Heated jackets aren’t anything revolutionary, they’ve been done before, but this is the first time we have a heated jacket that can be charged through a USB port. The Electro Amp jacket was designed by a former Intel engineer and uses carbon-fiber strands for its in-jacket heating elements instead of metal wire, which tough yet not restricting. With a battery that lasts 5 hours on the lowest heat setting, you can be sure that it can keep you warm enough until your next recharge. And since it recharges through a USB port, you can experience the convenience of USB ports wherever you are – there’s no need for universal adaptors if you’re in a strange cold country, not to mention you can also keep yourself warm while using the computer. These jackets don’t come cheap though – costing up to $1,200 each, you’ll probably think twice before buying one. If you’re interested, head over to the Columbia website.
