The construction does not weigh less than 1.1 kg, since in addition to two-part radiator (926 g) it is equipped with fan of 140x140x38 mm size. Linear dimensions of Heligon HE01 are 140 mm in width, 119 mm in length and 160 mm in height. Staples that hold the fan, take a few millimetres of space.

Copper base with nickel cover is protected with a film from scratches.


The manufacturer claims that Heligon HE01 will cope with the withdrawal of 300 watts of heating power.
