Heating pad with timer warms the bed

Description
The heating pad is 120 x 80 cm. It is used together with a timer, so that the heat is on for a maximum of 45 minutes.

An incontinence protection pad is used on top of the heating pad.

Authors comments
Do not lie or sleep on the heating pad; it can get too hot and you don't know what will happen if it gets wet. The timer has a 2-pole switch that completely turns off the current.

  1. I bgohut this for my aging cat, and despite the warnings ( Don't use this for animals ), I've used it and he's loved it. On the lowest setting, it is warm without hotspots, and when wrapped in a towel, it provides a very subtle, even heat. The controller is large, and I could see how someone with arthritic fingers might have an easier time operating it. The single slider moves easily, and there is a bright red LED to indicate that the unit is on, just in case you can't tell by touch. Overall construction seems a bit chintzy cheap plastic with a flimsy fabric cover, but as long as it continues to do the job, I won't complain.

  2. I purchased this in hopes of finding something that would heat up my dobe`s dog bed consistently as he tends to get chilled easily and is arthritic..This fits the bill just right with no bells and whistles but holds and distributes heat nicely with no auto shutoff so he stays warm nicely thru the cold evening nights without blasting the heat way up!!!Perfect for the cat or dog lovers wishing to make their animal comfy and cozzzzy on the cold days or evenings for a value price!!!Now to just get him out of BED to go outside!!!
