i just don't want to deal with the wiring that goes along with the plug in gloves or heated grips. having their own power source, you can use the battery ones anywhere.
i do remember hippo hands, but i have not seen them in years & had forgotten about them.
if there is anyone out there that has the heated gloves that have their own battery pack i would like to hear from you.
I started with powerlet heated gloves. One glove quit heating after about 10 months. The company was incredably helpful. If my memory serves me correctly they sent me a new pair of liners immediately. My return crossed the new liners in the mail. I liked that.
Oh yea, they had discontinued the gloves–that's why I got liners.
The liners worked great for 8 months, now one of them has quit heating. I'm currently on a trip, so I haven't called the company, but these failures are getting to be too much, even if they have great customer service.
Generally, the wires to the gloves are a pain. My next step will probably be heated grips.
However, a huge factor in hand warmth is wind. I put brush guards on for cold weather riding. To break the wind. Major improvement.
I also have a huge pair of rubber gloves that I wear over my leather Moto gloves. Big difference. Especially if there is moisture in the air.
