DC Thermal Heater Add Ons










These DC powered heaters connect directly to the vehicle battery. They Do Not Plug Into a Lighter Socket!

These DC Thermal Heaters are some of the most powerful direct current heaters available today.
A Digital Temperature Controller can be added to ANY heater so that you can control the heat in your cabin or vehicle with the touch of a button. You set the desired temperature and the digital controller handles the rest!

Direct Current Heaters

DC Thermal engineers have spent countless hours developing this proprietary "Stealth IQ" Technology. This is the worlds ONLY Polymer Composite heating element encapsulated in a vacuum sealed quartz tube specifically designed for direct current!

These Polymer Elements feature a life expectancy of 10,000 hours which is almost 4 times the life of a standard alloy element. Not only are these elements designed to last a lifetime, but they are designed to be the ultimate in durability where vibration and moisture may be a factor.

The Stealth IQ will also put out up to 50% more heat than a standard element, while using the same power or amperage. The Polymer Element is vacuum sealed in a "Ruby" Quartz tube to protect it from any moisture or harsh conditions that the heater may be subjected to.

The Stealth IQ series also features injection molded high temp silicone tube boots that absorb vibration and will minimize any shock to the elements. This in addition to the overall design, will help to maximize the heaters life in the absolute worst conditions.

The Stealth IQ is a heater that is designed to literally last you a lifetime! Prior to this Polymer Technology, mounting any alloy type heater vertically was not recommended because it will dramatically shorten the life of the elements. The Stealth IQ series however allows you to mount the heater vertically so that it may fit into an even smaller space.

The Stealth IQ is available in a "Marine" version. Select Marine from the "Add Ons" menu above.

All heater model variants include a toggle switch which has three positions. The toggle switch position options are Low, Off and High power.

When high power is selected the heater will perform as described here. When the heater is switched into low power mode the heater will use one third (1/3) to one half (1/2) of the power described here.

These heaters use different numbers of heating elements and the toggle switch from low to high determines how many elements are powered on. For heaters that include two heating elements the low toggle position will power just one element, the high position powers both.

Heaters with three elements with the toggle in the low position two of the three elements will be powered.

Heaters built with four elements with the toggle in the low position two heating elements will receive power while the other two remain powered off.

This was a very affordable alternative to replacing the heater in my truck and it works great. If we can just make it through till spring we plan to fix the original truck heater and then I'll be moving this 12volt heater into the cabin on the boat.

These heaters are working like a dream. We installed these in our crane and loader about three days ago. We've had no problems and now have more than enough heat.
