To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The overall quality of gloves is ok except for the battery and heat elements. Fully charged battery last about 1 hour with medium setting. The worst part is that you can’t wash this glove without damaging the heat element. I had to return this product as it isn’t worth paying AUD170. 30Aud winter gloves worth more than this one.
Extremely disappointed with this product and this vendor. The gloves I purchased were faulty. They did not work. I contacted this vendor twice and was promised replacement gloves and I never received them.
I am a long time Amazon Prime shopper and RARELY have had bad experiences with my purchases until now. I purchased these heated gloves so I could keep my hands warm during ski season.
I charged them up per the instructions and then hooked up the batteries to both of the gloves. I followed the instructions to turn on the battery by holding it for several seconds. The batteries lit up. But then, when I went to select my heat control for the glove, nothing happened. I tried multiple times to no avail. Then, I pulled the battery out to see what happened when I tried to select the heat setting. Each time I pressed the button on the glove to turn on the heat setting, the battery turned off. That was the case for both of them. I wasted a good hour dealing with these expensive, malfunctioning gloves, and that's enough for me, so I am returning them.
Take heed, folks, as you may want to question the reliability of Amazon reviews. This is the second malfunctioning product in the same week, whereas in the past 5+ years, I can't think of one. Amazon's reviews may be from "verified purchasers" but my suspicion is the sellers, wherever they may come from, are having their friends, family and employee buy their products (probably getting a refund) to post bogus reviews. I've noticed some similar products going to the top of the charts, and the reviews tend to have similar grammatical errors and similar marketing approaches. Seems too coincidental to me. "Amazon's Choice" doesn't mean anything to me any more, which is a shame, as I have been a loyal Amazon Prime customer for as long as I can remember. Amazon, I hope you're listening!!
While these gloves might be OK by themselves (but then way too expensive), the heating feature does not work as advertised. Set a medium heat, I was barely able get two hours out of them. So, assuming the batteries were defective I set about trying to contact the maker. First, the well-hidden phone number is not operative. So then I sent an email and after a long wait got a reply saying they would replace the batteries. This went on a number of times with no replacements sent. You are dealing with someone in China here who will not honor their warranty. Stay away!
I very rarely take time to write reviews but I just returned from a 35 min. walk cut short because my fingers were numb. I bought 3 pair of these gloves for myself and family last winter and used them at most for an hour about 3 to 4 days per week for about 3 months. I have a very hard time believing the reviews of others who describe how how well or how long the heat in these gloves performed. We used these for morning dog walks in Michigan. To get any significant heat from them we always chose the high setting. By 45 min into a walk these gloves were no longer heating despite always starting with a full recharged batteries. It was better than nothing though and I followed the directions to periodically charge batteries through the summer to prolong their life. Just started using the gloves again for walks this January and our gloves either barely heated a short time or not at all. Purchased replacement batteries for 2 pair of gloves. Three of four gloves now emits a very small amount of heat on the high setting for about 45 min. Significantly less heat than last year. The other glove doesn’t heat at all. I’ve tried positioning the batteries in the glove pocket differently to see if glove wiring is the problem. Nothing has helped. Considering the premium price paid for the gloves, the replacement batteries, and the short amount of time they provided any warmth, this purchase was an expensive mistake. I was really misled by other reviews.
I bought these for my son who works in Material Receiving in Ohio. The winter has been brutal so I thought this would help. The first pair we got we immediately returned because they didn't heat up. The 2nd pair would get him through the first few hours and then they were just gloves. So if you are going to use them to go get the mail or to drive to work and take them off then get these. If you are looking for something to provide your fingers and hand protection from the brutal cold for hours and hours, move on. These ain't them.
The glove itself is well made and insulated. The heat is barely noticeable. I went on a hike in 35 - 40 degree F. weather, turned one glove on, the other off for many minutes. Could barely feel any warmth. Switched the other on/off; same thing. I have 12V wired motorcycle gloves, jacket, etc. so am used to heated clothing. Unf. these basically do nothing. Which is a shame, because I really want a good pair of bettery-heated gloves for hiking. Needless to say, I'm returning these.
Cons 1. poor battery life. 1.5-2 hrs 2. Not warm enough if you have Raynaud's 3. super high pitched barely audible squeal from charger that makes my dog run into the other room 4. If you could charge without having to pull the batteries out everytime would be better. 5. Cost considering all of the above.
They are suppose to heat to 104 at room temperature, but out side they are poorly insulated so they drop down to 55-60F and don't warm back up. Buy beware, and they are out of China and poor customer service. I bought 2 pairs and they both do the same thing.
