    They work fine if you use them right

    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.

    Best Heating Mat, Not Perfect

    By CuriousReptileGuy on May 24, 2018

    NOT INTENDED FOR A SOLO HEAT SOURCE. Although it helps provide reptile belly heat. Its not enough to heat the entire enclosure. Not recommended for cold rooms. Doesn't stick very well for very long. Requires a thermostat sold separately. Designed for glass terrariums only.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!?!
