Personal Rechargeable Heater

Hello,

I'm looking for a rechargeable small personal heater that would only need to be ran for around 10 mins per day and only need to heat a small area 3' x 3'. I would want it to run 5-7 times before needing to recharge. Has anyone ever seen anything like that on the marker? Could it be created with the battery technology we currently have at a reasonable cost?

    I haven't a clue but lots of people here who do.

    But, not until you tell us what that little 3' x 3' room is for. That's the rules.

    Indeed. In fact, we kind of need to know. At least how much heat (either BTUh or Watts) you are looking at.

    I doubt very much that such a critter is commercially available, although battery powered hand and body warmers are quite easily. Could it be created? Not a problem. I'd go with a commercially available heater of whatever size you needed, an inverter of the correct power (keep in mind the surge current which all resistance heaters have on warmup) and enough battery to power it... Cost? Until one know how much energy is needed, no clue.

    Hi, Insulate and air-seal the space and wear a battery powered vest. B)
