Warm Up with Milwaukee USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves

Milwaukee USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves FI

It’s that lovely time of the year when the winter cold hits us head-on, but that’s OK, our hands are nice and toasty. Assuming that you’re wearing the Milwaukee USB rechargeable heated gloves. We first got a look at these gloves when we visited Milwaukee’s New Product Symposium back in May.

With OPE Reviews being based in Central Florida, it’s rare that we ever need gloves at all, much less, heated gloves. However, we have a few days each winter when we dip into the 30s and 40s. And, that means the rest of the country is probably dealing with temps in the zeros and teens. A good pair of insulated gloves is a must if you’re working in the outdoors, and better yet, a heated pair.

Milwaukee USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves Features

Milwaukee USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves ContentsThese USB Milwaukee heated gloves are powered by a REDLITHIUM battery pack in each glove. In the Low setting, each battery should deliver about 6 hours of runtime. Of course, higher heat settings will yield shorter runtimes. Each battery is removable from the glove and they can be charged with a USB Micro B cable. Included with the gloves are the gloves, 2 batteries, and a USB cable split into two USB Micro B connectors. Both batteries can be charged at the same time.

An LED controller on the outside of the glove, near the wrist, allow the user/wearer to select the heat setting. Each push of the button will rotate from Low to Medium to High and Off. In addition to multiple heat settings, the Milwaukee USB rechargeable heated gloves also feature two heating zones. One zone covers the back of the hands, and the other heats the fingers.

Swipe Smart and Stop Rips

It’s obvious that Milwaukee understands that today our gloves need to be multi-taskers, hence not just keeping our hands warm. Built into each glove’s index finger is SmartSwipe allowing the user to use touch screen devices without removing their gloves. In a day where we can’t seem to go five minutes without touching our smartphones, this can be a great feature.

Okay, so they keep our hands warm and we can use our phones, but what about getting real work done? The exterior working portions of the Milwaukee heated gloves are made with Gridiron Ripstop Polyester which is three-times more durable and 25% lighter than 12 oz. cotton duck. So you get the durability without the bulkiness. Furthermore, the leather palms and fingers aid in movement and dexterity.

But wait, there’s more! An extended cuff will help keep the snow out, and you won’t feel that cold breeze when your jacket sleeves ride up your arm a bit. Lastly, a built-in terry cloth sweat wipe will keep those drips from your brow while keeping the boss happy, working hard.

Our Thoughts

What’s not to like about staying warm when it’s freezing outside?! We like the fact that these are meant to truly be work gloves, and we like the additional features built in as well. The Milwaukee USB rechargeable heated gloves are going to run you about $180, so they’re not cheap. At the same time, they should be able to give you years of use. Another big bonus is that the gloves can be charged with typical USB chargers that you probably already have. This means, you’re not stuck out on the jobsite with the only charger at home. We haven’t gotten these gloves in-house yet, but we hope to do so very soon. It’s COLD, so try to stay warm!
