If you’re working on your computer in the cold, you might wish you could type with boxing gloves on.  Computers are becoming commonplace on production floors and in utility vans, and a lot of people with cold hands have to routinely remove their hand gear to type, or to hit the tiny buttons on other tools.

Unless you’re running your laptop on battery power, these USB-heated convertible gloves could help out.  Even the non-powered version of these gloves might work pretty well, and you wouldn’t run as much risk of getting your hands sweaty before you go out into the real cold.  Or you could opt for a heated keyboard.

What’s the best way to keep from freezing your fingers off when you’re doing fine manipulation like typing?  Let us know in comments.

    i use a pair of neoprenes when I am outside, I can use my phone with them no problem, I imagine I could type with them on as well if needed.

    I’ve still got a pair of elkskin gloves I cut the fingertips off of 26 years ago when I was working in Wyoming. People would ask me if my hands got cold and I said all I had to do was make a fist. They were always having to take their gloves off to do things. Smokers usually have a lot worse problem with cold fingers, and a lot of people do when they get older anyway. I can only get an oversized glove on my right hand, which brings me to what I think is a more interesting use for this product: therapeutic use, for people with hand problems. When I get up in the morning it takes me a while to get my hand usable, and heat helps. Maybe if I get something like this I’ll start taking piano lessons again.

    USB-powered-everything is not the answer.

    If you need warm fingers at a fixed location, there is a better, more-direct solution:
