The stick on oil pan heaters work very well and don't use much power. Just need to have some patience to do a good job installing.

As already mentioned, the easiest way to prevent moisture from building up in the oil is to take a drive with the oil up to temp for a half hour or 20+ miles once a week. That is a well verified solution. Changing the oil every 5000-7500 miles will also help. Mayo can also be a symptom of a CCV issue.
