- Q & A
It was a blizzard the first time I used these heaters. They were great! My feet stayed nice and warm all day. The heaters have three settings (low, medium, and high). The âhighâ setting gets pretty hot, so be careful not to burn your feet. I had them installed at a boot shop just to be safe. However, there are some videos on You Tube that show how to install these heaters. The batteries secure tightly on my boot strap. They are low profile and my ski pants easily fit over them. At the end of the day, you can plug the heaters in to the wall unit, and they will dry out your boots. I have been very pleased with these boot warmers.
Installing on custom footbeds
Worth the flack

Boot heaters are a bit of a polarizing accessory. I have friends who will say they are unnecessary, for the weak or emasculating. Then I have the friends who bit the bullet, bought boot heaters and will never go back.
I am now a member of the latter. I picked these up to help mask poor fitting boots. By the third run, I would not be able to feel anything in my forefoot and was unable to feel any feedback from the skis. Adding heat to my boots has counteracted the tightness of my boots and has allowed my feet to keep feeling for the whole day.
The Sidas Pro batteries are slightly bigger than the Nano batteries but provide longer life. I like having the 3 different heat levels as compared to the on/off of the Nanos. If minimalism is your #1 priority, the Nano is the ticket. The Pros are not much bigger but the 3 heat levels and extended battery life are worth the sacrifice in my opinion. Just be careful with the highest setting as it can get hot and start to burn your toes.
When done for the day, simply plug the batteries into the charger. You can also plug the charger into the elements to expedite drying of the boot.
Installation is not the easiest but is not difficult if you know what you are doing. Basically, you place the heating element on the toe area of the footbed, put a slit in the footbed to help route the cable underneath, then out the heel of the liner, up the back and to the battery mounted on the power strap (there are different mount options sold separately). The most difficult part is ensuring the included cover is applied without wrinkles or creases. The footbeds have a bunch of different contours so it takes some care. A heat gun or blow dryer will also help. So will cutting slits in the edge of the adhesive cover to help with contours.
Overall, I am a convert to boot heaters and will not be back any time soon.

Cold feet suck. A great day can easily be ruined by frozen toes. No matter how well your boots fit, low blood circulation will always prevail. In come this set of insoles. Feet are now warm, the day is saved! The best part about them is they mold to your feet so you still get the performance and fit out of a 'custom' footbed but with battery powered warmth. Make sure you keep them charged is all. Easy enough.

A friend bought these for his AT boots. After laughing at him at the start of the day, having numb toes all the way home in the car until I sat in front of the fire, persuaded me that boot heaters in an AT boot was a luxury worth having. These heaters last the prescribed 8 hours, are easy to use and clip nicely onto your boots' power-strap without the need for special adapters. They're pretty small and minimal, but keep the chill off my toes. Only note is that you need to ensure the connector gets pushed ALL the way into the battery unit - it was a little stiff at first. I'd buy another pair.
How Do I install these
Hi, I need new custom h heating elements....
Hi, I need new custom h heating elements. Can I buy them seperately?
Unfortunately we do not have separate H elements but If you go to the Sidas site I believe they have them available.
Does anyone know how to install the custom...
Does anyone know how to install the custom H insoles to the footbed? Does it go on top, underneath, etc...
The heating element goes on top at the front of the footbed. The red material shown in the photograph above is cover material to then go over the heating element. You stick the cover material over the top and then trip to the size of your footbed.
These do NOT come with custom insoles. Just with the heating element and cover material.
Do you need to cut a hole in the liner for the wire?
