Even though some days the sun comes out and the weather seems to calm down, we continue in winter and the cold is present in many places in Spain. One of the consequences of the cold, and that many of us suffer, is the feeling that our hands are numb and it is difficult for us to move them or use them for almost any task. Is there a solution?
Most of us we use morning coffee to warm up, hands included. But it may be that, after a short time, the feeling goes away and, for that, hand warmers are a great option.

Unlike the previous ones, the OCOOPA hand warmer is a rechargeable device through a USB cable. It is a lithium battery that is capable of emitting heat and, in this way, taking the cold out of our hands. In addition, we can charge the mobile with it.
A device very similar to the previous one: the Honyin is a hand warmer with up to 12 hours of use and instant heating. In addition, like the OCOOPA, it allows us to charge our mobile phone if necessary.
Although the two models that we have seen before may be very attractive to us, the reality is that they are just another electrical device. That is, they consume electricity. Although minimal, they have an environmental impact and mean having a device more connected to the electrical network.
Boiling water-based heaters, as well as this com-four model, based on a metal plate and a crystallizing liquid, are a reusable alternative that does not require electricity.
