Do Yourself a favour and don't by this.

" I used this last winter, but it just doesnt live up to my expectations. It's very quiet, but really doesnt deliver any heat. especially not in prairie winters.
Its actually so quiet, I ended up killing my battery 5 times by forgetting about it. But hey, when it finally pooched my battery i got a new one for free. "

Needs some work

Date:March 23, 2009
" Well after reviewing this product a major engineering flaw was noticible immedietly, wire size is to small to suply adiquate voltage at the heater 250w/12 = 21A
21A with a cable run total of say 10' you need 8AWG cable and that gives you a 1.13% voltage drop. So lets say the batteries at 12v exactly, that means you'll get 11.86V at the heater!
My solution was to mount it right at the battery, turn it on/off with a relay and duct the heated air back into the cab via insulated flex duct, and I replaced the wire with some left over 4awg and it worked fine enough.
But for the price of this you can buy 2, 150w heaters for a total of 300w @ the same price or less! "

heats up,,,no power

Date:February 18, 2008
" I baught this heater for my truck,,,
it warms up ok, but the fan on it is to weak,,,you barely feel it blowing...
This was the replacement one too,, same thing,, I think the fans in my computer put out more airflow than this. I mean its nice of your sitting for an hour with it and the windows closed and the sun shinning in..but other than that...what a waste... "
