13 Best Portable Bathroom Heaters | Reviews + Guide

With winter around the corner, are you looking for a heater that can instantly warm up your space? 

Heaters are indeed an indispensable part of winter- be it the home or the office, we need to keep our spaces warm. While buying one, many factors have to be considered- cost, safety mechanisms, amount of heat dispensed, etc. 

But with so many options out there, it can get difficult to conclude on a suitable product. This is why we have compiled a list of the best portable bathroom heaters you can get in the market so that decision-making gets easier. 

So, without further ado, let’s check them out!

Best Portable Bathroom Heaters 

Man hand set the heating temperature of an electric radiator in room. Individual best portable bathroom heaters 

1. GiveBest

Let’s kick-start this list with the space heater from GiveBest. This 2 in 1 wonder unit measures 7.9 x 6.2 x 10.2 inches, and weighs 2.99 pounds.

Plus, it provides two heat levels (1500W and 750W), as well as one cool air fan. This means that the heater can be used in both winter and summer.

  • Multi protection safety system: These heaters are...

Why Did We Like it?

We really appreciate the inclusion of two heat levels because sometimes, one just needs a little something to warm themselves up and not a full-blown heatwave! 

The inclusion of a thermostat also ensures that people who tend to forget that they left their heater on won’t have to worry. Basically, the thermostat turns the heater off when it reaches a pre-set temperature, and once the unit cools down and its temperature dips again, the thermostat powers it back up. 

Moreover, the heater is made of flame-retardant material, which helps to prevent any potential fire hazards. Another feature that stood out to us was the tip-over protection system, which forces the unit to power down until it is put back upright.

It also makes minimal operating sound so as to not disturb your precious sleep! 

What Could’ve Been Better

We noticed one thing, which is that the heater is, unfortunately, not too stable and tends to stop working abruptly. This is partly due to its tip-off protection, which falsely registers the heater as having fallen down. 

  • Virtually soundless (makes only 45 decibels of sound)
  • In-built mechanism for overheat protection
  • Prevents tip-overs
  • 2-in-1 heating and cooling mechanism
  • Convenient carry handle
  • Tip-over protection system may raise false alarms

2. Ordenado Space Heater

This one is a cute, compact space heater from Ordenado that measures 4.7 x6.7 x7.6 inches, and weighs just 1.71 pounds, making it very light-weight. It sports two heating modes of 500W and 900W, which means that this product isn’t meant to be used if intense heating is required.

  • MINI SPACE HEATER: Dimensions:...

Why Did We Like it?

This petite unit is energy-efficient and takes up minimal space wherever you place it- in an office, in the bedroom or on a desk- it’ll fit like a glove! It is made of ceramic and has a practical extended base, which ensures that the heater doesn’t tip over that easily.

Also, the heater has anti-tip-over protection and shuts off if it manages to fall down, despite its base. You’ll further appreciate the automatic overheat protection system, which completely shuts it down if any part of the heater gets overheated.

Lastly, the operating noise remains under 45 decibels, and this factor, coupled with its heating capacity, will ensure that you have a hard time waking up in the winter! 

What Could’ve Been Better

The product, to our dismay, doesn’t include a thermostat and simply shuts down if it gets overheated. Further, it doesn’t start up again as it has to be started up manually once shut down. The switches are also slightly flimsy and could be improved to make them sturdier.

  • Compact and portable
  • Doesn’t fall over easily
  • Offers protection from safety hazards
  • Quiet and runs in the background
  • No thermostat

3. Dreo

This smart heater from Dreo comes with a thermostat, and four modes, and is available in two colors- black and gray. Slightly pricier than some of the other heaters on this list, it measures 5.51 x 6.69 x 10.31 inches and is also relatively bigger in size.

  • Shield360° Protection: Heat up your day and night...

Why Did We Like it?

This product is- to put it succinctly- quite amazing!

It uses alternating current to generate electricity and has a filter that is easy to clean. Not only this, it has a sensitive tip-over switch that raises an alarm if it falls- alerting people nearby, and thus, preventing any disasters. 

Thanks to the V0 flame-retardant material, you can rest assured of being safe from any fiery mishaps!

The cherry on the cake is how eco-friendly it is because it can adjust its heat output based on the temperature of the space around it. You can even set a timer between 1-12 hours, and the heater will switch off once that period has lapsed.

Finally, the filter is detachable and can be taken out and cleaned easily, so this means that the heater isn’t very high-maintenance, and just needs a little bit of care now and then. 

What Could’ve Been Better

The thermostat tends to glitch a bit and doesn’t turn the unit back on even after the ambient temperature is lower than the set temperature. So, this limits the functionality of the unit a little.

