You can use this blanket with or without an electric power source as it has a removable electric plug that is an extremely useful feature. If you do decide that you want to use it as an electric blanket, it simply plugs into the 12-volt socket of any car, SUV or truck. It folds up neatly and can be stored in your trunk ready for a cold morning, a camping trip or a roadside emergency.
It has a thermostat that can be set to one of three heat levels and an automatic shut-off that can be set to 30 minutes, 45 minutes and 60 minutes. It’s made of soft polyester and has an attractive camouflage print on both sides, although it is also available in plain grey and navy. When it’s dirty, you can pop it in your washing machine.
