Heated sleeping bag
The new heated sleeping bag is a third step in the designer s evolution. With a guarantee to sleep comfortably without all the fuss! It promises to be a world s first hybrid sleeping bag and the temperature control is unlike any bag before it. However, it has some quirks that need explaining.
Unlike conventional sleeping bags, your new heated sleeping bag will have two compartments. One compartment contains a heater that will warm you up while keeping you warm at the same time. The second compartment contains a sensor that monitors the temperature and changes the heating to suit. If you are using it at night, it will regulate the heating to a different temperature than when you are awake.
This heated sleeping bag has one main electronic device which is the heater. A smaller microprocessor is embedded in the upper layer of the bag. This smaller processor monitors your body temperature and adjusts the heating accordingly. The power button starts and stops the heating, as does the sleep mode button. The two power buttons can also be used to change the temperature of the lower layer of the bag.
One of the best features of the heated sleeping bag is its temperature regulating ability. The micro processor monitors your body temperature and changes the heating accordingly. However, to achieve the most accurate temperatures it is important that the two sensors are positioned correctly. The bottom sensor should point to your lower back and the upper one should point to your shoulders or hips.
The real reason behind the heated sleeping bag’s high temperature is the kickstarter liner. A kickstarter liner is made of a synthetic material similar to a memory foam. The lining is flexible but durable. In the event that the lining becomes too compressed, it quickly reverts to its original shape. The moment this happens the temperature inside the bag stabilizes and your sleeping bag is cool.
Another feature of the heated sleeping bags is that they use the exact same technology as the rest of their products. This means that all of the other features are working together as well. For instance, the two heaters are connected to the electronic pads that give you your heat. They then transfer the heat to your lower body and your upper one.
The final feature that these heated sleeping bags have is a built-in battery. The power pack of the product comes with a rechargeable lithium polymer (AA). The battery gives the power for the heaters to work. You can leave the power pack plugged in while you are sleeping. During the night, the batteries will charge and you can quickly warm up your bag using the kickstarter or by keeping it close by. The kickback mechanism lets you know when it’s time to switch the battery so you do not overheat the sleeping bag.
The only thing you need to keep in mind when using the bag with a simple liner is that, whenever the heating elements are not being used, the battery should be plugged in to prevent overheating. The kickback mechanism itself is very safe so there is no danger involved. The built in battery ensures that the bag stays very warm for several nights in a row.
The temperature control allows you to set the temperature at night. To do this, you just press the power button on the side of the bag. There are different buttons that will change the temperature based on whether it is day or night. The power button changes it from night to day automatically.
The temperature sensors monitor temperature throughout the bag. The most advanced model has two heat sensors. One at the front and one at the back. They detect body heat and adjust the heater accordingly.
One of the best features of these bags is that they have a very simple liner. The zipper goes right up to the top of the bag. Therefore, there is no need for a lining. The heating elements are contained within the bag itself. In fact, all of the controls are contained within the bag itself making it very easy to use.
