Heated clothing batteries allow you to take all of the great features of your heated motorcycle gear and jackets with you when you put the kickstand down. The portability factor afforded by batteries for heated clothing is huge. With battery powered heated gear, you eliminate the need to hook directly to your motorcycle. This gives you the freedom to make the most of your gear even if you have no intentions of riding the motorcycle. They also work great for people who do not want to draw the electricity from their motorcycle or simply want to remain unencumbered by any wires.
