OK I am a woosy!!
« on: October 27, 2018, 17:00:44 »
Finally got some time and weather is dry. So put on thermals, beanie hat, and fingerless neoprene gloves.
Temperature not that low at about 8 Deg C but after about 10mins my fingers were freezing!
By the end of the 4 packs I had my fingers were difficult to move!

So has anyone tried the cheapy usb heated gloves you can get for about £4 on ebay or about £9 on amazon?
The ebay ones are just heated 1 side Amazon ones heated both sides of your hand. I was thinking of running them off a 2A lipo to usb converter I have  ::) 

Anyone think they might work or am I just a woosy?

nope I went further....I just made my own heated hoodie with the USB heat pads ran off a powerbank ::)








One of the best things I ever made, three settings 30-35c, 35-40c, 40-45c....and on max I dont even feel the frost when walking the dog at 7am ~~, been considering extending some more pads out to the hands actually so i might add a pair of those gloves and make them detachable to the existing pads

I like that. I will start looking on ebay. Cheers.
These are the gloves I have ordered https://amzn.to/2RhLBy9 with 5% off £8.54. They seem to be one of the few that are heated on top and bottom of hands. Also I am hoping to be able to use the mitten bit so just my thumbs stick out in the cold  ::)

Went out again on Sunday for 8 packs but the last 2 were a struggle to keep my fingers moving. Again ony 7Deg C but it was a bit breezy as well.
Ordered these gloves https://amzn.to/2CRweIG they arrived today! They have heater elements that go around your hand covering palm and back of hand.
I am pleased with them as I can have thumbs out of gloves and index finger for arm switch out of mitten bit. They seem a good fit and reasonably warm.

Hopefully my hands will be toasty next time  ::)
