Coming from the “what will they think of next” category is this electrically heated scarf. Actually, heated scarves have been around for a while, but the makers have perfected – well, almost – the technology in recent years. If walking around with a layer of voltage around your neck is a little intimidating, it should be of some comfort to know that we’re only talking about five volts – the same amount that a cell phone charger puts out. In fact, when you don’t need heat, you can actually charge a cell phone from the power bank. The control unit rests in a pocket in the bottom part of the scarf. There are three heat settings. Low will give you up to seven hours of continuous heat; medium, about five and high about three. The scarf is made of comfy fleece, and it’s machine washable. Yes, it’s machine washable. But don’t wash the battery. It is a wee bit pricey, so be advised.
