Yes, in an emergency you can use these and they will stay at 100° for 3 days. Some heat packs reach over 150° and can be dangerous, we only sell the ones that stay steady at 100°. Be sure your reptiles cannot come in direct contact with the heat packs and there is lots of padding between them.
You can also use water bottles heated and wrapped in towels - make sure they don't leak, and in an absolute emergency put them in your car with the heater running.
Your human body heat also works well if you don't mind snuggling with them.
After a power outage, resume feeding slowly. Wait till your reptile's activity is back to normal (metabolism isn't slowed in case they have entered brumation) and feed small amounts at first.
