I was wondering if anyone has tried re-usable hand warmers. I have found some that require boiling once or twice a day. I have also seen some that are battery operated and re-chargeable. Has anyone tried these? I'm considering it since the disposable ones tend to get expensive.
Thanks for the input!

The best I can say about the chemical ones is that I bought a huge box not too long ago- it didn't seem that expensive in bulk.
Not a real solution for you I know.

Seems like the heat doesn't last as long after they're recharged though. But they still work good when we go places in the truck & my hands get cold, they warm my hands up good. I live in Michigan & it's cold here now!!!

However, the fuel filled ones made by a well known lighter company for hunters etc are unbeatable. They stay warm all day and can be refilled over and over again.
I cannot reccomend them highly enough.

I'm sure those of us in the states could pick those up at store that sell hunting/sporting supplies.
However, I live in the "dark ages" and have never looked into such things for myself, for SOME unknown reason!
I tend to "hibernate" in winter, only going out when I must!
At any rate, your thread was very thought-provoking for me and hopefully others, who may want to purchase hand warmers,

I have hand warmers that you heat in the microwave and they're brilliant. I have tried the ones that you boil but they do not seem to last very long.

I got my fuel filled handwarmers by post through the internet.

I want to be warm, but I don't want to set myself alight.
