Without a doubt, having a remote control makes adjusting the level of temperature to your boot heaters much easier. Keep in mind, you have 2 batteries to adjust but the remote control adjusts both batteries at the same time. If you forget your remote control, let's be honest you probably will one day, the batteries can still be operated manually like everyone else does. Therm-ic is currently the only manufacture that offers a remote control.
The Therm-ic SmartPack 1200 with Remote Control is
designed to work in any boot or shoe. The SmartPack 1200 is unique because it uses Lithium-ion batteries which are lighter in weight than AA or nickel metal hydride batteries. Lithium-ion batteries weigh almost half of what the other system batteries weigh and are smaller in size so they fit on your shoes or boots easier.
Therm-ic SmartPack 1200 Battery Boot Heater with Remote Control and Classic insoles features....
Comfortable warmth up to 22 hours with freshly charged batteries which can be charged up to 1000 times.
You get 2 Classic insoles that have the pre-installed heating elements built into the toe area. All you do is trim to the size you require, slide them into your boots, plug in your batteries to enjoy warm feet.
A remote control. No need to bend over to adjust the power to your batteries. All you need to do is touch the button on the remote control, and it will raise or lower the power to both batteries at the same time. You can store the remote in a pocket or around your neck.
Install yourself! It took us about 45 minutes to do the initial installation in both boots. Watch the video to see how to install boot heaters.

Our comments; A remote control! What a great idea for a battery boot heating system! The Therm-ic SmartPack 1200 battery boot heater with remote control is without the easiest way to adjust your heat. It will make your outdoor activity more enjoyable.
I thought boot heaters were a gimmick and for wimps. I guess Im a wimp because Im never giving up my boot heaters. First time I ever skied with warm feet on a -10 degree day! Wish I knew about boot heaters a long time ago. One more thing, Alpine Accessories really knows their boot heaters. They were able to guide me to what I needed without spending too much. Great job AA!
