What Are Heating Pads Good For?

There are a lot of great projects you can use heating pads (5x10cm and 5x15cm) in, ranging from warming gloves, slippers, a blanket, or anything you want to keep nice and warm. Got a beard mask you want to make toasty? Do beards need to be warmer? Not sure. Would it be a fun project? Definitely.

What Parts Should You Consider Getting for Your Project?

You can go as simple as getting the appropriate power supply and a heating pad. One heating pad is rated for 5V, and draws about 600mA. If you want to add a form of logic or control to your circuit, such as interfacing with sensors, the easiest way is to add a microcontroller/development board to your project. You will also need some wire and transistor to control the heating pad if you are using a microcontroller.
