When you have a bruise that needs ice, or a sore requiring an heating pad, wouldn’t it be great if you had one gadget that could be either one? This Instant Cold Or Hot Rechargeable Compress is exactly that. With the press of a button the aluminum swiveling head can be heated to 110º F or cooled off to 40º F. That might not be quite as cold as a pack of ice, but it’s supposedly the optimum temperature for use, and it only takes about 45 seconds to reach either extreme.
Unfortunately, as cool as this gadget is, the $130 price is going to be the biggest deterrent. I mean, I can buy a nice heating pad and several ice packs for considerably less. Sure, I’ll be tethered to a cord, and need to switch out ice packs, but I’ll save a lot of money too. I’ll probably save a bundle on not providing the 4x AA batteries it needs to run, as well.
