Aqualogic or Ranco controllers

I'm thinking about getting either the Ranco or the Aqualogic. Can either one control two heaters simultaneously? I know they can do a heater and a chiller. But I would like to use it to control two heaters instead.

I looked up Aqualogic and I don't think it can control two heaters. I got to thinking, I guess it could if the heaters were plugged into the unit in parallel.

Any controller can control multiple heaters. You just need to plug either a power strip or something similar into the controlled oulet of the controller and then plug the heaters into that. All heater will turn on/off at the same time obviously.

I figured that once I thought about it for a second. Now I just need to find a heater(s) that I trust.
