    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. 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 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

    By Concini on Dec 11, 2018

    Had this for over a week now was going to see if it would get any better but still send off little to no heat for my bearded dragon have it on the side of tank exactly like directions shown and I can literally put my hand on the inside glass tank where the heater is and on the device itself and literally Had this for over a week now was going to see if it would get any better but still send off little to no heat for my bearded dragon have it on the side of tank exactly like directions shown and I can literally put my hand on the inside glass tank where the heater is and on the device itself and literally it’s luke warm at most thought this would produce enough heat to just warm the inner side of the tank at least to the point that the air would be warm I wasn’t expecting it to be steaming hot wouldn’t want that but anything more than the device being warm to the touch and that’s all will not keep anything warm the slightest if I could give it half a star I would I have bought from chewy a lot and I never had a problem but this product does not work or at least the one they sent me doesn’t work thank you everyone hope I helped … more

  • So much bigger than I expected

    By on

    It works really well, but, the thermostat I have for it is busted or something. It keeps dipping cold. I got the thermostat elsewhere, but of the proper brand, so I have no one to blame but myself. I keep it on the side of the tank and they like laying up against it.

    Great product, my lizard loves her house and her heater. As always excellent customer service and speedy delivery. Chewy is the best and I highly recommend them for all your pets needs. The stand behind their products and their customer service.

  • Reptile and general purpose heater

    By on

    This flat surface heater can be used in different ways - I put it under the box our tortoise sleeps in with a probe thermometer. When powered by an adjustable voltage in a cool place, any desired temperature can be maintained.

  • Best way to keep heated

    By on

    These mats are the best way to keep a gecko tank heated. I do wish they sold them in multiple sizes, as some of my tanks are smaller than 30 gallons.

  • alternative use

    By on

    I know it is for reptiles but we do have 2 pet lovebirds.Let's see if I can explain this. The bottom of the bird's cage is like the sides and top.setup. The cage also comes with a tray that catches paper and bits of food I place the heater on the tray but under the cage. Lovebirds don't poop where they sleep so we place the heater under the spot where they sleep offering more gentle warmth during the winter months. Works great and less expensive than the pet stores

  • Undertank heater

    By on

    I have purchased reptitherm undertank heaters before for my leopard geckos who benefit greatly from them but I was very surprised at how fast the shipping was. I ordered on Thursday afternoon and it was at my door Saturday. Heater works great under a glass tank but I have found you always need a rheostat because without one, its just too hot and the geckos will not sit on it.
