This is a very nice heated vest. A fresh set of batteries last over an hour and it is extremely warm. It feels extremely hot under 40 degrees and turning it off at times regulates the heat and makes the batteries last about 2 hours. I use it while motorcycle riding to warm up my lower back and it works perfectly. I tried running both sides at 12volts and will attach a regular motorcycle heated vest plug soon to save on batteries. Have not tried it with rechargeable, but it works great with cheap AA batteries. Looks exactly like a specific name brand that uses 3.7volt rechargeable L Ion battery packs. Gets really hot! I almost bought a name brand for much more money.

It was a very interesting garment. It would be something we can use up in the Northwest readily. My son has one in Hawaii and he uses it inside office building where there is refrigeration.
