How do electric socks work? There are battery powered and plug-in kind
Electric socks work much the same as electric blankets on a smaller scale. The batter of the electric sock is attached to heating element wires. The wires of good electric socks are contained on channels so the wires cannot be felt by the wearer.
Plug in heated socks are for home use. They conveniently plug into a wall outlet, allowing you to warm yourself without heating up the whole house.
Tips for using Electric Socks
Each electric sock operates on its own battery. Most electric socks use a "D" size batter, which is a large battery. Be aware of the size and weight of each of the pouches that contain the battery. Heavy boots are probably the best way to go, as the battery pouch can be contained with little problem or added bulk. If you wear electric socks and use regular shoes and pants, you may have a bulge. The electric socks are built to hold up, including the battery pouch. The electric socks may take a while to get used to.
Also, some electric socks warm the whole foot, while others warm only the toes. Be sure to get exactly the electric socks you want.
The batteries in electric socks normally last anywhere from three to eight hours. But because battery life is iffy, you should always carry extra batteries if you plan on being out for a long time.
Having your feet warmed by electric socks is fine, but be sure and take care of the rest of your body. Electric socks should not be the sole source of warmth or you will be in danger. Dress accordingly!
