When looking for the right heated gloves for your cold hands, it can be tempting to look through the multitudes of battery-powered gloves for the additional warmth they seem to offer. But with several complaints against them, are they really worth the price and the struggle? Discover why UNIQKNITS™ self-heating gloves differ from others with built-in heaters or batteries. UNIQKNITS™ could be a better for your cold hands or any individuals suffering from one of the following diseases:

  • Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Scleroderma
  • Raynaud’s

Battery Life

Dealing with anything involving batteries brings along the added hassle of determining and then navigating the item’s battery life and charging schedule. Common complaints for battery-heated gloves at a lower price between $20 and $50 revolve around their 30- to 60-minute life and minimal heating power. And while other, more expensive gloves with triple settings are able to boast an eight-hour battery life on low power or two and a half hours on high, they come with their own set of issues.

Exorbitant Price

Acknowledging that certain higher-priced, battery-heated gloves work better than those at a lower cost does not take away from the excessive price tag associated with them. The highest pair currently on the market go for $400, while others hover around the $200 to $300 range — a hefty investment for gloves that could die on you at a moment’s notice in your time of need.

Bulky Construction

No matter how you look at it from the cheap to outrageous, battery-powered gloves have to allow space for a battery pack. This leads to bulky storage pockets either on your wrist or on the back of your hand, which can create an awkwardly imbalanced weight against your daily movements.

Mechanical Failures

Additional issues that come with battery-powered heated gloves are simply those connected to the mechanics of the battery devices. From simple charging deficiencies to malfunctioning connectors within the technology, you run the risk of your gloves not working the way that you paid for them to work.
