You don't have to be a smoker to know a thing or two about Zippo, one of the world's best-known lighter manufacturers, producer of collector’s items for tens of years and creator of one of the worldwide recognized symbols, whether it was about motorbikes, army equipment or rock'n'roll attitude. Well, apart from setting various things on fire, Zippo is now offering a very useful piece of gadgetry that's sure to make most of you very happy during the cold winter season: the The Zippo Hand Warmer.
If you're thinking about some bulky gadget with an almost dangerous steampunk (though steam is hot and could suit well) gimmick, give up: The Zippo Hand Warmer is one sleek piece of chromed metal that looks absolutely fantastic.
It works with premium lighter fluid and it will generate more than 10 times the amount of heat provided by other traditional warmers. One fill can last up to 24 hours and this means quite a lot of heat for your needs in freezing weather. This warmer comes with a safe architecture, as there is little chance of objects catching fire around it, thanks to its platinum-catalyzed fiberglass burner; yet, this does not mean that you can place a live Zippo Hand Warmer in your pockets.
This energy-gadget comes with a rounded and flat design that's easy to carry with you without any discomfort, while the low-odor operation makes it suitable for fishing and hunting trips as well. Taking into account the minute amount of lighter fluid that's needed for a complete fill (0.4 oz, approx. 11 ml) and the operating time, we could say that we’re dealing with one of the most efficient warmers to date.
Finally, using this gadget is extremely easy: just fill it up, light it, put the lid back on and slip it in the special warming bag, which also regulates the amount of oxygen needed for a perfect catalytic burn. Available in major stores for prices around $21, the Zippo Hand Warmer can be one of the hottest gifts for you or for a friend who likes being outdoors in winter.
