Thanks for the OR in answer of the call. Very detailed and thorough review, good job. (And if you change that sentence to "me" it is fine.)
Your edits are below. Once corrected you may place it at:
See you down the trail,
***Gerbing Heated Sock Liner
EDIT: the title needs the name of the item “Gerbing 7v Sock Liner”
***The bottom section contains the microwiring that conducts heat
EDIT/edit: they call their combination of wire and insulation “microwire” and it may be good to mention/explain it, but “microwiring” is not a word and should be spelled with a hyphen (micro-wiring) or with a space (micro wiring).
***Starting out cold means It'll be hard to get the feet warm
I have no information on life expectancy of the batteries or how many recharges they'll take, but when they need to be replaced they are available directly from Gerbing and other retailers. However, to date there has been no noticeable degradation in the batteries' performance or charge time.
***being very careful not to roughly handle the red foot section containing the microwires.
Edit: containing the “microwire system”
***I squeeze out the excess water and hang them to dry in the sun. Even if not washed, hanging the socks (or any clothing, for that matter) outside in the sun helps to freshen them up, and the UV radiation (especially at the high altitude where I live) will eliminate some microbes from the fabric.
Comment: that same UV is a killer to synthetic materials too.
***The socks do seem to wick some moisture, but I can't substantiate Gerbing's claim that they also insulate;
Comment: I agree with you, that part made me laugh. R-0.2… ;-)
