How Do We Heat Our Products?

We live in a time where technology is improving each day, which is good, but it also makes your brand new, super expensive phones and computers outdated very fast. The good news, is that when good technology is developed, not only can you get great products, but they don’t become outdated because they still work and perform well.

That’s exactly the story behind Venture Heat. When the heated clothing industry started, bulky wires and heavy cages were the only technology available it wasn’t cheap in any sense of the word. When Venture came around, we changed all of that. Our engineers developed never before seen hair-thin carbon fiber heating elements. You literally cannot tell whether or not they are in the fabric. Discreet and slim, you’re able to order a form-fitting jacket, like the City Collection line, without sacrificing style or comfort.

Our own Lithium Ion Batteries are made specifically for our products, which means don’t try to plug anything else in! It may look like it fits, but it won’t and it may actually cause items to break. We’re the leading manufacturer of heating clothing. Know why? Because we’re the best at what we do.

Ride in Style with a Women’s Heated Motorcycle Vest

Why sacrifice style just because you’re trying to stay warm on your motorcycle?  A lot of women are forced to put up with ill-fitting clothes, just to make sure they can feel their body for the duration of the ride. Now you can stay warm, while still looking your very best. Our 12V Heated Women’s Vest has heating panels in the front and back, sure to keep you cozy even during your longest rides.

What makes this vest better than others? Well first of all, you can hook it up directly to your battery with the included battery harness, and even connect it to multiple pieces of our heated clothing. Still not enough? Okay…

How about the fact that this vest has a fleece-lined collar and moisture wicking fabric to make sure you are completely weatherproofed? Zipper yourself up, turn on the heater and go for a ride. C’mon, you’re going to be going headstrong against the wind, make sure you have the right kind of armor for that battle.

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.

Plug-In Heat Therapy

As you know, heat therapy can help to provide the body with relief from chronic aches and pains. The benefits of heat therapy are found at the cellular level where the heat dilates blood vessels and increases the flow of oxygenated blood to help repair damaged tissues.  Toxins and lactic acids that cause stiffness and discomfort are flushed away to aid you in regaining your mobility.  Far Infrared Ray (FIR) heat therapy goes above and beyond other forms of heat therapy methods without any of the negative drawbacks.

 

Click here to learn more about why heat therapy is the most recommended non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical form of pain relief and rehabilitation by physical therapists and medical professionals alike and learn more about FIR.

Though physical therapists and chiropractors have been choosing to use FIR heat therapy in their practices for years, an at-home counterpart has not been readily available.  VentureHeat has managed to take the same technology found at the doctor’s office and has integrated it into ergonomic, form fitting wraps.

These wraps are powered by a standard wall outlet found in your home or office.  The current is converted down to only 12 Volts DC, making these heated wraps much safer than competitor brands.  By reducing the power input, VentureHeat has virtually eliminating any existence of electro magnetic fields (EMFs), which can be detrimental to the health.  Safety is the top priority at VentureHeat and is shown by all of the features that go into all of our products.

A built-in automatic timer will power down the heat after 30 minutes of use as many medical professionals recommend half hour sessions of heat therapy.  This feature helps you to better monitor your heat therapy sessions.  However, if you would like to extend your heated comfort beyond the 30 minutes, simply press the power back on for another session.

 

One benefit of VentureHeat’s Plug-In Heat Therapy Wraps is that you will never have to worry about running out of power or charging up batteries.  As long as you are near an outlet, you can experience heated comfort tailored to you personal desires.  The included temperature controller gives you the convenience to modulate the 4 heat settings to your exact needs.


These wraps are made out of flexible neoprene rubber and lined with soft fleece for maximum comfort.  The 3D-tailoring not only helps the wraps fit better, but also ensures heat is delivered directly to the ailing area. VentureHeat’s Plug-In Heat Therapy Wraps are great for both home and office use whether you are watching T.V., reading a book, or sitting at the computer. It is time to start enjoying the benefits of FIR Heat Therapy without having to visit the doctor.  Look to VentureHeat to regain your mobility and ease your aches.

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.

heated glove liners

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!
