How Much are Heated Jackets?

23 Mar 2023

“Are heated jackets expensive?”

“Well, I’m not sure, but I think it costs more than a traditional jacket.”

With constantly developing, heated jackets come with functional performance and various styles to open up a massive market. It’s one kind of fantastic outerwear built with an adjustable heating system to keep the body warm. That’s why it gets the top position in the cold-weather gear list.

 Heated Jacket

People like the quick and lost-lasting warmth powered by a heated jacket. So, the heating elements and battery are what the users are always concerned about. Also, the price is one of the main considerations because it involves the product value, product comparison, budget, etc,. Since we have often discussed the heating system, today we’ll focus on the price of a heated jacket.

Factors affecting the price of heated jackets

Heated jackets differ in price because of various factors. Here we conclude as following:

Price of heated jacket

Brand. Simply say, different brands have different targeted audience. Some focus on the high-end market, some stay on the mid-range market while others start with the low-end market. If one brand defines its products mainly serve upper-class people, the price is at a high level. Instead, the product price is somewhat affordable in the low-end market.

Heating technology. It’s a core value for a heated jacket. Not all heated jackets use the same heating technology. As we can find, most heated apparel manufacturers use carbon fiber or graphene heating technology to maintain product performance ahead of other competitors. On the other side, some manufacturers targeting the low-end market are more likely to use low-cost technology, like milk fiber.

Heated Zones

Heating zones. Heating zones are somewhere covered with heating elements to provide warmth. The number of heating zones is different based on the jacket design, heating system, and battery. For example, some heated jackets with 7.4V batteries could use 5-6 heating elements while the 5V battery only could support 3-4 heating areas. That’s to say, the former costs more than the latter.

Fabric. Sometimes we can guess the price from the used fabric. High-quality materials always are soft, skin-friendly, comfortable, durable, etc,. Normally, heated jackets made from water-proof fabric and soft thermal insulation are more expensive.

Fabric

Design. The design and style of heated jackets also can affect the price. For example, the long style is always more expensive than the normal style. And the price of the heated jacket with a detachable hood is higher.
