    They work fine if you use them right

    By perfectponies on Nov 13, 2018

    Always, ALWAYS use these mats with a thermostat. It doesn't have to be expensive (in spite of what some people will tell you), it just has to work. Don't use them without one or you run the risk of doing serious harm to your animals. These mats don't work forever, and of course they don't stay sticky Always, ALWAYS use these mats with a thermostat.

These mats don't work forever, and of course they don't stay sticky forever but if you don't move your enclosure around a lot, they don't really need to be. They're safe to use on glass and plastic, for those who use them for free standing tubs. As long as you put them on a thermostat they will not get hot enough to melt plastic. … more

  • It won't stay

    By on

    It won't stick and stay for more then an hour. I am not very happy with it. It is a night heat source for my turtle. If it would stick it would work.

  • Broke after three days

    By on

    I just got this heater a few days ago. It was working fine, although it runs MUCH hotter than the listed temps. Mine was up to 120 degrees. Today, though, I unplugged it to switch some plugs around and the plugged it back in and it now won't kick back on anymore. Apparently unplugging it causes it to malfunction!?!

  • The heat pad cracked the tank.

    By on

    I followed all the instructions for placing the pad under the tank, it hadn't been on for more than a couple hours when I heard a loud pop and checked my tank. The bottom had cracked in the corner.
