Are Blow Heaters Uneconomical?

Stephen, a fellow-blogger, has brought my attention to the humble blow-heater and its energy-guzzling prowess.

Several years ago I was shopping in Halford's for some car polish and I noticed a rather substantial stock-pile of boxed blow-heaters near the entrance of the store. They were on offer for a fiver each. I thought of the Dowager and how useful one of these bargains would be; at a fiver there'd not be much to lose, even if it only lasted a year or two. So I made the purchase.

Three or four years later, the trusty blow-heater is still spewing out hot air in the requisite direction. It has three settings and we keep it at the lowest level; are these contraptions heavy on the old electrical juice?
