After that, it just stopped working no matter how I tried it.

I have shared the warmer with others in my work area - they are very impressed with the capibility to heat up and stay warm.
Diane Horschak
Blow out the flame (as easy as blowing out a birthday candle) sop up some fuel, and try again.

On the upside this provides considerable warmth, for a very long period of time. You start it in the morning, and turn it off (remove the catalytic cap for 2 seconds) in the evening. It only has 3 parts - the base, which holds the fuel, the catalytic cap, and the top, which slides onto the base to make a single unit you can put in a pocket.

I wasn't sure if you could actually put it in a pocket, but you sure can. It uses a catalytic reaction, not a flame, so it doesn't get so hot that you have to worry about it. When I need warmth I actually hang mine from a lanyard around my neck with the unit down the front of my shirt.

Fuel is cheap too - just lighter fluid. A 12 Oz bottle runs this thing everyday for over a week!

I also use small, fluid based, warmer for my emergency kit. It's cool, but I'd have to carry over 12 of them to have the same heating available as one of these units.

There is also a smaller version of this Hand Warmer. It's good if you don't need quite as much warmth.

No complaints with this one, and I've used it everyday for over a week.

Oh - it comes with 2 catalytic caps. They don't appear to be consumed at all while making heat - I'm sure they will last for several years of heavy use, but I'm just basing that on the advertising.

Issues - It takes some art to fill these properly. Some similar products come with a measuring cup so it's a no-brainer. With these you just fill them till you can see saturation at the top of the cotton packing in the fuel tank. I have overfilled on occasion and had to use a napkin to sop up the excess fuel. Overfilling results in a small flame in the cap when you are starting it. This is bad.

The heater element is a slightly different design from traditional heaters like this that haven't changed in thirty years. It's flat and lights easier. The burner is a friction fit like all the others and can come loose if you shake the unit hard. You must use care in handling the liquid fuel for these things. This heater is smaller than the big Jon-E and it would make more sense to have one of these in each pocket. One big Jon-E in an inner breast pocket will warm your whole body.

My tip for lighting the heater is to run hot water over the base of the heater to preheat and volatize the fuel. Once running these heaters rely on heat feedback through the case to stay lit.

The temperature of this heater varies from toasty warm to barely lukewarm for no apparent reason relating to fuel level or ambient temperature. The catalytic cap fits so precariously on the body I suspect that variation in heat transfer between the cap and body is the reason. The slightest bump will cause the catalytic cap to pop off, regardless of how hard it has been pressed on. All in all this is not a dependable device.

I bought this hand-warmer to use during the cold Kansas winter when our infantry company was out for weeks at a time training. I found that when it was in a warm setting, indoors for example, it was hot to the touch, however, as soon as it was actually needed, it was useless.

As soon as I got out in the cold, it was barely warmer than just putting my hands in my pockets, and only then, for a brief time. When I actually held it in my hands, it lost all its heat in a matter of seconds.

I used premium fluid and followed the directions to the letter, measuring the fluid carefully. I'm quite sure it is working at its full potential, but it just doesn't get very warm when you need it most. I won't be bringing this out with me in the future. Waste of money.

After reading reviews by folks that appear unhappy with this product I felt I needed to add my $.02 worth. I've used these kind of warmers for over 40 years. They work very well when used properly, but they aren't magic. They combine four elements to generate and maintain enough heat to keep a pocket toasty warm. Fuel and the catalytic cap are two of the obvious elements over which the user has little control. The other two elements are air and heat (yes, it takes heat to make more heat). I have had some containers that the warmer is supposed to go into that cut off too much of the air and can sometimes make they unit go out. I usually just put the unit in a convenient pocket and it maintains a pretty consistent warmth. If placed in a cold environment it may not be able to maintain enough heat to sustain the catalytic reaction. I find it works better to use it to warm the pocket and then warm your hands in the pocket as opposed to pulling out the unit an expecting it to work like an unlimited heater. When used in this way it seems to always generate plenty of warmth for a pocket all day long. I've also had zippo and peacock warmers and would say this is an equivalent item.

The hand warmer was a very poor copy of the 'Peacock hand warmer'. Almost impossible to get it to work properly as the top keeps on pinging off. The catalyst element was in parts when it arrived and needed re-assembling but didn't want to stay in place. Mine has already been consigned to the waste bin. Save your money, if you want one of these buy a Peacock Warmer, it may cost a little more but it is a world apart.
