warmer packets - how do they work?
« on: January 31, 2012, 05:36:25 AM »
I was looking at rain covers for cameras on the B&H website -

and they mention that they need warmer packs to work properly - anyone knows how this works? do you have any experience with them?

Some hand warmers contain cellulose, iron, water, activated carbon (to speed up reaction), vermiculite (water reservoir) and salt (catalyst) and produce heat from the exothermic oxidation of iron when exposed to air. This type of heatpads normally lasts from 1 to 10 hours.

I have only used them to keep my hands warm. Works great.
