Anyone used an Envi space heater?

I looked at some information on the Envi electric panel space heater.
Anyone have one or can relate experience with it? It appears to be attractive, quiet, safe, and might work to keep the chill off in a small RV bedroom. But some reviews are not favorable. And 400 watts may not provide enough BTUs, especially to feel with no fan.

Yowzer! $120 for 400 watts? 400 watts really won't put a dent into heating your rig. They say 140 Sq.ft. (sounds optimistic even for a S&B). If you have 7 ft. ceilings that would be a total of 20 sq. ft. of floor space.

DW likes the tower type heater for supplimental heat. This is what we use. It does a nice job. Remote Control Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display-755320 at The Home Depot

We have a ceramic heater and a wire element heater plus an oscillating tower heater like historyljc described. They all have fans, make too much noise, take floor space which we don't have enough of in our bedroom, and the DW doesn't feel they are safe to leave running all night. We also have an oil-filled radiator type heater which is really ideal except it is too large and heavy for the RV. Hence the interest in the Envi. I'm not looking for other recommendations, just feedback about the Envi.

Envi sure has a lot of great reviews from reading their site. Interesting concept.

All floor "bath room" heaters are regulated to no more than 1500 watts, same as a hair dryer! Buy the cheapest and get the same heat as one that costs 5 times as much. Read the labels and they all say 1500 watts.
