Heating Life Jacket
Heating Life Jacket

Although many people had worn life jackets, they still had been frozen to death before rescue workers rushed to the scene because of the too cold seawater.his product mainly utilizes the exothermic reaction between magnesium and water, and people can pull the heating ring when they feel hypothermia, releasing the seawater into the heated liner to maintain the body's temperature with the heat generated by chemical reaction. So it can effectively curb the generation of hypothermia and prolong the survival time in the sea, waiting for rescue, which increases people's survival.
