    So I am trying to understand which one would be better to use I have Light monkey setup. Dual battery and head and built in pitkin and push lock connector, but Santi retail for 300 tax incl. and y connector etc. SF Tech is 5-600.

    what else is out there or are one of these worth it?

    I’d also add Smart-Tex out of Poland to your list. He can put whichever ends or splitters on it you’d like.

    I use the SmartTex ones (not often). Jerzy will install whatever connector you need on your Y adapter or sell you the connector unterminated if you wanted to do it yourself. I mostly just use these when it's below 2-2.5C (36-37f). Above ~4c (39f) I just stick with heavy duty wool liners.

    I believe they draw 15W each (30W total). Slightly less than Santi heated gloves although from what I've seen of people using the Santi system these have been more reliable.

    One thing to consider is that the Santi gloves don't like more than 12V, not sure what your LM battery puts out but just something to keep in mind when choosing.

    What happens with the Santi gloves when voltage is over 12? Just more heat or something else? I'm interested as most packs put out 12.6 V when fully charged...
