I purchased this set for my wife as she has cold hands when traveling out. She likes the Red circles better as they fit her hands better. The green ones last a bit longer and get warmer but are larger. I will be ordering more of the red ones in the future as we both love them so much. I have been getting about 40min of good heat from them, so having a nice little stock pile is good to have for cold days. At the end of the day, I throw all of them into a pot of boiling water (with a metal strainer to prevent them from touching the bottom--as per instructions) and they are good to go in about 10 min!! The pouches have a very low low odor which is good as my wife does not like things with a plastic smell... This company shipped my order super fast.. 3 days to my door!! The warmers were at my door before Amazon shipped the rest of my order!! Thanks HotSnapZ!!!
Great Product, Perfect. Much better than the electric battery powered gloves I had tried, they did not warm my hands at all. These are great, and I can keep extras in my pocket. Thank You
Also good on a sore back. You don't have to sit on an electric hot pad. You can move around. Easy to reactivate.
I purchased a selection of HotSnapz directly from them at least 4 years ago. Some are small like these and others are quite a bit bigger. We have used them over and over and over without any trouble.
These large ones last for quite awhile (depending on where you put them, in a pocket they will last longer than exposed to the air) 40-50 minutes at least.
They also have small ones that last about 20 minutes or so.
One of the keys to longer lasting warmth is to keep kneading it - first when it is activating and also after it's been in use for a little while.
When you are done using it, it is a solid inside. To reuse it, you need to cook it in boiling water until it is liquid again. Let it cool and when you want to use it again, just click the disk inside and it activates.
I've tried the Little Hotties hand warmers and could never get them to work consistently. I've also tried another brand of reusable warmers like these and they didn't get hot enough.
We've used ours over a hundred times with no issues. The seams have held up, they cook back to liquid and store until you want to use them and have yet to fail us.
We use them at the bottom of a cold bed, for a sore spot that needs heat, for cold hands or feet, or just to warm up the air beneath a blanket on a cold day in the winter. For whatever reason, this little pack of warmth provides a sense of comfort as well, especially to my kids.
I highly recommend this company and their products.
The sizes and shapes of these warmers make them perfect for carrying with me. They are well made; the clear vinyl feels very sturdy, and they are easy to recharge/regenerate, For those concerned with value and conservation, HotSnapz reusable warmers are ultimately less expensive than single use warmers, and won't create excess waste for landfills.
The product works great, is very simple, and is reliable. It is also a great price. I bought them as a science teacher to show students a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate, and to show an exothermic reaction. The plastic coating is of a quality material, the solution inside is the proper concentration, and it is colored which makes it fun. I have already used and recharged them several times in class, and have had more than one student ask me where to get some after the demonstration.
I have used this type of hand warmers in the past, and I loved them. I've been looking for replacements for several years, but they were always too expensive. Finally, I found these at a great price, and bought them, hoping they were not cheaply made knockoffs. I was happy to find that the quality is good, and they work well. I am very happy this this purchase, and would recommend them to anyone who wants a quality hand warmer.
I should mention that due to the nature of these items, they put off quite a bit of heat, but only for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that, they stay slightly warm for about another 30 minutes. If you carry spares, you can just pop another one in your pocket, and stay warm as long as necessary. It was nice that this order is for 8 hand warmers, so it's easy to have spares to last all day.
Great hand warmers, easy to activate and reset. You can reset them in the microwave but I have about 15 of them and just wait until I use the last one and boil them on the stovetop. Great for cold mornings in the car, cold football games in your gloves, or for shoveling snow!
These are very useful for a walk on a cold day, or for snow shoveling. I have a pair of slightly too large mittens, and they do fit inside them, and I can still shovel snow. They are warm instantly on activation, and even on zero degree day, they are toasty for about half an hour and still warm for an hour.
I do wish they were a little smaller, the only reason why I didn't give five stars.
