    Varieties of USB Heated Blankets

    One company that manufactures this gadget is Brando, (Product Code: ULIFE007100). Their product has a lot of great features like the 125 cm cable that comes with it, and the range of colors that it can be bought in. What’s also unique about this product is that it has a button to fasten the blanket if you wear it around your shoulders like a cape. So in many ways you can see why it tops the list of a USB heated blanket review.

    Another manufacturer of USB heated blankets is THANKO (Model no. USB 40). THANKO is a Japanese company that has also ventured into other USB heated products like their much coveted “breast warmer" which may or may not be a sigh of relief to the female population. However, the USB heated blanket that they manufacture has a very slick and modern design and can be wrapped around your arm, neck or waistline, and it is easily connected to the computer via a standard USB port. The Japanese are very good at what they do when it comes to technology so you can be sure that this product is a good buy.
