The HotShotz Heat Pack Story.
The HotShotz heat pack is an instant, portable and re-useable heat pack unlike any other heat pack you have ever seen!
With the push of a button the HotShotz heat pack will instantly crystallize and heat up to 130 degrees right before your eyes. It will continue to generate heat anywhere from a half hour to four hours depending on the size of the heat pack and how well you insulate it.
Now you can have instant soothing heat anytime anywhere without the inconvenience of a cord, batteries or microwave. When your HotShotz heat pack is no longer producing heat just place it in a pot of boiling water and it will rejuvenate back to its liquid form. Your HotShotz heat pack is now ready to use again WHENEVER AND WHEREVER YOU WANT!
The general purpose of heat treatment is to encourage muscle relaxation and to help relieve or reduce pain. The HotShotz heat pack helps to relax tight, stiff or sore muscles allowing for free and easy body movements. The heat pack can be used for neck and shoulder pain, back pain, menstrual cramps or any place heat comfort is desired.
By applying therapeutic heat to an area of pain or stiffness an individual will experience increased blood flow through the tissue. This increased blood flow helps to wash away the pain, while delivering oxygen and nutrients to the injured, sore muscle area.
The HotShotz heat pack can also be utilized by outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. They are convenient, portable and available in a variety of sizes to choose from. They are ideal for skiing and snowboarding and can be a life saver camping or hiking. They can also be used by pet lovers as well for arthritic or injured animals providing heat therapy or just to keep your four legged friends warm at night.
The HotShotz heat pack is safe and environmentally friendly. It contains a non-toxic food-grade solution.
HotShotz heat and cold packs are Made in the USA.
How it Works? - It's as simple as 1,2,3!
1) Locate the activator button in your HotShotz heat pack and firmly click and then release with your thumb. Your heatpack will almost instantly crystallize and heat up to 130 degrees (F) right before your eyes.
2) Use your HotShotz heatpack for the duration of its heat for all your therapeutic needs, outdoor activities or just to keep you and your loved ones warm. The heat pack will eventually cool and become solid.
3) To prepare for the next use, boil a pot of water with a cloth at the bottom. Place the used, solid heat pack in the pot of boiling water. Simmer 5 to 20 minutes depending on the size of your heat pack. Once ALL the crystals have melted in the heat pack, allow it to cool to room temperature. Your HotShotz heat pack is now ready to activate all over again - WHENEVER and WHEREVER YOU WANT!

Okay, below info is just technical stuff - for those who need to know.
The process the heat pack goes through is known as an exothermic reaction. The sodium acetate inside the heat pack freezes at 130º Fahrenheit but will stay in a liquid state at room temperature.
This is known as being super-cooled. With a click of the activator button, you cause a few of the molecules to become solid thus triggering a chain reaction. In the process of going from a liquid to a solid, the by-product is heat. These heat packs are fun to watch. Bending the metal disk starts the crystallization process, and you can see the crystallization proceed through the liquid. What is happening here seems like magic, but the process can be understood if you think about water freezing. Water freezes at 32º F (0º C). If you were to stick a thermometer in a cup of water and put the cup in the freezer, you would find that the temperature of the water falls to 32º F and then hangs there until all of the water is completely frozen. Then the temperature of the solid water falls to the temperature of the freezer. What if you could somehow super-cool the water? That is, say that you could get the water’s temperature to 10º below the freezing point without it crystallizing into a solid — you can sometimes do this using a very clean glass and distilled water so there are no points for the water to begin crystallizing. In this condition, if you tap the glass the temperature of the water will jump up to 32º F (0º C), and the water will solidify quickly.
HotShotz Heat Packs contain sodium acetate and water, a safe and environmentally friendly non-toxic food-grade solution. Sodium acetate is very good at super-cooling. It freezes (solidifies) at 130º F (54º C), but will remain as a liquid at a much lower temperature and is very stable. Clicking the disk, however, forces a few molecules to flip to the solid state, and the rest of the liquid then rushes to solidify as well. The temperature of the solidifying liquid jumps up to 130º F during this process. When you boil the solid, you melt it back to the liquid state. You have to completely melt every crystal, by the way, or the liquid will quickly re-solidify. You can repeat this cycle forever, theoretically, just as you can freeze and melt water as many times as you like.
