Default Anyone using a Ebay heater ?

Hi all

Was trying to get a mini sized heater however the wisdom seems to be if you do get one it still needs re-coring ?

For that sort of money I could get one of these ?

I was going to buy a old style mini heater , however they seem to fetch silly money on Ebay and would probably need re-coring adding to the price ?

So I wondered if anyone had fitted one of these Ebay heaters ?



or



I am not looking for more than 2 outlets and not fussed whether I get more than 1 fan speed ?

regards Paul

Looks like a neat little unit. How much are they ?
The old Mini heaters were never that good imo.

Hi there

The red one is about 34 and the black one is about 55 both P&P free from China

Just need a small one for heating the cockpit , no demist nor anything fancy , may try the red one.

Was hoping someone one here had tried one ? the fans look a little puny ?

You could easily modify one of those cheap oil coolers on ebay and fit it with a proper cooling fan. Just been looking at several options on ebay. Would be a cheap and easy way for some warm air.
