Frequently Asked Questions

How long do you heat the Microcore® Heating Element in the microwave?

Remember that microwave times can vary, but both PYROFLITE TM products will take approximately from 3 1/2 to 8 minutes depending on your microwave size. Remember, if you do not know the wattage rating of your microwave, you can always heat at short 1-2 minute intervals stopping and checking until the desired temperature is reached. Detailed instructions are included.

How long does the heat last?

Once the Microcore ® heating element has been microwaved it will easily last 4 – 6 hours.

What do I do if I'm on the read away at a tournament?

Remember that there is a microwave in almost every motel you stay at. Conveniance stores along the way and concession stands at the stadiums are great places to re-energize your heating element and won’t mind you doing so.

What is in the Microcore® Heating Element?

The Microcore ® Heating Element’s contents are nontoxic and environmentally friendly. If you were to puncture the Microcore ® Heating Element and get liquid on your skin or clothes it would not be harmful!

What is the life expectancy of the Microcore® Heating Element?

The Microcore ® Heating Element can be used over and over again. I have been using the same Microcore ® Heating Element for over two years. Just keep it away from pets or sharp objects and do not overheat.

Will the Microwavable Bat Warmer work for my wooden bat?

Absolutely! Did you see the world series of 1999 when Derek Jeter was seen more than once heating his bat up in front of a Nipco® heater? He was doing this for a reason, so he wouldn’t crack his bat resulting in a poorly hit ball and a wasted plate performance. The only difference is you have to leave the wooden bat in the Microwaveable Bat Warmer bag for 30 to 40 minutes initially so the bat gets heated through and through, compared to only 10 minutes for an aluminum bat.

What is the Microwaveable Bat Warmer bag made of?

The Microwaveable Bat Warmer bag’s outer and inner shell is made of durable black nylon oxford. It is insulated with thick high density foam. Also attached is a nylon strap carry handle and plastic hook for hanging on a chain link fence between innings.

How big is the Microwaveable Bat Warmer?

The Microwaveable Bat Warmer bag is approximately 24″ long and 8″ wide. Also included is one 11″ by 7″ Microcore® Heating Element with instructions. The Bat Warmer bag can be folded in half for easy storage.
