Extending a long day in the mountains isn't always easy. Even the most weathered riders reach a point where a moment of warmth and a recharge—both literal and metaphorical—are a necessity. Thankfully, however, lengthening your time on hill just got much easier.

Say hello to the next generation of hand warmers. The HeatBank 3 Rechargeable Hand Warmer from Zippo revolutionizes the outdoor experience by providing a reliable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly alternative to traditional single-use hand warmers. What's more—it does so with the added convenience of doubling as a portable charger, so now you really can comfortably extend your adventure into the mountains with ease.

By utilizing a 2,600 MAH Lithium Polymer battery, the HeatBank 3 can store up to 3 hours of continuous heat for finger-thawing power that will reach up to 113°F/45°C. Users can check the battery power of their HeatBank 3 by briefly pressing the power button–when all three lights activate, you know you're fully charged, when only one light turns on it's time to plug in. Holding the power button for five seconds will turn the HeatBank 3 on, and pressing the power button once started cycles through heat levels—a fast blink means high heat, while a slow blink means low.

In addition to using the HeatBank 3 as a rechargeable hand warmer, it now doubles as a power bank, so you can venture outside without fear of your phone or other devices losing the necessary juice. Simply plug your device's USB charger in, and the HeatBank 3's automatic charging function will kick in. If you’re looking for some extra power, Zippo has also created a six-hour version of the HeatBank for even more warmth and charging capability.

All said, the HeatBank 3 will provide you with the extended warmth and charge that's necessary for a long day in the mountains, without the continued cost or environmental impact of the single-use variety.
