Disadvantages: To much heat at times
In the last year the cold spells such as the snow and wild weather in regards to the high winds which make us all cold at night have made me appreciate the electric blanket I was given. I got mine in February this year and I found that although I never thought it would do me any good I have found the item to be a huge luxury and a great convenience for me to have.
The one I have is for a single bed and is a silent night electric blanket and the idea is to attach this item to the mattress you have and then attach the strings and make sure it is fastened enough so it cannot move. You have a few temperature settings and obviously number one is the lowest and number three is the highest.
When you put this item to setting number three usually within a few minutes the item has heated up and can be felt right under the sheeting for the bed you have got. There are little rivets throughout this blanket which have pieces of metal or conductor type material which help the bed heat up. You do need to plug the item into a power supply and wall socket otherwise you end up without any heat at all.
You can have the item on throughout the duration of the night which is pretty cool considering and although at times I would like it to be warmer especially when the colder weather comes around I find it very useful.
I was also happy to find my electric blanket was machine washable and safe to use in a tumble dryer as well and all this was for the price of £20 and I found that amazing. There are no problems in terms of lying down such as the item hurting you or causing you to sleep differently and the speed to which the item heats up is extremely satisfactory. I would recommend this item to anyone as this would be perfect for the nights when the cold weather can seriously make you cold.
Summary: A good item
