Most Frequent Ski Boot Heater Problems

  1. Batteries are not charged per the instructions.
  2. The wrong socks are used. Ski socks make a huge difference in comfort. If the socks are too thick the sock will prevent the heat to reach your toes. Wear a thin sock when you have ski boot heaters and your toes will be warmed by the heating elements.
