This 12V 50W Mosquito Heater Cartridge is a powerful but compact little heating unit that has been designed specifically to accommodate the impressive new Mosquito Hotend, comfortably offering heating capabilities up to around 350°C in open-air systems, and as high as 400°C in enclosed chambers. This is enough to really start taking on those engineering-grade plastics like Nylon, Ultem and even PEEK Filaments, opening up even more opportunities for using your 3D Printer for functional prints.

Although this heater cartridge is primarily stocked to accommodate the Mosquito Hotend, it can be used just as easily for almost any other Heater Blocks that have a 6mm diameter and 22mm long bore. However, just remember that this heater cartridge is 12V DC, so it’s important to make sure that this matches up with your 3D Printer’s electrical specifications.

If you’re looking for a great upgrade to your 3D Printing material capabilities, or are looking to replace an old or faulty heater cartridge but are looking for something better to swap in, there are few Heater Cartridges that can quite compare to the Mosquito 12V 50W Heater Cartridge – especially if you are looking forwards to printing high-temp engineering grade materials.

Please Note: This heater cartridge works at it’s optimal capabilities when used in conjunction with Boron Nitride Paste, which is an extremely effective thermal coupling paste that can easily handle temperatures up to 1000°C.
