Hands-On Review of Zippo Hand Warmer

So, what exactly is a Zippo Hand Warmer? It is a device made to withstand the outdoor elements while keeping you more comfortable! It is a sleek, compact container meant to be held to keep you warm. The container is re-usable and holds Zippo lighter fluid.Lighter fluid?! I was concerned but it is odorless and safe when used properly. This small device can burn for 12 hours and is reusable, so very environmentally friendly.  It is a great product to have with you when you are at your kids outdoor sporting events this winter, as well as for skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, ice fishing, and anything else you plan to do outside this winter!

This is what the Zippo Hand Warmer looks like below.

When you use the product, you’ll have it in this nice black cloth case. Do not use the hand warmer without the case as it gets very hot!

So, how do you fill the Zippo Hand Warmer with lighter fluid? I was nervous at first, so I had my husband do it. :) It was really simple to do and I have no problem doing it now. Simply remove the hand warmer lid, remove catalytic burner unit from base, pour zippo lighter fluid using provided funnel into filling unit. You can adjust the level of fluid to the length of time you plan to use the product for not waste. From filling unit, pour into catalystic burner opening. Wipe any excess from surface. Replace catalytic burner unit. To ignite, with the lid off, hold base unit and apply falme to catalytic burner. Replace hand warmer lid. Place in bag. After it is ignited, the heat is provided by a catalytic process, WITHOUT flame.

    I learned that Zippo makes more than lighters! My husband’s grandfather always used a Zippo lighter. I would like to win this for my husband, he is unemployed and last winter he used our snowblower to help our neighbors keep their driveways open. He already told me he is planning to do that again this winter.

    I visited the Zippo website and learned , the Hand Warmer generates warmth only when an external source of flame is applied to the burner to begin the catalytic process
