Heat Pad?

I saw up at Petsmart that zoo-med (reptile pet supplier) makes a tiny heat pad for a bowl.... i have a couple large pads from my reptile days with thermostats... would they be suitable, assuming i can control the temperature enough?

Pads are not the best option as they never turn off and might end up overheating your water.
My very first heater was a pad and the water went up to 92degrees so I ended up returning it and getting one that shuts off.

I have a thermostat controller designed for heat pads... Was testing it before I left the house. It was holding water at 75 on it's lowest setting for at least an hour, will have to see if it's still holding when I go home.
