How to make a pair of heated gloves? Answered

I like to make my own pair of heated gloves using 1.5 volt battery as the power source and I would like to use a small button battery and not a standard D size battery to powere the wire in the gloves. Can anyone tell me where I can purchase Nicrome wire that is in a fiber glass silcone jacket and where to purchase a battery holder that would accomiadte a button battery.

How much warmth are you trying to get? If heated socks get 8-12 hours for a 9-volt with 500 mAh of power how long do you think that a 30 to 70 mAh button cell would be useful? (there's a hint in there if you know where to look)

Try this for your battery holder need.
