My wife suffers badly from cold feet in the winter. I'm looking to buy her a pair of electrically heated socks powered off rechargeable batteries, preferably from a USB socket so they can be recharged in the van. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Never heard of that. Something I might look into. I have been wearing fluffy socks and Ugg slippers to keep feet warm

Consider heated insoles rather than socks. I have Therm-ic insoles in a couple of pairs of boots and swap the Bluetooth/ iPhone controlled batteries around to suit -insoles are relatively inexpensive, it’s the batteries that cost. I was out in Serbia and Hungary in the depths of winter with toasty feet while a colleague with heated socks gave up and had to head back to the vehicle to warm up. IMHO heated insoles win over socks every time.

as above
I have suffered with cramp in feet and legs for a very long time. During the colder weather I simply wore thicker socks or my walking socks in the motorhome but recently I had a very bad sesion of cramps. The GP has now put me on Qunine Sulphate tablets.
I have heard of heated boots but not socks. Maybe this would be worth looking into.

This.

Search for motorcycle heated insoles, lots of choice.

My wife's feet are cold even when sitting in the house so I wanted socks she could be wearing all the time and put shoes/boots on over the top when going out. If there's any fussing around with pads or the like it's likely she won't use them.

Lots of lots of Brownie points to be earned here Lizbiebrowne .. put her feet in your crotch and vigourly rub them like you really really do luv her...
If you don't those ice cold feet will attack you in bed.. 🤣🤣

Just check out the reviews first as my wife bought me some socks from Amazon last year that worked great for the first few recharges, then the batteries failed. I looked up the reviews and the majority were saying the same and no joy from the seller.

Like Oldrat said, motorcycle kit has been around for a long time and is usually very robust.👍
