Deep Blue Bettastik Heater 7.5 watt- anyone have one?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Has anyone ever used anything from this company? I'm looking for some small heaters for my bettas. I noticed this company makes a small HOB filter as well.

Anyway I ordered one off Amazon. It's made in the USA. I'll post what I think of it when it arrives. There was not much info on it via Amazon.

It doesn't seem like the greatest buy since there are almost as many 1-star ratings as 5-star. At least for me I like to find stuff that has at least 3 times the amount of 5-star ratings than 1-star; granted, I didn't read through the ratings so it may just be people that are complaining for no legitimate reason.

Yeah I take all one star and five star with a grain of salt. If it's no good I'm only out less than $10.

Arrived today from Amazon. The Amazon listing said made in USA but when I got the box open and looked at the package it's made in China. I try to buy American. It's in the tank now and I will plug it in shortly. It's not adjustable so I will be watching the temp closely.

Stupid heater has super short cord. Can't use it until I get an extension cord. Ugh!

I've not used their heaters but I do have 3 deep blue triton pumps, they've all been great apart from one cracking an impeller last year. Was a cheap and easy fix.

I'm using this heater in my aquafarm tank. I'll update how I like it. Just found an extension cord and plugged it in.

Be careful, I bought some of these for shiggles used and they are horrible. They have no thermostat so just keep heating the water. I am using one on a 3g tank thats cycling and it kicked the temperature up to 90 which will change based on room temperature.
