Great compact heater – 50W Submersible Fish Tank Aquarium Water Heater (AC 220~240V / 2-Flat-Pin Plug / 100cm-Cable) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Reasonable length on power cord - Does everything it needs to do - Comes with two suction cups?
Cons:
- Temperature dial is a little stiff
Other:
Draws an average of 0.27 amps, so based on the equation p = i x v it draws 64 watts, leaving me reasonably satisfied that it is a 50W heater. I didn't and don't trust fully submerging it simply because IPX ratings are somewhat arbitrary.
Bottomline:
Build quality is fine, and although I haven't tried submerging the unit myself, it seems to meet all expectations I had.
