    Average User Rating – This is based on our own research in product testing and user feedback. Clicking on each portable space heater takes you to Amazon’s product page where you can read customer reviews on the product you’re interested in.

    Best Value / Top Rated / Top Specs / Best Choice – Products that we consider to excel in a certain area such as value for money, reputation or technology have been given one of our aforementioned labels of recognition.

    Heating Element – This is the element/source that converts into heat typically via an electrical or battery powered source.

    Watts – The higher the wattage, the quicker the heater is able to heat up. Certain models allow you to adjust the wattage output to reduce heat.

    Oscillating – Some space heaters have an oscillating feature (notably tower models) which means that it rotates on its base or within the frame to circulate air around the room.

    Adjustable Thermostat – Most space heaters allow you to adjust the temperature digitally or via a dial.

    Overheat Protection – Practically all space heaters have a safety feature where the device will automatically turn itself off if it gets too hot. Certain models have a tip-over safety feature which turns itself off if it gets knocked over.

    Extra Features – Important points that have not been mentioned elsewhere in the table is explained here. You will see that some ceramic heaters have other useful features and benefits such as timer, adjustable thermostat, fan-only setting and much more.
