The previous heater would do 22C to 110C in around 12 minutes, usually, but sometimes had trouble maintaining that temperature. Didn't need it often but Polycarbonate liked the heat. But even lower temperatures still took a long time.

Now with the new heater

22C to 100C: 125 seconds

22C to 150C: 211 seconds

So, needless to say, it's way faster now.
