I found your review of the Eluto. Did you publish info on the others you tested? Would love to see the results. Thank you.
No I did not but I can retest the others, One thing I did notice it the Non Timer versions I bought used less power when hooked up to the Dometic PLB 40, Where the Eluto version used between 5 and 9% of the PLB 40's power the non timer version used between 5 and 7%. and when doubled over they really work as good as a Household 240/110v Electric Blanket,

I always forget to turn off the 240v electric blanket and end up waking up when I get to hot so when it comes to the 12v models I think the ones with the Timer are Great for my use, But if you have the one without the Timer and Turn it off when you hit the Sack then they are just as good, Or if you want it on all the time then they are the better Choice because you don't have to keep turning it back om like you do with the Timer Models,

If you want I could always retest them for you,

Hope that helps.

Of course the Legitimate ‘ExPo Guy would connect to an adjustable interval timer. Switching on/off at whatever duty cycle user is comfortable with.
Well they use so little power it really is not needed
The ones with the Timer use 30.62w per cycle on MAX and they have 3 power settings so on Low they will use 20.48Wh and Less.

when you camp and sleep with an electric blanket is it over you or under you?
With these ones you can do either and Doubled up they get even warmer because it puts twice the number of elements together,

But fold it double and lay on it works to warm a cold bed but if you are cold they make a Great Wrap on a Cold night or for any other time your Cold

Thanks. I don't think you need to retest for me but if you run across something new, please share. Otherwise, it sounds like both types can work well, I just have to decide whether I lean toward absolute efficiency (no timer) or convenience. I appreciate the info!

Well I have also been playing with Greenhouse/Glasshouse Tube Heaters that run on 110/240v, Depending on the size they range from 45w for the 1 foot model up to 300w for the 6 foot versions, For inside an SUV the 1 foot version would be enough to keep the cold at bay, I tried it out and put it in a Large Box and it got over 45*c in there.
