Freeze-no-mORe

The heating pads are composed of FabRoc mounted on 3 mm Neoprene. This is then covered in nylon.  Insert or remove a heating pad into or from a mesh pocket by folding or rolling the heating pad and passing it through the side openings in the pockets. Start with the heating pad with the connector attached.  Place this into the middle pocket and pass it through the side opening in this pocket and then through the side opening in the adjacent pocket containing a smaller opening for the cable on its other side. Do the same with the third heating pad. The nylon covered aperture side, or just the plain nylon covered side of the heating pads should lie right behind and up against the mesh of the pockets. The set of three heating pads is then plugged into our 11.1V, 5200 mAh Li-ion battery using our P25S25 adapter, which is then attached to our P25S13 Long adapter, and this connects to the right-angled plug connected to the heating pads.  The battery can easily be placed into your scrub warm-up jacket pocket or the pocket of any coat, jacket or camo. If switching to Transformer Power is desired, our S25S13 adapter connects to the cable and right-angled plug coming off the heating pads. This then will connect with the 4-Level Controller which connects to the 12V, 7.5 Amp Transformer.

If the power source is to be the Transformer only, the S25 Socket end of the heating pad set will connect to the 4-Level Controller and this then connects to the 12V, 7.5 Amp Transformer. Plug the transformer into a wall outlet. Control the output from the Transformer by pressing the button on the Controller. Red will be 100% output, yellow 75% output, green 50% output, and flashing green or blue 25% output. Press again to turn the unit off. Some 4 level controllers start with 25% output and then progress to 100% output. While the unit is on, it is acceptable to unplug the connector between the controller and heating pads to move about and then re-plug it in upon returning. The setting will be the same as when it was unplugged.

The same holds true for connecting the Freeze-no-mORe product to the battery of a motorcycle or snowmobile using our 4-Level Controller and various adapters, depending upon your bike or snowmobile.

Temperatures and Durations for the Freeze-no-mORe Battery Powered Product

These represent the available capacity level of the battery with 9 being full capacity.

Temperatures and Durations with the 11.1V 5200 mAh Li-ion Battery

Setting 3: in the 160s degrees F for 5 hours
Setting 2: in the 140s degrees F for 7 hours
Setting 1: from 100 degrees F for 13 hours

Temperatures with the 12V Transformer and 4 Level Controller

100% output: in the 170s – 160s degrees F
75% output: in the 150s – 140s degrees F
50% output: in the 130s – 120s degrees F

Recharging the Battery

Plug the charger into any standard electrical outlet, unplug the battery from the heating pads and connect to the wall charger. Charging is complete when the LED on the charger is green and the digital display indicates the capacity is reading 9. We recommend that the battery be charged for 24 hours prior to first use. The 11.1 V Li-ion batteries will last a full 500 charge and discharge cycles before degradation is realized.

Wearing the Freeze-no-More

For use in the OR, It should be worn over a scrub top and under a scrub warm-up jacket or surgical gown or any garment used to keep heat in.

Place the Freeze-no-mORe around your torso so that the pockets face away from your body and the openings of the pockets face up. It should be worn up higher on your body, between your breast bone and belly button.

Fasten the Freeze-no-mORe snugly but comfortably, using the straps with Velcro ends.

The Freeze-no-mORe width can be adjusted, Simple loosen to straps and roll the upper edge or bottom edge or both to go from a width of 8” to 7” to 6”.

If using the battery for a power source, the battery can be placed into a scrub warm-up jacket pocket or the pocket of any coat or jacket or camo you are wearing outdoors.

Laundering the Freeze-no-mORe 

Remove heating pads and insulating pads. Cold water wash, gentle cycle, hang dry. After dry, replace insulating pads and heating pads

Battery Storage 

Store the battery and controller and transformer in a cool, dry area. Re-charge after long periods of not being in use. Store with some charge on board.

The Hot Liner

To activate the warmers, simply open the plastic bag and expose to air. Do not open, puncture, or tear the warmer. Please note that there is a pattern on one side of the warmers that looks like a tire tread. This seems to be the side of the air-activated warmers that throws off the most heat. Place the warmers into the mesh pockets of the Hot Liner with the pattern side right behind and up against the mesh of the pockets. It should take approximately 10 minutes to warm. If the temperature decreases, try gently shaking the warmer with keeping the contents of the warmer evenly distributed. After use, dispose the warmers in the garbage after they have cooled. The ingredients will not harm the environment. If you wish to stop the reaction, simply place the warmer into a small zip-lock bag.

Each warmer provides temperatures in the 150s to the 120s deg. F for up to 12 hours.

Laundering the Hot Liner

Launder separately. Cold water, Gentle Cycle, Hand Dry. Be sure to remove any used warmers from the pockets prior to laundering. Minimal laundering is required as this garment does not absorb sweat.

The Hot Liner Powered by a Single Battery Powered Heating Pad:

Place the Heating Pad into the smaller pocket of the double pocket with the smooth nylon covered side up against the mesh of the pocket. Place the 11.1V, 2600 mAh 3-Level Remote Controlled Li-ion Battery into the larger pocket of the double pocket.

CoolHeating

  1. Position the garment around your torso by adjusting the suspenders for vertical and tie the ties for securing it around your torso. This disposable product should be worn around your torso, between your xiphoid and umbilicus. The openings in the pockets should face outward.
  2. If upon tying the ties, the garment sits too low, adjust the suspenders and re-tie.
  3. Have an assistant place the warming or cooling pack into the back pocket, or all the pockets if needed. They should be placed up against the round openings.
  4. The warming packs are Air-Activated Warmers which are activated by exposure to air. These last up to 12 hours and throw off temperatures from 150 – 120 degrees F. The reaction can be stopped if need be, by placing each warmer into a zip lock bag to be used at a future time. The side of the warmers that appears to have a tire-track pattern (look carefully), is best up against the panel with the circular openings. When finished with the warmers, they can be disposed of in the trash as they are environmentally safe. The Air-Activated Warmers come in a case of 60.
  5. The cooling packs should be placed flat down or stacked in the freezer. Each individual belt comes with 6 cooling packs, or simply order a case of 50 belts and a case of 36 cooling packs (the only re-usable component). While using three, the other three are kept in the freezer to be exchanged once the first three melt and no longer provide cooling, (about three hours). The first three are then placed in the freezer and the second set of three are used in the belt.

  1. Place ThermoSafeÒ Utek Phase Change Materials Cooling Packs against the holes facing outward, away from one’s torso.
  2. Place Air-Activated Warmers against the holes facing outward, away from one’s torso.
  3. Adjustable suspenders help position the belt around one’s torso, between the xiphoid and umbilicus.
  4. The fours ties (two on each side) tie securely in front.
