My back says OH YEAH! – USB Heated Warm Gloves for Men - Color Assorted (Pair) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
I bought these to heat my lower back, which is always sore due to a bad lift ~10 years ago.
The pads work nicely on their own but I was worried about damaging them, so I've just folded the gloves and place them inside my belt.
Cons:
The wool's a bit crappy, feels like its mixed with other fibres. I'm from New Zealand so we have excellent wool products.
I'd have preferred a grey power cable rather than ipod-white. Its not subtle.
Other:
I've also got a portable USB power source - a box with some AA batteries and a USB port. So in theory I could use these gloves without a laptop or computer.
I also have a ciggy lighter/USB power source, so with an extension cable I could even run this in the car.
Some people have said the hot pad should go against your palm... I would be worried about flexing breaking the conductors.
Bottomline:
Hot hands, warm back, good enough.
