Our Verdict

The Auzkin Space Heater has a few attractive traits, specifically that it consumes a minimal amount of power. We like that it's simple, small, and affordable. However, unless these are the specific traits you are looking for out of a space heater, this model falls far short of most models in nearly every other aspect.

Our Analysis and Test Results

The Auzkin Space Heater is by no means considered a high-performance space heater. It lacks several key features, such as a digital temperature display, a timer, and a remote. This device doesn't do a very good job of heating anything other than a small space such as underneath a desk. However, during our cost of running assessment, we found it to be highly efficient.

To measure the cost of running each space heater, we used a wattmeter to record each model's power consumption on its highest setting over a one-hour period. Then, using the national average price of a kilowatt per hour of power, we calculated the added expense of running each device.


The Auzkin Space Heater did exceptionally well during this experiment. The cost of running this space heater for a day is a mere $2.81, which translates to $500 over six months. This may sound like a high number, but considering that some of the heaters in our review cost upwards of $300 more to run in the same amount of time, we'd say that's quite the difference.

If you like the idea of simplicity, the Auzkin Space Heater may be the model for you. It has a main on/off switch, straightforward buttons, and a handle on the back to aid in moving the unit around as easily as possible. Unlike many small and simple models, the Auzkin also oscillates.

Dislikes


Unfortunately, the Auzkin Space Heater does not hang with the rest of the pack when it comes to overall performance. It can't warm an area much larger than beneath a desk or a tiny room. It also lacks the bells & whistles that us tech nerds have come to enjoy. It does not have a digital temperature readout, there is no timer, and this model lacks a remote.

Value


If all you are looking for out of a space heater is to heat a tiny area while consuming as little power as possible, we think the Auzkin is worth purchasing.

Conclusion


If you need a simple space heater that will barely draw power, the Auzkin is the way to go. If you are looking for a model to crank out some warmth with lots of features and settings, we'd suggest going with a higher-end model.
