What does it run on?

How do I light my hand warmer?
The Zippo Hand Warmer generates warmth only when an external source of flame is applied to the burner, such as a pocket lighter, which will begin the catalytic process.
Does the Hand Warmer need oxygen to operate?
Yes. The Hand Warmer requires oxygen for the heating process to occur. The bag regulates the amount of oxygen. Do not use it without the provided bag.
How do I stop my Hand Warmer from heating?
To stop the heating action, carefully pry off the burner element with pliers, a knife or edge of the lid. The burner element will be very hot. Do not touch it to the skin or any flammable surface. The burner and catalytic unit will then extinguish in about 30 seconds. When the burner and catalytic unit have cooled, replace the burner and the lid.
Won't it burn me?
No. The Zippo Handwarmer works without a flame using a technique called catalytic combustion.
Does my Hand Warmer have lighter fluid when I first get it?
No. Hand Warmers are shipped without lighter fluid. Please add lighter fluid before using.