  • Powerful heating
  • Detachable and easy-to-clean filter
  • Extremely quiet and runs in the background
  • Top-notch safety precautions
  • Thermostat may malfunction at times

4. Beyond Breeze

This Ceramic Portable Space Heater is a great bargain and can be used in an office, bedroom- or even your bathroom. It weighs 2.22 pounds and is a great companion for those winter nights when all you want to do is get warm and toasty.

Why Did We Like it?

We love this all-weather gem from Beyond Breeze, which has three different modes to help us create just the right temperature for every situation! The fan-only mode is useful during hot weather or if you just need a little bit of air.

Note that the heat mode is available in two levels- 750W and 1500W, catering to different kinds of needs.

Coming to the build, the unit is made of ceramic, allowing it to heat up instantly to 70°F in just 3 seconds. No more waiting around, shivering, and wishing for the room to hurry up and get warm!

The safety measures taken by the company are also appreciable as the automatic overheat system and tip-over switch make sure that the heater doesn’t explode. 

What Could’ve Been Better

The heater has a tendency to blow breakers and there are frequent short circuits when it is turned on. It’s also a little too loud- despite claiming to make less than 40 decibels of noise.

  • Convenient to carry because of the handle on top
  • Fast-heating
  • Versatile and compact
  • Offers protection from safety hazards
  • Gives rise to frequent short circuits

5. Antarctic Star

This black unit from Antarctic Star is the next feature on our list. It weighs a light 3.33 pounds, and uses advanced heating elements to provide extra warmth. Additionally, it has three different heating modes, ensuring that you will find the ideal temperature for every occasion.

  • Compact and Powerful :Dimensions:9.1" x 7" x 6",...

Why Did We Like it?

This heater from Antarctic Star is powerful yet compact. So, despite its small size and slight frame, it is quick to power up. It can effectively heat an area of 200 square feet, and uses minimal electricity as it does so.

It is made of ceramic, which is more stable than most traditional heating elements, and heats faster as well. The modes on it are easily adjustable, too- just turn the thermostat switch clockwise or counterclockwise.

Also, the heater provides protection against any potential safety disasters. For instance, it has an anti-tilt switch that switches off the unit if it falls over, and a built-in automatic overheat-protection system that helps the unit cool off if overheated.  

What Could’ve Been Better

Though the heater is very handy, its plastic body emanates a strong smell that can get inconvenient and overpowering. This is a disadvantage that can be worked upon to make the product better.

  • Fast-acting and heats up a large area of space
  • Makes very little noise
  • Protection from any potential safety hazards
  • Small and compact
  • Emanates a distinct “plastic” smell

6. R.W. FLAME space heater

Let’s take a glance at this popular heater from R.W. FLAME, which is modestly priced yet functional.

It measures 15 x 10 x 13 inches and is comparatively bigger than some of the other products on the list. Hence, we think it will be a good fit for the bedroom, the living room, or even an office!

  • 【3 Modes for All Year Around】Our electric...

Why Did We Like it?

Similar to some of the other products on the list, this heater also has some essential and robust safety precautions in place.

First, it consists of an automatic cool-down function in case the heater overheats. This ensures that no internal parts of the heater/wiring are damaged.

It also ensures protection by having an in-built tip-over switch, which shuts the unit down if it happens to collapse. This is commendable and necessary, especially in households with children or pets!

Further, the unit features a built-in ergonomic handle that allows it to be transported to any location inside.

We also quite liked how the medium heat mode is intense enough to keep one warm. Hence, it is safe to say that the heating power of this unit is quite impressive. 

What Could’ve Been Better

This heater can get a little too loud- so much so that it can get rather distracting (it’s noisy enough to be heard over your conversations). Once this problem is rectified, we will not be left with any complaints!

  • Fast-heating
  • Perfect for year-round use because of its multiple heat modes
  • Protection against any untoward accidents
  • User-friendly adjustment features
  • Too noisy and distracting

7. BabyExo

How cute! That’s the first thing that comes to mind when we see this dainty heater in white from BabyExo. This rapid-acting heater can heat your space in just 2 seconds, and look super stylish while doing it!

Its three modes make it an all-season companion, so it’s suitable for winter, summer, or anything in between!

Why Did We Like it?

The unit has a matte white finish, which is quite unique since one doesn’t come across this style in heaters all that often.

It also has a very retro feel to it and if you’re stuck in the 80s like us, this heater will be a great fit for you! Also, the four plastic non-slip legs provide excellent stability and make it a perfect buy for families with children or pets.

Apart from this, it has the classic in-built tip-over protection and cool-down functionality in case the unit overheats. This double-pronged protection is also pretty unique, and we really dig it!

Moreover, thanks to the intelligent protection system, the unit auto-switches post six hours so as to prevent any damage to its heating plate. This means that you can fall asleep without any worry in a cozy room with the heater on! 

