Question OBS rear socket question..

Does anyone know if I can hook an electric blanket to the rear accessory socket in the OBS trunk? Im trying to be cheap and not pay $100+ for a bottle heater for my NOS. Thanks!

If you pick up a 12V-120V converter, I don't see why you couldn't use an electric blanket. The converters are like 40 bucks from Costco.

Unless there's some kind of safety risk here... maybe like fire retardancy? Are the NOS bottle warmers special in some sort of way? Temperature regulation?

You just don't want the heat too high or the bottle pressure will go to the stratosphere and explode. Im just looking to keep the temps between 80-90F under the blanky. Thanks for the info. I'll go shopping tomorrow.

Well, if you raise the heat too high for the bottle, that's also probably enough to make people uncomfortable, so electric blankie manufacturers probably didn't design that much heating capacity into their blankets.

But make sure you test how hot this thing can get first!

Not sure if Costco still carries them, haven't been there in a while.
