Bisinir / Immersion Water Heater


A typological reinvention of the classic immersion heater aimed at providing safety and a better user experience by eliminating direct contact of water with electricity.

It consists of two parts, a capsule that heats the water , and a charging unit for the capsule which also acts as a holder.

It utilizes a mineral called zeolite ( stored in the capsule ) to absorb and store the heat in latent form , and releases the heat when it comes in contact with water. So basically acting as a thermal battery.

Hence the water is heated thermo-chemically instead of utilizing direct electricity which poses grave hazards.
