RS TAICHI's "e-HEAT" has a 10-year history as an electric heating item for motorcycles. During that time, the product has been tested and perfected, and for the 20th model, the company succeeded in enhancing the capacity of the dedicated mobile battery. The new model has 1.7 times longer connection time than the previous model.
You can use it without recharging on the go within 3.5 hours round trip.
The e-HEAT can be set to three levels of heat generation: High Power, Normal, and Economy. The newly-developed mobile battery can be used for about 7 hours for jackets (using two jackets) and about 3 hours and 30 minutes for gloves at the "high power" level. The "Normal" setting is for about 9 hours with two jackets and about 4 hours and 30 minutes with gloves. In the Economy mode, the connection time is about 14 hours with two jackets and about 7 hours with gloves, further enhancing convenience.

The outer fabric, which is both windproof and stretchy, is lined with hair-long fleece for a good fit and increased warmth. It can be powered from two types of batteries: a dedicated mobile battery and an in-vehicle battery.
Heater panels are located on both shoulders and back. This is a point that easily touches the ground when the rider is in a riding position, making it even easier to get the heat-generating effect. The 3-step switch emits red, yellow, and green light according to the mode. The dedicated mobile battery is stored in a pocket.
