Gerbing's Hybrid Heated Gloves 12V but Li-ion 7.2V Battery?
I have ordered Li-ion that recommended to be used with Gerbing's Hybrid Heated Gloves. I thought the battery should be 12V not 7.2V. Does it work? Could you help? Also same question with the other customer. Do you sell charger for these batteries?
Gerbing manufactures two different product lines: Gerbing's Heated Clothing (powersports gear), and Coreheat (outdoor gear), both of which offer battery packs. The outdoor gear, rated for 7.2V DC, uses nanowire heating elements and is great for general outdoor use like hunting or bicycling. The powersports gear is rated for 12V DC so that it can be used interchangeably with a vehicle's built-in power or Gerbing 12V battery packs. Unlike the outdoor gear, powersports gear uses microwire heating elements, which are better suited to windy conditions you get with a motorcycle, ATV, or snowmobile.
I'm 90+ percent certain you need the 12V pack. First of all, your Hybrid gloves are part of the powersports gear product line so they're rated and optimized for 12V. Secondly, if memory serves the Coreheat 7.2V plug and receptacle is smaller than the 12V ones so that if you had outdoor gear, you couldn't inadvertently overload the nanowire heating elements with a 12V battery pack. To find out for certain, contact Gerbing customer service at 800-646-5916.
Also, I don't believe RevZilla sells the either the charger or battery kits. They're available for sale on the Gerbing web site, however: http://gerbing.com/Products/Gloves/hybridGlove.php
