    Well I saw this tonight. It's -20˚C/-4˚F here in Winnipeg but the air coming out of this vent is over +13˚C.
    What a great idea to help keep the battery warm while charging. There are four HPWC units used for a local limousine company, but only one air vent.

    I love seeing this kind of outside the box ingenuity. I guess you have to think like that when its -20 every day!
