Dimplex Desk Friend

I have owned many fan heaters over the years. Most have been standard on/off cool/hot switches and nothing really special to look at. I have been sent The Desk Friend from Dimplex to evaluate and this model is stylish, modern and compact. 

Dimplex Desk Friend

Compact and ideal for sitting on office desk

It is ideal to sit on an office or home desk to give instant heat or can also be placed on the floor if required. A new feature that is a great addition is a USB port included on the Desk Friend to enable smartphones or tablets to be charged at the same time as giving out 250w of heat.

Charging Ipad

There is a standby thermostat so you can charge your devices even when heat is not being generated. Do not cover the fan heater whilst it is operating, but if you do accidentally, the Desk Friend will automatically stop working.

A great safety feature!

Dimplex Desk Friend

Warmth ensured and so quiet too!

I am delighted with the Desk Friend and can highly recommend its use in an office, the home or any room which requires instant heat. It now sits on my office desk and I am kept warm and cosy! Measuring Height x 164mm, Width x 120mm and Depth x 122mm, the heat output for such a small product is more than adequate.

Retailing at £25, it can be purchased directly from Dimplex or from a local dealer in your area. More information can be found on the Dimplex website along with special offers and news about other excellent heating products.

The fan heater can also be ordered directly from Amazon, by clicking on above photo.
