  • Halogen Heater with 3 Heat Settings
  • Safety Tilt Switch - Auto Shut Off if it tips over
  • Includes Turning / Oscillating Function
  • Black Colour
  • Instant Heat

Similar looking model is available at Dunelm for £16. Based on what I read online halogen ones are pretty economical to run. Not sure about warranty policy of Poundland but has decent reviews.

Found in Poundland & More, Kings Heath, Birmingham, plenty stock available. Looks national.

In few hours of running, it warms up pretty quick and throws a lot of heat, can be run @ 400W / 800W / 1200W and has on off for revolving function.

UPDATE: My boiler broke down yesterday and would not be fixed for a few days. This little sucker can heat a small room in a few minutes, and then you can turn one or two of the filaments off to reduce the power usage. Revolving function helps distribute hear as well.

It is cheap far eastern made stuff but in my case all the halogen tubes survived and is working well for now. Outside temperature is 2 degrees C but my little office is warm.

Not sure how long it would last but I am glad I spotted this when I was in dire need.

They work, the light is annoying and they are are a naturally clumsy thing, designed by someone with a fag packet and 10 minutes to spare, there are better heaters on the market for the same or a little more money. Hard to vote cold when it is a heater.

These are very good quality. Its your brain that needs rewiring. Had a similar one for last two years. Still going great. Just because it's not big brand or expensive , it is not poor quality. Same sells for much more in many big supermarkets.

Will be as economical(?) as any other electric heater with 400W / 800W / 1200W elements. No thermostat so may cost more to run than a similary-rated but thermostat-equipped alternative - assuming the desired temperature is ever reached.
Got a halogen 1200W from Wilko when it was £10. Warms you up very quickly. Tried it on wet laundry and it soon began steaming. It's the infra red than heats the water up perhaps like a microwave.
Did I guess right?
Might have little effect on other surfaces.
These are an old model (last years I believe). These are fairly flimsy but still slightly better than the current model. Easy to set up by just twisting two screws in the bottom. 400W is enough to keep me warm in an old listed building with a light coat on. I used to sell these up until recently and had a return rate of around 35% so KEEP THAT RECEIPT! Depending on how they are transported the the bars are fairly easy to break. Some were DOA (usually only 1 bar working) which explains the returns.

Can be found on the market for ~£14 (they are buying for between £6-8) but i'd absolutely avoid buying from markets unless you know you can return!
