Best affordable heater for 10 gallon tank?

Hello, everyone! I just came back from a vacation to a somewhat destroyed aquarium--and one of the things I need to replace is my heater. I have a 10 gallon tank and am looking for an affordable ($20 or less) heater. Any recommendations?

Besides Hydor, reliable, 50W, adjustable heaters are available from Eheim Aqueon, Hagen, Aquatop, ViaAqua...

In fact, the ViaAqua 50W is in sale at Amazon right now for <$11.

I may have to get one for myself for a backup..

Thank you both for your help! :) I just ordered an Aqueon, because I've had one before and it worked well. It ironically had to be thrown out the last time I had someone fishsit for me. My fishsitter was trying to figure out how to turn on the light and plugged in the heater (this was summer so the heater was NEXT TO the tank) and so the heater was on outside the fishtank for about a week. I'm lucky the house didn't burn down!! I didn't want to risk it being broken after that so I threw it out.
