its as safe as what you make it , just respect it as a mains appliance .

 

I agree mrmouse - we have used electric blankets on our beds for years BUT only switch them on to heat up the bed before going to bed and then switch them off - nothing nicer than climbing into a nice warm bed in the middle of winter. I would think if treated responsibly the hot bottle should be fine much better than the old hot water bottles - I have unpleasant memories of getting burnt with hot water trying to fill them up!

I think one important factor is overlooked here, the hot water bottle is NOT plugged into the wall socket when it is in use, so no danger of being electrified or a fire starting. The only problem that may arise, is leakage, but should not be before years of use, if ever.

Which means something might happen while it is charging, on the kitchen table or wherever you might charge it, before it is unplugged and taken to bed with you. Which I seriously doubt as 99.9999999999 % of electric items today only have a two pin plug. Believe me, it is much more safer to use than to make a painting these days :whistling:

Luckily, I've learnt that doing things in moderation stops allergic reactions, being sensible also helps.... like not buying potentially dangerous appliences.......:grin:

mmmmmm:thinking:......Yeah, and definitly no electric blanket for a bed wetting baby! Also a no,no for a dangerous hairdryer, angle grinder, bedside lamps, etc. All without an earth wire..... 2 pin plugs! Kyle, may I ask you, if your electric appliances still works with paraffin? :grin:

Heaven only knows what I'd be like without my heated blanket! Forgot to put it on early tonight so the bed is as cold as I am - which is pretty much close to frozen solid! (darn it's cold here tonight!)

 

We are looking for a gas heater as currently the entire house becomes a freezer when the sun goes down. Don't like the "plug in" heaters as they use too much electricity. Even the animals are feeling the change in weather and all join us on the bed or in our room at night.

 

Eskom is working in the area tomorrow (Sunday) so our power is going off at around 7am and will hopefully be back on around 7pm to 9pm - if we're lucky! (last time it was mid summer and it only came on close to midnight!) If it's cold tomorrow, then I'll be twisting hubby's arm to go for a drive into the countryside so that I can thaw out in the bakkie or car.

 

This cold is going to be something to get used to - I'm already freezing and shivering and it is not even "winter" here yet! The real snow is still on it's way... (although the nip in the air tonight tells me that there is probably a sprinkling again this weekend... brrrrrrrr.....)

Whoooooooosh, thats the sound of my point of view flying over, I am not worried about appliances where I am concerned, my genuine unadulterated concern was for an innocent child without the knowledge, experience or respect for electricity, I fix power supplies from 12volts to 10000volts, and regularly get my day ruined by stray bits of current, children should not have to experience dangerous electricity, ever, period.

PS if you ever invent an appliance that runs on paraffin or start seller such devices, I'll be the first to try one out! LoL...

Have a nice weekend Miems. :razz:
