i decided to make these carbon heated socks because i always have cold feet. they get heated by some carbon tape you can get here: www.carbonheater.us
the carbon strib gets hot by letting power through, in my case 3x AA batteries. I showed you it with a 2xAA but use 3X AA instead
the carbon is very soft - just like silk, so you will not feel any irritating things.
i haven´t got any carbon tape at the time so i just showed you my idea with some black tape instead.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Select Socks
i chose these warm socks because i like them and they will hold the heat
Step 2: Lenght of the Carbon Tape
i decided to go with 40 cm of the 15mm strips (from www.carbonheater.us ) which will give me around 35-38 degrees celsius with 3x AA batteries
Step 3: The Electricals
as you see on the photo i will add a black wire to the one end of the strip and a red wire to the other end.
you can fastend the wires with a thin layer of silver-glue or you can use normal glue but i recommend silver-glue.
i then ran the red wire through a switch and then to the battery holder.
the black wire i just ran straight to the battery holder.NOTE: you need to use a 3XAA BATTERY HOLDER, i just showed it with a 2xAA one
Step 4: Get the Carbon on the Socks
now i just wrapped the carbon where i liked it which is at the toes.
when i wrapped the carbon around the sock, i just used glue to hold it in place.
but you can also use a needle and string.
Step 5: The Batteries
at first i just put the battery holder inside of my socks but then i got the idea to put it in my pocket instead which worked perfectly.
Step 6: Your Done:D
now your done so enjoy jour heated socks.
