Conductive Gloves

Updated on April 12, 2013

For a glove option that will allow you to use your touchscreen or smart phone device even while wearing your gloves, conductive glove products may provide the perfect solution. There are many different brands and models associated with conductive glove options, and there are conductive gloves that are made for all kinds of circumstances, conditions, and activities. This is a relatively new type of glove, and so consumers are only just becoming aware of how versatile and useful these conductive type gloves can actually be. In order to further inform consumers, some of the many uses and variations of conductive gloves will now be introduced and briefly discussed.

Overview and Basic Uses of Conductive Gloves

When thinking about purchasing a pair of conductive type gloves, there are many different uses for these gloves that should be considered. Whether you're a business professional in the city, or a rugged outdoors type, conductive gloves can allow you to utilize any kind of touchscreen technology that you need to use even with a thick glove material covering your hand. For example, many snowboarders and skiers are beginning to utilize this kind of conductive glove technology when they are riding due to the fact that it allows them to easily use their iPods, iPhones, and all other kinds of smartphone and touchscreen technology applications without having to first take off their gloves. Many cold area dwellers are also beginning to use these kinds of conductive glove products more and more because of how practical it is to be able to keep your hands warm, while simultaneously maintaining the ability to easily use the kinds of touch screen and smart phone technologies that have become so commonplace in today's world.

Material Composition of Conductive Glove Product Options

With regard to the different kinds of materials involved in the composition of conductive gloves, there are many different options corresponding to the different contexts in which these products are often used. For example, a conductive type glove that will be used in extremes of cold or weather elements will tend to be constructed to be a bit more heavy duty than a conductive glove that would be used in a more casual setting. Often times different materials will be used for the insulate material of a conductive glove than will be used for the external materials of the glove. For the insulate, there are specialized materials such as gore-tex that may be often used, but other materials like cotton or polyester are typically used as well. If a conductive glove has an external shell layer, which not every model does, this external layer might be made primarily of nylon or some kind of fabric blend that includes nylon. The fingertips of conductive gloves have materials that are given a specific charge, so that smart phones and other touch screen technologies can be easily engaged and activated by the material in the glove's fingertips. The relative durability of conductive glove products is generally determined by what materials are used in the glove, and also the volume of material included in a glove.
