Generac 20KW stand by generator, I used this heater from E trailer used thermostat and wire connector from old unit they were still good, Generac wants about $80.00 for new this is much more economical.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Already had one and it works great, really helps save your battery on cold days and makes starting/cranking speeds faster instead of the slow crank you get when your battery is cold, i consider it a must have for winter where we get to -20 easily. The last one I got was from another site and cost at least 20% more there, so definitely happy I could get the same product for cheaper here.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Have bought two Kat's battery heaters over the past 5 years. Both worked fine for a year or two and then burned out-quit working. Am on my third now from another company. Worked fine till they didn't. Am going out today and check on the new one. 20 F tonight. Have it on backup generator.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Just as advertised. This Kat's battery heater will be keeping the battery warm in a whole house backup generator for when it gets real cold here in northern Wisconsin. It's connected to a thermostatic switch that's set to turn on at 10 degrees.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


We placed this unit into a Generac 20kw standby generator. Unit is controlled by a thermo switch on at 0 degrees F / off at 30 degrees F. Works fine to keep the unit ready for any power outage. We used a piece of 1/4" coated plywood between the heater and the battery to prevent overheating the battery bottom. This is the 5th similar installation. Others have been in service for 6+ years.

good product to keep the battery warm in severe winter climate

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Heats up well and keeps battery's warm, just the ticket for diesel pickup trucks on sub zero days. Combined with a block heater even the coldest mornings are no trouble.


Comments
I have two of these on my Ram 3500 4x4 they still work fine after one year. I did not put the pad under the battery, I put a piece of aluminum between my battery insulating cover and the heater pad and placed it on the side of the battery. i was worried rough roads and washboards would cause slight battery movement and short it out if it was under the battery.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Very good product. Worked fiawlessly. Used it for a re-conditioned battery which begins to freeze @ about 15 - 16 F. Kept it from freezing overnight on several nights. Also purchased a battery pad heater for another car with a slightly larger battery. The pad heater did the same thing perfectly. If you live in the northern parts of the US and want to use re-conditioned batteries (Epsom salt & distilled water) over the winter, these heaters are essential for protection from freezing. Thanks etrailer.

I installed this battery blanket right after I received it and had our first sub-freezing temps shortly afterwards. You can definitely tell the difference when cranking over the motor. Works as I had hoped it would.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Jonathon at eTrailers help me verify this product would work in a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD 2.0T.

Installation was done by a 3rd party for free.

We've had days of -20 to -30 C weather a few times now this winter. Works as it should.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Great heater, works as advertised. Fit my 98 Jeep Xj perfectly. I bought it last year to try and salvage a week cranking battery when it was cold. Well, a year later I'm wrapping up the same battery for the cold months ahead! Save the strain on your bat with a Kat!

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


The product is exactly what I ordered. Three day shipping didn't turn out so well but, etrailer refunded my shipping for three day. That's very good customer service. I'll order from them in the future.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


Block heater gets hot when plugged in not installed. It will burn your hand. The battery wrap does heat up nicely. I have not installed them but assume they will work just fine.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


The battery warmers I ordered from etrailer was just what I needed to protect my boat batteries from the ice cold temperatures this past winter, since I couldn't store them inside. They worked perfectly with an thermal switch.
Thank you etrailer for a great product.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


This company has been VERY customer friendly during the entire order process. The shipment was delayed and they contacted me personally with an alternative if I didn't want to wait for the original item. Item actually arrived sooner than expected.
Item worked as described and I would do business with them again.

Review from a similar Battery Pad in Vehicle Heaters


The battery warmer gets quite hot it seems. I intend to run this without a timer overnight. Is this going to burn out running for 12 hours at a time


Comments
This Kats Heaters battery wrap is intended for cold-weather use when outside temperatures are below freezing. The installation instructions indicate that is is not safe to operate the battery heater when outside temperatures are above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. I would recommend a timer, as an added safety precaution.

