Nice USB power source since 12V Milwaukee pack can be swapped out
Best reason to have one of these is:
a) you occasionally need DC power to a small device with a USB connector while using your Milwaukee 12v tools
b) you occasionally need to CHARGE your 12v Milwaukee batteries and don't need a quick charger, but really could use a small one

I have one of these in a Packout kit with the Milwaukee battery powered soldering iron. More often used as a charger, since a regular Milwaukee 12v charger won't fit in the same Packout kit, but this USB one does!

Describe Yourself:
Warmth is eh, battery pack too big
If I'm being honest, my expectations for this product were probably too high. I'm also not one for writing negative reviews, but I spend less time out on a jobsite (~30hrs a week than most people who might be wearing this so I want give them the heads up. If I'm in the car or on the train, the jacket is very warm, but the second I'm outside I wish I had another layer on. It defeats the purpose of getting a heated jacket if I have to wear more layers with it than I wear with my unheated jacket in order to make it feel warm enough. I am also surprised at how large the battery is. I understand that in order to warm a jacket, there needs to be a decent amount of power, but with tech being what it is today I assumed it would at least be flat to fit in the back of a jacket instead of protruding whenever I wanted to sit back. The batter also makes the jacket pretty heavy. Lastly, it doesn't stay charged all day, even when I turn it off when I go inside to preserve the battery. If I want to be warm on my walk home at 8pm, I have to carry the charger along with me. It just seems like a lot of extra work. All in all, I've worn it for a week so I guess I'm not returning it...but I wish I had gotten a little more for what I paid. Please write back to my review when you have updated the battery pack, I'll definitely buy a flatter or more compact version when it's available.
