I’d give this a 6 on the lame scale (1=not lame, 10=totally lame). Would be an 9.3 if it was a summer woot
We have this unit and it works great. The lil guy packs a punch.
Living in LA, it was super cold couple of weeks ago…i mean like mid to low 40s at night…I know…that’s like freezing…right? (I’m being sarcastic, so you ppl who live in -150 degree temps, don’t reply)
We didn’t want to turn on the central heater, we just wanted to warm up the bedroom a few degrees. After 30 mins the room was nice and confy. One night we left the unit on for a while and the room got way too hot (gf lost the remote…so I had to get up and turn it off
So we highly recommend it.
PERFECT! i need a heater for my cubicle… and my room! i’m down for two. woot. you’ve always been my favorite child.
Only one review on Amazon - 2 stars (44695 + S&H - MARKETPLACE New for $29.95 + $8.95 S&H
A Honeywell specialty store does not have this model (others very close though) but only has 3 year warranty listed for them.
It is $35 + $11 shipping at Newegg…
another toy for me to start a fire? nahh ill stick to a lighter.
Have you seen the price of OIL? Can’t afford an oil filled heater or an oil burning heater. Ceramic works very well.

1500W, 120 VAC
Watts = Volts times Amps…so…
1500W/120VAC= 12.5 amps.
Be wary when plugging these in to overused circuits! Note this draw would be a little different, as most homes dont see a full 120. Please dont use an extension cord. Please dont ever use this off a power strip. You could D.I.A.F.
better than the heating unit sold on woot a while back that was meant for vehicles mounted on your dashboard. Only way to power that was a car charger. Not as practical as this since home use is more useful. To be fair, if you turn on your car to power the radio and windows, but not the engine, the car ceramic heating unit would hafve its use
I Have a different model of this heater and I love it. It will heat up my bedroom 20-30 degrees in 10-15 minutes. Im in for 1 (maybe 2)
FWIW, all electric heaters have the same efficiency. That includes in-wall, baseboard, space heaters, even whole-house electric heat systems. Why? Because the only losses are due to heat. That’s fine, it’s a heater.
If you compare it to gas or steam heat, that’s a different story.
I guess it could be argued this doesn’t include radiant heaters, since they don’t actually heat the space. And it definitely doesn’t include heat pumps.
Still using one of those old oil space heater, this will be a nice upgrade.
If it’s anything like the model I have (which is virtually identical, but just a couple years old and looks very slightly different) it is surprising how much of a NON-fire hazard it is. It’s weird, but it really doesn’t get that hot. I mean, it’s nothing you should leave unattended just to be safe, but it’s nothing like the old school crap you’re thinking of.
1500W? You better hope the wiring inside your walls can handle that kind of current draw for extended periods of time. Otherwise, you’re liable to be a David Byrne lyric statistic.
Here is the Manufacturer Web Page for this Heater
Retail Price is $59.99
By the way, Thermostat in this unit is completely inaccurate .
Waiting around for Saturday’s kickoff event eh? Me too.
Headed up there tomorrow actually.
As for me, I got one of the heaters. This will work quite nice in my bedroom which is at the opposite end of my house than my natural gas ventless freestanding fireplace.
Does it sense the room temperature, or its own temperature?
Most heaters have the thermostat built-in and shut off when the heater gets hot. Not any good for maintaining the room temperature!
this is very helpful. thanks. i live in an old building with a reaaaly old electrical “situation”… i’ll make sure to plug it into it’s own circuit with no extension chord
