It's getting cold and during outdoor activities some people like to have heatable clothing. There are many models with rechargeable battery packs. The lithium cells and lithium batteries are often interchangeable so that you don't have to suddenly freeze when the performance drops.
If you are thinking about buying heatable clothing, you are well advised to make sure that the lithium ion batteries also meet all regulations. The lithium ion battery must:
1. be manufactured under a well-defined quality management system (e.g. ISO 9001 manufacturing would be sufficient); and
2. the lithium ion battery must have passed the UN test series according to 38.3.
