Before I get started on the discussion of this new model, a word about what's on everyone's minds these days, the spillover event related to the Coronavirus and Covid-19 (COVID-19 is the illness caused by the novel coronavirus). COVID-19 can also live on surfaces up to a few days, so we are going to look at what you can do for handwarmer safety. I know most of you are self isolating, and working from home. (Of course, as a guy with no friends, I'm used to being at home all day talking to my goldfish 'Wheeler', who is a great listener.) You may be concerned about the safety of your handwarmer, and the possibility of it to host shedded viral progeny. We'll first explore the questions around that as they pertain to the various handwarmers, both liquid fuel such as the zippo, and the newer battery operated devices. This will give you some guidelines for keeping yourself, and others, protected as best as possible while you recreate outdoors.
