Slide this into your pocket and enjoy the outdoors even when it’s cold! Zippo's high polish chrome Hand Warmer has a high-polish finish and thin design that easily fit into pockets. It’s virtually odorless and stays warm for up to 12 hours. The Zippo Hand Warmer is perfect for sporting events, hunting, winter sports, and sleigh rides too! The Zippo Hand Warmer also comes with a filler cup and warming bag, perfect for gift giving. Fill with Zippo Premium Lighter Fluid. Hand Warmer replacement burners sold separately.
HOW TO FILL
1. Remove Hand Warmer lid, then remove the catalytic burner unit from the base unit.
2. Pour Zippo Lighter Fluid into the plastic filling cup. Do not spill.
3. For first time use only add two (2) full cups of Zippo Lighter Fluid. For subsequent uses, see below:
*Fill to lower line for about 6 hours of heat
*Fill to upper line for about 12 hours of heat
*Do not fill beyond the upper line.
4. Then pour contents of filling cup into the opening of the hand warmer base unit. Do not overfill. Overfilling will cause malfunction, risk of injury and fire.
5. Carefully wipe off any excess lighter fluid from the Hand Warmer surfaces and allow excess fuel to evaporate before igniting.
6. Carefully replace the catalytic burner unit.
7. Be sure fuel can is closed and there is no spilled fuel in the vicinity before igniting.
8. Leave the fuel to soak through the wadding for a few minutes prior to heating the Hand warmer.
HOW TO HEAT
THE HAND WARMER SHOULD NEVER PRODUCE A FLAME
A. With the lid off the Hand Warmer, hold the base unit with one hand and apply flame to the catalytic burner unit using the other hand for approx. 20-40 seconds. Flame can come from a Zippo Utility lighter, candle lighter or another lighter. Keep hands and clothing away from any flame.
B. Replace Hand Warmer lid, let the unit heat for 1-2 minutes (NO LONGER) then take care handling the Hand Warmer, carefully place it into the bag provided. The Hand Warmer must always be placed in the bag to prevent over-heating. Your Zippo Hand Warmer will now provide comfortable warmth. After ignition, heat is provided by a catalytic process without flame.
C. Once heated there is no way to stop the action. If necessary, place the Hand Warmer in the fleece bag and place on a fireproof surface until the fuel is exhausted and the Hand Warmer is cool to the touch.
IF YOU SHOULD OVERFILL YOUR HAND WARMER
The burner unit fibre (wadding) should not produce a flame (the Hand warmer should be flameless).
Leave the fuel to dry out (1 day should be ample) and re-fill using the measuring jug provided. Replace burner unit and ignite for 20-30 seconds, replace lid and place in the fleece bag. Wait a few minutes and the hand warmer should produce comfortable warmth for up to 6 hours with ½ cup of fuel and up to 12 hours with a full cup of fuel.

It is a little funny to light sometimes. You need to hold a flame to the catalytic fibers on the reactor unit for long enough that it becomes able to sustain itself. The thing itself works by fumes from the fuel evaporating into the reactor, where they they burn to release heat. There is no flame - the reaction is contained within the catalytic fibers, and so all you will see is a slight orange glow reminiscient of aurora borealis within the fibers. This orange glow is the only way to tell if the thing is sustaining itself or not - aside from the heat, but this takes a few minutes to get to, so the glow is the thing I look for after lighting it. You need to hold the flame to the fibers for around 10 seconds, but given that flames like to point upwards, you need to hold the handwarmer upside down, meaning you'll get some sooty deposits from the lighter all over the hand warmer if you let the flames lick it too much.
Another thing to say is that it guzzles fuel. I've been using this almost every day for around a month, and in that time I've gone through a couple of tins of Zippo lighter fluid, which they (of course) recommend you use. Surprisingly, it also happens to be the best fuel to use - others can be more expensive and harder to get hold of. As long as you have some spare lying around, as I do given I use Zippo lighters too, this really shouldn't be an issue.
Lastly, the handwarmer comes with a little fabric pouch. The metal casing of the handwarmer can get fairly hot to the touch, and the pouch helps protect skin. However, I feel like the pouch somehow restricts the amount of heat given off - it really shouldn't, as the same amount of fuel is being burned - but the handwarmer feels less warm when I use it, so I don't bother and just leave the metal unit in my pocket as-is.
It starts off fairly cool, but after 30 minutes it really gets up to temperature. Keep it inside the cloth bag and the temperature is just right for warming hands.
Main flaw I've found is that the catalytic burner is quite loose, and it can fall off during use. If this happens, the heat stops, and you need to make sure you have a lighter to relight it if out and about. The burner can be made to fit more tightly by pinching in the base of it...
The positive points for this product are it looks nice, lasts a long time and is quite good at what it does.
Negatives would be its not quite hot enough (personal preference maybe?), can be dangerous as it is requires lighter fluid so very flammable and last but not least it might not be all that practical as I read somewhere its meant to be held upright almost all the time.
