I just recently bought a pair of Thermologic heated gloves on ebay for $78 shipped. They use a rechargeable l-ion battery and have 3 heat settings. I have tried them and they work, the gloves are wind proof and have grippy fingers and palms. But I have yet to use them in a cold situation, the 2 flights since buying them were too short to turn them on. The only issue I can see already is that the power button is flat and almost impossible to push with the gloves on. If flying, I would have to push it against the base tube. I'm sure the flying season is over but I will use them for snowboarding and flying next season.
Staring at it won't fix it. Beer won't either but sometimes the can is useful.

Don't buy the Hestra heated gloves- which the same glove is also branded in various other names. Not only are they $400, they are junk. I bought a pair from Bent Gate- wore them 3 or 4 times skiing and the left one conked out. Bent Gate sent me to Hestra, which is in Golden- went through 2 more pair- one of the pair quit working pretty quick. Ended up getting 2 pair of high end Hestra's with the store credit- a pair of gloves and a pair of mittens- and I use a wicking liner and buy the heat warmers in bulk at Costco and usually keep the tingling barfys at bay.

Its that time of year again, Blazewear came out with a newish line.

http://www.blazewearusa.com/gt6-perform ... ted-glove/

The Blazewear GT6 Performance Heated Glove takes heated gloves to the next level. It's designed specifically for people who want a stylish, performance glove with additional heating capacity. A superb heated glove for skiing, para motoring, hang gliding and other winter sports to provide you with comfort on those really cold days.

Water resistant, breathable and wind resistant, the GT6 gloves have leather palms for strength and grip and a soft synthetic fur interior with a really soft feel for the hands.

I have the liners and wear a thin leather wind proof glove, so far that has worked but these (above) may work better. What I like about Blazewear is that they heat the thumb too.

If you have too much money and don't know what to do with it you could try these.
