My neighbor and his wife have them. They are made by Milwaukee Tool. They take a rechargeable battery. They are pretty cool.

Had a 44 watt Widder vest I used back in the winter motorcycling days.. that helped. Battery powered is generally going to be lower wattage and shorter run time than wired, though battery technology is getting better.

Wonder how many watts some of the bigger blowers could spare. An on-board battery would help if you wanted to go for heated vest, grips, etc
