Jon-E hand warmers?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use them before? I just picked mine up and have been "familiarizing" myself with it for most of the morning. Wow, they are WARM! I am concerned with the smell that the fluid leaves on my hands though... Has this been a problem for anyone out there?

I have 2 of them for the wife and I . They don't seem to leave any smell on your hand as long as you are carefull when you will them . They definately get hot. the only problem I have with them is the will go out if you do not leave enough oxygen to get to them . So if you close up the little red bag and put it in your jacket pocket and close that up it will not stay lit long . best to leave the red bag open and leave out of pocket or leave pocket open.

Thanks! I've already found that I can't leave it in the red pouch for too long. I plan to use them inside my hand muff. I thought that I was very careful when I filled it but I guess it's possible that I leaked a bit.... I can't wait to use it this winter, it sure will take the edge off on those windy nights while walleye fishing grin.gifgrin.gif

You never know... So far, all of my walleye fishing has been done at Gardner. I definitely plan on hitting Pocotopaug as well this year

OK... As a new owner of a Jon-E, I have a stupid question...

Does the fluid evaporate quickly when not in use or does it burn off that fast? I wanted to play around with it a bit this morning and it was bone dry. I suspect it's due to evaporation but wanted to hear it from the Pros

What appears to happen is that the fluid does not soak up quickly so it appears to be overfull when it has not soaked up much. What I used to do is to fill it in the evening & just let it set. Next am just top off & shake off the excess. Then light per direction & it usually would put out heat for about 6 hours.

I can't believe I have never heard of one of these things before!! One of the guys in deer camp had one, and you are not kidding me, they get HOT!! If you don't have it in the little bag, you can't touch it! He said it was his dads and was probably 30+ years old!

I don't know if I'll need one ice fishing but I'll definitely be getting one for next hunting season! Once again, fellow FMers have turned me on to a great product. Thanks guys!

I've got one as well and everytime I've put trust in it, the thing goes out.....if you leave it out of the red pouch it comes with- you burn your d$mn hand! How do you keep it working and have it safely tucked in the pouch?

I too have put it in the red bag, pulled the pouch tight- only to have the darn thing go out and not heat?!?!?

What must we be doing wrong?!?!? confused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gif

Mine also will go out if I don't let it "breath". Instead of keeping in the pouch in my pocket, I bought a hand muff and leave it in there...

The air flow is much better and it stays lit without any problems. I have used it several times over the last month while fishing in damp, raw weather and it has made the difference between a good day of fishing and going home early grin.gif

    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
    • To bad your not up here in Minnesota.  There are Ice houses on lots for sale all over this state.  You could stop in with a tape and get the dimensions you need.  
    • My thought was building an axle similar to this.   Then instead of using cranks I was going to use some 5000lb Square Bullydog jacks.   Then making a handle I could put my impact on to lift and lower the Ice House.    With having the camper, I already have the axle, electric brakes and springs.  Its just the matter of welding it up and making it work.  This is an example of the Clipper Ice, which Im trying to duplicate, just trying to find the dimensions.

I assume that they make them bigger... sorry that I don't have an answer for you. What sort of jack system are you putting in... electric or hand winch?
    • Good for you guys!  It's been an uphill battle for us so far!  Hopefully something stumbles into our baits soon.
    • I'm hunting no quota, have 3 for sure different bears maybe 4 on my bait. One is a giant boar. Headed back north tonight, will rebait an and set my stand in the morning. Only took 2 days for them to start hitting, my guess they were already in the area because of the mass quantity of acorns fall by the bait site.
