I know someone uses one for tegus. Would it be safe to use one for eddie during his night time?

I know quite a few people who use them for outdoor tortoise enclosures, so I don't see why not.

Pig blankets and heating mats are great! As long as its a big enclosure as they can warm up quite a bit. Avoid direct contact with wood and bedding as well.

How much of a difference does it make heat-wise? I have the cycles flipped so I would end up using it during our day.

Depends on the brand but most get up to 115 degrees and then cut off. So that area right around the blanket can be 90 to 120 degrees depending on the cage set-up. Always use a thermostate on them, some have internal ones but I do not trust them (had one go bad on me, luckly it just shut off rather then heat too high.
