Egloo heats your room for pennies and without electricity


I know it’s summer right now and some locations here in the US are over 100°F in the shade, but it will be winter before we can turn around. Winter brings colder temps and high fuel bills. Instead of using a space heater to combat the chill, you might want to consider an Egloo. Although the name of this product might make you think of an igloo, the Egloo is a small terra cotta dome shaped heater that doesn’t use batteries, power cords, gas or wood to heat. It just uses three small tea light candles that you can purchase by the bag full for very little money. The candles generate heat that is stored in the pottery dome and then radiates outward to increase the temperature of a room by 2-3 degrees for around 5 hours. The Italian designed Egloo is available in a variety of different colors and patterns and is priced from 45 – 90 Euros ($50 – $100). For more info visit

    I’m not a thermodymicist (and didn’t even play one on TV) but this sounds like very unlikely. Stored or not, the thermal output from 3 tea candles will not raise the temperature of a room by 2-3 degrees, and not even the 1-3 degrees their web site claims. And even if they could, there is no need to use an Egloo – just burn the candles.

    In the current vernacular, I call b s.

      Completely agree with you. The BS meter’s needle should be pinned to the right….

    Seems like it would be far more efficient to put the tea lights out on a plate as the egloo would presumable waste some of the tea lights potential energy warming itself up.

    The only way this is going to raise the room’s temperature is if it sets something on fire 🙂

      There’s a metal grate inside and two domes that collect heat. I’ll see if the company can respond with more info.

    It says “upto 20mq” I’m assuming that is Square Meters? ~200sq ft room?

    Or perhaps 20mq is Magic Quills?

    Also after watching the video with the man necking and making his move on the woman, was the heat made by their shenanigans taken into the testing? Was there a Shenanigan free control group?
