The good news about this year is that sweater weather is settling again. With cold vibes comes space heaters, and over 5,000 Amazon shoppers have snagged this small heater for office spaces, bedrooms apartments and more.

While I’m a big fan of the chillier weather, I’m always freezing while working from home. Like most people, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on something I don’t really have space for. Enter: AmazonBasics’ Ceramic Personal Mini Heater. It’s also only $22.

Literally small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Mini Heater is a budget-friendly and space-saving fix to a chilly room. It can fit on any desktop and heats up in seconds with the switch of a button. Plus, it also has tip-over protection and will shut off in case it falls.

One customer who left a five-star review said it was “perfect for a little space.”

“I bought this to use under my desk to keep my feet warm,” the shopper wrote. “There’s a safety button on the bottom so the heater stops working when it’s tipped over, picked up or not on a level surface.”

While 72 percent of shoppers gave it five-star reviews, some shoppers shared the caveats. One shopper rated the small space personal heater with three stars, saying it “could be improved.”

“If it lands facing furniture it will be blowing hot air directly onto potentially flammable objects unless/until you notice it got knocked over,” the customer wrote. “I have cats, I don’t always notice right away. Because of this, I do not leave this on at night or when I leave the apartment.”

If you want something with more heat control, other popular alternatives include the energy-efficient Honeywell Surround Fan Forced Heater which retails for $38. Another budget-friendly option though is the Andily Space Heater Electric Heater for $23.99, which offers three different modes and has a thermostat.

Space heater season is here. As a small heater for office spaces or tiny enclosed rooms, this AmazonBasics one is a cost-effective fix when you want to control the heat.
