    Space heaters are better unless you live in a rental that has terrible draughts. I remember using these when I first moved out. If I had it blowing on me it felt like it was burning me, but if I had it blowing elsewhere I felt too cold

    Cost to own $15, look on your face when you get your winter quarterly electricity bill; Priceless

        Marketing executive annual salary: $250,000. Developing and implementing global advertising campaign: $20 million. Realising that people think your ad is actually for Visa? Priceless.

        Wouldn't that be a MasterCard ad campaign? Anyway totally off topic.

    ah fond memory….
    I bought this same heater 3 years ago for $18
    3 years later it's selling for $15.

    I agree with the above fellow ozbargainers about the running cost of the heater. The Bill did make me cry. I called and complained the power company. They told me to plug a power usage meter into the power socket and watch the numbers as I turn the heater on.
    I did.
    And I have been gathering firewoods eversince….. ;)

    Yeah these are useful for under desk heating. =) But if you want your whole room to be heated then you're better off with an oil column heater placed next to your window, with a thermostat. Or even better a gas ducted heating system for your house. Or the best is if your're at home, layer up= no heater used= WIN. =D

      a bit irrelevant, but how would ceramic tower heaters compare to those oil column ones? in terms of heat and bill…

        I used ceramic too. Whilst they do use 'less' energy—the sunbeam one I had was still rated at 2400W. It warmed up very quick and did heat the room faster than the normal fan heater; but like fan heaters, when they turn off the room will get cold—but the heat is retained a little better than the fan heater. Whilst Oil normally retains heat up to 1 hour after it is turned off. Hence oil may end up being the better, from my personal opinion.

          just to confirm, this ceramic one is the tower ceramic heater, right? i had a small ceramic fan heater (no thermostat) and it sucked up so much power I nearly went broke from my electricity bill one day…

        •  

          Yes most likely. If you look at the front and see a metal grill as the heating element with small holes then it's ceramic.

        •  

          Ceramic elements don't provide more efficient heating, they're just safer - the element has a much greater surface area so it runs at cooler temperatures, and it's also self-limiting in terms of temperature rather than relying on a (possibly faulty) safety cut off to prevent overheating if the fan fails.

    Abode 1200W Radiant Heater $20

    http://www.bigw.com.au/home-garden/small-appliances/heating-...

    I was thinking of using the radiant ones in the bathroom

    •  

      The radiant heaters are better in my opinion.
      The ones with the fan always smell like burning plastic…

      Which could be carcinogenic…

      Furthermore, wasn't there a fire issue last year with the woolworths ones, they were recalled… Same bloody issue.

    These things are horrible. They only work when you're right in front of them. Like, 10cm away. Really not worth it for the amount it costs to run them.

    Why do you need a heater when you can buy a snuggie
