Completing my heated winter kit of Keis X25 jacket and X2i trousers, these gloves are plugged into the sleeves of my jacket, though can be used with their own, supplied lead, or with a battery when away from the bike. It’s worth noting that, unlike the X900 Dual Power gloves, the cuffs on these will not carry a battery, so you’ll have to keep one in your pocket, connected by a lead if you want remote power.
The gloves each have their own controller, with a large, easy-to-press rubber button, which glows green for low, orange for medium and red for full power. At 12v, I found the pair draws 0.6A, 0.8A and 1.1A for each mode respectively. To avoid taking my hand off the throttle, I adjust the left glove by pressing the button on the underside of the bike’s mirror.