What Could’ve Been Better

The button at the top of the unit to change the fan speed tends to get stuck sometimes, which can get a little disconcerting. It also heats up faster than some of the other heaters on this list, which is evident in certain burn marks that can be noticed on the grill. 

  • Ultra-stylish design with matte white finish
  • Protection against any potential safety hazards
  • Extra structural stability
  • Auto switch-off function
  • May heat up far too easily

8. Potulas

This suave black unit from Potulas measures 5.1 x 3.6 x 6.9 inches, and can be bought for a pretty reasonable price. It has two different heating modes of 500W and 1000W, which ensure that there’s a temperature that suits everyone- to each their own!

Why Did We Like it?

This heater is energy efficient and will help you stay warm in the winter without having to break the bank. It also features an anti-scalding plastic fence and iron mesh double protection, which effectively protects against burns and short circuits. 

We really liked how the cord of the heater was made of rubber, which makes it easy to store in cold weather. The cord is also sufficiently long (5.3 feet), extremely durable, and has a two-prong connection, which makes it great for office, desk, or even tent use!

The unit also has solid safety precautions in place, such as overheating and tip-over protection, which makes it ideal for indoor use, especially in the bathroom

What Could’ve Been Better

The ceramic heating element used by the unit has a piece of gray rubber between the metal heating fins covering the ceramic pieces, plus a plastic grate that covers the metal grate. The presence of the rubber and the plastic grate makes the heater give off a distinct “plastic” odor. 

  • Energy-efficient
  • Extra-long and durable cord
  • Protection against burning and short-circuiting
  • Small, compact, and easy to carry
  • Emanates a strong “plastic” odor when in use

9. Luwior

This ceramic heater is a great buy for people who want a warm bathroom during those chilly winter months. It has two heat modes (750W and 1500W), and also boasts a fan, for those hot summer days. Additionally, it is a versatile unit that just takes 3 seconds to heat a room.

Why Did We Like it?

This small heater is easy to use and very effective. It has two heat modes, and even the 750W mode does a great job at warming up a medium-sized room.

We also can’t help but marvel at the safety features installed in the unit. The fact that it knows at what temperature to turn itself off, and that it can also sense when it tips over makes it safe for households with children, pets, and pregnant women. 

Further, the portable build of the heater and the complimentary carry bag makes it easy to carry around. It can fit into even a small corner, which is what makes it ideal for bathroom use. 

What Could’ve Been Better

The dials and knobs on the heater are a little low-quality, and thus get worn out easily. We believe that making them with a stronger material would add longevity to the unit, and improve its functionality.

  • Protection against potential fire hazards
  • Small, compact, and portable
  • Two heating modes for easy customization
  • Has a fan for cooling during summer months
  • Cheap
  • Poor quality dials and knobs

10. Sweetfull

Next up, we’ve got the Space Heater by Sweetfull. It is another portable unit that is slightly more expensive than some of the other heaters on this list. However, it’s high-quality build somewhat justifies the higher price. Also,it can fit into any indoor space comfortably, and provides great heating coverage

SWEETFULL Space Heater for Indoor Use, 1500W Portable Electric Heater...

Why Did We Like it?

Right off the bat, we dig the unique look of this electric heater. It is small and portable, and can be used in any indoor area- work desk, bathroom, etc.

One of the things we liked the most about this electric space heater was its copper core wire, which has a cross-sectional area of 2 x 1.3 mm2, and is a lot better than the wires used by other heaters at the same price range.

Another thing that we appreciate is the 7-blade Turbine blade, which keeps the sound made by the heater below 45 decibels. This means that one can switch on the heater, set up the timer, and doze off comfortably. 

Moreover, it has adequate safeguards against any fire hazards (overheat protection and an anti-tip-over switch), and has been certified by the ETL. 

What Could’ve Been Better

We felt that there should have been some sort of mechanism at the base of the heater to prevent it from falling over easily. This is because it tends to get knocked over at the smallest of incidences, which keeps turning it off due to the tip-over protection.

  • Low operating noise
  • Small, compact, and suitable for a variety of indoor areas
  • Unique design
  • Heats up the room within 2 seconds
  • Unsteady base; may fall over easily

11. F.EASY.D Space Heater

This simple and elegant heater is next up on our list of best bathroom heaters, and its fashionable and retro design makes it a hot commodity online! It is compact enough to fit into most spaces, and can jazz up the aesthetic of your bedroom, or your workspace, or even your bathroom.

  • 🔥【Safer to Use】Safety feature is a must...

Why Did We Like it?

To begin with, we found the overall look of this electric fan heater rather cute and petite. It goes well with any kind of decor and looks different from a classic convection heater.

With respect to its functionality, it has many different features, which make it a great fit for any kind of household- even one with toddlers. The four plastic legs at the bottom make the unit sturdy, preventing it from falling over.

