Lonnie - unless they are rating the temperature of the air when it leaves the device, being that is it basically coming right off a hot coil, I could see the air easily reaching a temperature of 60-90C. For reference a blow dryer typically reaches up to 140 degrees, and this crappy little device looks to be basically a blow dryer with a less powerful fan.
Despite the listing for that heater from TomTop stating "Adjustable thermostat 60~90C", that range is no doubt in Fahrenheit, as 60-90 Celsius would be 140-194 Fahrenheit.
