Please, for all those that have bought the Zippo hand warmers...
on 29 May 2013
As I come from the States, I have been using these hand warmers for years (probably about 40+)and one should never use a Zippo or simular type lighter as the carbon that comes off the fuel will adhere to the catalytic fibers and clog it. Always use a butane/propane type lighter or gas stove (if close to one!). Zippo make a butane lighter with flexable neck, that I use for lighting a fire when camping and this is a worthwhile investment. I have read the reviews and am disapointed that some people do not get on with the hand warmer. The Zippo hand warmers I have are used at least once a month during the cold weather and I have had them for over 3 years and still going strong. Simply by not using a 'petrol' type lighter to light them. Thanks and I hope this helps all with 3 stars and below. YankyBri
