This is an orange with black accent Heatball heater by Wernard, Australia. This one comes fully working with instructions and no damage and is in the original plastic bag. Impressive “ball” design similar to Weltron radios and speakers and JVC Videosphere televisions.

Usually I can be resourceful and research some extra information about an object. I came up empty on this one, so if you know anything about these space age ball heaters, please post in the comments below.
