I purchased this as a replacement for my 17 year old Conair Heating Pad that I use every day at work for my shoulders/neck/back.
I chose this smaller size, as it is the perfect size for my office chair – the King version would be too large for an office type chair (better for bed perhaps?).
I have been using this on the low setting, and it is the perfect temperature to keep my back warm and my muscles looser during the day.
There are 4 heat settings, which can get quite warm.
There is a 2 hour time off, which I like, as it’s a SAFETY feature – one should not fall asleep with a heating pad on for both fire and burning considerations (i.e. if your face ends up on the pad with a high heat setting and pressure, I could certainly see injuries occurring).
It is comfortable and plush to touch, and it doesn’t make crinkly sounds like my old one did (I have misophonia – dislike of sounds – so the crinkling sound annoyed me – this pad is quiet).
It is also super light weight, and does fall off my chair when I get up.
The cord is decent, and you are able to detach it from the pad when you clean it.
I hope I get at least half the time out of this pad as I did my last one!
