More than a year has passed since Rip Curl announced their new heated wetsuit. We haven’t seen them in stores yet, but now there is a more simple way to upgrade your ordinary wetsuit that allready hangs in your closet. Want to learn how?
Hotsuits company comes from Australia, they are the ones that had their fingers mixed in the making of the World’s First Heated Wetsuit. But their next solution looks like a much better one (and more affordable). They have just finished developing a BatteryPowered Wetsuit Heater that can be used independently with any wetsuit you have or will buy in the future.
Wetsuit heater uses a waterproof battery about the size of amobile phone and a wafer thin, flexible heating element which providesa constant heat of 50 degrees Celsius (or 122 degrees Fahrenheit) for around 2 hours.
