This is my review of the mealspec flameless food heater that was sent to me from survival storehouse so beofre you see the film here are some specs.

  • Activation time from 4 seconds
  • average temp 90'c
  • peak temp 100'c
  • no failure report
  • fold flat
  • only 60g
  • measures 20cmx12cm folded
Cons are
  • single use only
  • cooks for only 12 mins
  • lot of waste after use
so here is the film
enjoy.

I think you need a cat on your lap for the intro! I think these would be good for a backup meal but otherwise quite limited, I imagine if you wanted to use it to boil water it would not be very effective. I think I would be more likely to carry a small trangia burner or something similiar in the case that I cant have a fire.

Good review.

Looks like a handy prop for when grabbing a quick lunch break somewhere you can't have a fire or in bad weather.
Sit down, pour in some water and have a bite to eat 12 mins later.

thanks
Bjorn

You can't really boil water with as you would need to put the water in a freezer bag first as the water that activates the heater is now chemically contaminated. But if you had say a 600ml steel bottle it would fit in and you could heat up enough for a brew.

Yes your are right Swampy. I did mean to say put it in another container but you are still not able to boil water, but as you say if you wanted a hot drink it would be ok.
