whooda thunk a thread about the battery blanket would go to three pages? LOL, I guess we have nothing better to talk about . . .
I don't see how that thing can provide any kind of significant thermal insulation. Yeah OK if the car suddenly went from hot to cold, or cold to hot environment, that blanket would slow down the heating or cooling of the battery a little bit; I guess it might reduce "thermal shock" (meaning sudden and drastic change in temperature). But if I park my car outside overnight, and it is 10 below zero outside, that battery is going to be at 10 below by morning, with or without that blanket.
And if it was going to catch an acid leak, it would need a bottom . . .
