Sunbeam Quilted Fleece Heated Blanket
This is a very popular heated blanket that is also very affordable.
In terms of the design of the actual blanket itself, on the outside is the 100 percent polyester. It is a quilted fleece so somewhat soft to the touch.
In terms of the design inside, it has a channel construction that keeps the heating wires from moving around too much.
What sets this blanket apart is the ThermoFine technology proprietary to Sunbeam. What that does is it monitors for your body temperature and the temperature of the room around you. When those rise and fall, it actually adjust the temperature of the blanket.
In terms of the controller, Sunbeam offers a couple of different types of controller options.
With this blanket, in particular, you get the EasyPro. It’s very easy to use, on and off button, and then it has 10 settings from low all the way to high. One to 10 in terms of heat settings. You get two controllers with this blanket, so one for each side. This is great if you sleep with a partner, so each can adjust the side to match the heat that you actually want.
There’s also a 10-hour auto shut-off feature. You leave it on for 10 hours and it will shut off by itself. Definitely a good feature.
In terms of colors, you have seven color options and is machine-washable and dryable.
In terms of setup, it’s a very easy setup.
The plug clicks in very easily, there’s some clips on the side to hold it in place. Then you plug it into the wall, and you’re good to go.
The one thing that’s confusing is you have one plug and two controllers. With other blankets, you have two controllers that have two plugs. It’s really easy to know which controller is controlling which side of the blanket. So it’s a little bit confused.
In terms of feel on the outside, rubbing my hand along the outside, it’s somewhat soft to the touch, but it is polyesters, so there is some roughness as well. It’s not very cozy, though, not very thick.
In terms of heat, when you set it to 10, there is a great cloud of warmth under there, but not the warmest you can feel under electric blanket. I think if you pair this with a comforter, it can be a very good choice.
In terms of heat distribution, there’s good heat distribution with this blanket. The wires are spaced pretty close together.
Who I think this heated blanket might be a good fit for?
First off, if you’re looking for something more affordable, something on the lower price end, I would definitely check it out.
Right now for a twin-size, it is $77, which is very good deal for what you’re getting.
In addition, if you want something to pair with a comforter or a blanket, to just add some soothing warmth for aches and pains, I would definitely check this out.
It’s not the hottest electric blanket that I’ve tried, but it does add some nice soothing warmth.
Last but not least, if you sleep with a partner, I would definitely check out this electric blanket. You get two controllers with the queen and king-size, one for each side. You and your partner can adjust the actual heat of your side to match exactly what you need.
Who I think this heated blanket may not be the best fit for?
First off, do you want something that’s going to get very hot or at least very warm? I would look elsewhere. This is closer to medium in terms of warmth, definitely not the hottest blanket I’ve tried.
In terms of feel, it is on the thinner side. If you want something cozy or fluffy, probably not the best pick for you.
SoftHeat Luxury Fleece Electric Heated Blanket
This is another very popular electric blanket. On the outside, you have a micro fleece, which is very nice and soft to the touch. Inside, there’s micro fill that adds body to the blanket.
When it comes to the wires that move throughout the blanket and that heat it up for you, you can’t really feel this blanket. The wires are a lot thinner than wires in other blankets.
When it comes to the distribution of heat, these wires are spaced closer together. Only 3 inches versus 5 inches, which you find in some other heated blankets.
This is results in better heat distribution.
It has a 10-hour shut-off, which means it will shut off by itself after 10 hours.
In terms of voltage, which is something that is very important with electric blankets, it’s under 25 volts,
making it a low-voltage blanket. It is listed by UL as non-hazardous.
There are 10 heat options. Using a controller, you go from low, all the way to ten.
You get two controllers. Each side of the blanket is controllable in terms of heat. If you sleep with a partner, this definitely a great feature.
If you’re looking for something with a low voltage, this definitely will work for you. Also, if you want to keep your heating bill low, it is a really good choice. It uses between .01 and .10 cents of kilowatts per night.
In terms of color, you can choose between five color options. In terms of size, you have twin, full, queen and king.
