Warm but not so 'toasty' & expensive to run!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These socks get through batteries very quickly so it's worth getting rechargable ones. I always seem to have cold feet & work in a refridgerated environment so I thought these would help as layers of thermal socks were not making any difference to my numb with cold feet. They do give off a reasonable heat on the highest setting (there are 2 settings, the lowest is a waste of time as makes little difference), but the wires that carry the heat run along the side of your foot which is no good to me. I try to wear them twisted to get the wire under my feet but they tend to right themselves while wearing. Also the battery pack is fairly bulky. It is easily hidden under my baggy work trousers but I can imagine that it would stick out if I wore it with normal fitting jeans. All in all they are okay & my feet are warmer than before but you need to only put them on in bursts to reserve battery power if you want heat for any length of time. Having said that they have caused much amusement amongst my work collegues!
