Update: this thing works as well as a conventional 25W Visitherm heater...
I had time to run some tests over the long weekend in my 4g test rig (seen previously in this
test of the 15W hydor heater). A few preview comments:
- Over a 24-36 hour period, establishes the same (actually slightly better) temp differential to room temp as a 25W Visitherm
- Did not burn down my house (disclaimer: in no way is this intended to be a representation of the safety of this setup, it merely reflects my personal experience)
- Did not blow up the voltage converter (ran slightly warm to the touch and this is with continuous operation of the heater -- ie thermostat continuously on -- for 24-36 hours which is unlikely in normal use)
