As a Defroster YES!

This item works well. I purchased it because the front defroster is not working in my minivan, I plugged it in and aimed it at the windshield and...... it cleared the window a little at a time. I think it works fine and if this unit fails before I get the defroster fixed I would purchase it again.
Warm up quickly with this 12 volt rubberized car heater! The car heater is also suitable for supplementing your car heater to keep backseat passengers warm. The car heater also works as a windshield defroster for when your front or rear defogger is not working. Stay warm with this handy rubberized car heater!
