Men’s Convertible Heated Soft Shell Jacket v. Men’s Heated City Jacket

Not all soft shell is created equal. Both of these jackets combine the stylish aspect of moisture-wicking soft shell and hair-thin heating elements, but they really offer so many different things.

The Convertible Heated Soft Shell Jacket allows for full adaption for the weather. Go from jacket to vest in a matter of seconds with a few pulls of the zipper. We’ve seen these poorly executed, with large, annoying zippers on the sleeves. Not this one.  This heated jacket is streamlined and sleek, the zippers are discreet – allowing for a fully stylish jacket as well as a fully functioning heated vest.

In addition to being very versatile, the convertible jacket has three heating panels: two in the chest and one in the back, making sure you’ll stay warm all the way around, with or without the sleeves.

The Heated City Jacket is sleek, stylish and provides a lightweight jacket without compromising any comfort. With two heating panels in the back and two in the front, this newly released model is bound to be any skier’s best friend.

Both jackets use Venture Heat’s Lithium Ion Battery and can provide up to 5 hours of soothing comforting heat. You can’t go wrong with either jacket, which is always appreciated.

Extend the Life of Lithium-Ion Batteries

Lithium-Ion batteries have become the new standard for portable consumer electronics. Li-Ion batteries are a significant improvement over older Nickel Cadmium batteries.

Lithium-Ion batteries offer twice the energy density of a standard Nickel Cadmium battery which allows the battery to run much longer on a single charge. Lithium-Ion batteries also self-discharge at approximately one-half the rate of a Nickel Cadmium battery.

Despite the fact that Lithium-Ion batteries are low-maintenance, there are some steps you can take to extend the life of your Lithium-Ion battery.

  • Charge Lithium-Ion batteries fully before beginning to use the battery
  • Keep Lithium-Ion batteries fully charged when not in use
  • Charge Lithium-Ion batteries regularly, at least every few months.
  • Avoid regularly running Lithium-Ion batteries too low
  • Never leave Lithium-Ion batteries discharged for long – the batteries do self-discharge and the charge could drop low enough to damage the battery
  • Keep Lithium-Ion batteries out of extreme temperature -high temperatures may cause premature battery failure while lower temperatures can prevent batteries from fully charging.
  • Store Lithium-Ion batteries in a cool, dry place if you will not be using the battery for several weeks

Batteries are categorized as “consumables.” which means that they are expected to wear out eventually. Even if you take the best possible care of your battery, its performance will degrade over time. Accept the fact that your battery won’t last forever, no matter what you do.

The useful capacity of a Lithium-Ion battery decrease by around 10% each year. Lithium-Ion batteries usually have a service life of 2-3 years. These batteries begin aging when they are manufactured – not when you begin using the battery. Manufacturers usually anticipate a life expectancy of 300-500 discharge cycles.

Oxidation in the cells can prevent an old battery from discharging properly, so even when left on a shelf, a battery’s lifespan shortens with time. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some steps that you can take to ensure the Li-Ion batteries last as long as possible. While Lithium-Ion batteries may not last forever, they’ll benefit from a little tender loving care.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Need Heated Apparel

Whether you knew it or not, heated apparel features benefits that are highly advantageous to anyone spending time out in the cold.  Though you may not have experienced the luxuries of heated clothing yet, you have certainly had to deal with the hassles of chilly weather or drafty rooms.  VentureHeat offers a complete lineup of heated gear designed to keep your entire body warm, no matter what the weather has in store.

Take a look at the following list to find out why once you try heated clothing, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

5. Minimize bulky layers 

Traditional cold weather gear relies on layers of bulk to keep your body warm.  The idea behind this method of warming is dependent on trapping the heat that the body produces.  As you know, layers of insulated winter gear only goes so far in keeping your body warm.  A major problem in layering is dealing with perspiration.  The body begins to sweat in order to compensate for the heat being trapped by the insulation.  This causes problems as the sweat is also trapped in the insulation, which will create adverse effects due to the lower temperatures outside. You then have the additional hassle of being both wet and cold.

