I used to buy reusable warmers for the hospital lab. Just put into boiling water to charge, there is a flex disk inside the bag to activate, stayed warm for quite a while. Bought them from Hood Thermopad in BC. There's info on different sized pads on their website. Also great for heating sore joints, backs, etc.

One could just grab something like this from HK too:

Leave it plugged in and you have an alarm and a visual display of the battery status right there in your Tx glove.

Excellent idea!

Thanks... once in awhile I've been known to have those. I still haven't figured out the secret to making the ideas flow more rapidly .
