Mini Space Heaters Make Amazon.sg Bestseller List

Barely anybody heads out of home without a jacket or a umbrella these days.

That’s because the weather has been unusually chilly, a result of El Nino-La Nina weather dynamics plus literal arctic wind from the Polar Vortex. The last time the Polar Vortex affected South East Asia so dramatically was in 2018, when temperatures dropped to as low as 8 degrees Celsius in Hanoi.

Singaporeans, who are much better attuned to the tropical heat than the soggy, chill damp that has become the norm these days, have been calling this weather #sgwinter.

So it’s not entirely surprising that this is when the mini space heaters start to appear on the best-sellers list on Amazon.sg

After all, Amazon.sg wasn’t around in 2018.

Let’s take a look of 5 of these mini space heaters and try to imagine them in our homes. Ready?

WJJZSHS Mini Plug-in Desktop Heater

At the bottom of the list of this Mini Plug-in Desktop Heater by WJJZSHS. Contrary to its name, it does not appear to be USB-powered. However, it does come in a compact size (9.25 x 3.62 x 9.25 inches) and even has a handle so you can carry with you wherever you go.

Curiously, it has a “rapid fever” function which I can only assume is the turbo option.

Also note-worthy is their copy for the production description,”… Winter is coming, when you feel cold, no matter how the city develops, he always feels lonely.”

Insert hot elf joke here.

DeLonghi Ceramic Heater

Perhaps the most handsome looking of the lot, DeLonghi’s Ceramic Heater is 7.5 x 4 x 11 inches in size, which is on par with a medium-to-large desktop speaker. Perhaps your colleagues or family members might think you just bought a fancy new portable speaker. That is, if it is switched off. When it’s switched on, you’re bound to feel the heat as it goes from 900W all the way to 1500W.

Price: $113.99 + $26.01 delivery

Honeywell UberHeat Ceramic Heater

This Honeywell heater which follows the form factor of a regular desktop fan, is only 1.72kg. It’s impressive how they’ve managed to cram 1500W of power in this thing. Reviews touch on again and again on how they’ve misjudged the Honeywell by its diminutive appearance. It is definitely powerful enough to heat up a small flat.

Just don’t let your cat sit on it.

Price: $95.53 (free delivery)
