This review is from: Soehnle Cordless Rechargeable Heat Belt Pad Red (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great idea, and I can't believe that I haven't come across it before.
It's a sad fact that as one gets a bit older, one suffers from various aches and pains. I suffer intermittently from lower back pain, which whilst not too bad, means that every now and then I sit around with various heat pads attached to my back, in quite a bit of pain. The Soehnle heat belt has been brilliant.
The belt goes around you waist (although it will go round shoulders, legs, etc), and basically provides heat from the red section of the belt, as shown in the picture. It sits nicely on one's lower back (although my wife has worn it to the side to help with hip pain), and provides heat at one of four settings.
It's basically like having a big heat pad that stays in place... and works for several hours. The only downside is the recharging. It's worn cordless, so needs to be charged, which takes about four hours. I've used the belt mostly on heat setting two or three (out of four), and it stays warm for about three hours on this heat setting once fully charged. It would be good if it charged quicker, but it does pump out a fair amount of heat (although isn't uncomfortably hot), but three hours of heat at a time should be good for most people.
A definite five-star product - but I've knocked off a star due to the time it takes to charge.
