Anyone out there used battery heated gloves? Are they any good or a complete waste of money? I suffer badly from cold fingers and have tried just about every idea that had been offered in a previous post.
Any doctors out there with a good idea for me ..Last two walks over the xmas period whilst trying to get my fingers back to life nearly resulted in a slip which could have had a disastrous result.
Doctor Doctor please

I would have thought that small gel handwarmers would be more effective.

But you've just reminded me that I was going to treat myself to some buffalo mitts

In summary, they didn't help my Raynaud's and I stopped using them - cheers

I think primaloft works brilliantly, so much so that for my christmas pressie this year I got my missus to buy me a pair of hestra leather primaloft gloves. They are not really for the hills, just for walking around in and they are toasty, but I need to try them out walking home along the prom on a wet and windy evening with temperatures around 0C before I decide whether they are my new winter gloves.
My wife swears by wristies and mittens. The wristies help the blood flow through the wrist to her hands and the mittens keep the fingers very warm.
Have you tried pairing a pair of warm gloves with waterproof tuff bag mitts? This way you can take the mitts off when you need to use your fingers but your hands will still be inside warm gloves?

For them to work properly, you need another pair of(oversize) normale gloves, to wear over the heated ones, then they are nice and cozy.
I think it should be possible to carry additional Battery packs since they are connected by plugs.
I think these are the ones:

Very effective at getting and keeping the hands warm.
