Electric Blankets are very useful and effective in warming up your winter nights, especially for those of us going solo in a single bed. This is an electric heating device which is either placed above the top bed sheet or below the bottom bed sheet. These blankets have control unit which adjusts the flow of heat of the blanket. They can be used to pre heat the bed before use or can also be used to keep the bed warm while you are sleeping. The Electric blanket works like a heating pad as it has a heating element which is inserted in the fabric and when plugged in, it starts heating up your bed. This has a temperature control unit which cleverly manages the heat in the blanket. Some electric blankets use carbon fibre wires to heat which are less heavy and much easier and comfortable to carry. Like bed sheets these blankets also come in different sizes to fit your bed.
