For the outside use a damp cloth as well as a mild soap like Marseille soap.

To deodorize the interior, you can use non-allergenic essential oils for skin contact, or a deodorant/disinfectant spray like those used for shoes.

What is the battery life?

Lithium being a fragile material and reacting to various factors (outside temperature, climate, respect of the refill cycles, etc...), the observed autonomy is of 2h (for the highest intensity) and up to 6h (for the lowest intensity).


RACER TIPS:
Please note that using the boost mode of your gloves, you will significantly reduces their battery life.

How long will it take to charge batteries?

Your charger has a LED that switches from red (empty batteries) to green (batteries charged >80%).

RACER TIPS: In order to get a 100% recharge of your batteries, we invite you to leave them in charge for 4/5 hours, even if the LED turns green. By unplugging your batteries before, the battery life will not be complete.

How do I preserve my batteries?

We recommend you to ideally recharge your batteries every 2/3 months. When you are preparing to store your heating gloves for a long period of time (>2 weeks), it is important to:

1 - Set your batteries to a charge level between 30 and 50%. This level is reached when the LED flashes green.

2 - Store your batteries in a place not subject to high temperatures (<25°C). The lower the room temperature is, better the storage/wintering conditions will be.

3 - To carry out a cycle of use: Charge (100%) / Discharge (at the 30/50% threshold)

RACER TIPS: To reduce the risk of runaway, degassing and ignition, you can store your batteries in a metal box or PVC.

For some heating gloves, you can connect two batteries in the same glove which doubles the battery life. You will thus have up to 10 hours of autonomy using the lowest intensity.
