Block Heater

How does a BLOCK heater keep your car from dying in minus 35 weather?

Does the Block heater keep the battery warm as well, so it doesn't die out in minus 35 degree weather?? I'm trying to explain to this new guy at work who is not used to driving in a cold climate how you need to plug in your car at night...

A block heater is an element that is in place of a soft plug on the engine, when you plug it in it warms the coolant up which in turn warms the engine so it cranks over easily when you start it in -35 degree weather- it does not heat the battery- just the coolant- although you can obtain a battery heater- but those aren't used except for like in alaska or far north canada. Some vehicles also do not come with block heaters- especially ones shipped from the factory to warm climates- your coworker may need to have one installed if he does not have one.
