Recommendations wanted for electric neck & shoulder pad

Does anyone use a heated neck and shoulder pad, preferably electric? I've got a neck injury and also arthritis, and often have a stiff neck and upper back so I'm looking for something that reaches down to about shoulder blade level.

There are so many to choose from and I don't want to make an expensive mistake.

Thanks in advance.

I bought mine from Lidl in the middle and certainly my shoulder has been better since using it. It is an electric fleece shawl thats fits nicely across my shoulders. It has various heat settings and automatically turns off after an hour or so, just in case you fall asleep. Can’t remember how much but guess around £15

I have one, I tried the shoulder/cape type but ended up with one that reaches to my waist as I found it relaxed all of my back, which had a knock on good effect on my neck. It has 6 heat settings. I think mine was around £25 from Amazon. It can also be washed, which is a bonus.
