My friend is always cold and looked into electric blankets. They can form some type of field that the human body does not like. I dont remember the details besides deciding it's not good to sleep under them.(some of them.....all of them???)

Instead she cranks it full blast for an hour and turns it off before climbing into bed.

Just something to research if you care about that stuff.


I'm not worried about having to wear a tinfoil hat to bed...but fire risks can be real.

We have used them in the past and pre-heating the bed is a great option. Once heated up, your body heat will keep it warm.

But they're small--like 5 feet by 3 feet. And they can't be washed because the cord is hard-wired.

I think it's the same for 12-volt mattress pads, too. They're all for using in a bunk in a truck.

I've had the Soft Heat electric blanket mentioned by the OP for probably 8 years or so of fulltime use--on a MSW inverter until we got a PSW inverter a year or so ago. My only beef is that the fabric is kind of "sticky" (microfleece), so it kind of drags on the sheets when you're making the bed.

I have the full size on a queen bed, because I wanted only one controller. It hangs over the sides by about 4 inches, which works fine for us.
