Taking things too far with these light-weight thermal blankets is okay. If you think this is more suitable for a doomsday prep kit. You are wrong because come the chilling ice and snow that should be part of winter car essentials. Doomsday may not come, but this comes in handy too. Including this affordable way to ward off cold. It even comes in a set of packs that are best for a family of four!

There is little chance of freezing to death in a car. Except, if the battery has gone dead. Got your EV stuck in the cold, or conventional car that cannot be dug out! It is not a deathly situation, but this item will give comfort from the cold. After an hour or two, a car battery is good. But, cold discharges even a conventional car fast! More so if the car is an EV that has gone below 20% operational charge. Still not convinced? More information about why these thermal blankets will be invaluable.

It works that way keeping the body warm despite such thinness. Storing more than one is good for winter car essentials.