VentureHeat realizes that layering is not the most effective way in keeping you warm.  Instead of stuffing the outerwear with a bounty of insulation, VentureHeat uses active heating panels, positioned strategically throughout your body for maximum warmth.  This shows that dressing to compensate for colder temperatures does not necessarily mean having to wear more as a heated vest or heated jacket will work great to keep you warm all day long.

4. Regain your mobility
Freeing yourself from the thought that in order to stay warm during the winter means you have to pile on the layers opens up a whole new world of activities you will be able to take part in, without having to battle against your over-puffed outerwear.  Whether you are working outdoors, playing sports, or simply trying to manage everyday tasks while out in the cold, VentureHeat’s Heated Apparel makes life easier.

Reducing layers of insulation gives you your mobility back while the heating elements keep you sufficiently warmed. These heating panels feature hair-thin micro fibers that flex and bend naturally with your body so you will never have to worry about them getting in your way.  In fact, they are so thin that you will forget that they are even there when you power the heat off.

3. Manage your Raynaud’s Disease

Raynaud’s disease is a condition that causes areas of your body to feel numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. The smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin constrict which limits blood from reaching the affected areas.

When the symptoms of this condition attack, heat often helps to ease the pain.  Using heated gear allows those living with Raynaud’s to enjoy the outdoors more.  Also, since VentureHeat’s heated apparel gives no indication from sight alone that it differs from conventional clothing, it is great to wear indoors as well to ward off the chills of a drafty room without having to bundle up. The Rechargeable Battery Heated Glove Liners are a great choice for those with Raynaud’s.

2.  Protect Against Frostbite
Frostbite strikes when the skin and the tissue just underneath it freezes.  The skin becomes very cold, then numb, hard, and pale.  Frostbite can be extremely painful and leads to severe complications if left untreated.

Protect yourself from frostbite by looking into VentureHeat’s heated gear, with special attention to their array of heated gloves.  Styled as high performance winter gloves, these heated gloves will protect your fingers even before you power them on.  Once you experience the relaxing heat that the heated gloves provide, you will be sure to always have a pair on hand!

1. Enjoy Being Outdoors Longer!
The cold weather tends to limit our desires and abilities in being outdoors for extended periods of time.  If you have noticed that you are not as active during the winter, it is time to regain your lifestyle and continue to enjoy the activities you love all year long.  Instead of letting the weather control you, you can control the weather with VentureHeat’s Heated Clothing!

Heated Vests: Taking Vests to a Whole New Level

Heated Vests: Taking Vests to a Whole New Level

Outerwear vests have become a staple for cold weather climates.  As a fashion statement, vests never go out of style.  Having the ability to be worn as a standalone, or paired underneath another jacket, the options of a vest reach far and wide.

One obvious drawback of vests is that because of the lack of sleeves, extreme cold conditions are no match for a standard vest.

Heated vests, on the other hand, give you style choices you prefer matched with the warmth you demand. Heated vests use long-lasting lithium-ion batteries to power the hair-thin heating panels. These heating panels are strategically placed on your body to keep your core warm.  Keeping your core warm is key in warming your entire body.

Utilizing micro-fibers in the heating panels, the amount of bulky insulation found in traditional vests is greatly reduced.  Insulated vests are designed with the thought of trapping your body’s heat. The drawbacks of this method of warming your body outweigh the benefits. The amount of bulk used in a traditional insulated vest is much higher than that of a heated vest as heated vests have the luxury of actually producing heat rather than simply attempting to trap heat.  This added bulk also limits your mobility and detracts from your style.

 

Heated vests not only improve your body’s warmth, but also give you greater performance by being sleeker, and more form-fitting allowing you to move freely.

If you currently enjoy the adaptability of vests, imagine the possibilities of a heated vest.  With a temperature controller, you have the option to regulate the heat to your exact desire.  Power up the heat to the maximum setting on chilly mornings then set the levels to to the low setting as the sun comes up.  When you head in for lunch, switch off the heat completely.  That is what makes heated vests so convenient, is that you are not limited to a single heat setting and can choose to wear the vest on its own even without the heat powered on.

When you are ready for greater control, more styling options, and ultimate warmth, then you are ready for a heated vest.

