To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
At first this product was amazing. Very comfortable and worked really well. But after an hour or two of use the controller/circuit boards had a short and melted causing the blanket to get extremely hot and probably would have caught fire if I didn't catch it. Be very careful trusting the automatic shut of, or leaving it plugged in after use.
Company contacted us and warranties the blanket the new one has a caution on the remote to make sure you don’t cover it up and always keep it out in the open so it doesn’t overheat but all in all new blanket works great and company did hold up to their end took a while but they came through they have a new person doing their warranty work and she is great.
Worked great for about one month then quit my wife used it every day I bought this one due to the long factory warranty but we tried for 6 months to get ahold of them left multiple messages and no return multiple calls never could speak with anyone on it at all so had a broken blanket in one month light just flashes on the remote.
My son purchased this for me on my birthday in October. This unit is suppose to have an automatic shut off........I don’t think so......I left it on last night and woke up this morning to an extremely hot controller looks like it was starting to melt. This is a dangerous product for $60!!!!! Buyer beware. Worst product I have ever purchased from Amazon and I am a frequent shopper!!! Ridiculous. I am lucky this did not catch my house on fire!!
I had this blanket for 3 months. I used it a only couple times a week for an hour or so in the mornings before work. The other day it made a popping sound when I turned it on and now it won't turn on at all. Took apart the controller and there is a burned spot on the inside face. I'm currently trying to figure out the "5 year warranty" they promise...ugh!
Update: Messaged the seller who gave me a number to call. They were SUPER nice and are sending me a new blanket. So A+ for customer service.
The material is amazing, super soft and fuzzy, it has three different heat settings which works out perfectly if you start to get too warm. It warms up fast which is a plus if you get cold a lot like I do. The cord isn't super long but I think it's enough. I bough the throw size and just place it over another blanket when I go to bed and I sleep amazing, plus it has a two hour timer so it shuts itself off! Great buy for the price, I'd recommend to anyone!
I really liked it, but it’s a bit smaller than I thought it would be. It also stopped working after 3 months of moderate use. Automatic shut off was also inconsistent. Sometimes, it would cut off after 15 mins. Really not worth what I paid. I should have paid another $10-15 For something better.
Crappy product!! Was a good blanket until it stopped working. I loved the softness and look of this blanket, it gave off good heat for about two weeks and then the blanket stopped working. The lights on the remote started flashing. I unplugged the blanket for a few minutes and plugged it back in. I did this several times. The blanket still wouldn’t work. I ended up throwing it away and buying a new blanket at Walmart for half the price which I have not had any issues with!
I looooooove this blanket! It's not very thick, but because it is heated, it doesn't need to be. It is very soft and comfortable, and it is longer than a lot of heated throws. This blanket has three settings, although I believe the high setting would be a bit too much. I have Fibromyalgia, which is aggravated when I'm cold. Medium is great for colder days, but the low setting works well for "everyday" use. It automatically turns off after about half an hour, which is great in case you forget to turn it off yourself. I would definitely recommend this blanket if you are chronically cold or want something extra to take the chill off during the cold weather months. Yes, as noted in other reviews, you can feel that the wires are in the blanket when you cover yourself, although I usually forget about them after a while. If you're just looking for a regular throw blanket, you might be happier with a thicker non-heated throw to avoid the wires.
