A satellite channel that the other half watches is promoting these socket mounted heaters with a digital timer. A heater that is 'designed' to hang from a two pin socket at a fixed point on the wall, supposedly to adequately warm up a 20m squared area. The TV advert shows, or infers fitting in bathrooms.......

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

The recommendation from the couple living on a boat made me laugh, I wonder if they burnt to death or drowned

Hot on the heels of the Livington heater comes another H+S conundrum, the Chop Star.

Actually, hygiene issues apart (they can be dealt with), the Chop Star does look quite a useful kitchen tool - might see if I can get one for the wife for Xmas.
OTOH, that heater looks "****ing" dangerous :mad:

It is a brave man who would give that as a present to his wife for Christmas, you could wake up on Boxing day as a John Bobbit Mk2

The Amazon verdicts

This wall heater made in China will burn your house down..the thermostat will cut the fan off but the heat coil remains on..beware.

BestMarket are currently capitalising on thiis product called the Arctic Air.


which is an evaporative cooling system with filters - that apparently cost more than the cooler itself.

Reviews , not good, but since it runs off the USB it is less likely to burn one's house down, though some mention the water can and does escape, so who knows ?

Might just about cool the air around the PC - think how "warm" those USB coffee cup holders manage to get, or how much air gets shifted by USB desk fans!:rolleyes:
