Just plug yourself in lol

Problem might be that the heating is in the chest - I'd have thought around kidneys would be better. Related, though, are heated gloves and insoles at a fraction of the cost these things often are. Ordered a few of each in hope...

Thanks for posting.

a wouldnt waste my money....if there anything like the insoles they sell...total crap

Ive got the gloves, there good but they eat Batteries fast fast fast, and rechargeables dont last very long :-(

Cue the save the planet brigade

This has to be pretty awful surely?

Can someone do the maths?

AA Battery 2500mAh x 6 = 1.5Ah

"Warms" up for 2hrs

How warm can this get really?

What's wrong with a hot water bottle?

Easy remedy, cost-wise, just connect one of these to an old, fully-charged, car battery. Place the battery in a spare shopping trolley and, voilà!, you are free to roam without restriction.

I vote for a plug in one...

body temp is 37 .. and if properly dressed this wont add anything that a good base layer fleece top coat can provide

6 batteries every 2 hours, or just wear an extra layer. Is this an April fool hoax?

Must be April fools.

Also, something so useless that get's through so many batteries in such a short space of time should be banned on environmental reasons alone.

Put 2 or 3 thin jumpers on and tuck the underlayers in to stop heat escape, job done. Or at least, it's how I stay warm walking the dog on these cold frosty mornings.

I got myself the fleece and the jacket for £6.99 and £9.99 impressed with the quality of both, when I asked the bloke behind the counter about the 2 hrs battery time he stated they last longer than this as they turn of when warm and perhaps the 2hrs quoted was how long they take to get cold not sure how accurate this is but for £6.99 for a quality fleece and £9.99 for a padded jacket cant complain , got a small electric static charge from mine when i first put it on but this might be due to the packaging.Their was also a heated fishing hat in my local store (Maidstone,Kent)

Might be handy to wear under my race suit for cold practice sessions in an open car. Anyone tried running these off a 12v supply? 12V isn't much higher than 9V, but in use the car actually puts out just over 14V.

Strap on a hot water bottle and carry a flask with hot water.

Not only are they plop, they come up really small too, a large is probably a small in normal clothing.

Rechargeable are fine unless you have crap ones, not sure of the capacity of my batteries but I get longer than 2 hours.

Just picked mine up from Teeside park branch, they also had heated gloves and heated hat for £3.99 each.

This had me in stitches.

Imagine walking around, the high street with a shopping trolley, inside which is a car battery and wires are connected from under your garment, to the battery. Walk into a bank and I'm sure most people would think you are there to blow it up! Walk into an airport and and within seconds you are likely to be "taken down".

Rather than over-volting it, just get a voltage converter, they're cheap enough eg ebay.co.uk/itm…1c0

I will just buy to use as a fleece for cycling !! Will generate my own body heat .

April fool !

what a waste of money - just put some extra layers on !

But for those who have bought one I do have some woolworths redundant stock aa batteries - - so i can do you a deal !!! (Ive been looking for some fools who are easily parted from their money :-)

Will wearing this top make me get an electric shock if I decide to go swimming in it?

I'm gonna wear this next time
I'm in the US and see what the TSA make of it

You're talking absolute cow dung!

Picked one up this morning. Can't complain for the money. It is two separate battery packs, one each side. Vest decent quality, a bit "snug" if you are a biggish bloke. They are 46" chest and it fits me (48"), snugly, being a vest makes it useable, if it had sleeve maybe not. Buy two and wear one back to front, all sides covered X). Perhaps not.

"oh no car number 5 has caught fire.. No wait.. The Driver is actually on fire! ".... Hehe
But seriously I wouldn't plug myself to a car..
If you wanted to however you could always just attach some resistors to dumb down voltage.

Took delivery of gloves, insoles and gilet this morning...
Gilet: decent enough but so far untested for heating, though I really can't believe it's great. Hope to be proved wrong.
Gloves: again, not tested the heating but incredible value even if they fail. Slightly odd shape (little finger too long) and generously sized.
Insoles: for the first time since October I returned from a cycle ride with functioning toes, no chilblains. 2 hours of between 1 and 3C, after which rechargeable batteries were still putting a little heat through. It is only a little (even with fresh batteries), but that is the difference between pain and joy.
Thank you SO much for posting this!
