User Review: Thermo Soles Rechargeable Heated Insoles
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: 149€
Good in theory, bad in practice. I had two sets, both never seemed to work as expected and both sets failed. The Thermo Sole guarantee is 6 MONTHS not 2 years as it suggests on their website.
- Fit in to most boot type footwear
- Have remote control
- You never know if they are definitely working
- Too thick for trainers/sneakers
- Will probably fail
- Poor guarantee
These heated soles seem great "in theory". However, having owned two sets, both failed, I would not recommend them.
As they are Thermostatically controlled, you do not have complete control of when they heat, i.e. you can use the remote control to switch them on but they may not actually heat as they will only react to body temperature. I found my feet would get exceptionally cold and would not feel any warmth from the soles until it was too late and I was either in considerable discomfort or I was no longer out in the cold conditions.
The first set I owned, the power connector/charging port broke and these were replaced on the Guarantee, the replacement set never really worked properly then failed completely, unfortunately Thermo Soles did not want to know the second time.
Friends/colleagues have also had very similar experiences so proceed with caution if you are going to give them a go regardless of this review...
