Did either of you guys post the actual name brand of the seat heaters?
This is really a great thread. I might need to take a day off of work to do the job
The ones I got are the brand name "eBay special".
I posted the link in the first post.
ROFL !! OK, so does that kit include the backs?
I definitely want to do the buns and the back. Up and down 880 is getting to be a chilling experience. Oh wait, I don't want the anti-EV enthusiasts to see this. I just need the seat heaters for my guests from LA
Yeah, that's the ticket.
I used my new heaters for the first time during the commute this morning (my wife has had the Leaf all week...). Even though I had the heater running in full auto mode, the warm buns were nice!
It's amazing how much more heat you feel with cloth seats than with leather (at least comparing to my wife's Acura seats)! By the same token, I didn't feel much heat on my back, until I thought to lift the back of my sweatshirt up...then I realized it was insulating me from that heat as well as the cold...
Yes, the kits all seem to come with identical pairs of heating pads. As Phil mentioned, they use parallel vs. series wiring through the pair to adjust heat output.
The eBay special looks a lot like the Besond seat heaters from Jiling Debang
, an OEM supplier to VW and others. I wonder if this set would work too, it comes with some kind of "Nissan switch":

That kit is similar, but not identical to the one I got. Be sure to get one that can be cut to any length for the greatest flexibility on the install. Mine came in 2 days from placing the order.
