Received a code for 50% off this vest. This beats the previous deal (which got majorly TD'd for some reason) by about $20. Doesn't appear to be a unique code, as I had someone else try it as well. Don't forget to clip the 5% coupon as well.

50% Off Code: YYBLYAVX Extended to 1/26/2020!

I use their neck/shoulder one (with massaging) and it's fantastic. Ordering one of these for myself because at $50 I can justify trying something new (gets cold in WI). I was able to convert some of my larger 2s lipos to this barrel connector for free batteries for my neck one, so I can just use those with this vest, too. If you have any older/saggy 2s lipos from drones or crawlers they'll work perfectly on this.

Details (copied and edited from Amazon - hard to read the one on the listing):
  • Adjustable Size - Unisex
  • 7,200mah 7.4v Rechargeable LiPo Battery
  • 6 Heating Panels & 5 Temperature Control
  • Built-in thermal protection module.
  • Support Hand/ Machine/ Dry wash.

Yep, that was my response, but then I realized I could get a cheap adapter and use my old 2s lipo batteries with it. Anything at 7.4v with the right connector will work.

Please, post the link of 2s lipo batteries and the power plug that you mentioned. I am interesting. Thanks

I have this heat vest for a few days and very happy. However, i am still trying to figure out how to wash it by using washing machine since It doesn't come with rubber cap for power input plug make me wonder.

It is washable because when the battery pack is not connected there is no circuit. Allow it to fully dry before you power it on (obviously), but if I needed to I would only hand wash and use something like this (print in TPU). My other heated things all say to only do this once a month at most, but I only submerge wash in the most dire of circumstances.

As for the lipos - any 2s lipo will work, as they're all 7.4v (unless HiV). If you wanted to buy a larger lipo you could pick them up anywhere - I'd get a used one for this, as you don't need something that won't sag (can get away with really low C ratings). The connector I just had laying around. I THINK it's a 2.5mm plug, but I need to verify with my calipers at home.

Alternatively, you could just use a step-down, encase/wrap it up nicely, and use any power source to power it as long as you're feeding the vest 7.4v. Tried sharing a link from BG, but it's blocked on here. Search for "LM2596 DC-DC Verstellbar Step Down-Schaltregler Power Supply Module" for the one I am going to try next. Soldering required.

This is a really nice vest got one as a Christmas gift. Spare batteries aren't the cheapest but my vest came with a 50% off coupon for a spare battery which makes it a no-brainer to get another one. At this price point thinking about picking one up for my wife as well (or should I say one for myself since my wife has claimed the one we got as a gift.

What's the battery life like?

I've successfully managed to overvolt my 12v Milwaukee heated jacket to 20v and it has been running fine. It draws 20v 1.5 or 30 freaking watts.

You have to use a pd power bank and a pd converter.
