Has anybody tried to use one of those heated seat cushions that plug into a cigaret lighter socket?
How well do they work?
How much power do they draw, amps?

I thought it might be a good idea to try to stay warm when clearing the snow.
Most times when I'm clearing the driveway it's at night time so the tractor lights are on, not sure if the charging circuit can put out enough amps to run the lights and the seat warmer at the same time.

Most of the ones i have seen draw 10-15 amps, but thats just what i have seen, way too much draw for a small tractor.

If your in doubt, i would just put the battery on a slow charge after plowing for a few hours to make sure shes charged back up completely
