Chili Pad


Wrote Joyce Wadler in a February 11, 2010 New York Times story, "Todd Youngblood, the founder of Chili Technology, sells a line of bedding pads that can be cooled to 46 degrees or warmed to 118 degrees. A king-size Chili pad is about $700. Mr. Youngblood said it has been a great success with people suffering from temperature fluctuations, including menopausal and pregnant women. When his wife was nine months pregnant, he said, she kept her Chili pad on the coldest setting, but after giving birth, she reset it at about 52 degrees."

"According to Mr. Youngblood, only about 5,000 Chili pads have been sold in the last four years. He believes this is because many American consumers are unaware of the product."

Yo Tod โ€” I'm doing my part.

Looks awesome, I just can't get past the $700 price.

Although the dual-function version is probably just the thing I need, as the wife is always cold and I'm always hot, I guess I'll stick to keeping one leg stuck out from under the covers to regulate my temp.
