In the realm of heated clothing, batteries are the unsung heroes that keep you warm and comfortable. Whether you're venturing into the great outdoors or simply enduring a chilly commute, understanding the ins and outs of batteries and charging can make all the difference. This comprehensive guide will cover everything you need to know about batteries and charging for your heated vests and jackets.

Types of Batteries

Heated vests and jackets typically use lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, known for their high energy density, long lifespan, and lightweight design. Here’s a closer look at the two main types of batteries used in Jackoli™ heated clothing:

    • Medium heat (50ºC): Up to 2 hours
    • High heat (55ºC): Up to 1.5 hours
  • Charging Time: Approximately 3.5 hours
  • Weight: 127 grams

2. 10,000mAh Batteries:

  • Capacity: 10,000 milliampere-hours (mAh)

Charging Your Battery

Proper charging practices are crucial for maintaining the longevity and performance of your battery. Here are some essential tips:

1. Use the Right Charger:

Always use the charger that comes with your heated vest or jacket. For Jackoli™ products, this is typically a 2.4 Amp charger. Using an incompatible charger can affect the battery’s performance and lifespan.

2. Follow Charging Instructions:

5,000mAh Battery: Takes approximately 3.5 hours to charge.
10,000mAh Battery: Takes about 6.5 hours to charge.
Ensure that the battery is fully charged before use to maximize runtime.

3. Charging from Different Outlets:

You can charge your battery from various outlets, including:

  • Standard Wall Outlets: Use the provided charger.
  • 12V Car Outlets: With a PowerMini 4.8Amp USB car charger.
  • USB Outlets: If your vehicle has a USB outlet with 5V power, it can charge the battery.

4. Safety First:

  • Avoid overcharging the battery by unplugging it once it’s fully charged.
  • Keep the battery away from extreme temperatures and moisture.
  • Regularly inspect the battery and charger for any signs of damage.

Battery Care and Maintenance

To ensure your battery remains in optimal condition, follow these care and maintenance tips:

1. Regular Charging:

Even if you’re not using your heated vest or jacket regularly, charge the battery every few months to maintain its capacity.

2. Storage:

Store the battery in a cool, dry place. Avoid leaving it in your vehicle or any other place where it might be exposed to extreme temperatures.

3. Handling:

  • Handle the battery with care. Avoid dropping it or subjecting it to physical shocks.
  • Keep the battery contacts clean and free from dust and debris.

4. Troubleshooting:

If you encounter issues with your battery not charging, try using a different USB charger, such as a phone charger, to see if the issue lies with the charger rather than the battery. If the problem persists, contact customer support for further assistance.

Benefits of Upgrading to a 10,000mAh Battery

If you find yourself needing longer runtimes or more consistent heat, upgrading to a 10,000mAh battery might be worth considering. The benefits include:

  • Extended Runtime: Up to 8 hours on the lowest heat setting, making it ideal for long outdoor activities.
  • Less Frequent Charging: More capacity means you won’t need to charge the battery as often.
  • Better Performance in Cold Conditions: Higher capacity batteries tend to perform better in colder temperatures.


Understanding the batteries and charging processes for your heated vests and jackets ensures you get the most out of your heated clothing. By following proper charging practices, maintaining your battery, and choosing the right capacity for your needs, you can enjoy consistent warmth and comfort all winter long. Whether you stick with the 5,000mAh battery or upgrade to the 10,000mAh version, staying warm has never been this easy and efficient.

Stay warm, stay charged, and enjoy the benefits of heated clothing!
