The arctic weather outbreak headed our way has me reconsidering my thoughts on the 62kwh battery and its apparent lack of a battery heater. We're expecting double-digit sub-zero lows 2 days in a row next week, something we very rarely see in the greater Denver area.
I'll move the Leaf into the garage for those nights - simplest solution. For those without a garage, not a great prospect.
Has anyone come up with a solution for heating the battery while parked outside? I've wondered about RV tank heaters. Haven't been up close and personal with the underside of the battery yet. I wonder if a couple of those might not be enough to stave off the worst outcomes. There are some models that run on AC power.

Just a thought.
As we are strongly considering adding storage to our future solar setup on the house, this is also of interest for that application. We don't have room for storage batteries inside our garage at our location.
