The Heated Steering Wheel Cover makes winter morning drives a little less miserable

Heated Steering Wheel

The temperature is slowing starting to plummet further downward, and all we can do is put on more layers. Thankfully we’re not being pelted with ice or snow just yet, but we know those days are soon approaching. If you know you’re doomed to be cold regardless of how many sweaters you wear, then it might be time to turn to gadgetry to warm yourself this winter.

One of the worst things on a morning drive to work during the cold months is finally warming your car, and putting your hands on a freezing steering wheel. Some prefer to wear driving gloves to keep their phalanges at a normal degree, but there are those of us who despise having hand coverings for reasons such as hating the texture, or being afraid our hands will slip when driving. If you want your steering wheel to be warm by the time you grasp it, the Heated Steering Wheel Cover should be able to assist you.

This is exactly what it sounds like, and has the capability to keep your hands toasty for up to 35 minutes. The temperature range is anywhere between 95-110 degrees Fahrenheit. Recharging it will take three hours, and it can be plugged into the car’s 12-volt adapter. This is made of rubber, which means you’ll have both heat and grip, and it will cost you $79.95. If you want to warm your world through gadgets, you’ll likely want to look at something for the office, lounging at home, and for regular outdoor wear¬†as well.
