Cold Hands While Gaming

Cold hands while gaming is an issue faced by every professional and casual gamer. When your hands are cold, your reaction time and dexterity is reduced dramatically.

Full Disclosure: We invented and produce the Heatbuff, which is a product that will help you eliminate cold hands during intensive gaming.

In this article, we attempt to list all of the products we were able to find online that aim to help you eliminate cold hands while gaming.

There are several products and techniques out there that will help keep your hands warm while you game. After we invented and produced the Envavo Heatbuff, a lot of similar products have begun to spring up. Why? Because this is a major issue for many people around the world. So, let’s get to it and list all of the products that we were able to find.

1. Regular Heat Bags and Hand Warmers While Gaming

You often see professional players use these at LAN-events. The reason for this is that there are currently no better quick solutions to eliminating cold hands while gaming. The hand warmers are small and handy, and are a very cheap product that can be used only once. The main issue with this kind of product is that the heat packs do not warm your hands to the core. Once you have removed your hand from the heat packs, your hands will almost instantaneously become cold again. Heat bags generally warm up your epidermis, which is the outermost layer of your skin. Therefore, they do not warm your hands beyond the outer layer of skin.

Another issue that we find with this kind of product is that they keep your hands warm only while they are touching it. Once you remove your hands and actually start playing again your hands will become cold. This means that one can not use heat bags during gaming sessions, since one can only use them while dead in games such as CS:GO, League of Legends and DotA2

2. Electric Hand Warmers

Another product that will prevent cold hands while gaming are electric hand warmers. These are essentially small power banks used to help warm your hands. They use electricity and require charging before usage. The main issue remains that one cannot warm their hands during gameplay, and thus their hands will become cold the minute they remove their hands from the device and start playing.

3. Warm Cup of Coffee

This method is commonly seen in the gaming community. A regular old cup of coffee will keep your hands warm much in the same way that heat packs and electrical hand warmers do, but therefore also have the same issues as these other methods. It will keep your hands warm in the outermost layer of the skin: the epidermis. However, as with the other methods, you can not use it during the game itself, which is when you actually need to have warm hands. It is, however, hard to deny that this is the tastiest hand warming method on this list.

4. Rubbing Hands Together and Stretching

This is also another method used by many people around the world. You can warm your hands by rubbing them together quickly for about 30 seconds. Once you have done that, your hands will remain warm for a longer time than if you had used an electric hand warmer. However, once again, only the outer layer is warmed through this method. When rubbing your hands together, you increase the blood flow through your hands. This is beneficial in keeping your hands warm as well as your keeping your reaction time low. The blood flow is the most essential part of keeping your hands warm, and this is something that electric hand warmers, regular hand warmers or a cup of coffee cannot do in the same way as actually moving your hands. It is not the friction from rubbing your hands together that increases the blood flow, but rather the movement of the hands themselves. This is a good thing, but it’s not perfect or very efficient. In addition, one would have to be pretty talented to be able to play while rubbing their hands together.

Techniques for preventing cold hands while gaming

5. Hands Under Legs

This method is the bridge between the electric hand warmers and rubbing your hands together. One really only needs their already warm legs to keep their hands from being cold. However, as with the other solutions, this is hard to do while in game and therefore not a perfect solution to the issue of cold hands while gaming.

6. The Envavo Heatbuff

This method is the bridge between the electric hand warmers and rubbing your hands together. One really only needs their already warm legs to keep their hands from being cold. However, as with the other solutions, this is hard to do while in game and therefore not a perfect solution to the issue of cold hands while gaming.

6. The Envavo Heatbuff It goes without saying that we have to mention the fact that we have made a product that eliminates cold hands while gaming. We honestly believe that our product is the best on the market. The reason for this is that we take the best of both worlds from electric hand warmers and physically rubbing one’s hands together. This is something that no other product on the market is capable of providing. The Heatbuff takes the comfort from the hand warmers and the increased blood flow from rubbing your hands together, without actually having to move them!

We keep your hands warm with infrared waves that are designed to both promote your already existing blood flow, and keep your hands from being freezing while you game. We increase the blood circulation in your hands, which means that the Heatbuff warms them beyond just the outermost layer of skin and down to the core. All studies have shown reduction in reaction time when gaming with cold hands. By doing this, we keep your hands warm for a longer period of time as well as heating your hands where it actually matters – to the core.

Not only does the Envavo Heatbuff keep your hands warm for longer, in a smarter way and without burning your hands; it is also able to keep them warm when it matters the most – during clutch situations, intensive gameplay and when you’re actually using your hands to play video games. We believe that this is something that makes a difference. After all, what do warm hands matter if they are cold when you actually need them?
