My experience is that they work very well, even inside a glove. The ones I use (and the brands vary - whatever I can buy at the cheapest price) stay very warm - and almost too hot at times - and last all day long. It's amazing to me that even when I take them out of my gloves at the end of the day, they are still very warm - and sometimes stay warm for 11 or 12 hours in total.

My own experience is that they are plenty warm to begin with, but they poop out by the late afternoon unless I open a new pair at lunch. I haven't ever paid much attention to the brand, figuring that with this kind of commoditized lo-tech stuff, brand doesn't matter, but maybe there are differences. My biggest problem with glove warmers, though, is that I like to be able to take my hand out of my glove (adjust the I-pod, answer a cell), and the warmers tend to fall out. Not a huge problem, but a nuisance. And like Tony, I use glove liners, which help keep the hands from freezing when the gloves have to come off. Still, would be nice to find heated gloves that work well ...
