VBlanket: Cordless Heated Throw convertible to a hooded cape

Introducing V-Blanket, the world’s first portable battery-powered heated blanket that can be transformed into a hooded cape to, let you stay warm while moving freely in any season. It features LED for reading, camping, cycling, etc. 

The heating material was weaved in with fibers using a revolutionary technology which makes it imperceptible. It warms you seconds and keeps you toasty for hours. The temperature of the evenly distributed heating zones can be adjusted on different levels for optimal comfort. The interior is made with premium cotton twill that maximumly traps the heat. The exterior is 100% waterproof. It is washer-safe and packs down into an accompanying sack for easy carrying. It has a built-in USB port to keep your devices charged while keeping you warm. 

 V-Blanket gets really innovative when it comes to creating solutions for staying warm while being flexible in cold weather. You can convert it from a blanket used for indoor purposes to a hooded cape suitable for outdoor activities in a matter of seconds through its unique design.   

V-Blanket provides warmth, fits snugly and offers excellent mobility in wide applications: camping, sporting events, everyday use, poor circulation, travel, emergencies, etc.    

V-Blanket has LED lights sewn on both the chest and the back of the cape. It illuminates constantly as a book light for reading indoors while keeping you warm, or intermittently as a flashlight to increase your visibility in the darkness for safety purposes while camping or cycling.

The LED light is ergonomically designed on the blanket with particular angle and size to cast soft, shadowless light without directly flashing into your eyes, yet suffices to see clearly while reading. 

Having clear advantages over traditional heated blankets that use built-in heating panels that are bulky, inflexible and uncomfortable to the feel, V-Blanket uses state-of-the-art carbon fiber weaved in with other fibers to create an ultra-fine and flexible texture, delivering the coziest and most comfortable warmth you can ever imagine.

The powerful V-Blanket heating system includes 5 inherent heating zones. Heat is instantly turned on via a press on the control button and evenly distributed leaving no areas that never heat up.

 The temperature of different heating zones is controlled by different buttons.

HOW TO USE:

  • Plug In – Connect the power bank to the plug, which is installed in the pocket.
     
  • Turn On – Press and hold button control for 3 seconds and the button will flash red.
     
  • Temperature Adjustment– Press the button again to modify heating levels.

V-Blanket reaches 30°C (85°F) in just 30 seconds, providing instant warmth in any weather conditions. 

Control the temperature settings on V-Blanket with the touch of a button and choose from high, medium or low heat depending on how cold it is outside. The button changes in brightness to indicate the heating level after being pressed:
 

The interior of V-Blanket is made with a soft, thick, warm cotton twill that has great heat retention and provides excellent warmth and comfort. The exterior is made with 100% waterproof nylon that is aimed to give you extra protection from wind, water, and the elements.

 Unlike traditional heated blankets, which are notorious for bulky components and tangling cords, V-Blanket works at a non-hazardous 5V low voltage that it can be powered by any type of USB external battery pack. It also has a built-in female USB-A connector to charge your mobile device while keeping you warm and cozy. It is ideal for outdoor sporting events, untethered use on the couch, or chilly airplane cabins.
 

V-Blanket is incredibly lightweight and packable. It measures 54.5” x 38.5” when laid flat and weighs just 1.5 lbs. It compresses into a stuffed pack that measures 14.8” x 7.9”. With V-Blanket, you are always prepared for unexpected weather on vacations and holidays.

V-Blanket is both machine and hand washable, so you can just throw it in the washer with no worries. It can also be spin-dried at a low temperature.

V-Blanket does not sacrifice style for utility. In addition to its superior heat functionality, it comes in three different colors that are all very fashionable and stylish.

You can add $10 to turn the normal hood into a heated one now! 

Note: please do send us a message to let us know that you add an add-on to your pledge.

The camouflage color is available to be chosen with $10 added! Because the camouflage color requires a special cloth, the cost will increase. However, we have minimized the cost of it with the best offer for you.

But, we are still hesitating to choose which version for the camouflage. Maybe you should be the one to decide which version is better! Just leave a comment to tell us your favorite version! We will count all votes in and pick the most popular one 7 days before the campaign ends.

Note: please do send us a message to let us know that you add an add-on to your pledge.

We are a professional heated apparel manufacturer and have over 15 years' experience with design and production on heated garments. V-Blanket was designed by our new team Heated Hub.

Our designer, Annie L.F. Wang, works in the ready-made garment industry for over 30 years and is very experienced in applying ergonomics to improve the garment’s comfortability and practicality.

During the winter, the weather changes fast and becomes cold. We know all the people need something can easy to take with them that's convenient to use. So, we came up with the idea of the heated throw and called V-Blanket. The products can keep up a human's body temperature but also generate heat to let people getting warm.

We know have a very good team on design and production, and we know our design and production ability will make this heated throw as a necessity and the perfect item for people to use.

Risks and challenges

For heated apparel, the skin is the first frontier. The closer to the skin, the better the performance will be.

After 18 months of development, we used a carbon fiber knit into the knitted fabric. The fabric is more stretchable, more breathable softer and more comfortable. Not only that, but it heats quickly and directly.
