Oh, I'd probably use yours...  as long as I was right there with it any time it was plugged in.  It's just nothing you want to leave sitting, as it wouldn't take long to raise the temp/press enough to pop the blow-off valve...  as those that water will get VERY hot.  (hot water tank on hi, hot)  And, you don't want kids (or idiots) messing with it.   LOL!

One other thing...  I noticed you had it wired up to a 110V plug.  Aren't those things supposed to run off 220V?

Not all of them. Thats a 1500 watt, 110v element.

Mount the bottle behind the passenger seat. Run your heater. Putyour coat on it to hold heat/conceal the bottle. Problem solved

   I have no interest in nitrous, however being a electrical engineer and holding a masters electrician license, all I can say is... ARE YOU FUCKING NUTS?     Your idea is good and I'd like to post the safe way to wire up what you are doing but will not put myself in a liable position.    PLEASE be careful and at least install an over temperature/over current device with concealed wiring.

Okay, time to put this one to bed. Wrapped the wiring and element end with several layers of quality electrical tape, done.

The purpose of this was simple. To see if I could build a cheap, simple, and somewhat compact bottle heater. Passes on all 3. Sure, it has some drawbacks. But you get what you pay for.