Ask the Experts about this Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters

  • Can Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap # KH22300 be Used for Extended Periods of Time
    Yes, you can keep the Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap # KH22300 plugged in for an extended period of time like you mentioned.
    view full answer...
  • Availability of Thermal Battery Wrap for Truck
    We have thermal wraps for batteries available. You will want to measure the dimensions of your battery though to pick out the correct one. Most likely the part # KH22300 would be your best option as it is for batteries that have an area of 72 inches around them. But if not I attached a link to a page that has all of the heaters we offer. You can select the best fitting size from the filters.

  • Battery Warmer Availability that is Longer than 70 inches
    We do have a longer than 70 inch battery warmer. We have the part # KH22300 which is 72 inches long.

  • Battery Heater for Group 31 Battery
    We do have a battery heater designed for your Group 31 battery, part # KH22500, which has the same 60-watt rating as the other item you referenced. Heater # KH22500 DOES NOT have a thermostat; it will continue to warm the battery as long as it is plugged in to your AC outlet. Kats recommends unplugging heaters when the ambient temperature is 32-degrees and above. The Kats Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap # KH22300 is meant for larger diesel truck batteries which is why it is a full 72-inches long.

  • Largest Available Battery Heater
    We have a large selection of battery heaters, which I have linked below, that are designed to work with certain size/model batteries. In terms of physical size the largest heating pad style heater we have is the Kat's # KH22600 which measures 18 inches long, 11 inches wide, and is designed for Series 8D automotive batteries. For a thermal wrap style heater the largest we have is the Kat's # KH22300 that has a 72 inch length. It is designed for diesel automotive batteries. If you can...

  • Correct Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap for 52" Battery
    For starters, the battery wrap does not need to cover the entire battery. It can still be effective with only partial cover. The best option we have for a battery which measures 52" around is the Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap part # KH22200 which measures 36". The next size up is 72" which is too large and cannot be overlapped.

  • Kats Heater Compatibility with Propane Tank for Ice House
    The Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap for Diesel Truck Batteries - 125V - 160 Watt # KH22300 is what I recommend. It will wrap around your tank and you can leave it plugged in all the time. The magnetic style heater like # KH1155 you mentioned will only touch 8 square inches of a completely flat surface, so I don't believe it is the best option for your application. Although these also can stay plugged in, the surrounding aspect of the battery wrap will be a better option.

  • Battery and Oil Heater Recommendation for Detroit Diesel Engine
    If you wanted a battery heating pad for underneath the battery you'd want the part # KH22600 that you referenced or if you were looking for something that wraps around it you'd want the part # KH22300. If I were you I'd go with the wrapped style of heater unless you don't have the room for it. The best option we have for an engine heater would be a pad that attaches to the oil pan like the part # KH26150. Using a pad like this with a battery heater would make cold start ups MUCH easier...

  • Length of Kats Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap # KH22200
    The Kat's Heaters Thermal Battery Wrap # KH22200 referenced in your question is designed for Series 24, 24F, 27, 27F, and 74 automative batteries. The wrap measures 36 inches long. Keep in mind that if it's not an exact fit, the excess can simply be wrapped around again. You will simply wrap this heater around your vehicle's battery and plug it into a 125V AC outlet. It will do a great job of maintaining its charge and ensuring that the engine turns over on those cold winter mornings....

  • Installation of Kat's Heater Thermal Battery Wrap
    The Kat's Heaters Thermal battery wrap # KH22200, # KH22100, and # KH22300 all have a warning not to overlap printed on the heater itself. This is partially why they come in the different lengths of 72 inches, 28 inches, and 36 inches.

  • Availability of Heated Battery Wraps for Trailer Battery
    We have three sizes for heated battery wraps you can pick from. We have the 36 inch long Kat's part # KH22200, the 72 inch # KH22300, and the 28 inch # KH22100.
