The Perfect Gift is the Gift of WARMTH

With the holidays now in full-swing we’re all looking for that perfect gift. But what makes a gift “perfect?” Well, for starters, it usually has to be something someone will both A.) Want, and B.) Use! This time of year most of us are dealing with colder weather. And one of the most common complaints about the elements is that they keep us from doing what doing what we enjoy — or keep us from being able to enjoy those activities comfortably!

That’s where we’re confident Chaheati can help.

The perfect gift for anyone

Chaheati has been featured in a variety of Holiday Gift Guides this year, and we’re commonly referred to as a “Gift for Anyone.”

The reason is pretty simple: Who wouldn’t want to receive the gift of WARMTH this year? It’s something every person can use, whether it’s the hunter who wants to stay warm in their deer stand, the football fan who wants to enjoy the tailgate, or just about anyone who doesn’t enjoy plopping onto a cold car seat.

Chaheati offers a couple of ways to help. Our All-Season Heated Chair and our Heated Add-on cover all of the bases to keep you comfortable. Our All-Season Heated Chair is portable and ready to go for any outdoor outing, camping or sporting event. And our Heated Add-on turns virtually any seating surface into a warm and comfy one! And since Chaheati is designed with four distinct temperature settings, it’s truly something which can be enjoyed year-round.

Best of all, it is still not too late to give the gift of warmth that only a Chaheati All-Season Heated Chair or Heated Add-on can provide. As long as you order by Noon December 21st (for 2nd Day Air) or December 22nd (Next Day Air), you’ll be covered!

Invention of the Heated Collapsible Chair

Three years ago we went to Armstrong Teasdale to run a patent search on our new product idea, heated collapsible chair/heated camping chair. We were elated to find out that no patents were filed and no publications existed. To the drawing board we went, we were a go! We spent months in R&D. My wonderful, brilliant Husband worked with heating system Engineers across the world. Our heating system is based on a carbon fiber non-wire (coil-free) heating technology powered by a 7.4v rechargeable lithium-ion battery with four temperature settings. We worked with numerous companies before we found the best quality heating solution.

After product concept and design, we knew we needed mentors to help us. Neither one of us had ever done new product development or worked with manufacturers. We reached out to InnovateVMS in St. Louis, MO. They promote entrepreneurship education and leadership through team-based mentoring. They assisted us through the process; along with, Gary Kellmann. I was very fortunate one day. I was doing some R&D and looking for product experts on LinkedIn when I came across Gary. I sent him a message and asked for his advice. He told me to call him. I walked through our product design and business plan with him and he decided to become our Mentor and eventually our Manufacturer. He kept us on our toes and on a deadline. But the main thing is that he never let us give-up or even slack off a little. One piece of advice I have for all Inventors out there is Execute, Execute, Execute!!! Both of our manufacturing companies are in China. Next time in our Chaheati Journey Blog, I will write about our challenges from logistics to communication differences.

Welcome to Chaheati and Our Journey Blog

Three years ago was the start of Kyle and I’s product development journey. It was a chilly November evening, in front of a bonfire, when the idea of a heated collapsible chair/all-season heated chair began. My husband knew I was getting pretty cold and miserable but knew I didn’t want to leave everyone and go in the house or sit in the car by myself. He told me that I needed to get a heated collapsible chair/all-season heated chair and don’t worry what it costs, just buy it. After the weekend, I googled to buy one but found nothing so I gave up looking until a few months later when I was outside cold and miserable again. Kyle and I were going to have fireworks at our wedding so we were invited up to Litchfield in April to watch them be displayed. I needed a heated collapsible chair/all-season heated chair really bad so at that point I was on a mission to find one. I searched again and again but nothing…it did not exist. At that moment, Kyle and I decided that were going to develop the original All-Season Heated Chair. We want people to stay outdoors and do what they love; whether, you are just outside spending time with family and friends like I was or you are cheering your son and/or daughter on at a soccer game.
