Then what are those heating elements for? (uhm)
Or do you take exception with the idea that it's strong enough to melt ice? (flame)
It works like the ones you have on the rear mirror, it activates the heating elements and melts the ice. But I find it somewhat useless while driving... it doesnt really melt the ice on the wipers itself...
Or maybe we don't need it as major capital cities don't get snow!
What about my upcoming ski vacation? [I wish!]
Yes but that's not in major capital cities. Only certain towns get snow here
