Stay Warm With Ceramics

Stay Warm With Ceramics

The Yutanpo “water bottle” aims to solve many of the issues with emergency heating elements of its kind by utilizing the unique properties of ceramic. The updated design is not only thinner and lighter than metal version, but safer and more comfortable thanks to the material’s low heat conductivity to the user’s skin. Easily stored, heated and reheated, it’s near perfect for keeping warm when the power goes out!

The hooked handle rotates at the base, making it easy to throw a purse, sack, or grocery bag on so you and your goodies stay dry! Genius!
