Typically, lithium-ion batteries are used to power heated jackets, heated vests, heated hoodies, and heated coats. Compared with lithium-polymer batteries, lithium-ion batteries have a higher energy density to heat up more heating elements at the same time. And this type of battery can deliver more consistent power to retain the heat for long periods. Also, lithium-ion batteries are stronger and are not easily out of shape, which makes them have a long lifespan.

On the other side, lithium-polymer batteries have a slightly lower energy density, which is normally used to power heated gloves and heated socks. So, it is usually lighter than lithium-ion batteries to provide a better user experience.

Both batteries are great options to power heated apparel. No matter what kind of lithium batteries you choose, please remember to follow the battery using instructions.
