    mine broke I recently moved and with the move, I left my front load washer behind. New place has a top load, and I washed the jacket.... now it doesnt work I had washed it dozens of times in my old washer/dryer setup over the years and no problems. Oh well, crap happens. I am guessing something inside got twisted or torn by the twisting action the top load has that the front loads dont do.

      I thought you were not supposed to wash them? I wont buy one until they do two things, 1) Make them 12 volt, 18v battery too bulky,
      2) Make a hoody that is washer/dryer safe, no different than an electric blanket!

        Here's the stupid part, the voltage output from the adapter is 12v, so the jackets are fully compatible with 12/18v batteries, they just need to sell the adapter.... grrrrr

          that doesn't surprise me, aeg has the 12 volt. What is surprising is both adapters for usb charging are not for sale?!!

                The m12/18 heated wear all use the same heating system. They both use either battery, as the 12V battery adapter puts out 12v. The 18v adapter also reduces the output to 12v. The M12 sweatshirt I got even has in the paperwork stating that you can use either 12 or 18v batteries to power the hoodie. Now, if only Ridgid sold the adapter separate...

                  I see DeWalt has a jacket with removable sleeves turning it into a heated vest. Uses either 12v or 20v batteries. Three temperature settings and four heating zones.

                    Can anyone tell me the part number of the portable power source that has the USB AND the barrel outlet to power the heated jacket? I got a dewalt heated jacket for christmas but only have ridgid cordless tools, so that's all I have for batteries. I searched but the only portable power sources I can find only have the usb output... :-(

                      I don't know about getting the battery adapter alone but the whole kit (jacket+battery+charger) is going for crazy prices on eBay.
                      I have no connection or knowledge of who is selling these just came across the ad in a google search for ridgid heated jackets.

                      It would be a cold day in he!! before I would pay this persons' asking price of $399.99 !

                        What about heated gloves, it could be heavy to wear a 18V battery binded to each palm to keep the fingers warm?

                        If the gloves could connect to a cable on the end of the sleeve that would work with no additional bulk. Use a magnetic coupler on the glove and have a short cable that extends out form the sleeve cuff. That way if you have to pull the glove off quick or the cable gets snagged on something it just breaks loose with no damage to the cable or the person. Phones have magnetic coupled charging cables now, and you can buy adapters for existing phones too. Their are reversible so you don't have to struggle with aligning the cable with an asymmetrical port on the phone.

                          While I respect your interest in coats, and gloves, I'd prefer more diverse tools for my Ridgid batteries.

                            That's funny as my lady friend just said something similar.
