Are any of y’all using their titanium heaters? What’s your opinion of them?

I have 2 of them. Works just like any other but they don't have a controller built in. I like the titanium heaters because the glass ones make me nervous.

I TRY to replace heaters every year to 1.5 years but I keep the old ones for emergencies if they are still working. All my titanium heaters from brs and fennic are still going.

Yeah I currently have dual finnex 500w on my main system but smaller, glass ones on my secondary system. My secondary system is entirely in the fish room so it’s cut off from help with temps from inside my house. I’m thinking I will revamp my heater situation for my secondary system. The ones it has aren’t properly sized and are struggling to keep up. Luckily, I had an extra 500w finnex sitting around that I put on that system. Luckily, the secondary only has about 75 gallons so the heater has taken control of the temp in a good way.

I have two 500w finnex in my big tank. I have them controlled with a Ranco which then is controlled by my apex.
My favorite one and down heater is Cobalt titanium heaters. I have the 200 and 300w. They maintain preset 77-78 deg temp in ANY water volume. I’ve used them in 10gal qt tank- 60gal dt and temp has always remained at 77-78 deg. I feel so confident in them that I don’t feel the need to put a ranco on them.

They don't have controller meaning they would not stop heating after reaching desired temp? I am also looking for a reliable heater, had to resort to boiling water this week since my heaters turned out inadequate

Yes, the two BRS heaters that I have are dumb heaters...plug them in and they just heat. You MUST have a controller with them. I have the BRS controller and the apex as a backup so dont need a heater with a controller built in.
