Hotronics with Intuition Liners - OK to use?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Anybody have any experience using Hotronics with their Intuition liners?  

 

I have Reynaud's Syndrome, so my feet are cold when most people's feet aren't.  I want to get Intuitions this season, but don't want to have to give up my Hotronics.

 

Intuition's website says avoid putting boots in a heated gear bag because the liners are heat sensitive.  It seems like the Hotronics are surely going to have an effect at least as big as a heated gear bag.

 

Does anybody use Hotronics with their Intuitions?

Have not had a problem and have used many years. Probably should not leave "on" when boot is at room temp for long periods, but I even doubt that would cause any issues.  the hotronics will not be an issue when skiing.

I use Hotronics with Intuition liners too. I also use a Hot Gear Bag but I never turn that to high heat. No problems with my setup for a couple of years.

My wife has used Hotronics for many years in her Intutions with no problems. When you combine the warmth of the Intuition with the Hotronics your cold feet will only be a nasty memory. BTW if you don't have a custom footbed get one.

I have used Hotronics with Intuitions for at least 4 seasons of 100 days each.  No problems, only happy feet!

My shop does is all the time. You won't have any problems.
Remember the heat is at the toes. And it doesn't get as hot as the foam needs for remolding.

Have you asked Intuition directly?  I've found them to be most helpful and have responded to my emails and phone calls.

I did a live "chat" online at Intuition.  The answer from the employee was just go ahead and put them in the heated gear bag and put the heaters inside the liners if I want, since everyone does what they want anyway.  The manufacturer just won't guarantee that the liners won't change.  

 

That's what she said.  So I came here.

Call them.  When I did, I talked to the owner.  Same when I emailed them.

Most of the heat that Hotronics produce is going to be between your foot beds and your feet. I do not see how this will affect the liners. Second I do have a very poor circulation and my Hotronics were without the cambrelle cover especially over the heating elements and sometimes I barely feel any heat. How hot do you think they are? It shouldn't affect liners in any way, IMO.
