Keeping my mitts toasty
Looking forward to some cooler temp riding with these and the jacket that it pairs to.
There is just no need to freeze anymore.

Some issues with fitment but the technology is amazing
I bought these liners with the idea of fitting them under a pair of Joe Rocket insulated cold weather riding gloves that I've had for almost 8 years. My thought was that the Rocket gloves were older and the insulation was compressed so I may be able to pull the paring off comfortably, and I was right...kind of. First off I am a size medium glove in everything I own but I went with an XS liner as I was swimming in the mediums and the smalls still had a bit of extra material at the top of the fingers. Powerlet provides a sizing chart on the back of the package and the XS was true to fit and I probably have average size hands or maybe a bit smaller for a 5'8' guy. As all heated gloves that I have tried on are bulky and a bit "numb" feeling so is the same for my gloves with the liners in. The only real problem area is the webbing between my thumb and pointer finger which is taught and a little uncomfortable while riding so I would make sure that you try these on under the gloves that you are wearing before you purchase...as I should have. That being said the Powerlet heating technology is amazing. I have only had the gloves out on 40 Degree F day so far but only needed to use level 2 of the 5 level heating system to stay warm. Can't wait to try them in colder conditions.

first of all it took two days for the glove liners to arrive which was impressive in itself. just got these in yesterday and use them this morning. It was 29 degrees out this morning and i have an hour commute to work. I set them on five and quickly had to turn them down to three as it was starting to burn it got so hot. After setting to three it was very comfortable and made riding in the cold weather easy. i have had a few heated gloves and so far these are the best and at a great cost.

Powerlet glove liners extend the riding season!
This spring I purchased a powerlet jacket liner, which has be a great addition to my gear. My hands were still cold, even with grip heaters and warm gloves, so this fall I purchased the powerlet glove liner. They plug easily into the powerlet jacket and operate off the same two knob remote control as the jacket (red for the jacket, yellow for the gloves). Riding in Michigan, the ability to ride in cold weather is a nice option - these liners work amazingly well. The material does catch on velcro, so be careful where you put them.

great alternative to heated grips
It is true that it take some planning to get them on with all the wiring , but apart from that this inner liner is a great product.
I needed something for the cold days of central otago in New Zealand and I didn't wanted to fit heated grips on my bike, so this gloves are the perfect alternative to avoid heated grips.
Gloves heat pretty quick and the mid set is enough to keep my hands warm in very cold conditions, the area close to my wrists gets a bit to hot if I go over the mid setting.
I'm very happy with the gloves and even happier with revzilla service, can't believe I got them delivered in NZ in 5 days!!!

Saved From Frostbite
I am a daily commuter and needed something to keep my fingers warm through the winter. It does not snow or Ice where i live so I can ride year round, but it does get cold and my fingers would feel like I had vice grips clamped on the ends by the time I would get to work, which is 40 minute commute. If you have ridden in freezing temps for that long without the right gear, 40 minutes is torture.
I could not find a pair of winter gloves that would save me from this pain, so I i researched heated gloves and glove liners. I went with these liners and have not regretted it one bit. they have kept my hands very comfortable even in 30 degree weather.
The temperature control is simple and works 5 different settings make a big difference. I typically keep them in the middle setting of 3. The only downside is there is a hot spot on the back of the hand if you crank them to 5. Other than that the warmth is evenly distributed throughout these liners.
They fit nicely under all my different gloves. however, these would not fit well under gloves that are already tight.
If you are looking for more warmth on your hands, I highly recommend you consider these.

Was skeptical since there were a few reviews saying that these were cheap and didnt work.
They work great! I tend to run them on level 3. 4 and 5 do seem to get rather warm. Took it upon myself to sew in a thin patch of cloth inside to keep it from burning the top of my hands on the higher levels. Keeps your fingers nice and toasty.

Heat up very quickly, somewhat cumbersome with the wiring but not a bother. Hope to get jacket to plug gloves into, only gripe is weather cap for the plug harness is useless, gloves are great.
