About

Toasty Mitts

Toasty Mitts can help people who have trouble keeping their hands warm, to continue healthy cold weather activities by providing temperature regulated warmth for a person’s hands.

Toasty Mitts are the heat source you want because unlike other heated gloves, Toasty Mitts have two built-in temperature sensors to keep the pads just above body temperature.  A built in micro-controller continuously monitors the thermal sensors to make sure the pad's temperature stays locked in.  


Each pair of Toasty Mitts comes with a pair of rechargeable 9 volt batteries.  Additional 9 volt batteries can be purchased on Amazon or from our website.  Batteries can be recharged from a cell phone USB recharger.


Temperature stable heat sources are key for training your hands not to be cold.

Heat sources that are more than 5 degrees above body temperature cause a person’s capillaries to start to constrict, limiting circulation.  Body temperature heat sources are the best for restoring circulation when your hands become too cold.

The orange pad on the Toasty Mitt measures 3.5” x 6” (9x15 cm) and can fit in most ski mittens.  

Toasty Mitts’ control box and battery case have convenient clips for attaching to mitten straps or other clothing.

Toasty Mitts are the best portable, temperature-controlled heating pads that you can find today!

Risks and challenges

The largest risk for the project is in the production is the heating pad itself. It is custom made to match the 9 volt battery. I preordered and received 100 individual heating pads from my preferred vendor. If I sell more than 40 pairs of Toasty Mitts in this round, there may be a month delay to create another run of the orange heating pads. All other glove parts can be sourced from vendors with 1 week ship times.

Reusability and recyclability

Toasty Mitts are beautiful for the environment because of their rechargeable design. One pair of Toasty Mitts, over it's life-cycle, can keep hundreds of single use hot-hands hand warmers out of landfills.
