I think your normal gloves and having cheaper heated grips would be more durable but these would be good for a Pillion pasenger.

£99 on eBay so £25 off

I done a bit of research into gloves as I need dexterity while working.

From what I understand, the battery only heats for 2 hours but dexterity is a big issue. For £75 I don't think it's worth the risk to experiment. Has anyone any experience of the electric glove liners that are available?

I've bought some 3mm diving gloves. These work by actually getting your hands wet, the water forms a thin layer between the glove that insulates your hands. These are great until you take your hands out of the glove then they chill quickly and it takes a long time to heat up in the glove again.

I've bought one of these: lighters.uk.com/zip…BwE

Bang for buck this is the best device I've owned for warming hands.

Following this thread for hopeful feedback and suggestions.

It says/suggests you have to write them up through your jacket - is that the way most people do it? If so it sounds like a lot of palaver to do that every time you get on and off or have I misunderstood?

I think the gloves will have a connector to disconnect them from the motor bike's battery when you get off. The wattage of the gloves isn't stated but because they use the bike's battery, which is continually topped up by the alternator, then there is no reason for have a too low wattage heating element. I have a pair of cycling heated gloves which run off Li-ion batteries zipped into the cuffs. There is a trade off between comfort (there are 3 heating levels) and run time due to the limited battery capacity.

Having played around with cheap heated grips, I personally found they didn’t work too well, hence looking into electric gloves, which should heat the outside of your hand where the heats needed

I suppose it depends on your needs - 2hrs is fine for me as I’m unlikely to ride for more than 2hrs without a stop anyway.
As for dexterity, ive not tried them on so can’t comment.
Previously I’ve tried heated grips and thin seal skin gloves under my main gloves, this is good but doesn’t save me on longer journeys

I hope so..... I don’t fancy leaving them on the bike. If not, I’ll spice in a push fit connector

pants. they need a temperature regulator (optional extra!!) to control the heat or else its just full blast all the time

Gerbing XR12 is way better.
