This halogen-powered heater is a must during the winter months when the cold really sets in! The halogen heating elements provide heat almost instantly when the unit is switched on, whilst the low running costs are estimated as being from just 11 pence per hour. The safety tilt switch is a reassuring feature for those with pets or small children; if the unit is knocked over power to the heating elements is automatically cut off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought this heater to help heat my cold flat over the winter months. When I removed it from the packaging it looked as if it had been used before and the build quality is haphazard and cheap. As long as it worked I didn't care. I was quite happy for the first hour then realised the on off switch was faulty, then after a couple of days of evening only use one of the bulbs went. Then Christmas so I was away for a week to come back and switch it on then another bulb goes. So ultimately this was good for about 28 days, 18 days actual use only on evenings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted about 3 weeks before the On/Off switch failed and just stays on and needs to be turned on/off by the mains. Then the 3rd and 4th bar failed, but a judicious kick made the 3rd bar come on. Still no 4th bar, now just praying for summer, bin job when the weather warms up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had 2 of these now. The first one blew up. I am using the new one for the second time and it has already blown a bulb

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Effective when they work 1200/1600w effective as supplemental heating. Light to carry around. However, I have now lost count of the number of heaters I have exchanged due to bulbs blowing often after little use. Last heater was returned due to on/off button getting stuck. The shop says I'm the only one to return?? If you buy keep the receipt and bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very keen price, easy to assemble- put base on! gives out a lot of heat, especially on 1600watt setting. Base is a bit flimsy- tends to wobble. Essential that it is put on a firm base otherwise the safety switch tends to cut out very easily ( a good thing if knocked over!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought one of these heaters and within a day one of the elements had stopped working. Within a week another two had gone. Very disappointed. Returned for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1st one failed within a week. On / off switch broke. Second one blew three bulbs, one per week so taking back for refund. Have to give a rating but one star seems too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little heater, powerful, lightweight, easy to move around. Does act like a light so need to turn off to sleep or face a wall. If it is as cheap as advertised, (11p an hr) great value!

dear maplins, what is the specified power output for 2,3 and 4 bar mode. 4 bars is obviously going to be 1600watt max. I want to use the item in my campervan but some campsites have a 7amp trip on the supply and 1600watts is very close to 7amp.
Asked by: andy deacon
Each bar uses 400w.
