Inventive outdoor heating brand receives special mention for Flipside Heated Bed Cover
Bainbridge Island, WA – October 25, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Ignik, a leading innovator in outdoor heating products, proudly announces its newest release, Flipside Heated Bed Cover, was selected as a special mention in TIME’s Best Inventions of 2023. Flipside launched this fall and presents an inventive solution to staying warm while sleeping outside in cold weather. Ignik was honored for the highly efficient battery-powered heat product, their latest offering designed to solve problems when it comes to producing sustainable outdoor heat.
TIME’s Best Inventions issue highlights the most impactful new products and ideas that are changing how we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible. For more than two decades, TIME has put out this highly acclaimed annual list of 200 groundbreaking inventions and 50 special mention inventions. Each submission is evaluated by TIME’s editors and certain key factors, including originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact are taken into consideration. Ignik’s Flipside Heated Bed Cover was selected as one of the 50 special mentions.
“We are so proud that Flipside is being recognized as a game-changer in outdoor heating,” says Ignik’s VP of Brand & Product, Peter Pontano. “By adding highly customizable and safe full-body active heating to a camp sleep setup, this product truly reinvents how outdoor people stay warm. If there was any product that lived up to our mission of helping people stay outdoors longer, this is it, all while letting users make the most of the gear they already have, which keeps true to our motto of more heat with less waste.”
The Flipside Heated Bed Cover is a luxurious sleep accessory that works as an additional layer to an outdoor sleep system. Featuring advanced safety features both in the heating elements and controller, it’s equipped with a full body heat element that puts out up to 48W of heat for 10 hours from the bottom up. This creates efficient and safe warmth, keeping users comfortable sleeping in temperatures below zero when combined with insulating gear. Flipside is able to provide this level of warmth by taking advantage of the large capacities and high amperage available from modern 12V portable batteries commonly used among outdoor enthusiasts and car campers.
Ignik was born out of some epic gear failures. Hand warmers that didn’t warm in the Arctic and disposable green propane bottles that are neither disposable nor actually “green.” Ignik, meaning fire or lover of fire, is about solving problems, be it around the campfire or making family comfortable in the cold. By creating environmentally thoughtful outdoor heating products that actually work, Ignik helps more people get outside sooner and stay outside longer. Made by outdoor people for outdoor people, each product we produce is more sustainable than what it replaces. Ignik is a proud member of 1% For The Planet. For more information, visit Ignik.com.
