Launched in 2012, ThermaCELL Heated Insoles were a new heated footwear product that incorporated wireless thermal technology and state-of-the-art materials. The product line has been extended over the past five years to include insoles with removable/rechargeable lithium ion polymer batteries, extra flexibility, USB charging, water resistance, and Bluetooth capabilities along with rechargeable hand and pocket warmers.
“The addition of the ThermaCELL Heated Products to Heat Factory’s product offerings expands the options available to the consumer for head-to-toe warming solutions," stated William Schawbel, founder and president of Schawbel Technologies. “With the integration of the two lines, we can now offer a price point solution for any budget and need – disposables and rechargeables with controlled heat settings at an economical per-use advantage. Our products have offered consumers a reliable body-heating source and now we can continue that history by being able to make available a broader line of products, and going forward, having Heat Factory bring to market new and innovative products using our patented technology.”
