Different travel bottle warmers use different heating technology. As such, the bottle warmers differ in how long it takes to heat the bottle and how long the bottle stays warm. Most portable bottle warmers take somewhere from 15 to 30 minutes to heat a bottle. With some of the bottle warmers using chemical reactions to create heat, you may be wary of harmful substances being used to create the phenomenon. Ensure that the bottle warmer is free of BPA (Bisphenol A) and phthalate, an acid used most commonly in plastics.
In order for a baby bottle warmer to fit into your diaper bag, it needs to be portable and intended for use without electricity. The majority of travel bottle warmers are compact and use various technologies to heat up the bottle, including sleeves, gel packs and bottle inserts, and you even plug some of them into your car. Most of the bottle warmers are either small enough to be kept in a pocket of your diaper bag or come with a carry case.
While portable bottle warmers are intended for use on the go, many of the products are not allowed by the Transportation Security Administration. If you plan to use one on an airplane, make sure you choose a portable bottle warmer that will not be confiscated by airport security.
Most travel bottle warmers are reusable. Thus, they require time to either sterilize or prepare the heating element. While you can use them anywhere, if you need to prepare the heating element, you need access to electricity or hot water. Bottle warmers that are insulated or come with an insulated case keep the bottle warm, or cold, for a longer period of time.
Ease of Use
Many bottle warmers require prior planning. Some require boiling water to reactivate the heating element or a car adapter to work. Several rely on a one-time-use heat source to warm the bottle and eliminate preparation time altogether; however, you will need to spend more money to replace the heat source. Ones that require minimal planning, are reusable and can be used with ease when you are trying to calm a hungry baby are the best bottle warmers.
