Works very well.
, 11 Nov. 2010
Good soft fleece mattress cover part that fits a double sized mattress exactly.
Good elasticated skirt that should fit even deep mattresses. Doesn't slip at all on the mattress.
Still works fine with an additional mattress cover over the top.
Consists of a pillow section (unheated), a body section and a feet section on both sides.
Quick to heat up the bed (approx 15 mins).
Fantastic on a cold night!
Limited settings if used with an additional timer switch (see below).
Two small plastic plates (matchbox sized in area) on the top edge of the mattress about 6 inches below the pillow area where the controls connect. Would have been better placed on the side, however personally they don't bother me at all.
There are four electronic switches on each controller. (1 controller on each side)
(1) An on/off slider power switch which allows you to totally switch it off when required.
Three further single press buttons that function only when the power switch is set to on.
(2) A body heat control which has 10 settings (0-9). 0 is off, 9 is hottest.
(3) A feet heat control which has 10 settings (0-9). 0 is off, 9 is hottest.
(4) A duration timer which has 4 settings (1hr, 5hrs, 8hrs, 12hrs).
Pressing these buttons repeatedly makes them cycle through the possible settings. This is easy enough to do even in the dark as each one has an associated LED display.
One thing to note is that when the power switch is turned on the other three settings initialise to 9,9 and 1hr. Bear this in mind if you are thinking of using an additional timer switch to turn it on at a certain time in the evening.
Note also that the duration timer does not allow a permanently on setting. It will always turn it off eventually (max 12hrs) if left unattended and not reset.
The contollers hang down about 2ft below the mattress level (so about floor level) and then have power cords of about 4ft to the plugs.
