Competition Heat "Blue Deuce 2" DC Nitro Engine Heater (12V)
This engine heater is amazing. It allows for immediate starts if the engine is warmed up to around 180-200 degrees. I purchased the 12V model based on the possibility of using 3S lipo batteries to power it up. My word of caution, use a lipo with at lease 5000mAh capacity as this will help prevent the battery from being overdischarged in the process of warming your engine. The owner of CH recommends a 5000mAh battery and it is "supposed" to get 1 hour of use. This is not true at all! Unless you want to use a BEC to prevent overdischarging the batteries, use a power supply or I use a gel cell battery that I took from my starter box. It works very well and lasts at least a day of racing.

Competition Heat "Blue Deuce 2" DC Nitro Engine Heater (12V)
Awesome product with very reasonable renewed price, just a tick more than heatgun. For those who have plans about powering this device via BEC: it eats around 45-50Wt and usually takes about 1000mAh and ten minutes from 3s lipo battery to heat up engine in normal conditions. Even light wind can dramatically increase time and amount of mAh
