“At Milwaukee we understand that trade professionals are expected to work in some very tough conditions, cold weather being one of the most inclement. This is why we’ve been leading the industry in heated job site work gear ever since the introduction of our M12™ Heated Gear in 2010, and we’re now introducing our first ever heated accessory,” said Kaue Cavalcante, Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “Our new USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves are a first for the industry, offering high-performance in trade applications and providing an improved experience when compared to the heated glove offerings used in other industries as well.”
Powered by REDLITHIUM USB, these gloves feature three heat settings (Low, Medium, High) and fully heat up in 2.5 minutes. Users will experience up to six hours of continuous run-time on low, with heat extending to the fingers and back of the hands (run-time is three hours on medium and 1.5 hours on high). Each battery has 2X more capacity than three AAA Alkaline batteries and can be charged over 2,000 times, eliminating the need for disposable batteries with over 2,000 charges for longer life. The Milwaukee REDLITHIUM USB Battery is covered by a two-year warranty.
These USB Rechargeable Heated Gloves are constructed with GRIDIRON™ Ripstop Polyester, making them durable against tearing and abrasion. This lightweight polyester also makes them lighter for maximum mobility, as well as wind and water resistant. For extra dexterity and durability, the palms and fingers are 100% leather. An extended cuff also works to keep debris, water, and snow out of the glove and pulls over jacket sleeves.
These new gloves also include SMARTSWIPE™ on the index fingers which permits the use of touch screen devices without removing the gloves. They are available in sizes Medium, Large and XL and the kit includes: REDLITHIUM USB Heated Gloves, two REDLITHIUM USB Battery Packs, two Controller/Chargers, Heavy Duty Charging Cord and Wall Plug
