Betta Stick 7.5 watt heater?

So this was on super sale and I went ahead and got it because it got great reviews on amazon. Has anyone used this? Any thoughts?

Also, if i were to get a tank larger than the 2.5 it is good for could I use two of these to heat a 5 gallon tank or should I just buy a larger heater if that is the way I decide to go?

we've got several of them....for the price they're great, but should only be used for tanks 3 gallons and under. as for doubling up in a 5g, i wouldn't, just because of socket wastage. if you don't mind using two outlets to do what one could, then go for it, but you can buy a stronger heater for just a few dollars more than two bettastiks would cost, so i personally would go that route, and have an extra outlet to use.

by the way, go ahead and buy them from AllPet....they're selling them for half of what amazon's charging.

thanks for the info. I am deciding between a 2 and 3 gallon right now but wasn't sure if this one was strong enough for a 3 gallon.

For a few dollars more, you can get these 25w and 50w adjustable heaters that are pretty small in size - I use them with great success, and for only $11 (+ shipping).
They are one of the top brands of heaters to boot. :)

(The 25w ones are good for the smaller tanks, the 50w are good up to a 10g)

I use the 15 watt version in my 4 gallon bowl & it keeps it at 76-78 in my cold house. If you were going to get a 5 gallon tank I recommend these.
