Full Answer

Battery-operated hand warmers often use rechargeable batteries. Some models have USB ports, which allow charging from a computer or 12-volt power outlet in a vehicle.

Other types of battery-operated heaters, such as defrosters and car heaters, may be plugged into a vehicle's power outlets or a cigarette lighter. These are designed for use when the vehicle is running, so the battery is not drained.
