The basic Thunderbolt electric sock kit contains a pair of heated, high-quality socks coupled to a state-of-the-art rechargeable battery pack. With a high-low power selection switch waist-mounted control box. The control box features a built-in LED which gives an indication of high or low heat settings and shows the state of charge of the battery. Also included is a 110 volt "smart" battery charger.

The heated electric socks are designed to be worn inside a pair of insulated boots, over a pair of inner socks. One cable from each sock is normally run up the leg between long underwear and outer pants and exits at belt-level. The cable connects to the controller/battery pack, which may be clipped to the belt on either side of the waist.

The battery pack is quite light, weighing just 13 ounces with carrying case and attached control box.

Instructions for Care and Use of Thunderbolt Heated Socks

Following are suggestions for using your Thunderbolt heated electric socks to obtain maximum comfort and product life.


First Time Use

  1. Charge the battery.
    Connect the charger to the rechargeable battery pack for several hours (overnight is fine). The charger will not overcharge the battery. This will prepare the battery pack with a full charge for maximum time heating your electric socks outdoors.
  2. Put on a pair of lightweight inner socks and long underwear.
  3. Put on the Thunderbolt electric socks, routing the power cables up to your waist, then together, right or left side, depending on your preference.
  4. Pull on outer pants, over the cables.
  5. Clip the black control box to your belt, right or left side and insert cables from socks into control box jacks labeled socks (left and right are interchangeable). Do not plug battery pack in until you want the electric socks to begin heating.
  6. When you are chilly and wish to begin using the electric socks, plug the battery pack into the control box jack marked bat. This will turn on the heat.
  7. Select High or Low power as desired. Low power is adequate for most situations and offers increased battery life between recharges.
  8. The blinking LED on the control box will let you know at a glance if you have selected high or low power (fast blinking means high power). In addition, as time passes and the battery becomes exhausted, the LED will blink slower and slower, finally stopping when the electric socks are no longer heating.
  9. Often, it is not necessary to keep the electric socks heating constantly. By periodically removing the battery connector plug from the control box, you can extend your battery life considerably.
  10. Since the battery pack is built using the latest NiMH cells which do not exhibit a discharge memory, you may recharge the pack any time, even though it is not fully discharged.

Care of Your Thunderbolt Heated Socks

  1. Under normal use, your electric socks do not need frequent washing. Changing the undersocks frequently usually does the trick.
  2. When the time comes, carefully hand-wash the electric socks using a mild detergent, and drip-dry. Drying may take a couple of days, so plan ahead.

Awesome heated socks
November 20, 2017
I purchased these socks four years ago. I don't know why I waited so long. These socks are amazing. I fish for steelhead all winter long and these sock are an essential part of my gear. They heat the bottom of my feet from my toes to the heel. I cover a lot of ground during the day fishing and the socks hold up well. If you spend a lot of time outdoors in the winter and you have a problem with cold feet you need to buy these socks. I turn them on and off as needed during the day and usually only use one battery. I purchased an extra battery just in case but I seldom use it.
  • An outstanding piece of equipment. They keep your feet warm all day long if you cycle them off and on. If I run them steady on low I get about five hours of run time. Warm feet mean longer time fishing.
  • They are expensive but they work! They are a little bulky with the wires and battery pack but nothing that can't be solved.
