I'm searching for a new room heater for the winter. Something portable that I can move between bedroom and bathroom.
I'm looking for a very particular heater,
a 1200W 3-bar portable oscillating halogen electric heater.
I have one, which still works, but it's not in the best condition since I dropped it. The case has come apart on one side. I could probably lever it back together with a screwdriver........
These used to be available everywhere several years ago, then only in supermarkets, for two years only, then in the "cheap" shops such as The Reject Shop and Cheap as Chips. Now I can't find one anywhere.
I've been online at all the usual stores, then went to ebay and Amazon.
ebay has them, but in the UK and they don't ship them to Australia.
Amazon has a slightly different model which is fine, but also doesn't ship them to Australia.
Why are these heaters no longer allowed in this country? They're effective and efficient.
Last year I was able to find a smaller 800W 2-bar version, but in terms of heating more than my feet when it is right beside me, it's completely useless.
Can anyone out there please let me know if they find where I can purchase a:
1200W portable oscillating Halogen 3-bar electric heater.
Must be new.
I don't want a used one, since I can't be sure how old it might be or how well (or not) it has been treated.
