ProTek RC "Blue Flame" DC Nitro Engine Heater (Head Warmer)
This week I took the time to highlight something I have actually been using for a while which made me feel more comfortable reviewing it. The Protek RC Engine Heater is a useful tool from Protek RC used to pre-heat your engine before starting it or to even keep the engine at a specific temperature during break-in.
Engines are expensive, so being able to pre-heat them and gain longevity is important in keeping cost down overall. All this warmer needs is either a 3S lipo battery or a 12V power supply to supply 140(F) degrees plus.
Specifications (provided by Protek):
- 150 Degrees of Heat
- Use with 3S or Power Supply
- Compact For Easy Traveling
- Relatively Inexpensive
- Low Voltage Cutoff
- Doesn't Heat as Quickly or Get as Hot as 4S Alternatives
Definitely a fan of this heating application. The LVC and safety timer are really nice for forgetful people like myself. If this thing ever does quit working I would definitely buy another. 5/5 recommended to anyone.
