2011 Chevrolet Volt: Fun With a Laser Thermometer

December 20, 2011

I'm not sure if hybris was serious when he asked for a laser thermometer reading of the seats on the highest heat setting of the Chevy Volt. But we aim to please, so I brought my thermometer to work today.

Click through to see a video of me measuring the temperature of the seat heaters in the Chevy Volt after I arrived at the office. At one point at a red light I took the temp and it was 110.5 degrees F. On this video the temp varies from 96 to 109 degrees at different points on the seat. I'll do this again in some of our other cars for comparison. This may not be the most scientific experiment, but at least it will let you see the differences.

Then we started measuring things around the office like our hands, our co-workers' heads, computer equipment. A weird side note: Mike's coffee was the exact same temperature as my mouth. Too much information? We found this disturbing.
