Their countertop ceramic heater presents a modern and clean design in addition to smooth functionalities and user experience. The prominent orange stripe and sleek look of the heater make it a pleasing electric appliance honing the home environment. The automatic rotation is activated with one touch, providing a 45-degree wide-angle range of action. It also features anti-slip pads to ensure stability on different surfaces. Apart from heating for cold winters, this smart device also acts as a fan for the summertime. So small to stay in the palm of your hand, featuring a 600W high-power ceramic heating system, it heats up to 40 degree celsius. The carbon activated honeycomb sponge is integrated into the design to cut down incoming dust particles and prevent unpleasant mishaps.
