Because it has it's own battery. Any connection to the bike electrics will be to charge said battery.

Presumably it works from a mobile phone battery of some sort.
No information of battery size though. Just "up to" 8 hours at low heat. A little longer if connected to a USB charger while running.

Be nice and toasty if the lithium battery catches fire, as they sometimes do.LOL

I was visualising you dissapearing over the horizon with a plume of smoke trailing behind. LOL

Do you know how big that battery is? If you find it doesn't last long enough on a cold day you might be able to fit a larger one.

Or just carry 2 of the Aldi mobile phone rechargeable power packs with you which could be more flexible?

Depends on how much higher the discharge rate is than the charge rate.

I remember Maplin used to sell heated clothing powered by AA cells or rechargable nicd batteries.

No pace maker but lots of lower back pain - so a hot back is cool.....how i love a poor metaphor. I can plug into the bikes 12v supply via usb but the power pack fits the pocket.

I'm looking at this with great interest. So you can use it with the bike's usb or a power pack? I suppose the power pack's advantage is no wires - how long does it last. And what are your thoughts thus far, Bargain?
Cheers John.

Ta muchly. Big smile


USB connector seems to have become the standard now for recharging things. Even my battery booster uses a USB lead for recharging.

My low tech version, which I still have, runs on lighter fuel and keeps warm for up to 24 hours.

I don't fancy soaking my jacket in lighter fuel then setting fire to it just to keep warm. What if it spread to the petrol tank? That could be a bit risky

I suppose you could just take a short cut and put a match into the tank filler.

But my little gadget doesn't involve soaking a jacket, it's all safely enclosed. Certainly old tech, must be more than 50 years old, but still works.
