Default Cheap Pronitrous Bottle Heaters

Has anyone tried these Pronitrous bottle heaters yet? They're super cheap and can't find reviews anywhere on them. I want to run a second bottle and have an NX heater for 1 and was considering this for the second bottle.

Here's the link: http://pronitrous.com/95-nitrous-bottle-heaters

Cheap enough for sure. Running both bottles together the heater that gets the hottest will use more nitrous than the other because its pressure drop will be less as it will recover faster. At that price get 2 if need be and sell the nx.

I have two of the orange ones for $58.95 each. Not sure how they differ from the even cheaper black ones other than color. They work great.

good point. I was kinda thinking that too. I could see that being a problem if the NX one heats faster

Good to know! How long do they take to heat up?

I have a black nx heater and a old heated bracket, the old bracket gets way hotter than the nx. My cousin has a nx and a old Harris speed one and the Harris gets way hotter than the nx for him to. Not saying yours will be the same but that's the way it worked for us.

Not a single one of our heaters were bought new, they all come with used kits we bought. So maybe they are both broke but I doubt it. For the price of that Pronitrous heater pad only I'd be trying one if I was you. If you want to run 2 bottles and heaters at the same time and you already have the pressure switch all you need it the blanket a $3 relay and some wire you can get at any parts store.

That's a pretty reasonable price. How come I've never heard of them? I'm suspicious of anything too cheap. But they could be fine.

They heat up quick and get very hot. I have no issues maintaining good bottle pressure, even in the winter.

Mine are switched on and off by a single relay that is controlled by a nitrous bottle pressure switch. As soon as I turn on my car, the bottle heaters come on. When the pressure switch sees 940 psi, it switches off the relay. The remaining heat in the warmers will raise the bottle pressure to just over 950 psi.

I run with two 15 pound bottles with remote bottle openers in my daily driver. At a moment's notice, the system is always ready to run. These cheap heaters work great.

hey just a thought... if i wasn't a fan of push systems, i would probably rig up my own heater with this WATERPROOF PiGLET BLANKET

https://www.qcsupply.com/250220-stan...mat-12-36.html

12"x36" for $90 and will maintain 30-35F above ambient evenly across the surface of the mat.

my issue with heaters (from years ago): takes forever then gets way too hot, heat was unevenly distributed (probably the reason for the former?).

yeah sure it isn't the cheaper option, but i found that not paying an extra few bucks to ensure consistency up front resulted in a melted piston.
all the little inconsistencies add up over time.