Furthermore, the heater protects the house as well as itself from damage caused by overheating. However, when switched on, the PTC ceramic heating element can heat up the space in merely a span of 2 seconds! 

What Could’ve Been Better

We believe that the heater costs a little more than other portable space heaters available online with similar functionality, so it’s not very light on the pocket. A little reduction in the price would make it an even better purchase.

  • Stable and secure
  • Unique and portable design
  • Different heating modes for easy customization
  • Energy-efficient and saves on electricity bills
  • Relatively expensive

12. Lasko

If you dislike stepping out of the shower during the winter mornings and feeling like you’re going to freeze while drying off, then this unit is perfect for you! This space heater by Lasko steams up your bathroom quickly and will give you a sauna-like feel right at home.

  • SMALL & MIGHTY – Powered by an energy efficient...

Why Did We Like it?

One of the things we liked a lot about this heater was that even though it had so many unique features, it was really easy to use.

The High Heat mode makes the heater emanate a consistent amount of heat for an hour; however, a low heat mode is there, too! Notably, it uses PTC ceramic heating elements to warm up your bathroom!

There’s also a useful ALCI safety plug, which shuts off the device in a fraction of a second in case there’s a short circuit. The unit is also ETL listed and comes equipped with protection against overheating and accidental falling of the unit.

We also liked how the product is compact and versatile enough to fit in any corner of the house. 

What Could’ve Been Better

We noticed that the heater tends to vibrate too much, which causes it to move from its place, and this can be dangerous in a bathroom. The addition of some sort of non-skid base would be helpful to solve this issue. 

  • Specially designed for bathroom use
  • Built-in safety features
  • One-hour timer for high heat
  • Small and portable
  • Vibrates excessively, which displaces the unit

13. Yeslike Space Heater

Ending this list with a bang is the space heater from Yeslike, which definitely deserves mention on this list of the best portable bathroom heaters. It measures 11.57 x 6.57 x 6.57 inches and is available in black.

It’s a convection heating device and would be a great gift for family, or friends!

Why Did We Like it?

We really liked the technology behind this heater, which uses advanced PTC ceramic heating elements, and the principle of air-forced convection to produce warmth. Plus, the Advanced Infrared System disinfects the air in addition to heating it, and ensures that the moisture level in the room is maintained.

Apart from these, the 90-degree oscillation guarantees that heat goes in different directions and not just in one way.

Unfortunately, excessive heat exposure can lead to dry skin, irritation, and redness. But this heater takes care of such challenges and still manages to efficiently heat the surroundings.

It also makes sure that there are safeguards against any untoward accidents. Overheat protection technology turns the unit off if it gets too hot internally, and the anti-tip-over switch culls the power if it falls. 

What Could’ve Been Better

We did notice a couple of things that could be better. Namely, the cord connecting the heater to the power socket isn’t long enough, so there are limitations on where it can be kept. The unit also doesn’t have a thermostat, so if the room gets too hot, it has to be manually turned off.

  • Overheat protection and anti-tip over switch for safety
  • Two heat settings for extra customization
  • Multifunctional- heating, disinfecting, humidifying
  • 24-month warranty and 30 days money-back
  • Low operating noise
  • Doesn’t have a thermostat

Portable bathroom heaters buying guide

Portable Bathroom Heaters Buying Guide

Confused about what to buy? We’ll try to alleviate your indecisiveness a bit by laying out a list of the parameters that any potential buyer of a bathroom heater should keep in mind!

1. Heating Modes

Different heaters come with different heating modes- some have only one, whereas others have 2-3. Even the heat dispensed by the heater in a particular mode varies from brand to brand.

However, we recommend a heater with a fan, so it can be used during summer, too. If you’re looking at something with diverse heat settings, we’d recommend the Beyond Breeze.

2. Budget

Short on money this month? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered! If you’re not looking to spend a lot but still want value for what you pay, we’d recommend the Luwior, which provides all the needed functionality at a reasonable cost.

3. Aesthetics

Sometimes, we need a heater to blend in with the décor and not stand out, looking out of place. So, if you want to buy something unique, yet effective, we’d recommend the BabyExo. Its matte white finish is a treat to the eyes!

Best portable bathroom heater


Now that the list has ended, we must say we’re spoilt for choice! There are a lot of products on offer, and a lot of them have similar functionality. 

However, from a buyer’s perspective, value for money is the best thing a product can offer. Paying a lot only to have the product turn out sub-par is disappointing, so in order to save you that experience, we’re going to recommend one for you! 

Our pick would be the Givebest since it has everything you need in a space heater- overheat protection, multiple heating modes, as well as low sound levels! What sets it apart from the rest is how well-received it is and the affordable price tag. 

We hope that you found this article helpful! Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and we hope to be back soon with more information for you.
