2. GENIANI – Cheapest Heating Pad for Sore Muscles Pain Relief

3. Blusmart Super Soft – Cheap and Safe Electric Heating Pad for Traveling [ Recommended ]
The previous product on our list had some unique features like its dry and wet usability but we have already mentioned that cheap and uniqueness does not actually go together. That’s why the product had failed to pass some safety tests and we had reports of the pad burning itself with its own heat. This Blusmart heating pad on the other hand has a simple design and the manufacturer has put enough emphasis on the safety of the product. That’s why if you don’t have any necessity of wet heating, we highly recommend you this budget friendly heating pad. This one is also lightweight and comes with a pouch making it an ideal companion for traveling. However, we also recommend you to keep it clean so that you don’t have to wash it as the pad is not the best waterproof one on the market. Also, get it completely dry before heating it up and never use it folded. Other than these it’s an excellent heating pad with a lot of safety features.

- 6 level heat control
- Comes in a beautiful carry pouch
- Too many cautions to follow even after all those safety features

8. Thermophore MaxHEAT Plus by Battle Creek –Top Moist Heating Pad
If you just want a simple heating pad to lie down on and relax then we would highly recommend you this one. There’s not much to talk about it actually. It’s a large pad that can fit nicely on your bed and it should be enough to serve heat to your upper body. However, it comes with a very simple controller that only has two buttons.
One button allows you to turn the heat and off and the other allows you pause the heating that will keep the pad slightly warm so that you can enjoy the comfort of the heat. Also, it takes a bit of moist from the environment and that actually helps to flow the heat better.
Battle Creek should have been a little more careful about designing the controller as it sometimes become difficult to guess in which mode the pad is especially when you are relaxing with your eyes closed.

This one is the better version of our previous product. The controller on this thing is really great as it comes with easy temperature and timer control. However, this one is a large pad or mat to be more specific and it’s not actually focused on working on any specific area. But if you are looking for something will cover a lot of area of your body and would give you enough comfort on a chilly day or night then this is the one that you need for your living or bedroom. This one also draws humid from the environment. This one is filled with coral sand and you might know that sand is both good at heating up and discharging heat. Take note that this one can get really hot. That’s why you should be really careful if you are willing to use it for a long time.
