Next to a couple of Swedish backpackers giving you a spanking, the Chaheati All-Season Heated Camping Chair could be the best thing to warm up your buns on a cold night at the camping ground. Packing a coil-free, soft, flexible heating element powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, the collapsible chair is the perfect way to ensure your backside is as warm as your front when sitting around the campfire.

The chair’s heating element, which will heat up in around 10 to 20 seconds, is positioned to produce therapeutic, even heat across the back, lower back, bottom and back of the thighs after a long day hitting the trails. To withstand the rigors of the outdoors, it is fire and water-resistant and is designed to support anyone up to 280 lbs (127 kg).

The one button control offers a choice of four heat settings – the lowest will produce an average temperature of 98.6-100.4°F (37-38°C) for around six hours, while the max setting will have your buns toasty warm at an average temperature of 141.8-145.4°F (61-63°C) for around 1.8 hours.

The Chaheati All-Season Heated Camping Chair is available in a choice of red/black or camo/black and sells for US$89.99 with battery and charger. A 12V car charger is also available for $15, while replacement batteries are priced at $35.

Great idea will be buying some........

Now, can they put that same technology into a sleeping bag? Perhaps extend the battery life? Provide a thermostat and a solar powered charger? Technology like this may even save your life someday.

It gives new meaning to being \'on the hot seat\'. :) I think cold nights a little more bearable.

I agree with the other post in that it would also be good idea for sleeping bag.


the chair without heater is 5 pounds sterling, add the heater give or take, is 50 pounds all in, Nah thanks I\'ll sit on a blanket.

It\'s a camping chair, what a pointless exercise, just more stupid crap for the sake of marketing more stupid crap, it will just become yet more e-waste in a year or two. Humans get less intelligent by the day, they really do...

Mr T

Very Innovative.

Mr T It's not just about camping. I sit on a freezing cold rugby/baseball feild for 6 months a year being a good parent. This is a fantastic idea! Just sayin ... :)

Good idea for sporting events, or a hunting blind. What does it weigh? and can it be run directly from a car battery, or does it need to be run through a transformer? A 12vt Gel-cell and a blanket would keep you toasty while waiting for the deer on frosty mornings.

I like it.
