when is this stupid thing supposed to kick in? the part I was working on was almost cold before it finally did something - which wasn't much. I thought this was supposed to keep your part warm so you could work it faster.

No, it's supposed to keep it from hitting 0 so you can afk longer. Derp.

If you combine it with Superheat Form and a prayer renewal (to keep prayer up) it keeps your item heated pretty well :P

Technically speaking, using Superheat Form and an autoheater is not much different than no Superheat Form and an autoheater. (1.5 multiplier vs 1.0)

It's something, but.

seems kind of crappy as a Dungeoneering reward now, not nearly as useful as the old coal bag was. Temperature gets down to zero and only heats up to 33% - so still very slow crappy xp. According to the Examine of the device, "Automatically consumes coal from your metal bank to keep you smithing items hot" - does not say just above room temperature.

It's not meant to really help smithing unless you AFK.

I was pretty much ignoring it until I realized I was spending a good chunk of my time away from the game doing forums and wiki stuff, snagged it so if I didn't look back right away, it would reheat at 0.
