Great gadget for the price
I gave this to my husband who has chronic cold hands and he loves it. I hope it will last a while. So far so good.
So much better than the chemical products!
I never had trouble with my hands getting cold until last year. This is a very nifty gadget. I use mine in mittens - I don't know how it would fit in gloves. I swap it back and forth between hands - that way you always have one hand available for dexterity Now I am able to stay at the dog park with my pooch for a whole lot longer.
Very warm, but only in one area
Environmentally friendly, this rechargeable hand warmer heats up quickly and is fairly hot on the 1st setting. There are 2 settings for heat, and when it's negative 10 degrees outside, 1 is hot enough for my freezing fingers. My only complaint, which is a big one, is that it's only hot in the center bottom of the device, where the heat originates from. It's a small .25" circle and the heat doesn't spread throughout the device very well. This is probably where it's different than the throw-away hand warmers. I've only had this device for 1 week now, and I use it mainly in the morning, after I scrape the ice off of my car and my hands are freezing. I throw it in my glove and start driving. I have yet to recharge it.
Got this as a Christmas present, and I love it!! Once you do the initial charging which is 4-6 hrs to start, it's good to go. After that doesn't take that long to charge again. It held its heat for a hour. Not a burning heat but a nice warmth.
Loved it so much I bought on as a gift.
