Best Heated Car Seat Covers & Heated Car Seat Cushions
1. Sojoy Universal Plain Black Front Seat Cover Warm Seat Protector in Winter for Car, SUV& Truck 1pc
Keep it budget-friendly with this $22 seat warmer. The cold weather automotive essential is safe, so don’t worry about overheating. It’s made from fire-resistant cloth.
The car seat heater is a universal fit, so it will fit most car and truck seats. It even has adjustable headrests that are super stretchy.
Warm up that lower back for those long winter commutes! A customer gave it five stars and said it fits a Freightliner.
2. Comfier Massage Seat Cushion with Heat – 10 Vibration Motors Seat Warmer, Back Massager for Chair, Massage Chair Pad for Back Ideal Gifts for Women,Men
COMFIER’s seat does require an electric power source. Now, it is pricey compared to the first option, but you get what you pay for. This $58 cover is also a back massager! If your job requires long waiting times in the car (or if you just want a massaging experience while driving), you’ll appreciate this cover.
The vibration massage is truly a hit for drivers with back pain.
A customer gave it five stars and wrote, “I fell in the ice back in February and hurt my lower back. Sitting at my desk was excruciating and only got worse with time. I couldn’t find any comfort no matter how many ways I contorted myself. My wife told me to purchase this complete massager/heating pad. Oh my goodness! I set the massaging and heat to focus on my lower back and posterior and felt almost immediate relief.”
There are two heat settings, the low setting can reach 114 degrees Fahrenheit, and the high setting can heat up to 131 degrees Fahrenheit. Two temperature settings will come in handy if multiple drivers share a car. (Be sure to buy a car cigarette lighter adapter, however, an adapter for home is included.)
The safe, high-quality cover features an auto-shut-off feature for overheat protection. There’s a 30-minute timer. Feel free to use it on your office chair as well to stay warm and toasty while sippin’ on coffee!
3. HealthMate IN9438 Velour 12V Heated Seat Cushion with Lumbar Support, Heating with Easy Controller, Color Black, Products by Wagan
This cover is a bit more budget-friendly. The $35 heated seat cover has two temperature controls (high & low) and offers comfy cushioning. It is a universal fit, and there are elastic straps and elastic bands to prevent the cushion from moving.
It’s compatible with your car’s 12-volt outlet. Be sure to unplug it to avoid overheating and draining your battery. Check out this review from Faith.
