If this winter you find your hands, ass or just about spot on your body cold this winter then just remember that I told you so. Told you what you ask? About Sanyo’s Eneloop Kairo portable hand chargers. That’s right. These nuggets of warmth are heading to the US this winter season and at a temperature of up to 115° F there is no reason an appendage or two shouldn’t be toasty warm while in the middle of your home town’s holiday parade.
If you’re on a budget you can opt for the Single-Sided version (KIR-SE1S), which is available in pink and white, includes a built-in rechargeable battery and has a heating range from 102° F in the low setting to 109° F in the high setting. Battery life is about 3.5 to 4 hours depending on what setting you have it on – or should I say how cold it is. Price: $34.99
The double sided version (KIR-SL2S) is available in pink and silver and includes 2 AA Eneloop batteries. For this and the double sided charging you’ll pay $10 more, but you’ll also score a heat ranging from 102° F in the low setting to 115° F in the high setting, and a set of batteries that are multipurpose; you can stuff them in any product. Price: $44.99
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
