Don’t worry, there’s no risk for an electrical shock and you can feel safe about the batteries. The batteries have safety features built in. And more importantly, the battery won’t heat to its flash point temperature (the point at which it could cause a fire).

To use the battery

  • first connect it to the cable, then insert both into the battery pocket.
  • The power button will blink three times to indicate that the battery is in use—if it does not, please recharge it.
  • For optimal comfort, we recommend that the cables be kept as free of knots and other impediments as possible.
  • Press and hold the button on the glove for ~3 seconds, until the light turns on.
  • The glove is now heating up, and the red light should be blinking slowly.

This process takes about 5 minutes. You can press and hold the button once more to go directly into one of its three temperature settings, which will also reduce its “heat boost” effect.

10. How Does a Heated Glove Work?

how Does a Heated Glove Work?Heated gloves come in all sizes, but they all work the same way. Tiny wires are woven into the lining of a glove, and a battery is attached to those wires. When a switch on the battery is switched on and electricity is passed through those wires, the heat inside the glove can be turned on or off.

Manufacturers design gloves to keep your hands warm in cold weather. The gloves are most efficient when your arms are pumping enough blood to your hands to keep them warm and when you press a button on the gloves to activate their heat source.
