You know, I was just thinking to myself today, what happens if the electricity goes on my poor corn? In Ireland it can sometimes go for 2 days. What should one do? I have 2 heat packs but they only last an hour each. Fill a hot water bottle? What if you only have a electric cooker? Arghhh! :?

My advice to you would be to buy a petrol generator.

they sell small petrol generators in a superstore near me for £40 + VAT.

That would keep em going until power goes back on. Not sure about the noise at night for the neighbours though!

I dont have those exact ones, but they tend to heat for the same ballpark kind of time. The ones I have, each patch heats for up to 10 hours. I dont know what the exact temp they go up to is, but my theory is that any heat is better than no heat....

I know of many other rep owners using them as a backup too..

Are they reusable fluff?

Sadly not, but then I'm not hoping to have TOO many power-outs! :lol:

You can get funky reusable ones that have a disc in them that you flex, but they dont heat for so long...

You have to put them in boiling water, and then cool them to recharge them.

Will try to find you a link.

I have those, 2, but they only last an hour... Pretty cool flexing that disc though, never ceases to amaze me... I'm easily amused :)
