heating pads for use in Portugal

Hi, I have been reading on the message board and it sounds like my US heating pad is likely to burn out if used with a voltage converter in Europe. I am going to Portugal and would like to use a heating pad there. Does anyone know how easy/difficult it would be to buy one there? What it might cost? What it is called? and What kind of store I should look for to buy one?
I am flying in to Lisbon and traveling to the Algarve. Z

Try going low tech and do a hot-water bottle with a warm fuzzy cover instead. They are all the rage here in Germany.

Try a supermarket. I have no idea what it would be in Portuguese, but the great thing is there will be a picture on the box...
