I simply cannot see the point of a low power electric immersion heater. All that would mean is that it would take commensurately longer to achve the same temperature.

The only thing that can affect energy consumption in an electric immersion heater is insulation.

Hi LJ.

Point taken but there is potential, scuse the pun, for using wind power for a low-wattage immersion set-up. This has been discussed on PS and I was speaking to one guy recently who says he's going to try it.

I have moved to this section the thread about low wattage immersion heaters, as suggested. (thanks for the suggestion BTW)
I have locked this thread so as to confine the discussion to one place.
