Adapter for a Heating pad?

I'm new so I was just surfing around some of the old posts and I read somewhere about there being an adapter you could use to plug your heating pad into your car? The post was closed so I'm sorry to start a new thread and I don't know if the person who wrote about it was still around. If anyone knows where I could buy one, could you please let me know?

Thanks

Vehicle Power Inverter

Search on Amazon, or go to auto parts store, probably even WalMart. You just need toknow the amps your pad draws. Adapters start under $10 and get bigger and more $s the more amperage you need.

Various names

On amazon.com it is listed as "vehicle power inverter" may also be called:
Car power inverter, 12 volt to ac auto adapter. You will get many choices. You need to have a high enough amp/amperage/wattage to run your heating pad. If you do not know this, any one that says it will run a laptop computer is probably strong enough. These at Amazon would probably be fine
