    Default Hot Cans

    thats right they have now invented an instant heating can of liquid it could prove to be very useful in a cold survival situation and a good moral booster.

    I found these (or something like them) here in the US 4-5 years ago. Was a coffee, cream and sugar. It heated everything up very good, and tasted decent also. At the time, I think I paid something like $2.50. I agree it would be a nice morale lifter if you have the space availble to store it.

    Only found them once, I think I bought 3 of them, have never seen it again.

    the first self heating can was invented in the 1890s.

    they been touted as a recent development many times [ e.g. new york times, 1941], and where used in ww2.

    i believe the reasons they have never found mainstream success is a combination of safety issues and production expense, though with technological progress making just about everything cheaper [read: more willingly wasted, IMO], they will probably take off for good before long.

    There are also food ones, they're quite popular over here with outdoorsy types.
