    Lol the increments are uneven (3 then 4 then 3 then 4...) they probably rounded...

      My initial thought on that was that it worked out for the degrees C but after doing the math that aint it, my current guess is due to the rheostat in place that is the approximate temp that will be produced with the voltage being put out by the rheostat.

        After using these for awhile I have found the marking are for decoration only. You just have to get it in the tank and adjust it, they do adjust very easily unlike those jagers you practically need pliers to move. Other than that and the stupidly short cords they hold temp pretty well actually. I have a 300w that is doing well in a 55g now and I haven't been electrocuted......yet.

            The short cord just requires lots of extension cords

                its not the extension cords that worry me, its getting that plug out of the water so that you CAN use an extension cord that would have me twitching a bit.

                  Just a quick update, been holding temp fine so far. No condensation inside the unit. Still has a stupidly short cord.

                    So you made mention of 'no condensation...I have a fairly new heater in my 55 that has a small bit. Is it bad?

                      Re: Has anyone used these heaters?

                      Yes and no, I have at least 2 or 3 that show some and have been running for long periods (1+ years) with no problems. Its my personal belief that a heater that condensates is not necessarily garbage, perhaps just had some moisture in it upon assembly. Don't get me wrong, I would prefer no moisture whatsoever in my electrical equipment but this hasn't caused me issues, keep in mind I have only had droplets form on the glass, not a puddle in the bottom of the heater.

                        That's good to hear Matt. Glad those heaters are working out even if they have short cords.
