We expect to have the personal heater in black available by mid December. However, we do have two new colors available, coral orange and grayed jade if you would interested in one of those colors.

VH101 750-Watt Personal Portable Vortex Heater - Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Little Dynamo The personal heater is perfect for an office environment. It is quiet, compact and really puts out the heat. No one knows that it's there - except me. It has made a huge difference in my office which is the "ice-box" in the suite. I highly recommend the personal heater for anyone with a small work space to heat. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as an office or desk fan I love this little beast, I've had it for almost a year and it delivers the perfect wind-speed for any season and the heater works VERY well. My office is in a large warehouse style space with poor temperature control, i.e. hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The VH101 is very compact, bigger than it looks in the pictures on the website but sits quite comfortably on a desk and seems surprisingly smaller than you might think. The VH101 sits right on my desk within easy reach, the rear controls are very easily accessible and once you learn where they are, require no thought to access whatsoever. My VH101 sits about 18-24" from my face and regardless of whether it's hot or cold inside, the VH101 helps me stay comfortable all year long. I've had the VH101 on the floor of my office about 6Ft from me, where it worked well in the winter, but in the summer, I require more direct air-flow, so on my desk it sits. One absolutely fantastic feature of the VH101 is the safety footer on the bottom of the unit. This little foot is a kill-switch which disables the VH101 in the event the bottom of the unit is no longer in contact with a solid surface. For example: closing the door to your office triggers a landslide of paperwork which happens to knock the VH101 off your desk where it swings from its power cord like a pendulum until you come in the next morning. With an ordinary fan or heater this could be a disaster, but the cool-running VH101 simply goes into standby and a little red LED reminds you that it might be time to clear off your desk. Landslide cleared and the VH101 back in its proper place, the kill-switch clicks off instantly and the VH101 resumes its duties. I love this fan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Product Expensive In Price I have gone through two of these heaters. I use it at work every now and again under my desk to keep me warm in my office. The first heater the blades started warping from the heat and one blade fell off. I purchased another heater (thinking the first was a fluke) and the blades are warped again and I can't use it without it making an awful sound. It doesn't even work all of the time either because the blades get caught on the front grate from them being warped. Not a good product. I would never buy another one. It's just junk product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great - fan and heater in one! the heater works very well and runs extremely quiet. I like the fact I can run it as a fan as well as a heater, so I don't have to buy both for my desk at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Personal Space Heater! I bought this heater for myself and two other office mates. We get super cold in our office, but our 4th office mate stays hot, so instead of blasting the room heat, we got these space heaters. It's working out perfectly b/c the heater only heats up the area IMMEDIATELY around it. This is NOT a whole room heater (which is what we were looking for). All three of us can have our heaters on and we're nice and warm while not making our 4th office mate hot. Again, you may want to get a bigger model if you want something to heat more than just you. Great for under the desk for you feet, or on your desk for upper body warmth.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute, but not sturdy I use this specific heater at work. I enjoy the size. Love the new colors. Like the safety feature. However this has been my third heater in the last 3 years because the heather just isn't durable. I don't move it or knock it over. It literally sits under my desk and I turn it off and on. The first two the on/off button stopped working. This one makes a loud noise when turned on and sometimes doesn't stop. The company has great customer service this is why I keep purchasing the heater after it breaks but at this point it's becoming a waste of my money so I will have to venture to a more expensive option or a different brand. It's unfortunate, because I really like the heater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal means Personal This heater is perfect for what I wanted it for. It sits under my desk at work (where the design of the building means my cubicle is Antarctic on a regular basis). I use it to keep my feet and legs (my personal space) warm. It isn't strong enough to heat a whole room or even a whole cubicle. It is cool to the touch even when running on the high heat setting (ie: won't burn me if I bump it) and automatically turns itself off if it gets kicked over. There was a burning rubber smell the first two times I ran it on high, but after I ran it on low a couple times this smell went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Heater I came across this heater at a local retailer, and I specifically wanted a heater that had a fan only function to use during warmer weather. This heater is absolutely quiet, just a barely audible whisper while its running and it has two heat settings, low heat is 350 watts, and high heat is I believe 750 watts. I use this heater is my bedroom which is about 16 by 14 feet, and it has vaulted ceilings. It takes just about five minutes running on high to bring the temp up in my room from 62 degrees to 71 or 72 degrees, then I switch it down to low heat and leave it running while I am sleeping at night. I love how it has the safety shutoff switch if it tips over or falls, and how it looks stylish. The only thing that could make this great heater even better, would be the addition of a thermostat to cycle it on and off as it reached the temp you set it at. I have woke up twice so far and had to turn it off cause my room got really warm! I think it was a great purchase, and I hope that it lasts longer than the warranty period.
