Milwaukee wants you to have warm hands at winter jobsites
By Alyssa Dalton
December 2, 2013 – Milwaukee Electric Tool has expanded its line of M12 heated gear with its heated hand warmers, designed for various winter jobsite and lifestyle applications where gloves can be cumbersome or get in the way, it explains.
Powered by M12 RedLithium batteries, the hand warmers feature two carbon fiber heating elements to heat hands for up to six hours—on high, medium, or low heat—through a button located inside the external pocket. The hand warmers feature a dual-cuff form with windproof seal and thermal knit fleece inner lining to help increase heat retention, while boasting to be water and wind resistant. For added convenience, an adjustable strap secures the unit around the user’s waist, and an external pocket provides a spot to carry personal items such as keys or a cell phone. The units are available in black (2322, pictured right) and Realtree Xtra Camouflage (2321).
