Best Battery Heated Gloves & Mittens: The Definitive Guide

If you are prone to cold fingers, like I am, you are probably looking for the best battery heated gloves that actually work for the 2017-2018 winter season.

Many people use heated gloves or mittens when skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, motorcycle riding and during other snow sports.

I would like to show you what to look for when making your selection and my top picks.


What To Look For

Not all heated gloves are made the same and some are better than others. There are a couple of things to keep in mind and they are:

  • How long the batteries last
  • Know what you are using them for
  • Warmth the gloves provide when heater isn’t on

I once read a customer complaint about a pair that only gave heat for 45 minutes before the battery died. This happened when it was set on the highest level, but still; if you’re paying a few hundred for gloves you want them to do their job for a few hours. A decent battery will last over 6 hours on low, 4 hours on medium and over 2 hours on its highest setting. Anything under that defeats the purpose of having heated gloves in the first place. 😉

Next, are you going to be wearing them when shoveling the drive way, skiing and snowboarding all day, night trips into the mountains? The bigger the threat of frostbite and subzero temperatures the more you should invest in your purchase. Someone spending 20 minutes in the cold should be looking for a different pair than someone spending days in freezing temperatures.

Lastly, there are going to be times when your battery is dead or you don’t need high heat to keep your hands warm. It’s important to know what you’re getting when this happens. You can determine this by looking at the materials the glove is made off, types of insulation and liners.

All the gloves on this list keep these points in mind. They have excellent battery life, excel in all different kinds of conditions and will keep your hands warm even when the heat isn’t turned on.
