Cold is here to stay. To help us cope with it, Moon Berlin unveiled their new heating cashmere coat. A beautiful coat that discreetly integrate technology to make you feel better out in the cold. You know, you’ve been looking everywhere to find the coat that will make you feel warm, but it is actually never thick enough.
We’re really excited about this new fashion tech product because it does integrate technology without screaming it. And it’s how it’s going to work. Who wants to be hanging around wrapped up like a Christmas tree?
The coat comes with an option to have battery powered heating inside. Integrated at the back of the garment, the thin and flexible battery-powered panel uses a simple on & off switch that takes 30-60sec to heat up to around 40°C. The battery can also charge your smartphone in your pocket.
The battery takes 24 hours to fully charge and lasts around 6-8 hours. Which might seem not enough, but if you think about it you never wear your coat all day-long, and take it off several times in the day. So it should be enough for you to avoid having to charge it everyday.
