Here are a series of short "How to" videos which show the functionality and ease-of-use built into the range of Keis heated garments and accessories.
If you wish to know how a Keis heated garment, battery pack, or power controller, operates, please scroll down to the most relevant video/s below.
A quick introduction to Keis heated clothing for motorcyclists and outdoor leisure activities.
How does Keis heated clothing work?
POWERING YOUR HEATED GARMENT:
Except for those described as "Leisure" products by name, all Keis heated garments are supplied with a motorcycle power lead.
This video shows how the motorcycle power lead is connected to your motorcycle battery.
Please Note: Avoid routing the power supply lead in such a ways as to make direct contact with hot surfaces, like your motorcycle engine and exhaust.
You can also power most of your Keis heated garments from a Keis portable battery pack.
These Keis 12V Portable Batteries are a great alternative to power your heated garment. You enjoy increased flexible (away from a vehicle) when powering a Keis heated vest, bodywarmers, insoles, socks, set of inner or outer gloves with a portable battery pack, but the high power of a Keis heated jacket or trouser (when on full power) will result in a very short battery capacity. As such we advise that a portable battery is not very practical for powering a heated jacket or trouser. This advise excludes the Keis Heated Leisure Puffer Jacket, which has been designed for great use with a Keis 12V Portable Battery.
In addition to the 2600mAh and 5200mAh battery packs, Keis has launched the new 2000mAh Glove Battery Packs for the G301, G601, and G701 Motorcycle Heated Gloves.
KEIS HEATED GLOVES:
There a tree types of heated gloves from Keis Apparel:
- heated Leisure Gloves, which come with a set of Glove Batteries and a battery charge;

- the Keis range of leather and textile Motorcycle Gloves. All EU PPE certified for high standards of safety and durability, and pack with special feathers designed for motorcyclists - like a scaphoid guard and visor wipe on the left index finger.

KEIS POWER CONTROLLERS:
Without a power controller, your Keis jacket, bodywarmer, vest, and trousers will default to the highest power setting when connected to a 12V power source. This produces the highest level of heat from the garment. Some Keis garments, like the motorcycle gloves and leisure products, feature integrated power controllers. Optional Keis Power Controllers are available for the Keis Heated Vest, Heated Bodywarmer, and the Keis Heated Trousers. A Keis Power Controller is recommended for best operation of the Keis Heated Jacket, as the default highest power setting (when used without a power controller) may be too warm for some situations.
Power Controllers are available in three variants:
- Keis Light-Duty Power Controller, which is an optional controller for low power garments, like the Heated Inner Gloves, Heated Socks, and Heated Insoles. These garments can be comfortably worn without using a Light Power Controller, but the option is yours.
- The standard Keis Power Controller is the most popular controller, and can be used on any Keis heated garment that does not already contain an integrated power controller.
- And the new-for-2021 Keis Bluetooth Power Controller. This offers the same feathers as the standard power controller, but can also be paired to a smartphone and operated via the Keis iControl App.
