Zippo Hand Warmer
If you're familiar with the iconic Zippo Lighter, there's every chance you spend a lot of your time standing in pub doorways in the cold, shivering while you suck up that precious nicotine nectar (the temptation to simply write 'nicotinectar' there was very strong). Well, your friends at Zippo have come up with an ingenious way to keep your hands warm at such times, and any other time you might feel a bit nippy. This Zippo Hand Warmer runs on standard lighter fluid, is triggered by lighting it and will retain warmth for up to 12 hours.
Perfect if you're out in the cold, but just as useful for skiing holidays and any Arctic expeditions you might be planning, it'll give you toasty warm hands (or toasty warm… wherever you decide to put it). Once you've set it going, you can pop it inside the protective bag and feel that cosy warmth radiate throughout your body… mmm. Overall, it's darned useful, a design icon and much healthier than actually taking up smoking. A winter style icon.

It took quite a while to get it started the first time, but that could just be down to technique. It warms up really fast and gets pretty damn hot! It says in the manual that you can't 'turn it off' but from research on the internet, and experience, you can. Just take the burner off it while its still on, using oven gloves or a towel to prevent burning yourself, and save your fluid!
Zippo hand warmer
Very difficult to fill for the first time. You need to fill up with two cups, but they aren't easy either. Keeps spilling all over the place. When it does light, no real way of knowing, it did stay warm for a very long time. If lighting was easier it would be very good, but because it is difficult to know when it is alight, it cannot get top marks
There's many hand warmers available, but they normally only last 30 minutes to 2 hours at best. A round of golf takes 4 hours approximately, so to find this Zippo Hand Warmer was great. I've only tried it once so far, and it lasted 3 and a half hours, but I didn't completely fill it. I expect this to outlast my golf, no problem.
stays warm all day
Already enjoyed the benefits of a peacock hand warmer over the last few years and decided I would treat the other hand to a warmer all of its own. Slightly difficult to get used to the little filler can and had a rather exciting few moments with the first lighting as the recommended double filling on first use created a small conflagration! Once that was sorted out, the warmer worked as it should and was still warm after 24 hours (adjust fuel accordingly). These hand warmers are great. Cannot recommend them enough. Even slim enough to slip inside a mitt if necessary. A very good price.

This Zippo Hand Warmer is a great idea and it stays hot constantly until it runs out of fuel. It's half full over 6 hours and if full over 12 hrs but make sure you have lighter fluid to fill it but not all shops sell it. Well worth it if your an outside person or even for a heat pad on aches. I would recommend this 100%.
Nice and toasty !
The Zippo Hand Warmer is an excellent bit of kit and seems to last forever on a fill. The instructions suggested that I should expect 12 hours use but I get closer to 13. I think I'll just half fill it next time. The only problem I found was getting it to light the first time, I'd guess that that had something to do with the burner being new as it's been fine since. Don't expect to see flames or any visual evidence of it burning as the catalyst, although glowing red is difficult to see in the daylight. Overall, this is a great buy but make sure you know where to get lighter fuel from as most places just sell gas these days.
As someone who spends an awfully large amount of time outdoors I can't recommend this enough, it's great and does exactly what it says on the tin. It gives 12hrs warmth when fully filled and I've never had a handwarmer that can do that. Just be careful not to overfill it though as it may burst into flames when lighting.
I purchased 2 of these as Christmas presents on 23/11/10. I still didn't received the items and then IWOOT cancelled my order without even telling me. They are now refusing to honour my original order, and when I asked them why they pretended that the item was out of stock, but clearly it isn't.
Good But Not At Altitude
I love this product and it is great in the UK and totally safe and flameless and much much warmer than any heat pack or thick gloves. The problem is that it doesn't work at altitude, I took it with me to Africa last year when I climbed Kilimanjaro as it gets very cold at night but above 3500 metres it just doesn't stay lit and goes out. Therefore very strongly recommended unless you are going up a big hill with it ! Go for it...
I bought one of these for my dad as a birthday present, as he works outside alot of the time, and I ended up loving it so much, I decided to buy myself one. The heat out of this little thing is extremly surprising as it heats up so quick after lighting it. If you were worried about any fire hazards with this product, I wouldn't really worry as there is no visible flame. I would reccomend this to anyone who works outside in the cold alot.
I bought one of these the other week to take on my skiing holiday at Christmas, I tested it on a cold day and it was GREAT! :)It is very warm, looks nice, and best of all it's not like other warmers where they're either disposable, or you need to boil them in order to reuse them, all you need is a bit of lighter fluid and your guaranteed warmth :)
