Very expensive to warm at night the whole apartment when you sleep in a bed. Much better to save money on heating and warm a bed only. So I decided to make a heating blanket.
As the heating element I used the carbon tape. It looks like a thin, soft cloth and not interfere in a bed.
The carbon tape can be sewed, but insteadit can besimply glued. Because of this I did it in just 1 hour!
Glue the wire to the carbon tape using silver conductive wire glue. Due to the silver glue, contacts will be very thin, very small, will not interfere in a bed. These contacts can be easily and quickly done, and they will be very reliable.
Squeezebetween two layers ofcarbontapesome silverfrom the syringe, insertthe bare wire, squeezeglueplaceuntil theglueis completely dry.
Putstrips ofno-sew hem tapealong the entire lengthof the wire.Fold theedge of the fabricand pressiron.

Cover with secondpiece of clothand gentlypressthe ironover the whole area.
Solder the plug. I connectitto the power supplyfrom my laptop.Work is finished.
Blanketconsumes about40watts.This power isenough not onlyfor homebeds,but alsofor a sleeping bagin a campaign.ThenI connect theblanketto a battery12volts.
Blanket is a comfortableshelter, butit can also beputon a mattressunder a sheet.
Blanketcan be embedded in a duvet cover, but also youcanbe coveredby it alone.
During the day Iuse it tocover my feetin a chair.
