Help needed regarding heat packs for shipping

I am thinking of getting some heat packs for shipping but I have no experience with them. Would 40 hour heatpacks be sufficient for this time of year for priority shipping or would 60 hours be better.

Peace,
Ry

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

Shipping fish? I always use the 60 hour heat packs...if it takes 3 days and the fish/coral/item dies after 40 hours...then it's dead anyways and your attempts were kinda futile.

You can alway add in the costs for the styro + heat pack into the shipping charge.

Are you sending endlers? If so sending priority they should be ok with the 40 hour heat pack unless you think it will take more than 3 days. I have seen endlers sent over seas and it would take 2 weeks and they were ok.
