Makers, developers and electronic enthusiasts searching for a way to generate heat in their projects may be interested in the new electric heating pad which has arrived at the Adafruit online store. The electric heating pad measures 10 cm x 5 cm and is now available to purchase priced at $3.95. “Apply 5-12VDC and the stainless steel fibers in this heating fabric will warm up, creating a little heating pad.”
“On one hand, it’s just a gigantic resistor. On the other hand, it’s flexible, light, and can be wrapped around a project. Originally designed for portable wearable heating pads, this fabric can be used for wearables, weather balloons, diy-bio projects, thermal cycling for materials testing, etc. The temperature reached varies with voltage. This piece is 10cm long, so look in the spec sheets in the Technical Details tab for a table of voltage/current/temperature outputs. You could PWM it with a power N-channel transistor if you want to have finer temperature control.”
