Heated socks are a boon for the winter. Everyone wants warm feet in the cold months. Our checklist will help you to consider the most important criteria. The product recommendations below will also make your purchase easier. Have fun shopping!
- Heated socks have a rechargeable battery or batteries.
- A rechargeable battery is particularly practical and environmentally friendly.
- It makes sense to carry a second reserve battery with you during longer activities.
- Wearing comfort is important, as heated socks are mainly worn during work or outdoor activities.
- Batteries or battery are usually incorporated at the sock waistband, where they do not interfere.
- High-quality models not only offer comfortable-to-wear materials such as a cotton/elastane mix, but are also breathable and have quick-drying, abrasion-resistant or sweat-absorbing properties.
- Wool is also a recommended material – it not only warms comfortably, but also wicks moisture well, which is important when it gets warm in the shoe.
- Heated socks are available in all sizes and in a wide variety of designs for the whole family.
- Since everyone feels temperatures differently, socks should be individually adjustable in their heat output. Good models offer a choice of 3 or even 4 temperature settings.
- The heating range should be between 40° C and approx. 50° C.
- Depending on the model, the heating areas can be located on the toes, in the heel area, or even in the ankle area.
- The heat output should last sufficiently long until the socks start to cool down again. A heating time of at least 10 hours should be it – depending also on the duration of the activities to which you want to wear the socks.
- The higher the heat level is set, the shorter the heat output lasts. Conversely, the socks will stay warm longer at a lower heat level.
- Some models are even advertised as lasting up to 18 hours of heat.
- The manufacturer’s care instructions should always be followed.
- Usually, only hand washing is recommended.
- However, you can also find models that are suitable for machine cleaning, despite the technology. Here, it will usually be necessary to remove the batteries first and wash the socks in a laundry net.
- The battery and heating elements are connected by a thin wire – this should be as flat as possible and appropriately thickly padded to avoid skin contact.
- Many models have safety-related features such as flame-retardant safety cotton or overcharge and overcurrent protection.
