This is hot! Literally! 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.

  1. Review by Sean - Great, cheap little heat pad. verified purchaser
    Rating

    I just wanted something cheap for a few little home projects (propagating seedlings etc) and didn't want to pay a lot for a professional setup. I gave this a try (how do you loose for less than $7). Heats up within seconds and running off 12v gets pretty hot. Although it seems flimsy (it's basically a wire weave bandage with a plastic film) it doesn't appear to lose any integrity when hot. Read the tech specs, very versatile, cheap stuff.
