When it comes to heated jackets, people always wonder how they work and why they need batteries to generate warmth. In this comprehensive guide, you can take a close look at heated jackets and power banks to find the answer.
Functionality of heated jackets
The primary function of heated jackets is to provide warmth and comfort during cold days. Typically, heated jackets depend on the heating system (It refers to heating elements, heating levels, and power bank) to work. Firstly, plug the cable inside the apparel pocket into the battery port. And the next step is to press the power button on the apparel. After several seconds, the battery can transform the electric energy into heat across the core body. If wearers feel too hot or too cold, they can adjust the heating level to enjoy the perfect warmth.
Also, most heated jackets are crafted with water-resistant material to withstand moisture, which can prevent wearers from elements. So, when you engage in outdoor activities, you don’t worry that the unpredictable weather will deprive a lot of fun.
Reasons and benefits of using a power bank with heated jackets
Safety. Heated jackets use portable batteries to generate heat. Maybe someone thinks that why it cannot use a storage battery. But it’s not unrealistic and safe. The battery could increase the burden on the body if it’s placed inside the apparel. And the storage battery is easy to be compressed and bumped, which could pose some potential risks to users.
Portability. The power bank for heated jackets is rechargeable and can be used for several times. It ensures the battery can charge the apparel for long periods without the need to replace the battery frequently.

And the latter is usually with heated gloves or heated socks which are not equipped with large areas of heating elements.
When it comes to the battery voltage, 5V, 7.4V, and 12V are common. And with the development of technology, 7.4V and 12V gradually occupy the market because of the high power output which can power more heating elements at the same time. And consider the battery weight, the capacity ranges from 5000mAh to 10000mAh.
