ELEKTRA COMFORT PLATINUM RANGE (2203) ABOUT R554–R960 (S–K); WWW.SP-AFRICA.COM
This comfy but bulky blanket has a fleecy finish. Heat distribution is relatively good. The temperature on maximum setting, over a specified time, was the highest of the blankets tested – the safety system kicked in and the temperature dropped when it reached high levels. The cool-off, however, is too quick. Intuitive digital controls allow for easy temperature adjustment, and the backlit display is easily visible at night. The elasticated skirting required a bit of tugging to secure the fit.
VERDICT: One of the most efficient and user-friendly blankets in our tests. An excellent, affordable all-rounder.
