Health Benefits Of Electric Blankets

A quarter of people purchasing electric blankets do so for health benefits beyond general comfort.

Direct heat therapy is one of the main reasons for using an electric blanket. Applying heat to muscles increases blood flow; this enhances muscle nutrition and relaxation, which helps with healing and pain and eases sleep.


People who suffer from back pain, tension, or injuries may find relief through the application of heat to affected areas. Heat provided by electric blankets relieves muscle pain and soreness caused by arthritis and fibromyalgia. Those with Raynaud's phenomenon or post-polio syndrome may use heated bedding to avoid damage and relieve discomfort caused by poor circulation or cold intolerance. An electric blanket also allows users to maintain a more comfortable temperature and gain the general benefits associated with deep and uninterrupted sleep particularly when camping in near zero and sub zero temperatures.

Things to consider when buying a 12 volt electric blanket.

  1. Why do eBay, Amazon, Aliexpress etc etc electric blankets come without any type of heat control?

  2. eBay, Amazon, Aliexpress etc etc electric blankets rarely come with a manufacturer’s name or country of origin. Why?

  3. Actual verbal communication by phone is near non existant when buying from other cheap sources. You can call or email us anytime here in Australia!
    All of our 12vdc blankets come with full contact details in the documentation included with every sale.

  4. eBay, Amazon, Aliexpress and other outlets only offer a 30 day money back guarantee. All of our 12 volt electric blankets come with a full 12 month warranty and we are easily contacted!

  5. The internet of things is a confusing place to find what you are looking for.
    Unlike other so called ‘camping expert’ stores, we did the hard yards (instead of you having to do them) spending a year sourcing and testing 12vdc electric blankets including the testing of home type 240vac electric blankets connected to 12vdc/240vac inverters - both pure sine and modified/quasi sine types. The results of our testing are reflected in the brands and models of 12vdc electric blankets listed on our website along with the free information regarding 240vac electric blankets connected to 12vdc/240vac battery powered inverters.

  6. Why are Tek Trek 12vdc electric blankets so expensive compared to the cheapies on the internet?
    Both Electrowarmth & Comfy Cruise electric blankets are fully imported from the United States which after airfreight costs including insurance, and currency conversion costs being taken into consideration, the costs start to stack up rather quickly. Don’t forget that any imports into Australia now have a customs duty tax tacked on as well. Our prices also include Australia Wide delivery! As a matter of interest the average retail cost of an Electrowarmth in the US is $125-00 without delivery etc.