These little things are great for so many uses. I bought eight and then worried I'd bought too many, but I think I'm going to have to buy more. We gave a few to our parents to use for their aches and pains, and then my sister-in-law wanted one or two for her own aches. Now my sister is planning a backpacking trip, and I'm going to have to give her the ones I was saving for my own camping trips.
It's great for hikers, great for people with joint pain, great for so many uses. The order came in only a few days and they really are one of the most useful things I've ever bought.
Hand one to someone and tell them how to trigger it. Watch their expression when it heats up in their hands. Priceless!
Great stocking stuffers, but be sure you don't activate one while putting it in! Just a little melted chocolate and a lesson learned.
Pretty much as advertised. Provide very good heat which stays with you a while. Would be real nice if it stayed hot a little longer but they pretty much do as advertised.
This product is awesome. My daughter wannted this for chritmas and we are very happy with it. The instructions are easy to understand and follow. We are very happy with this product.
I recently purchased several HotSnapZ products because I was looking for an environmentally friendly alternative to disposable hand warmers. These heat up instantly, and maintain their heat for about 30 minutes, then begin to cool. When first activated, the filling is moldable, which allows you to shape it to your body. As the heat is discharged they become more solid, and by the time its cool, its like a little brick. After you recharge them using boiling water, they really do work just as well the second time. The plastic casing is pretty thick, and feels quite durable, but it does have a plasticy odor right out of the packaging. I'm hoping this fades with time, but it's not at all a deal-breaker.
The customer service of the HotSnapZ company is pretty good. I actually purchased mine direct from their website, and used my amazon.com account to pay. This resulted in my order being lost somewhere in translation, but when I brought this to the attention of the company they resolved everything on the spot!
I would completely recommend this product and company to others.
Purchased these warmer to insert into my mittens while working inside a commercial freezer environment. They do work exactly the way they are intended, but not the way I had hoped. As pocket inserts or as hand warmer in chilly conditions, they work great. Sub-zero temperatures drastically reduce the amount of time Hot Snapz retain their heat. Still trying to find a way to utilize this product in the freezer environment. Have lent them to friends to use when their hands are cold with wonderful results. "Recharging" the Hot Snapz is very simple and can be done while doing other kitchen tasks.
I bought one set of these. I was so impressed that a week later I bought another. When I go biking in the cold I put them on my calf and it keeps my toes warm due to the blood passing through my calf to my toes. To make the heat last twice as long, I take the warmers in liquid form and put them in boiling water. Although they are already liquid, they still will absorb heat (conservation of energy). Then I take one edge and place it under cold water to so I can set off the reaction. It will not turn solid instantly since the liquid is still hot, rather it will turn solid as the liquid gradually looses enough heat to turn into the solid phase.
My wife has cold hands. She uses these while walking the dog in the winter. Just boil these for a few minutes, and they are ready for their next use. Get several of them so you don't have to be constantly boiling water. She puts a metal disk between the bottom of the pot and the hand warmers, so they don't feel the high temperature of the burner. That could melt the plastic.
I purchased these as additional items to some I'd bought before. These work as well as the identical ones, purchased earlier. They heat up quickly and maintain the heat for a surprisingly long time.
I then boil the pads and they revert back to a liquid/gel state, ready for re-use. I use these pads in an industrial application. I believe that they would work well
in a healthcare situation.
These work great. Takes a little time to reset them, but they are lots less expensive than disposable, one-use warmers.
I have given these as a gift and everyone loves them I've had them for about a year and they still work as good as when they were new
These are a great product. Got them for my kids to carry when outside for long periods in the winter. I have always had poor circulation in my hands and once they are cold, they tend to stay that way. I just have to pop one of these into each glove and my hand is warm and toasty in seconds. I love that I can recharge them in hot water and use them over and over again. Make sure not to boil them or they will melt. Found that out the hard way.