Enjoy the cold weather more with a core-warming heated jacket.

As long as the Earth keeps revolving winter will come, whether you like it or not.  Instead of spending these cold months shivering or staying inside, embrace the outdoors with an extra boost of heat to keep you warm and comfortable.

Heated jackets are the perfect solution to not only make winter bearable, but even enjoyable.  Utilizing micro-carbon fibers, heated jackets maintain the same look and feel as ordinary lightweight jackets.  Advancements in heated clothing technology has enabled these micro fibers to become hair-thin so you will not even notice they are there as they move and fold just like the fabric of the jacket.

While traditional jackets rely on layers of bulky insulation to trap your body’s heat, heated jackets utilize active heating panels placed in key areas on your core.  Traditional insulated jackets tend to carry more bulk to help increase their ability to trap your body’s heat.  The problem with this method, besides constricting your mobility, is that if the insulation gets wet, the insulation actually creates adverse effects.

Heated jackets make up for this limitation by continually providing warmth to the body even when you are in a relaxed state or if the jacket is wet.

Because of these advantages, heated jackets are great for not only ski and snowboard enthusiasts, but also for anyone residing in cold climate areas.

  

Another great benefit of heated jackets is that because they look like an ordinary lightweight jacket, they can be worn all year long.  You have the ability to turn on the heat when you need it and turn it off when you don’t.

Powered by slim, long-lasting Lithium-Ion batteries, consistent heating levels will effectively produce heat for up to 6 straight hours.  After only a few hours of charging, the rechargeable batteries are ready to go for another day of heated comfort.

If you tend to go into hibernation mode when the temperature drops, a heated jacket will give you the added energy you need to brave the winter season.

Heated jackets are also great for people dealing with poor circulation and problems keeping their bodies warm.  Steady heat levels that can be adjusted to your own particular needs, making everyday living much more comfortable.

Once you experience the comforts of being able to create your own personal micro-climate, you will wonder how you ever got by without a heated jacket in the past.  You will soon find yourself taking your new heated jacket with you every time you head out the door, making it your go-to jacket as it is prepared to take on whatever Mother Nature throws at you!

Electric Heated Gloves

Electric Heated Gloves
Keeping your fingers warm all winter long.

Winter gloves work fine for blocking wind and resisting moisture, but they lack in keeping your fingers adequately warm.  This is because standard winter gloves depend on a layer of insulation stuffed into the glove with hopes to trap what little heat your hand is producing.  When temperatures fall, the effectiveness of this method quickly dwindles as the outside elements over power your hand’s ability to produce heat, which in turn leads to cold fingers.

Dealing with cold fingers can be a painful experience as you lack the ability to fully control the movement in your digits.  This decrease in mobility is both frustrating and potentially dangerous.

To put an end to cold fingers altogether, heated gloves work by producing active heat that is delivered directly to the source of the problem.  Heated gloves use micro-carbon fibers which are about 10X thinner than the human hair to warm up the perimeter of your hand. These heating elements move and flex just like the materials in the glove making their existence go unnoticed.

Powered by long-lasting lithium-ion batteries, you can rest assured that you will feel consistent heated comfort throughout your fingers.  After up to 6 straight hours of active heat, simply recharge the batteries and you are ready to go for another day of soothing warmth.

 

Temperature controllers allow you to regulate the heat emitted to your fingers so you will never be too warm or too cold again. The idea behind heated gloves is to make your hand temperature neutral by creating your own personal micro-climate. You now have the power to adjust the heat according to your own particular desire.

Heated gloves give you the ability to regain your mobility and make cold weather outings much more enjoyable. Not only are they great for skiers, motorcyclists, and hunters, but heated gloves are perfect for anyone dealing with cold temperatures.

Those of us that suffer from Raynaud’s disease can benefit greatly with heated gloves as they effectively warm the extremities and reduce the symptoms of an attack.  Improving blood circulation within your fingers with active heat can help to treat attacks from Raynaud’s disease making everyday living more comfortable.

Heated gloves are the answer you have been waiting for. Stop suffering with freezing fingers and look forward to heading outside when the winter season sets in.
