TWO battery housings that hold FOUR AA batteries each and clip on the back of a boot, shoe, or strap. A battery pack with four AA batteries weigh 5.3 ounces and the dimensions are 3" high x 2 3/4" wide x 1" deep.
A pair of Perform insoles which are anatomicly shaped left and right with a heel cup and arch support. The Perform insoles give great support for stability and balance. They are made of high quality EVA foam. The heating elements are pre installed in the toe area of the insoles so all you need to do is remove your current insoles, trim the Perform insoles to the same size and slide them back in. You can opt to run the wires for the batteries right up the back or put a small slit in your boot liners and run the wire between the liner and shell. (We recommend the later.)

I talked to a lot of people that said I should get the rechargeable battery boot heating system but I found these worked just fine for me. The 4 AA batteries in each housing do make them a little heavy but not too heavy. Only problem I have is I go through 8 batteries each day I use them. Glad I only go skiing 10 times a year.
