Everything You Need to Know About Heated Gloves


Thinking about getting yourself a pair of heated gloves for your next outdoor excursion? 

If so, you’ve come to the right place. However, before you dive in and buy a pair, make sure you know all the details. 

In this guide, we’ll explore the ins and outs of heated gloves so you can make an educated buying decision and keep your hands warm all winter long!

What Are Heated Gloves?

Heated gloves are often battery-powered and rechargeable, allowing you to turn the heating portion of them on and off as you please. The highest-end heated gloves allow for small heat adjustments as well, so you can dial in just the right amount of heat for your preferences. 

How Do Heated Gloves Work?

You can find heated gloves in a wide range of shapes and sizes, though most of them work using the same designs and components. On the inside, you’ll find battery packs that are connected to a system of wires, which run through the palm and into the fingers.

Most of the time, each glove will have its own battery pack, allowing you to connect both of them up to charge. 

When you flip the batteries on, an electrical current runs through the gloves and heats the wires up. Our heated gloves here at Kemimoto can be adjusted to run at different heat settings using the onboard electrical system. 

Are Heated Gloves Safe to Wear?

One of the first questions many people ask us when they’re thinking about buying heated gloves is, “Are heated gloves dangerous?”

Well, worry no more, as our heated gloves are 100% safe to wear and are some of the most effective gloves on the market today. 

The main concern people have with electrical gloves is the risk of electrical shock. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about it, as the wires are safely tucked away inside durable material. In fact, even if you were to actually touch one of the wires through exposed material, it wouldn’t shock you. 

The other concern people often have is whether or not their heated gloves will get too hot and catch fire. The answer is the same as before — no. 

Our batteries are made to shut down if they short-circuit for whatever reason. Even so, these batteries are not powerful enough that they would set the fabric on fire if there was an issue. 

How Much Do Heated Gloves Cost?

Our heated gloves range in cost, though most of the time, you’ll spend anywhere between $40 and $120 for a pair. Most higher-end gloves are $100+, and if you really want to make the most of their efficiency and longevity, I recommend spending a bit more to get yourself a higher-quality pair. 

How Warm Do Heated Gloves Get?

Regular winter gloves can only get as warm as the material that they are made out of. For example, if you have a pair of fleece gloves, they might be warm in cold weather, but once you get them in the snow, the loose-woven, non-water-resistant material won’t do you well. 

If your regular gloves get wet, they will likely stay wet, meaning your hands will just get colder and colder as the day goes on. Plus, many regular winter gloves are prone to allowing cold air through, exposing your hands and fingers to the harsh climate. 

High-end heated gloves provide exceptional insulation and are lined with highly durable waterproof material that is both flexible and comfortable. They are thin enough to comfortably ski or ride motorcycles with, yet thick enough to ensure quality insulation to keep your hands warm at all times. 

The outer shell of our Kemimoto heated gloves uses water-resistant and wind-proof polyester material, while the inside uses a mixture of cotton layers to keep your hands dry, comfortable, and warm. 

With the added heating element, our gloves can offer heat levels that go just beyond your regular internal temperature. On the low end, our gloves offer 40 to 50 degrees Celsius, while on the high end, they get up to 60 to 65 degrees Celsius, perfect for when temperatures start to dip below freezing. 

All of the heat expelled from your gloves is thanks to the rechargeable, lightweight battery. 

Can I Wash Heated Gloves?

If you’re dealing with a consistently cold winter, it’s likely that you’ll be wearing your gloves throughout the year, whether you’re doing work in the yard, running to the grocery store, or exercising out in the cold.

Luckily, washing heated gloves is a pretty easy process. All you have to do is remove the rechargeable batteries from your glove packs and toss your gloves in the washing machine as you would with any other piece of clothing.
