Kudox Electronic Heating Element Controller
Worked for 5 mins.... Box got lost so had to buy another.... Broken one is still on seat of my van awaiting a large amount of hammer time

The heat is on....
Very smart looking, easy to understand and operate.
With the price of electronics measured in penny's these days, it would be good if this unit was a bit cheaper, although far cheaper than many of it's rivals

Towel rail heater controller.
This unit fills a need to control the power input of towel rails in order to keep electricity costs down.
A nice unit, but, the pcb style terminals are near the casing and are difficult to get stranded flexible cables into, such as the one to the towel rail..
Worth having though.

Fiddly but worth it.
I've fitted a number of these and they seem to be a great alternative to leaving the radiator element on all the time as many people seem to. Besides that being VERY uneconomical, the result of draining the system down with the element switched on is an instantly burnt out element. And at Â£40-80 for a new element that proved expensive for a customer of mine who lost 3 in one go!
They are reasonably easy to fit but the wiring points are dead fiddly and only take very short stripped core which means you need to be very careful to get the wires locked in tight. Not hard to do, just as I said, fiddly.
3 stars on reliabilty as I have replaced one of these recently that had only been in situ for a couple of years.
In my opinion its a bit pricey and could be better deisgned to use the space IN the back box rather than sticking out as an ugly carbunkle.
