    Amazing heater, but needs tipover protection UPDATE after one year of ownership: This little heater continues to impress me. I don’t know how it would perform in a really cold climate, but here in Northern California, where nighttime winter temperatures rarely go much below freezing, it’s outstanding at heating a small space quickly. The room where I now work is unheated; it was converted from being the house’s garage. I use a deLonghi oil radiator heater for the main heat in this room, but off course it takes a long time to warm up. The Lasko heats the area around my desk quickly while the deLonghi is warming up. After the deLonghi is warm, I switch off the Lasko. This combination works well for me, and using the Lasko this way allows me to conserve power by using the deLonghi at a lower power setting.I was impressed enough with the Lasko that I ordered a second one (a model 103, identical except for having a red front). I use one in a separate building behind my house and the other in an unheated room inside my house. Neither Lasko is my main heater. They just provide heat while the oil radiators come up to temperature. They also occasionally provide a relatively low power supplemental source of heat as an alternate to using an oil radiator heater at a higher power setting.After a year of ownership, I’m raising my original four star rating to five stars. The price is so low and the heater works so well that the little guy deserves it.My original review:This little guy puts out an impressive amount of heat. It won’t heat a large or even medium sized space, but if you need to heat under your desk or very near your person, it definitely puts out the heat. It works well in my 8′x 9′ office in a standalone unheated, uninsulated brick building. I’ve only owned it for two weeks, so I can’t attest to its durability, but its three year warranty does offer some assurance.Ironically, I canceled the Lasko after ordering it and ordered a Vornado Personal Vortex 375/750 watt heater instead, but Amazon was unable to cancel the Lasko in time and shipped it. I left it packed in the box for a week, intending to return it… until I became frustrated with the Vornado’s pathetic heat and out of curiosity, opened the Lasko and tried it. I was immediately impressed with the heat it generates, so much so that I’ve returned the Vornado and ordered a second Lasko MyHeat.My main use for the two Lasko’s will be supplementing the oil filled heater in my office, which during the winter can be as cold as low forties Fahrenheit when I open it in the morning. The Lasko’s will provide immediate heat while the oil-filled heater slowly heats up.A secondary use for one Lasko will be cold weather camping in my truck. The power draw is low enough that I can power it using the deep cycle battery I carry when traveling.My only real complaint about the Lasko is the lack of any tip-over protection. A thermostat would be nice, but for this price, I’m not complaining. However I am knocking off one star for the lack of tip-over protection. This is my one concern about camping with this heater. I don’t use heat while sleeping so it won’t be a problem for me, but for anyone who camps with it and leaves it on while sleeping, you’ll need to be very careful to prevent it being accidentally knocked over during the night and starting a fire. I plan to affix Velcro to the bottom to protect against tipover.Other than that, this is an outstanding little heater. Its looks won’t impress people, but it will keep a small space warm while consuming very little power.UPDATE: I’ve used my Kill-A-Watt meter to confirm the wattage of nine electric space heaters. Virtually all of them have actual wattages that are below the claimed rating. The exception: both of my Lasko MyHeats. Lasko claims 200 watts, but one of mine has an actual wattage of 211 and the other 202. By comparison, the Vornado Personal Vortex Heater, which I originally wanted but ended up returning, claims 375/750 watts, but the unit I had was only 326/696 watts. I don’t say this to disparage Vornado. Nearly every other space heater I’ve tested had lower wattages than claimed, except these two little Lasko’s.General information about buying electric space heaters:=============================================I’ve owned and used electric space heaters since 1988, mostly DeLonghi oil filled radiators. When I recently began looking for a heater that would warm up a room faster, I was frustrated at the lack of hard, objective, facts about electric space heaters. Even the manufacturer websites often fail to mention or makes it hard to learn the most basic information you need to know, such as wattage ratings and warranty lengths. Not even Consumer Reports has enough information to really inform a consumer. Therefore it’s up to us as consumers to share what we know. The rest of…
