The Charly LI-ION LIGHT is an electrically heated leather glove that is ideal for paragliding, cross-country skiing and ski touring.
The Charly LI-ION LIGHT is a true all-rounder for outdoor athletes and especially popular with paraglider pilots. Especially in the transitional seasons, summer temperatures often prevail at the launch site, while it is freezing cold at high altitudes. At the push of a button, the required heat can then simply be switched on during the flight. The goat nappa leather, which is guided sideways around the hand starting from the palm, protects the areas particularly stressed during paragliding from abrasion. As a true all-rounder, the Charly LI-ION LIGHT also scores with sophisticated features for numerous other outdoor sports such as cross-country skiing and riding, for which special reinforcements are available.

Charly's innovative heating system
In particularly frosty temperatures, Charly's high-tech battery-powered heating can be switched on. It takes into account the body's reaction in very cold conditions to lead the blood away from the extremities to the inside of the body, where it supplies the vital organs. Therefore, it is crucial for warm hands that the heat is passed over the fingers, because only then can the whole hand be heated. Unlike foil-based systems, which due to their low flexibility are only applied to the back of the hand and back of the fingers, the flexible textile heating wires of the Charly gloves are guided laterally along the fingers and over the fingertips.
This protected positioning between the fingers also has the further advantage of minimizing heat loss to the outside. The glove heats noticeably warmer and longer.
The battery technology
The flat Charly double batteries (7,4 V / 2.000 mAh / 14,8 Wh) can be conveniently stored in the two zipped pockets on either the top or bottom of the wrist. This way, 2 double batteries per glove can be used without loss of comfort.
The gloves are delivered with one battery pair per side, but can be retrofitted with the separately available spare batteries (order number HM1930) at any time. The heat output is independent of the number of batteries and is convincing in any case. The difference is only in the heating time, which is already with one battery per glove perfectly sufficient for everyday use.
At the push of a button, the temperature can be regulated in three heating levels, indicated by red, blue or green LEDs integrated in the switch. The additional charge level indicator reminds you to switch to a lower level in time to adjust the battery performance to the desired amount of use.
