How many WATTS is our block heater?

i've done some searches, both on here, and using Google, but haven't had any luck. The reason I'm looking is that I want to get a portable powerpack to run my block heater on cold nights. (I park on the street in Chicago, and never get the same spot twice, so running an extension cord would be nearly impossible., unless it was 100-200 yards long.) Anyway, does anyone have an idea on how many watts it pulls?

I hooked my power inverter up to it and it drew 450 watts.

Okay, my guess is a portable power pack would be drained pretty quickly.
