Now is a good time to show your rechargeable batteries some love.
Yes, it's the middle of summer, and temperatures outside are in the 90s and 100s. But in the seeming blink of an eye it will be Fall, and the winds will turn blustery. You've spent your hard-earned cash on that wonderful invention known as heated gear, so now is the time to keep the warmth flowing with some attention to your rechargeable batteries.
Pull out your rechargeable batteries, charger, and heated apparel. Give the batteries a good cycle by discharging them in the heated gear, and then recharge the batteries. Excellent! Now you can put away everything. You are now prepared for the cold weather that is certain to arrive.
Don't be caught off guard. Keep those rechargeable batteries ready for you to use again. And if the batteries have lost their ability to charge, many heated apparel brands sell replacement rechargeable batteries, so you can still keep warm this upcoming winter.

Stay warm, my friends!
