Look for Easy Heat HB series, if it is still sold. No plug, no thermostat. Here is a link:

There is also self-regulating cable, like this:

Hard to find the good old non-thermostat cables. And the way they mold-in the thermostats on the thermostat-controlled models makes it really tough to cut out the thermostat, though I have done it.

Anything sold in a store will be overpriced and will have a thermostat. For example, I used to be able to go to hardware stores in Big Bear and find Wrap-On heat cable with no t-stat for a relatively good price. No more, all t-stat controlled now and pricey.

Regarding Flexwatt, Reptile Basics sells the new THG heat tape. It has a more appropriate watts/ft rating and is thicker, meaning it lays flat and will not get super hot. Nice stuff.
