Kick Old Man Winter In The Teeth With A HART Heated Blanket
As I’m writing, the weather outside is fairly pleasant, but yet another cold front is barrelling through overnight. It seems like a great time to let you know about the HART 20V cordless heated blanket. If I can wrestle it away from my wife long enough, that is.
Using the HART 20V Cordless Heated Blanket
- 3 heat settings
- Up to 6 hours of runtime
- Wind and water resistant
- Washer and dryer safe
- Runs on any HART 20V battery
Electric blankets have been around for decades, but the idea of powering one with a battery is a much newer idea. HART starts with 54 x 60 inches of polyester material for both the inner and outer sections.
The outer shell is a slicker weave and gives the blanket its wind and water resistance.
The inner shell is a fleece that provides insulation and a comfortable feel.
Active heating comes from any HART 20V battery combined with carbon fiber heating elements running through the blanket. A zipper pouch in the upper corner houses the battery and power source adapter. The adapter also includes a USB port if you’d like to charge your phone using the same battery. Just be aware that it will affect your overall runtime.
There are three heat levels to choose from. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds to turn the blanket on and then press it briefly to cycle through the modes. Press and hold again to turn it off. When we’re using it inside, we kick the heat up to high for the initial warmth and then turn it off until the occupant gets chilly. Outside, we do the same thing, but turn it down to medium or low depending on how cold it is.
Don’t be afraid to take it outside. It’s washer and dryer safe, so just toss it in with your other polyesters if it gets a little dirty or picks up the smoke smell from your campfire.
