Hand-Warming Lighters

The Pocket Zippo Hand Warmer Provides Reliable Heat While Camping

— September 26, 2015 — Art & Design
A crucial part to camping is having a heat source to keep you warm during the colder moments or at night, and the Pocket Zippo Hand Warmer is a great reliable source of heat to have when a fire isn't accessible. This great device fits snuggly into your pocket and can provide warmth at any time.

Zippo is a well-known lighter brand so the progression into hand warmers seems like a natural fit. The Pocket Zippo Hand Warmer is designed to look like a lighter but uses a catalytic converter to provide uses with up to six hours of unwavering heat with a design snug enough to fit in any pocket. This is an ideal device to have out in the cold whether you're snowboarding, skiing, hiking or camping and heat sources are hard to come by.
Trend Themes
1. Pocket Hand Warmers - The development of hand warmers that can easily fit into pockets provides a convenient and reliable heat source for outdoor activities.
2. Extended Heat Duration - The Pocket Zippo Hand Warmer's ability to provide up to six hours of continuous heat opens up opportunities for extended outdoor activities in colder climates.
3. Hybrid Design - The combination of a traditional lighter design with a catalytic converter in the Pocket Zippo Hand Warmer showcases the potential for innovative hybrid products.
Industry Implications
1. Camping and Outdoor Gear - The development of pocket hand warmers presents an opportunity for camping and outdoor gear companies to offer enhanced heat solutions to their customers.
2. Winter Sports Equipment - Winter sports equipment manufacturers can explore partnerships with hand warmer brands to provide added value and comfort to their customers.
3. Lighter Manufacturing - The success of Zippo's expansion into hand warmer products demonstrates the potential for lighter manufacturers to diversify their offerings and enter new markets.
