Are You Ready For Winter? It’s Ready For You

Winter does not wait for anybody or anything, and will be here before we realize it.  We just want to make sure you are prepared all winter long by keeping you warm, comfortable and ready for any adventure.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the 2015-2016 winter will be about the same, if not colder than last year.

Venture Heat has you covered for any cold weather situation, from battery heated jackets, base layers, and heated gloves to heat therapy items and motorcycle heated clothing.  Our inventory is fully stocked with all sizes and colors.

If you already have our heated gear then all you need to do is make sure your batteries are charged and tested.

Check out this post to learn some tips to maintain and increase battery life.

Taking Care of Heated Clothing

Spring is finally in full swing and most of us couldn’t be happier that the sun is shinning and temperatures are heating up.  So we just wanted to give you a few friendly reminders of the best ways to take care of your heated gear while it waits for next winter.

WASH & CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Remove battery and connecting cable (select models applied). We recommend spot cleaning with damp cloth or hand wash in cold water with mild detergent; hang dry only. Do not twist the garment to prevent damage to cable. Do not dry clean or bleach.

CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS
1.) Plug charger into wall power outlet (before plugging battery into charger)
2.) Connect battery(s) into charger
3.) The charger light will turn from red to green once battery(s) is fully charged
*Do not overcharge the battery(s)*

*Reminder: as winter has come to an end (almost for some people) please fully charge your batteries every 3 months. This prolongs the battery life.* 

BATTERY CARE (select models)
To prolong the optimal performance of our lithium-ion battery, we recommend the following steps:

  • Only use battery charger provided by Venture Heat
  • Fully charge the battery prior to first use (battery indicator will turn green).  Charging will vary and you should unplug the battery from charger after the battery is charged
  • Battery should be charged before storage and at least once every 3 months
  • Over time, lithium-ion batteries tend to lose their capacity due to their chemical nature. Erratic charging and heat speed up this degradation. Store in a cool and dry area. Typical battery life spans may range from 2-5 years even with ideal storage conditions and care
  • Do not use batteries that are not designed for the specific model (this voids the warranty and may cause damage)

More Than Just Heated Gear

This winter has been pretty brutal throughout most of the United States.  Even though we are approaching the end of February, Spring doesn’t seem to be approaching any time soon.  Which is why we wanted to provide you with some tips on staying warm, comfortable and maybe even save some money on your bills by replacing your home’s heat with Venture Heat’s heated clothing and gear.

Our heated clothing does more than just keep your adventure going – it allows you to create a personal micro-climate wherever you want and whenever you need it.  Which means it doesn’t always have to be worn outside.  We have seen and heard that our customers save money on their heat bills during the winter months by the following suggestions:

Inside Look at Heated Clothing Technology

Inside every one of our heated apparel products contains the technology to keep you warm for hours on end.  Gone are the days of running coils through mazes within the clothing added bulkiness and limited mobility.

We use micro-alloy fibers for heating panels in our 12v Power Sports line, which provide durability, comfort and allows for more electrical current to travel through, thus improving heating efficiency.  The micro-alloy fibers are ideal for larger heating surfaces while still being able to withhold a larger power supply – perfect for our 12 volt jackets, vests and pants.  The micro-alloy fiber also provides enough strength to reach full heating capacity in under 10 seconds.

As for our battery heated clothing, we use carbon fiber wiring which was initially designed for aerospace applications.  The carbon fiber wiring is great for smaller areas with a slightly less power supply (7 volts for our batteries) but is still flexible enough so you never feel the heating panels. Even though the heating panels are a touch smaller than our power sports line, they are strategically placed through the garment to keep your core warm.

Fun fact: did you know that there are more than 3,000 threads of carbon fiber in the above photo?
