Summary

The Soft Heat Luxury Micro-Fleece Heated Blanket is very soft and comfortable and comes with a low voltage heating system. It heats slowly and evenly and the wires are very thin. It has a preheat and hold feature, dual controllers and is machine washable and dryer safe which adds to its convenience.

The low voltage does mean that it takes more time to heat up and does not become as hot as a heating pad. It is energy efficient and will help you keep your heating bill low. It is available in different colors to suit your tastes. It will warm a bed very well so you don’t have to get a frosted sheet out of the way before you can sleep soundly.

Comparison

The blanket has been designed to provide a low relaxing heat and will not become as hot as other heated blankets. It is textured and will not easily slide off your bed as other soft blankets may. It is not a heating pad and will not feel warm to the touch, rather it provides a softer lower heat.

It is heavier than other heated blankets and will suit you if you like the warmth and weight of a thicker blanket. It is warm even when it is not turned on, but will take longer to heat up than heating pads or lighter heated blankets.

It covers a king size bed, but does not extend past the edges and cant be tucked in and the controllers are not the most durable. It will work well for beds or couches and is much larger than throws and softer than heating pads.

Verdict

The Soft Heat Luxury Micro-Fleece Heated Blanket does exactly as its name states. Its soft heat is well suited to your pets, temperature sensitive partner or grandmother. It will not become extremely hot and will soothe aching muscles and keep the chill away from your sheets. It is very soft but not very lightweight.

It does not heat quickly so if you want a fast heating blanket this one may be too slow for you. On the other hand,  if you like a fluffy comfortable blanket that does not become too hot to handle, and is warm even when it is not turned on,  then this relaxed low voltage blanket is the right one for you.
