when we use tere we plug them into a heavy duty power strip so that the outlet doesnt over heat and start a fire. also, the power strip provides a circuit breaker.

so the power strip magically lowers the power of the unit? and your circuit breaker box doesn't have a breaker in it? seems like your not too bright.

why not read what you've been saying. you said that by plugging these into your wall outlet the outlet gets too hot and can cause a fire from the large amount of current that the heater draws. then you said that by plugging it into a power strip plugged into that same outlet fixes this issue. any dolt would realize that the same amount of power is being drawn regardless of being plugged straight into the wall or through a power strip, and the heat would be the same at the outlet.

a power strip keeps the outlet from getting hot.

how does it keep it from getting hot? the power draw is the same! one could argue that the power strip actually adds resistance in the overall picture making things worse, not better.

Hey, the heater generates heat which gets conducted back to the outlet through the wire.


RIGHT? laugh out loud

Seems like a good (not great) deal on a ceramic heater. The oscillation seems neat - never had an oscillating one before.

@PP: That was my thought as well... :-/

I'm an engineer and I can assure you you're very incorrect...all receptacles are rated to either 15 or 20 amps on the 120v branch circuits in your house, this thing is only pulling 12 amps, but EVERY electrical connection in that circuit will be pulling 12A. A power strip has no such circuit breaker and quite frankly does nothing for you in this situation. Why spend half the price of the heater for the power strip? ridiculous logic you have, these other guys are right
