Is it mains powered or 12v via a car socket? Nothing there (or in the "reviews") to say which it is

Mains power.
Good deal if you can get one, no stock near me

No stock around here, would have been OK for me this.

Peterborough has some HTH

AMAZING FIND! Even Draper ceramic 1500w costs £20!

got one in York

Thanks, reserved one of these at my nearest store :-)

Just reserved one in Gateshead, thanks OP!

Ha ha ha. Thats only 125amps...the fatal shock for a human being 60ma :). If it was feed by 12v i would buy one for each of my enemies at this price and let the frying begin.

No stock.

even if you can reserve one, it doesn't mean you can get one. we reserved it about 2 weeks ago and the next day they gave us a call to tell it's not available...

Erm, you're not going to get 125 amps flowing through you if you put 12V across you. Try it with a car battery - which is certainly capable of delivering 125 amps because that is around the amount it has to deliver to start the engine. But a starter motor has a somewhat lower resistance than you have.

Please note the standard warning about these heaters: they will not deliver any more heat per penny than any other sort of electric heater (apart from storage heaters which you charge up at night at a lower rate). Please don't waste your money on one to replace an existing heater to save money because it won't make any difference. The "ceramic element" gimmick has consistently been used to mis-market these things as somehow more "efficient" than other heaters. They are not.

Just reserved at my second closest store....heres hoping :-)

Just got the call.....low stock now equals no stock!

It was meant to be a light hearted comment

Its rated at 1500w, so at 12v as suggested by a previous (ridiculous) post it would draw 125amps. And unless your made of ceramic/rubber, even at a very low voltage (12v) a current like that will cause fatal heart defibrilations.

Yes, but you don't appear to have a grasp of Ohm's Law. "Even at a very low voltage" is not a side issue, it is the very reason why you won't get 125 amps flowing through you at 12V.

I understand Ohm's law and i accept your point about low voltage but still even at this "low pressure" a shock would be fatal (dependant on resistance) And as i said it was just meant as a joke, belive it or not i dont intend to cook all of my enemies with cheap, out of stock B&Q heaters.
