Nobody likes cold hands, let alone cold feet. ThermaCELL has long tried to keep hunters' digits a little crisper with products like its Heated Insoles, and is submitting a new entry for consideration on your "must have" gear list: rechargeable Heat Packs.
The new Heat Packs—which have been designed by Schawbel Technologies, LLC—are lightweight, rechargeable warmers that feature adjustable temperature settings and are capable of providing hours of comfort. Used properly, they can help maintain body temperature and keep the bitter winter winds from cutting your cold-weather activities short.
“January 2015 marks the introduction of another innovative heating product from Schawbel Technologies,” said founder and CEO, Bill Schawbel. “ThermaCELL Heat Packs can be used in a variety of ways to keep your body warm. They can provide many years of use and be a more consistent and reliable source of heat compared to unpredictable, disposable warmers, and at a cost of only pennies per use.”
Three temperature settings are available with each heat pack, allowing consumers to dial it all the way up to 122°F if required. The thin, lightweight packs can be seated in a glove, pocket, hat or any other piece of gear that could do with a little heat. They're designed to maintain their temperature, too—there's no inconsistency, and no gradual heat fade like you'll sometimes see with air-activated packs.
Two sizes will be available out of the gate: the smaller Hand Warmers, and the larger Pocket Warmers. Either model will last up to 6 hours per charge
Hand Warmers (2-pack) MSRP: $79.99 Size: 2.9” x 1.6” x .45” (each) Battery: 1000 mAh, 3.7V (each)