I bought these as a gift for a friend of mine that hunts. They work great! The company accidentally sent me someone else's order first. They sent the correct order right away and let me keep the wrong one. Now I have some for myself! These are perfect for the cold northeast winter.
Love love love these! I take a couple sets to stick in my pockets when going skiing. I would recommend these to anyone!
I purchased these for my wife who works in a cold environment. She loves them and could no longer live without them. The reliability is good since we have had them for a few months and she uses them at least 4 times a week. Do Not microwave them. It works but they wont last long.
Wonderful! They keep warm for about an hour and that is all I need. Love that I can reuse these over and over again.
These are really good for snow days! They get fairly warm, but not too hot. They definitely won't burn you. The heat lasts for quite a while. Super easy to recharge.
I cycle to work and my feet are always cold. When the temperature is in the mid 30s or lower I strap one to each ankle under socks and legwarmers the theory being, that they will warm the blood flowing to my feet. So far It is the best solution I have come up with and I continue to ride as we move towards December.
I seen theses when i was on christmas break at the mall but they didnt have any singles they were sold out. So I thought i would try and find them on the internet and i found these. they are a little bigger than i thought they would be. But they really work good. Easy to use it is just amazing to me that you can boil them and they go back to there liquid form amazing. A very good idea i might have to get more..
These do what I expected them to do. Can slip them into a slightly bigger pair of mittens or my pockets no problem. Keep a set in the car for when I get done clearing snow off the windshield while I'm waiting for the car to heat up.
so buying these i was skeptical but after receiving them i am happy
4 large reusable heating pads. its just great i love them thanks and they are brand new too not used so i am pleased
I first saw this product at an outdoor winter evening holiday event in Colorado. These warmers made that event much more comfortable! The fact that they are renewable, unlike the charcoal warmers, really appealed to me. I've used them many times and given them as gifts.
I have been using HotSnapz for over 4 years now, and I fully believe that HotSnapz are the best body warmers on the market. I originally bought some in 2008 simply for the novelty of the item. I found them cool and interesting.
The amount of heat they produce is simply astounding. These are nothing like the disposable hand warmers that you can but at most stores. These throw out the heat, and if you keep them in a well insulated pocket or jacket, they will continue to give off warmth for a few hours.
The only issue that I have with them relates to the longevity after about a year or two. I noticed that my older heaters would still have crystals in them even after I would recharge them via the boiling method. No matter how long I boiled them, the crystals won't go away. But this does not appear to affect the heat output of the HotSnapz.
This is a great product.
This item works just as advertized. Great warmth for my injured back. I recommend this item for people who need instant warmth for any part of ur body.
We haven't used these for long, but they work as advertised. It's a plus that there are two of all sizes. We keep one set in the car for travel and the other set at home.
I purchased the HotSnapZ for use camping and more specifically for scuba diving in the North West, where the water averages around 45 degrees F year round. I went diving and placed one of the large heat packs under my wet suit and over my rash guard. The HotSnapZ worked flawlessly and stayed warm for at least 30 minutes underwater, which kept my core warm and kept the dive enjoyable. It's hard to enjoy a dive when you are freezing! I used the second large heat pack afterwards to warm me back up as the outside temp was not much greater than the water. These will be used again and again on all sorts of outdoor adventures. I love the variety pack and it is for a great price.
I've used this type of product for years but the place I was getting them is no longer available, Very glad to have found them at Amazon and look forward to using them.
They work well to keep your hands warm and the large size is good for those times you need to relax after a little to much work. I would recommend them highly
Works great, not only does this heat your back to soothe aching muscles, but when it is swolen from the hardened crytals, the pack provides a support, to cushion the back, like wearing a pillow on your back. Excellent product. It fixed my back! Punch the middle of the silver coin in the pack, and then pop it back out a few times, to get the crytals started, sort of like punching the lid on the top of a jar to relieve some presure so that you can open it!
Also good on a sore back. You don't have to sit on an electric hot pad. You can move around. Easy to reactivate.
