Battery Powered Warming Poncho

at 4:57 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks



 If you hate cold days and want to have some active heating to keep you warm this Battery Powered Warming Poncho might be just the project for you. Berto uses a 12 volt battery in a bag that runs the poncho. Being from Winnipeg and knowing lots of avid snowmobilers I have actually seen lots of warming gloves and vests for riding all day in the cold but a warming poncho is a great idea for the being out and about on the cold days. If this is a project you are going to take on be very careful since with that much battery power it would be very easy to get seriously burn if there was a short circuit due to some faulty wiring.

Thanks for sending in your project Berto.
