It is spposed to stay on for 2 hours at the lower setting, but only lasts about 1. Havn't tried it with the higher setting.
I like to adjustable belt and it is comfortable, but the lack of duration is a major negative.
I did a lot of research for heating pads because they are not cheap. I chose this one because of the features. It is long, soft, has a long cord, and offered several heat settings. The highest setting did not even get warm! It blinks, and blinks, and blinks. I ended up trying three different heating pads, and found one with comparable features that I was seeking, and it gets hot! Not warm! Hot!! It is a Sunbeam Ultraheat, and that is what it is! I have pain from my lover back to my calf so this covers a lot of the area, and it offers moist heat as well. This Softheat brand is exactly that. Soft heat as in no heat. I hope this review helps other consumers, and saves you time from having to return it. Good luck!
Very disappointed with this product, the pad was a great size, but it had the automatic turnoff that turned off after 15 minutes instead of 1 hour, then when it came on again, even low was too hot at first. I wish they gave you the option to override the automatic turnoff. Target was great about accepting the return though, and I'm very pleased with their customer service.
