2013 Kinsey Dealer Show

We are excited to be participating in the 2013 Kinsey Dealer Show right now.  VentureHeat is here this weekend showing off some of our latest products and advancements in our heated gear technology.  Alongside over 200 other manufacturers in the archery and hunting accessories industry, we are thrilled to be a part of this show to present our heated jackets, gloves, and vests to archery and hunting enthusiasts.

While only midway through the morning, we have already received a ton of positive feedback from the archery community as many have found that by using our heated jackets or vests, they would not have to layer on bigger, bulky jackets to stay warm which can get in the way when you are using a bow.  Our heated soft shell jackets have heating elements placed throughout your core and allow you to adjust the temperature to your comfort level.  So instead of packing on the layers in the morning, only to shed them by the afternoon, you can instead just wear one of our heated jackets and change the temperature as needed throughout the day.

Trade Show BoothIf you happen to be in the Hershey, PA area come check us out at the Convention Center and try out our electric heated gear firsthand. Or meet up with us next weekend in Lynnwood, WA at the Euro Moto Show where we will have some of our heated motorcycle gear on display.  See ya there!

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.

Best Remedy for Storm Season? A Better Jacket

If you’re in the North East, you’re probably freezing, or close to it. Your old winter jackets, the one that you’ve had for years, isn’t going to last much longer, and let’s face it: nice, durable and warm coats are expensive.  So why sacrifice money for an overpriced brand when you can spend less money on quality fabric & intelligent design that has been engineered for warmth and comfort?

With Venture Heat’s Heated Soft Shell Jacket for Men you’ll be warmed by the hair-thin heating fibers that take energy from a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Active heat coupled with insulation, moisture-wicking soft shell fabric and your own personal climate means that you’re going to stay warm, even if the battery runs out or turned off. What’s more, the jacket is cut classically, so you’ll never be out of style, but always warm.

Don’t take our word for it. Take our 10 years of business as a small token of our success and ingenuity.

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.

Xtreme Comfort Technology

Combining micro-fiber heating elements with maximum comfort.

Traditional heated gear is constructed using stiff resistor cables and coils that create hot spots which can burn your skin in some areas and leave you cold in others.  In attempt to disperse heat evenly, extra insulation is added which creates bulk and restricts mobility.

Venture Heat has pioneered hair-thin micro fiber heating elements that are both pliable and flexible.  The Xtreme Comfort Technology is coil-free allowing for a lightweight and less intrusive design.  The efficient heating system provides instantaneous and consistent heat levels throughout your entire body.

The XCT system has been integrated in  the 7.4 Volt rechargeable battery line for ultimate portability allowing you to take heat with you where ever you go.

The 12 Volt product line is powered by a motorcycle, ATV, or snowmobile which lets you experience heated comfort for the entire length of the ride.  With head to toe heating panels, you are able to connect your gear together for the ultimate heated performance.

As the industry leader in tech enabled heated outerwear and accessories our XCT heating system was designed specifically for the outdoor enthusiast.  Choose VentureHeat for Xtreme Warmth and Xtreme Comfort.
