Default i'm gonna need a new stat aren't i?

i think i know the answer to this but in the hope of saving myself £30something i'm gonna ask anyway.

can i use a mat stat on a 250w ceramic or does it have to be a pulse stat? only coz i have a mat stat spare so thought i'd ask before i go out & buy a pulse stat.

As far as I know, a mat stat is only built to work with items up to 100W, so having a 250W ceramic won't work even if it was suitable

I have a mat stat that can handle 300w and it only cost me around £20...
Never tried it with a ceramic though...

yeah you can use a mat stat with a ceramic as long as it's not the ministat, which is only rated to 100 watts.
