ST-ON / portable heater

ST-ON
ST-ON

Have you ever heard about Korean culture in which you can warm a stone in a brazier?
In the past, Koreans kept them from the cold by stone in their body when they went out on a winter.
ST-ON is for mountain-climbers after getting inspired from this.
It is equipped at a mountain cabin, climbers keep warm stone-shaped units for climbing.
Put the unit on the module, and it is charged. After it's completely charged, its color become orange.
When you take the unit off of a module, it starts working, and it stays warm until you go down a mountain.
You're not alone from the coldness & loneliness.
ST-ON would be a great friend to you.
