Chilpad® Review – Comparing the Chili Pad Heating Pad
(and Cooling Pad) to a Standard Heating Pad

Chilipad bed warmer Our Chilipad comparison reviews many of the major features and FAQ's of the Chilipad and compares it to a standard heating pad. All the outstanding features of a Chili Pad are described and compared point for point to a typical heating pad. In the end, we hope you will see just how outstanding and unique this product is.  There is really nothing to compare to its comfort, healthful benefits, usability, safety, easy care and ease of set up. A typical heating pad is rather bland in comparison. And the Chili Pad both heats and cools in 2 zones, so that each partner sleeps in the temperature that best suites their needs.

Chilipad Bed Warmer Heater Pad


Chilipad ®

Standard Heating Pad


Sleep Cool AND Sleep Warm

Heats up to 118 degrees Fahrenheit AND Cools down to 46° F.

Sleep Warm

A standard heating pad typically heats from 110 degrees to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Heats and Cools Entire Sleeping Surface

Typically Heats Only a Small Area of Sleeping Surface

Cushions Sleeping Surface

Chilipad is 1/2 inch thick and acts as a mattress topper to cushion the mattress, so you feel a soft, luxurious cooling or heating relief beneath you. Only cool or warm water flows through the soft, flexible medical grade silicon tubing in the pad. You do not feel the tubing, yet, it can withstand 500+ lbs and will not puncture with normal use.

Our review of the Chili Pad has found that it can be used with any mattress, even a Temper-pedic® or other memory foam mattress; your temperature sensitive mattress will still support  and cushion you, but without the heat build-up often associated with memory foam.

Stiff, Non-flexible Sleeping Surface

Heating pads tend to be stiff and do not move with your body or the mattress. In addition, you often feel the hard, non-flexible wires in the heating pad beneath you.


Sleeping Cool Promotes Deep, Undisturbed Sleep All Night Long

Sleep scientists have found that when your body is at the right temperature (neither too hot nor too cold) you go to sleep easier and sleep undisturbed all night long. A cooler night’s sleep is medically proven to increase the amount of REM sleep during the night.  REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement and is indicative of a critical, restful, rejuvenate stage of sleep. After a night’s sleep with sufficient amount of REM, you wake up refreshed and revitalized. The Chili Pad, will naturally improve your sleep health.

No Cooling Option

You have the option to sleep at your room temperature or to heat your bed up to 160° F. No cooling options for optimal sleep.

Prevents Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Doctors recommend Chili Pad for symptoms of menopause—enjoy a drug-free, undisturbed sleep with relief from night sweats.

No Benefits for Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Relieves Discomfort by Either Heating or Cooling

You can choose heat to soothe pain and injured areas. You can also choose cool for relief from certain kinds of pain that benefit from a cool surface.

Relieves Discomfort by Heating

Heat soothes pain and injured areas, but no option for cooling effect.


Dual Temperature Zone Option

No arguments! Both you and your sleeping partner can choose your ideal temperature. For example, you can choose your ideal cool temperature and sleep cool and your partner can also choose and sleep comfortably warm or cool. Plus, you both have your own remote control.

Only One Temperature Zone

Typical heating pads come with only one temperature zone.

Precise Temperature Control

You can adjust the temperature in one degree increments — from 46° F up to 118° F — giving you the most options to achieve your “perfect” temperature and greatest comfort. Temperature remains consistent all night long.

Only Three Heat Settings

Most heating pads offer you only three temperature settings: high, medium, and low. Some offer you only one setting: either on or off.

Timer—You Set the Shutoff Time

You can set the time you want your Chilipad to turn off during the night or in the morning, and it will turn off automatically at that exact time.

Automatic Shutoff

In our review of many heating pads we have typically found an automatic shut off after a certain amount of time. Typically this is 2 hours. And in addition, you will need to unplug the pad for 30 seconds before you can heat it again.

 In most instances, you cannot choose the time duration the pad will automatically stay on or go off.


No Health-Compromising EMF

The flow of electricity through wires generates a force field around the wires called an electromagnetic field (EMF).  EMF has been shown scientifically to compromise health.

With Chilipad, you have no wires on your sleeping surface, so no EMF. Only pure water silently flows next to your body.

EMF Danger

Wires on the sleeping surface typically create a health-compromising EMF (an electromagnetic field) next to your body.

Health and Safety Certification—ETL listed

ETL is equivalent to UL.

Health and Safety Certification—UL listed

Due to the considerable safety issues involved with a heating pad most are UL listed.


SAVE in Energy Costs All Year Round

You can turn down the AC in summer, save 15% in energy costs, and still sleep cool!  Plus, you can turn down the heat in winter, save more energy costs, and still sleep warm.

Love fresh air when you sleep? Open the window and still sleep warm or cool and your sleeping partner can be comfortable too!

Some Energy Savings in Winter Only

Depending on how long you can comfortably tolerate your heating pad every night, and the heating duration of pad during the night, you can possibly sleep in a cooler room during the winter.


Easy Care; Easy Set-Up

The Chili Pad cover is poly-cotton. It can be removed and machine washed and dried.

Easy Set-Up: Chili Pad requires only 2 litres of water—can use water from your tap or use distilled water if your water has a high mineral content. Control box fits under any standard size bed.
