UK-Based Rio Heating has announced the launch of their Electric wall heater for North American customers, commencing with sales going live on January 18th, and deliveries beginning in early February. This will be for sales in both the United States, as well as Canada, where they also plan to introduce all four colours that were revealed on their website not too long ago.
As it will be launching in North America, the plug and voltage requirements will be suitable for this region, which brings us to the second piece of news from the company. As it stands, the UK variant, whilst compatible with European power requirements, comes with a UK plug. The company are now introducing a model designed specifically for EU Type C plugs, so no more need for an adaptor. There’s currently no word on pricing at this time, but we’ll update this article once we have that information.
The specification for the US variant is as follows;
- Power: 1500W
- Voltage: 100w
- Dimensions: 760 x 450 x 100mm / 29.9 x 17.7 x 3.9 inches
