I'm not sure about the 7.5 watt heater because I've never owned one. And 1 gallon is pretty small so I wouldn't want to encourage you to put a heater in it. Maybe someone who keeps a fish in that size can give you better info.
Personally, I don't like anything that I can't control the temp. on but I know there are plenty of folks here who use smaller heaters without problems. I started out with 1.5 gallon tanks (Tetra) that I was able to keep the 25w heaters in. They're taller than they are wider so if you have room for 1 gallon, you probably have room for the 1.5 gallon. Like this one:

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Okay thanks for the help my b day is in 10 days and maybe I can get him a new setup I am asking for a 3 gallon is this enough for him a small heater and a snail

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

That sounds perfect :) Most of my bettas are in 2.5 gallons and they're all cycled (which is why i stopped using the 1.5 gallon tanks). I hope you're able to keep your buddy. He's a beauty.
