re-edit, based mine on just using the 400w setting which with roughly be about 4p per hour..... using e7 about 2p per hours, but not 100% sure........

My dog loves ours, very warm when it's pointing at you but doesn't really warm up the room in general like an electric radiator or something similar might

As has been pointed out they don't heat up a room very well; but do heat what they're pointing at; the heat is instant also so they're very good for rooms you occasionally visit as you can turn it on when you go into the room and turn off on the way out.
Because of that they can be very cheap compared to an oil-filled radiator or similar that you'd need to leave on all the time.

i bought one of these ages ago for same price, havent they always been that price

Don't know!!

Their website says reduced from £12.50 and when I looked in argos earlier and they were £24.99 so I thought it was a good price and would share

Depends on the model of course, and how much you pay for electric but that's a bit low I think.

Very roughly though 1kw is at least 10p
so
100w lightbulb = 1p an hour
400w heater = 4p an hour
800w = 8p
1200w = 12p
etc

Very true, I bought mine for the lean to porch that we built, as hubb and i are smokers ( trying to give up lol ) we got it for occasional use, as we don't smoke in the house, handy for when friends and family visit that smoke lol :oops:

These are good value heaters - bought a couple from Wilko last year. Out of season they get knocked down to around £4 each!

Cost about £5 an hour to run gives a lovey searchl light glow and fire hazard to boot :whistling:

Hi Troll.

At the highest setting (1200w or 1.2kw), it will consume 1.2 units per hour. Depending on how much you pay for a unit, it could be anywhere between 10-22p per hour. Where did £5 come from? Most of us will only buy the one and run the one, not a truckload trying to heat up the royal albert hall.

They have 3 comments in 3 years so what can you expect. other comment just as stupid! :x

we should be able to promote or bury comments. wirralwave = grade A troll of the highest order.

They cost a fortune to run and don't give out much heat. I used to have one when I lived at home with the parents my bedroom had no heater!

All electric heaters turn electricity into heat with the exact same efficiency... that's physics

The only reason electric heating is more expensive than gas (etc) is because approx 1/3rd of the power is lost in transmission through the grid.
