Electronically operated handwarmers that double up as power banks have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Flip lighter and handwarmer supremo, Zippo, has offered several models during that time with its most recent being the HeatBank 9s rechargeable handwarmer.
This slim, ergonomically shaped unit measures 4.88” x 2.38”, has a depth of 0.95”, and weighs a mere 5.52 oz. It gives dual-sided heat up to a 120°F/50°C operating temperature, with six heat settings for user versatility. The integral rechargeable 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery (included) gives lasting reliable warmth with up to nine hours of run time and takes its charge from a standard USB port. It also has battery status and heat indicator lights on the outer edge.
One side or the other
A USP of this handwarmer is it can be set to warm on just one side or both sides of the unit. Its six settings comprise three that relate to one-sided warmth and three that give all-round heat. Upon switching on the rubberised on/off switch, you immediately go into all-around heat on the lowest setting, indicated by the first LED lighting up in blue. Each consecutive press of the operational switch will increase the heat and is shown by the LEDs lighting up to the third one, which indicates the warmest setting. Press the switch again and it goes into one side only heat mode, indicated by the LEDs lighting up green. Again, you have three heat settings to choose from for the one-sided warmth. This is particularly useful as it allows you to adjust the heat to your environment as well as to help the handwarmer last longer from a single charge.
Obviously, when used in single-side mode, have the warm side against the palm of your hand for optimum usage. Also, the Hi-Viz LEDs quickly show the selected heat setting and battery charge remaining, depending on how they drop in indication status.
One of the major features that will immediately impress users is its ergonomic shape, which makes it very easy and comfortable to hold in either the left or right hand. The contours of the outer edge allow it to naturally nestle comfortably into your hand, plus it has a non-slip matte silver finish.
The Zippo 9s Rechargeable Handwarmer comes with a USB charging lead and a generous hand lanyard. Plus, it’ll keep you warm at home and out and about in the fields and woods. The convenient integral power bank will recharge your USB-compatible devices, such as mobile phones, MP3 players, tablets, and digital cameras, for example, so you can stay connected while enjoying the great outdoors. It’s an absolute gem of an accessory at an unbelievably pocket-friendly price, plus, it’s reusable so is less wasteful than a disposable warmer. Also, to ensure it is fully charged before each use, this handwarmer has a fast recharge time.
