 Electric Coats FAQs

HOW LONG DO ELECTRIC COATS LAST?

While this answer depends on the individual usage of each jacket we stand behind each and all of our products at Gobi Heat. The warranty on your electric coat covers any defect from material and workmanship for 1 year. Proper care of the jacket shell and battery will make your battery-powered jacket last for years to come. The battery in each jacket is limited by its chemistry, as are all batteries, to roughly 500 charge/discharge cycles depending on frequency of use. So while your electric coat may need a new battery in a few years with proper care you will be enjoying it's electric warmth for many winters!

HOW DO ELECTRIC COATS WORK?

We cover this in-depth on our "How Does Heated Clothing Work Anyway?" blog but here's the TL;DR. We use a conductive thread that carries current in the same manner as wires but without the bulk. These flexible circuits are sewn together without compromising the aesthetic and comfort of the electric coat. The conductive thread is connected to the conveniently located battery which provided up to 10 hours of heat at three output settings.
