That's what I was thinking at first, but it's reusable. To recharge it, you have to freeze it below 0 deg F. Then, a chemical reaction is primed that allows it to absorb heat.

They are supposed to be reusable for ~5 years, so $20 / 5 = $4 / year for one bag. Not too bad, especially for certain scenarios.
