Widder Thinsulate "Lectric-Heat" Gloves XXS (similar to Held 7-8?)

These gloves would probably be most useful for someone considering heated gloves, in order to try to find out how they feel about being corded to the bike before making a larger investment in newer equipment. Battery-end of the power cord is similar to battery-tender connectors.

Since they were already old when I bought them on eBay several years ago, I don't know their age, but it's not the most modern wired technology. I didn't use them the last season or two, so I'm not sure if/how their functionality has been affected from sitting on the shelf, but even when I first got them, they heated unevenly. That is to say, although heat was definitely flowing through all of the coils, if I turned them off when the backs of my hands started getting hot, then my fingers got cold. If I left the power on to try to keep my fingers warm, the backs of my hands often had red marks near the heat coils by the time I got done riding -- at least until I started wearing glove liners underneath. Important to note is that those were experiences in very cold whether; I'd imagine if someone were just wearing them when it's cool to keep toasty instead of chilly, cycling the power button on and off would work fine even without glove liners. Being made with Thinsulate, the gloves may also be useful enough in non-extreme cool weather even without the heating function, I just have other non-electric gloves for those temperatures. The palms and backs of the fingers appear to be smooth leather, except the backs of the index fingers, which appear to be suede. The backs of the hands and gauntlets are non-leather material. Size-wise I'd approximate them between a Held 7 and 8. Asking $25.
