Do Block Heater Poles Work for Electric Plug-in Vehicles?

The answer to your question is a matter of current draw for the device and what is available from the outlets. One example of a block heater says that the "element is 600W and uses 120VAC."1 by way of comparison many desktop computers come with a 400 watt power supply. One rule of thumb is that you want your constant wiring load to be no more than 75% of the rated capacity of the wiring. Practically speaking you might have one 20 amp breaker (2400 watts at 120 volts) for every 3 outlets. It is unlikely that you would have one breaker for each outlet. But it is possible. You might even have up to 13 outlets for one breaker. 2 The charger for an electric vehicle is likely to have a higher draw. One site(3) lists a range of chargers (you would have to have installed onboard) as having a draw from 1.6kw (1600 watts or about 13 amps to a low of 500 watts and therefore slightly less then the expample of the block heater. So it is possible but you would either have to have a low wattage charger to be sure you would not blow a fuse. Now how much of the battery capacity you might be able to fill is entirely another question. It would depend upon the size of the battery pack. One battery pack capacity for a home built electrical powered van is listed at 20kwh. The van is equiped with a solar cell and a wind turbine that together can produce 600 watts at peak capacity. The owner says this would take a day to top off the batteries.4 The figures here make a lot of assumptions that would need to be verrified under actual conditions. For example it is unlikely that this much power would be constantly being provided to a parking lot full of cars.

I dont think they make those cars with a block heater but can be easily added.

2. Do I need a block heater for 2010 toyota corolla?

2010 is not old, but a block heater is never bad to have. A battery heater is more important in your case, they do not like to be frozen, still people make without them. If you are having problems, look into them, but a new car should be good, keep your battery clean, even dirt on top hurts it, clean with water and baking soda mix. Talk to a mechanic if you continue to have problems

just remove it and put a freeze plug back in its place,if you do not need it there's no sense in having it,that's what was original in the hole to begin with,good luck with it

7. Block heater installation on a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6?

A factory coolant heater (block heater) Screws in. The location is on the right side of the engine ( as looking at the engine from the drivers fender) under the exhaust manifold. If you are mechanically inclined then you should be able to tackle the job. If your vehicle did not have that option, you can buy the kit from the dealership. You can only access the heater install location from under the vehicle. Call a dealership and request a quote to do the job...thats free. Then make the determination if it's worth the time and grime to do it yourself... Email me and i will send you a diagram with the location.

8. how hard is it to install a engine block heater? How much would it cost to have it done?

It should not be that hard to install if you have some basic mechanical skills. You will have to first drain the coolant from the radiator. Traditional freeze plugs can be punched out and then removed with a pair of pliers. It looks like your's is a screw-in style that will take a standard ratchet to remove it (if you have one big enough). I find a freeze plug style block heater for your application at O are illy for $36.99 plus tax. My Honda dealership charges $74/hour for labor.

My car's block heater broke, and the temp is -50c. Is my car gonna be OK?start it up and run it each day if possible to operating temp...itll be better than just letting it freeze up4. At what temp. should you use a block heater for your car?I think it depends on the vehicle. I have driven Mercedes diesels for years. I have one with 649K miles, and I have to plug it in at 20 degrees (F) or below, else it's not going to start. The other two have half or less the mileage, and most of the time I never plug them in at all. About the coldest it gets here is 15 (F) or so normally, so I do not have the extreme temps some people have. Years ago I had an Olds 98 diesel and a Cadillac Fleetwood diesel, and never plugged in either one, and they always started. My old '89 F250 Ford pickup had to be plugged in around 20 degrees F, otherwise it had difficulty starting, too. Just depends on how the engine acts when it's cold. Some just do better than others. I've had several diesel farm tractors, never had one that even had a block heater on it, never had a lot of trouble. I drive a tractor-trailer part-time, one day a week, and we've never used a block heater on it, either. Again, just depends on the individual engine, and the temps you have. Just experiment with it. It wo not hurt anything to leave it plugged in. PS - I would LOVE to hear an explanation from the moron who gave that thumbs-down on this one.5. Where is the block heater hole on a 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE?the factory uses an existing freeze plug hole. on the side of the block. if this has an I4, remove the freeze plug under the intake on the side of the block. not the exhaust side. keeping the heater and wires away from excessive heat if possible. if it has a V6, either bank is fine. exhaust heat will be present on either side of the engine.6.
