Wonder what it’s energy efficiency rating is
It suppose to heat, so there will be some energy escaping the device...

I'm going to guess it is 100% efficient.
I think a Chinese factory must knock loads of these out. I've got the Sip turbofan and it looks identical, as do the aldi and lidl equivalents. Works pretty well at warming the garage up a bit. Mines only 2000w.

Well the fan will take a little.


Aye, true! I am daft me, but happy
Spot the difference!

The fact it says 2500w but the photo says 3kw , they can’t even get that right haha

It's actually feasible that any resistive appliance might draw anything from around 2500w to 3000w in this country given that the allowed voltage range in the UK is 216.2 to 253.0 volts

Next time you buy an electric kettle that says 3kw on the box you'll probably find it says something different on the base, or in the specs.

So how are you meant to before purchase work out how much something will cost to run when it’s can’t give you the right le output , all the ones I sell through out business tell you the max output and consumption rate .If it can go to 3kw then it’s a 3kw Heater not a 2.5

Fair enough mate but I could ask you the same question. How am I supposed to work out what your heater is gonna cost me to run when your product's stated max output probably only applies when the mains voltage tops over 250v when on average the mains in my area runs between 220v and 230v?

Here's an image from the base of my 'so called' 3kw Russell Hobbs kettle.

39699017.jpgYeah, I know how to work it out btw and it's probably marketed for half the world with varying standards. Maybe whoever did the pic didn't realise but I bet the stuff u sell comes from the same Chinese factories and you charge more.

But surely if it comes out cheaper than you work out that’s a good thing , Everyone loves saving a bit don’t they haha, also with the kettle I’d think it’s because the input to start a kettle will be higher and then it drips down until it has actually boiled then switches off . When you run them from a generator they say to times the max wattage by 2-3 times and that covers the startup it’s ridiculous

See my edit above, max wattage or current draw is important as a lot of appliances have a high surge current like refrigerators and the max wattage of the generator needs to be able to handle that surge for a short period only.
