Lidl’s Bargain Heated Blanket Returns to Shelves Today and Costs Just 1p to Run


Lidl's popular winter gadget is back in stores today and it could save you money on your energy bills. The discount supermarket chain has brought back its Silentnight Comfort Control heated blanket, which costs just 1p to run.

A Great Alternative to Heating

The heated blanket is a great alternative to putting the heating on, as it is much cheaper to run. It costs just £19.99 for a single, £24.99 for a double, and £29.99 for a king size. With an energy consumption of only 40W, it can save you a significant amount of money compared to heating your whole house.

Run for 8 Hours at Just 8p

According to CheckaTrade, running your heating per hour can cost an average of 7p per kilowatt-hour. This means that if you have your heating on overnight for eight hours, it could cost you £13.44. In contrast, Lidl's heated blanket costs just 8p to run for eight hours.

Features and Availability

The heated blanket is made of polyester microfleece and comes with a single detachable control with three heat settings. It takes 15 minutes to heat up to 37C and has over-heat protection, allowing you to use it safely all night long. The blanket is available in single, double, and king sizes and can be purchased in-store at Lidl.

Compare Prices and Find the Best Deal

While Lidl offers competitive prices for the Silentnight gadget, it's always a good idea to shop around and compare prices. Other retailers such as Asda, Matalan, and Argos also offer similar heated blankets at different prices. Price comparison tools like Google Shopping can help you find the best deal.

Electric Blankets and Energy Consumption

Electric blankets are designed to fit below the bottom sheet and are typically used to pre-warm a bed. During the pre-warming phase, they have a relatively high power consumption. Once you are in bed, the blanket should be turned down to the sleep setting, which uses less electricity. It's important to use electric blankets safely and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Overall, Lidl's bargain heated blanket is a cost-effective and energy-efficient solution to keep warm during the winter months. Don't miss out on this money-saving gadget!
