Energy in a battery can be converted to heat.  Use a resistor.  Current is voltage/resistance. Current times voltage is heat in watts.  If you dump a 12V battery into a 2 Ohm resistor you will get 6A of current and thus 12(V)*6(A) = 72 Watts of heat.

Seems like an expensive way to do it. A battery won't last long if you draw enough current to make it hot. Why not use a normal heating element?

... and a very smokey resistor ...

Make sure your resistor can handle the power, or it will burst into flames.  A little ¼W one wouldn't be suitable smiley-wink

You can make your own heating element using Nickel Chromium (NiChrome) wire.  A good source for this is from an old electric heater, surprisingly enough smiley

Enough heat for what? You'll get better answers if you tell people what you're trying to do.

the amount of water is less than 2 L and change  the temperature up to  25c from 10c

Over how long a period?  (i.e., how fast do you want it to heat up?)

How many joules of energy is that? How many are in your battery?

Answer: Over 120Kj of heat needed, only 18Kj in a 9V battery. You'll need about 15 batteries to do it.

Answer: Over 120Kj of heat needed.

120,000 Joules = 33.333 Watt-hours

A 100 Watt heater would heat the water in 1/3 hour (20 minutes). Do you need faster heating?

200 Watts would take 10 minutes.

2,000 Watts would take 1 minute.

20,000 Watts would take 6 seconds. smiley

...annnd a 9V battery would take 10 days.  smiley-lol

9V at 150ma = 1.35W
333Wh/1.35W = 246hours
