Quanta Vici Review

Summary

Quanta Vici products perform better than many heated wearables today. It has a longer battery life and it can generate the exact amount of heat you want every single time. To make it even better, you can easily control it with your phone.

Pros

First introduced on Kickstarter as the “First ever smart heated gloves and socks”, Quanta Vici was fully funded in just 2 hours. So what is it and how does it compare with other heated products? Let’s find out here.

Overview

Quanta Vici, like all things today, are smart wearables. Meaning, you can connect and control them with your smartphone. And it’s no gimmick. This actually makes these gloves and socks more efficient in providing your desired temperature.

Unfortunately, these gloves aren’t exactly cheap. At $199, they are costlier than other popular heated brands like Savior Heated Gloves and Snow Deer. But if you’re used to purchasing high-end heated gloves, like Hestra Power Heater Gloves or Outdoor Research Lucent, then you’d find them rather affordable.

The same goes for the company’s heated socks, which also costs $199. While they aren’t the cheapest pair in the market, they aren’t the most expensive either. Lenz Heated Socks, for example, are more expensive. At this price point, you can save more money and buy the Quanta Vici socks and gloves as a set.

To be clear, however, Quanta Vici is not the first brand to offer heated products that you can control through your phone. Lenz, which has been around since 1987, offers heated products that you can control through an app.

Features

Temperature Regulation

Quanta Vici gloves and socks allow you to stay warm and comfortable at your preferred temperature. The company uses built-in sensors that can measure the temperature inside the wearables, regulate the heat, and keep it at the same temperature level.

Also, Quanta Vici doesn’t use low, medium, or high heat settings. Instead, they offer precision, allowing you to choose the exact temperature you want up to 131℉ (55℃).

Smart Wearable

You can connect your Quanta Vici gloves and socks to your phone and control them via the application, which will be available for both iOS and Android. With your phone, you can perform the following:

  • Set the temperature
  • Access warranty checks, updates, and support
  • See how much battery is left.
  • Customize low, medium, and high heat settings (for using the wearables without your phone)
  • Access Anti-lost / Anti-theft option
  • Voice control
  • Turn on the night visibility light

Quick Charging

Charging these smart wearables is quick and convenient. Just use a USB Type-C charger and you’re ready to go. The Quanta Vici products are compatible with power banks as well. So there’s no need for wall charging. This feature also allows you to use such wearables while charging.

Specs

Temperature Range Up to 55℃ (131℉)
Battery 7.4V with 2,200mAh (500-600 cycles of recharging)
Waterproof Level IP67 waterproof rating
Charging USB Type-C
Materials
  • Gloves: 75% recycled polyester and 25% spandex
  • Socks: Wool, nylon, and spandex
Certifications FCC, UL, CE, RoHS

The Quanta Vici products feature a 7.4V battery with a capacity of 2,200mAh. Its battery specs are pretty much the same as that of Snow Deer (gloves and socks) and Savior Heated Gloves. But surprisingly, the Quanta Vici promises longer battery life. Here’s a quick comparison.

Brand Battery Life
Quanta Vici Heated Gloves and Socks
  • High: 6.5 hours
  • Low: several days
Snow Deer Upgraded Heated Gloves 
  • High: 2-2.5 hours
  • Medium: 3-3.5 hours
  • Low: 6-6.5 hours
Savior Heated Gloves
  • High: 2-2.5 hours
  • Medium: 3-4 hours
  • Low: 4-5 hours
Snow Deer Heated Socks
  • High: 2-2.5 hours
  • Medium: 3.5-4.5 hours
  • Low: 5-7 hours

Heated products that can last for several days? Seems quite a stretch, right? But if it can last that long, Quanta Vici may just have solved one of the biggest problems with today’s heated products – short battery life.

Aesthetics

Quanta Vici gloves look very simple and ordinary. They are thin and lightweight with touchscreen-friendly fingertips and an anti-slipping grip texture on the palms. So if you need gloves that will provide you both warmth and dexterity, this is a great choice. On the other hand, the socks are designed for full comfort. They are breathable with arch support, anti-blister cushion, and shock absorption.

Both the smart gloves and socks feature a bright RGB LED that you can use for extra visibility at night when walking or running.

Final Thoughts

Efficient, convenient, and offering the longest battery life, Quanta Vici tops many of today’s heated wearables. They can do better in keeping you warm even in the coldest conditions and while they may be a little pricey compared to many heated products, they are certainly not the most expensive. Overall, the Quanta Vici is very promising, at least on paper.
