Features

  • Three Settings Remote Control

    This blanket comes with a remote control which includes three heat settings - low, medium, and high. The heat ranges from 90 - 107 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Built-in Safety Feature

    The heating wires are arranged throughout the blanket so the heat is evenly distributed. There's also a safety feature included so that if the blanket overheats the heat will shut off at a pre-determined cut-off point.

  • Machine Washable

    This product can be easily removed from the power cord and washed in the machine, as long as the temperature is less than 86 degrees F. However, it should be hung out to dry rather than put in the dryer.

  • Big-sized Blanket

    The blanket measures 72x86 inches, which is large enough to completely cover an adult. This is a very comfortable, large size for either a throw blanket or a nighttime blanket.

  • Automatic Turn-off Feature

    Set the timer at your preferred heat level, lie down, and let your worries float away. If you fall asleep, the heat will keep you warm for eight hours and then shut itself off automatically. This is also a great feature if you simply forget to turn the heat settings off.

  • Detachable Cord

    The power cord can be removed from the blanket easily if you aren`t going to be using the heat. This is a useful feature because the cord could really get in the way if you have no use for it. It`s also great for when you want to throw the blanket in the washing machine.

Pros

  • Flannel is Warm and Cosy

    This blanket is made of soft, comfortable fleece, which is warm and also pleasant to lie underneath. It's the ideal material to use for this type of product. The material even helps to retain the heat, so you may not even need to turn the heat settings on.

  • 24 Month Warranty

    The manufacturer is providing a 24-month warranty in the case that there are any issues with the quality of the product. If there are, you can contact the customer service department and they`ll help solve the problem to your satisfaction.

  • Remote Control Easy to Use

    In this world of advanced high tech, here for this blanket, we have a remote control which is very easy to use. There are only three heat setting to choose from which are high (1) medium (2) and low (3).

  • ETL Safety Certification

    This blanket is certified ETL, which is a safety certification for the safety and security industry. The wires have been evenly spread throughout the item for efficient heat distribution. There's also an overheating feature where the heat shuts off at a pre-defined temperature.

  • Excellent Customer Reviews

    The majority of the reviews for this product were raves. In fact, 76% of the reviews were five stars. This is a very well-regarded product among past customers, although not without any issues.

  • Saves Energy

    The product uses less energy than other similar products because of the way the wires are distributed throughout the blanket. This will lower your electricity bill while keeping you toasty warm.

  • Excellent Customer Service

    This company has a reputation among customers for having an excellent customer service department that really cares about making its users happy. Any issues that you have with the product will be dealt with swiftly and pleasantly to your satisfaction.

Cons

  • Only Uses 110V Power

    Unfortunately, this product is only useful for people who use 110V power. Those who use 220V or another voltage will have to purchase a currency converter to use this product fully.

  • Automatic Turn Off, But Not On

    The blanket includes a feature which allows it to shut off automatically. However, you can't set it to turn on automatically at a certain time. A few customers were interested in such a feature.

  • Only One Color

    The large blanket is only available in one color, and that color is gray. This gray is a dull and drab color. All in all, then, the blanket is not very attractive-looking. The blanket would be much more attractive to customers if it was available in a variety of colors.

  • Power Cord Too Short

    The power cord spans a length of 4.1 meters, which, although fairly long, may not be long enough to reach an out of the way plug. You need a long cord to use this blanket so that if you move around in your sleep you don't accidentally yank it out of the wall.

  • High Price-point

    Compared to other similar products on the market, the price of this blanket is quite high. Some of the competing products are also more attractive and available in more than one color, for a lower price.

Does It Really Work?

Several of the customer reviews mentioned that the blanket didn`t heat up to the extent they were expecting, or only got warm but not hot. This seems problematic. Many of the other customers were pleased with the heating, so it`s not a universal problem. It could be a glitch with just a few of the products. Any such issue should be taken to customer service. The company has an excellent customer service department that is always pleased to help their customers.

How it's Different from Competitors

As mentioned, the price is on the high side for products of this type, and other similar products generally are offered in a variety of colors. There are products that have a five-year or three-year warranty, compared to this product which only offers two years. Most products do have one remote with three settings like this one, which is easy to use. Many also have an overheating safety feature, but the times the heater switches off vary from two hours to ten hours. In terms of attractiveness, this blanket was the least attractive of all blankets of this type due to its bland gray color.

Save Money

The blanket itself isn`t cheap, but it is very energy efficient. It heats in a way that conserves energy compared to other products of this kind. Therefore it should help to lower your electric bill somewhat - while keeping you incredibly warm at the same time. In the long run, this should save you a good amount of money.
