(I never put the charger on after the last test) The bags were too warm for me so I'd be shutting them off soon after pre-heating for 30 minutes or so.


Thanks! I've left them in my Amazon "wishlist" until my next winter trip comes into view.

I hadn't thought of putting them INSIDE the sleeping bag, though. Hmmm!
"Trapping" the heat seems to be key. The very first time I ran them, uncovered just sitting on top of the bags - they got warm, but the next test when I left a pillow on top - that's when they REALLY hit their stride.

I imagine they'll heat up a space the size of a teardrop, but may not be the most efficient mode of operation for these.

Just a FYI to those looking for a heater for their teardrop or cargo trailer. The price has come down on Diesel parking heaters $126.00 for a FULLY vented forced air heater. They can be run on Kerosene for a cleaned burn. https://www.ebay.com/i/162807313036?ul_noapp=true
