Our electrical heat pack is powered by electricity, so you will need to plug it into a power source, then switching the heat to
Please take note of safety precautions with use.
Once you have plugged it in and set the heat setting of choice, the heating coils inside will immediately start to heat up. If you'd like it to be hotter (please be careful of safety and do not use directly on skin, keep cover and a layer of towel in between), then you can wrap it with a towel to prevent heat loss.
For best electrical heat pack outcomes, switch it on and leave it on for at least 15 minutes before using.
As it's an electrical heat pack, as long as it's plugged into a power source, and the heat is indicated at level 1 or 2, the heat generated will be ongoing.
No, please don't - the electrical heat pack doesn't need to be placed in the microwave to be heated up.
Yes, you are recommended to wash the cover frequently for hygiene purposes. One way to "bypass" this is to wrap your electrical heat pack with a towel first, hence you can then replace the towels instead.
This depends on how the electrical heat pack is cared for and used. During my hand therapy practice, I would use two electrical heat packs at a go (wrapped in towels), for 6-8 hours per day, continuously, 5-6 days a week.
My electrical heat packs would be changed roughly every 9 months to 12 months. Assuming I use:
...that's 1848 hours per electrical heat pack.
Inside is heating coils that are carefully designed with 2 thermostats to ensure that it never overheats and that the heat is consistent. It is safe to use (I've used them for thousands of hand therapy patients/sessions) but please read the safety use precautions.
If the electrical heat pack gets punctured or torn, do not worry nor panic - it is non-toxic. Just get in touch with us at email@example.com and we will replace it for you
