The most important question when shopping for a heated vest is to decide if you need a portable rechargeable battery-powered vest or a hard-wired heated vest for use on a motorcycle? Most customers are looking for portable battery-powered heated vests because they are great to use anywhere to stay warm and are great for layering, while the hard-wired heated vests are designed for use when riding a motorcycle, The battery-powered vests typically use rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries whereas moto-inspired vests connect directly to a motorcycle, ATV/UTV, or snowmobile battery for power.
