Mobile Warming - Battery Powered Heated Apparel
Hey this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and I wanted to talk to you today about Mobile Warming Heated Apparel. Its fall, its time to get the heated gear out, insulated gear, starting to cool off and it wont be long before its really cold and youre gonna wish you had something that actually heated up to keep you warm when your on your rides. Now Mobile Warming Apparel is a little different from other types of heated apparel that we have seen, instead of being powered by your bikes electrical system and having to wire in a power lead to your bikes battery, the Mobile Warming Gear is actually battery powered so your actually going to get a small battery. Its a lithium-ion battery. Its only 7.4 volts 2.2 amp hours but this little tiny battery is actually going to power one of these jackets for up to 10 hours on a low power setting. Obviously on a high power setting its going to draw a little more current, so its not going to last as long but it will still give you hours of use and it comes with a wall charger so you can charge it up. So for commuting and rides when its just cold out this is definitely a great option. One thing that I love about mobile warming is its extremely versatile, in other words, its not just a motorcycle jacket. You can use one of these when you are out at football games anytime your out and its cold. You can wear one of these and you basically just have one of these batteries in you pocket. The battery has two functions, obviously its the battery but its also the controller. So basically the way it works you can actually hit this once and see what kind of charge you have in the battery. This battery is at 50 percent and the way the battery plugs in you will see there is just a small power lead that comes out and they have actually built in a little Velcro pocket or pouch inside the pocket. So to turn it on Im going to hold this on and it will beep. And now its at 100 percent and you can cycle down through several levels: 25, 50, 75, and 100 percent. That stashes in right there and you will hardly even notice its there, it stays right out of the way. Basically all these different vest and jackets have three heating elements. There are two in the chest and one right in the center of the back. So its not as fully heated as some other motorcycle apparel where you have heating elements running all the way down your arms but for the rider who wants something to just warm your core which is obviously the most important thing to keep warm, the mobile warming selection of gear is definitely definitely a good one to look at. You can check these out at our website at www.competitionaccessories.com. There is a variety of different fabrics and materials, some of them are very thin base layers that you would wear underneath a jacket and then other ones like this soft shell jacket actually have like a wind breaking material that is going to be functional off the bike and just around town as well. So there is vest, jackets, and as I said earlier there are also gloves available. We have a separate video going over the gloves as well, so make sure you check all those out on our website at www.competitionaccessories.com.

Heated jacket car charger - LwgeorgeiPARecommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Only used it once and it worked fine.
Cons: No problems.
Not much to say..It works.
A really excellent untethered heated jacket
Personally I'm not sure this is practical for motorcycling, but it's wonderful for everything else. The reason for my concern about riding is that unless your ride was under 4 hours the standard battery wouldn't last long enough. However for working on the bike in the garage, golfing, hiking or any other outdoor activity this jacket is great. Reasonably water repellent, heats nicely at 50 power which is good for about 4 hours of heat. Played a round of golf in one at 38 degrees earlier in the year and was comfortable in a t-shirt and this jacket. If you're active and generating some of your own heat you might be able to live with 25 power, which really lasts for a full day, but on a bike with a 35 degree wind it couldn't cut it. Go with one of the cabled heated jackets/vests available here for that purpose.
Sizing Chart & Specs for the Mobile Warming Heated Apparel Chargers, Batteries and Accessories
The Vests and Jackets run on the small side as they are made to fit snug against your body under your jacket or outer gear. If you want to wear them as a outer garment or would like a looser fit, just order up a size. This would especially be a good idea if you are going to be doing an activity that you need more room to move, like hiking, golfing, etc. Gloves are true to size.
