Tips for Heated Apparel

Help your heated gear to last long into the future.

Heated apparel is more than just a novelty or gimmick.  It’s a method of dressing smarter for cold weather to effectively keep your body properly heated.  Here are a few tips to make the most out of your heated clothing.

Fully Charge the Batteries

The 7.4 Volt lithium ion batteries that come standard with all of VentureHeat’s heated winter outerwear will perform optimally after first being fully charged.  To do this, simply plug the battery pack into the included wall charger.  When first plugged in, you will notice a red indicator light on the charger which means that the batteries are receiving power, and charging up.  After 4-6 hours of charging, the indicator light on the wall charger will turn from red to green.  Once the charger shows a steady green light, the batteries have been fully charged and are ready for use.  To get the most out of your heated gear, it is recommended to charge up your batteries  before each use.

Store When Not In Use

During the warmer months when you are not using your heated gear regularly, store your clothing in a cool, dry place. Prior to storage, fully charge the batteries.  If you are storing the heated gear for extended periods, it is recommended to charge up the batteries every 3 months to ensure that they will be ready to go when you pull them out of the closet the next time.

Wash with Care

To protect the longevity of the heating panels, spot cleaning is recommended.  Hang dry and do not iron. Bleach and other cleaning solvents should not be used.  Also, to take care of the heating elements, do not twist or wring your heated gear.  Following these instructions will keep your heated gear lasting for years to come.
