Heated gloves

I am seriously considering getting these for this winter: https://cozywinters.com/shop/heated-cycling-gloves.html

Anyone have any experience with anything similar?

Yep, I am a pansie.

Last year I was using Craft Siberian gloves with smart wool liners, after two-three hour rides,specially in the mornings, fingers still got very very cold. On few rides I came back, and I couldn't feel them...

I wear REI One Gloves, and wear a pair of short-fingered cycling gloves over them. My fingers have never been cold in them. The advantage is that you can wear the One Gloves for sports other than cycling, and your fingers will be toasty.

In California? Seriously? I have done a lot of winter riding in Minnesota, sometimes at below zero temperatures. What you need is a good wind barrier for the hand, then moderate insulation around fingers. For real cold weather, liners inside mitts work well. Pearl Izumi lobster gloves are also pretty good. I find Descente Element or Wombat gloves sufficient for the coldest California days.

I used to spent a lot of time in sub zero temperatures also, where it actually snowed for 3-4 months. That is not the point. All the "winter" cycling gloves I tried so far produced the same results, cold fingers. Sometimes to the point where I loose all feelings in them. I know what I need, problem is I haven't found gloves that offer it yet, and I am tired of wasting money on something that produces mediocre results.

How about chemical hand warmers? Amazon sells the "HeatMax Hot Hands" for ~$25/40 pairs. They are small enough to put into an existing glove. While they don't produce a ton of heat, I found on the bike if they are in insulated gloves, they output enough to keep my hands from getting cold.

I used to ride a motorcycle and had a heated vest and grips and it was all wonderful. I bought some nichrome heating wire to make a pair of heated gloves (search the net, there are lots of instructions) but never got around to it. This year I'm going to use the wire to heat my insoles because that's where I need warmth the most. If you wanted to make your own gloves, I could send you some wire. Someone on eBay also sells a kit for making heated clothing, but it was pretty pricey ($50) for what it was (wire and connectors).

+1 Chemical hand warmers, I use them in my feet & hands when it's really cold. I forget which is which, but either the foot or hands ones are thinner and work better for slipping into cycling gloves & shoes. I think hands, but not sure.

Another option that works very well is "moose mitts", basically oversized covers around the drops that shield your hands from the wind.

Hmm I saw them for shoes that I was thinking of getting, https://cozywinters.com/shop/lh-foot-warmers.html, didn't know they made it for gloves. Coincidentally I have heated vest and gloves for my motorcycle. Most of the time I just say forget it, leave it unplugged and just layer up.
