Got someone in your life who gets cold quickly and easily? Someone who busts out the scarf when the temps drop below 70 degrees? Know someone who is always trying to convince you of the necessity of the Snuggie/Slanket? Oh yeah, that would be my girlfriend! I may have to get her one of these rechargeable hand warmers as a Christmas stocking stuffer gift.
Actually, the concept may be a good one for not only temperature sensitive significant others, but also for the elderly, since heat helps in circulation, and I know my own mother may appreciate something like this more than I can fathom as the temps dip further. The hand held warmers heat up to 102° F on low and 115° F on high, operable between 1-3 hours after charging for 4 or so hours.
The two styles both use 2 AA eneloop removable rechargeable batteries, which maintain 70% charge after 2 years of non-use; rechargeable 1,000 times at a cost of less than 2 cents per recharge. Nab one for $35 or $45 from the Sanyo Store for that walking ice cube in your life.
