The Zippo brand is best known for its durable, refillable, liquid fuel metal lighters produced by the Zippo Manufacturing Company of Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA, but brands evolve.
By combining a hand warmer with a power bank, the Zippo Heatbank is a useful dual-purpose device for the outdoors. It provides gentle warmth when temperatures dip and features a USB port to charge up smartphones and tablets.
Offering up to six hours of continuous heat at the push of a button, the portable hand warmer offers five settings from low to high and heats up to 50°C. When the internal power bank is charging a mobile device, the heat functions are disabled to prevent overheating.
It’s made in a curved, slim design that’s comfortable to hold and comes in a choice of silver or green, complete with a 5,200 MaH Lithium-ion battery and a cable for recharging. It retails at £39.95 and is available from WHITBY & CO.
