Product Description

Outback Battery Heated Socks for cold conditions. The heating element warms feet in cold conditions. The temperature reaches 39 degrees Celsius. Unisex. 20% wool, 80% acrylic. Hand washable. Washing Guidelines - The socks should be hand washed only, using warm water and some washing powder. It's important that any excess water is squeezed out and that the products are not twisted. Allow to dry naturally but no tumble drying. The Outback socks take 1 x LR20 / D size battery per sock. They battery is easy to insert into the battery pouch and then button close. The battery terminal sits under the connector causing the toe area of the sock to warm up to 39 degrees C. They socks take up to 10 minutes to reach 39 degrees C which is a couple of degrees warmer than body temperature. The warmth is concentrated to the toe area of the sock where the warmth is most needed. The warmth is also quite mild, not blazing hot. It wouldn't be healthy or comfortable to have a temperature that made your feet sweat. Not suitable for diabetics.

I read all the reviews on here and was unsure about getting a pair, but thought it would be a good idea to atleast try them.

I've been very careful with them having read they can be easy to break, but they seem pretty sturdy. My job involves spending a lot time outside and my feet can get painful from the cold, and these socks really take the edge off. The heating element is just under the toes, and although its not like having a warm fire to put your feet against you can feel warmth. Used them four times in the last couple of weeks with batteries still going strong.

Really do recommend them

As someone from Africa I have never got used to just how cold my feet get so I was pleasantly surprised at just how quickly these heated up and how wonderful it was to have warm feet while sitting at my desk.

Even if, for the greater glory, you ignore the uncomfortable size of the battery... they just don't work. there's a single wire heating somewhere beneath the tip of your toes.
No difference from a good pair of thick socks. Except the triple price.

I bought these heated socks but i amnot happy with them at all. They take ages to heat and when they do , they are not hot. I would not recommend these to any one in fact i think they are a waste of money.

This is my first ever feedback left on Amazon and i have been using it regularly for the last 4 years. I feel quite strongly that somebody can sell an item that does not work or come close to doing what it's designed to do. These socks are a complete waste of time. The design is poor, the top doesn't stay connected to the battery. I even 'tested' the socks by keeping the connection to the battery by hand, the socks do not get any heat that you can feel with your toes or hand. If you want to waste the best part of £20 then go for it.

I held off writing the review until i'd been able to try these socks whilst working out in the icy weather. I lose feeling in my right foot when too cold, i thought these might help. They do, but only cos they are nice thick socks. When wearing these (over a pair of socks) with the battery in, inside workboots, i cant tell if they are heating or not. It doesn't help that the battery size is expensive (Type D-- 8 quid a pair) and takes 20 hours to charge. and i cant put them in the washer. i'm not hand washing them, no way.
I did try them in bed, with the battery in, no other socks on. Yes, i could feel the element heating, but it was uncomfortable, like a mild burning sensation, which is too much under my toes. So no good then, either.

If you want thick socks, these are excellent. I'm road testing some heated insoles for my work boots instead, they use AA batterys.

Had the picture of the socks been shown out of the packet I may not have purchased them. I bought them for my father who always has cold feet, he had a stroke a few years ago and walks with a limp. I totally accept it was my fault for not knowing what the size of the batteries would be. I incorrectly assumed they would be the coin size but oh no they are actually very large and in my opinion too heavy to put into socks. My family howled with laughter when he opened his pressie and the batteries I purchased. There were several jokes about walking with weights on his legs etc etc. Yes indeed the heated socks work but don't think my father will wear them outside.
