For this year’s US Winter Olympic team jackets, Polo Ralph Lauren integrated nascent DuPont flexible heater technology to actively heat the jacket. But to power the heaters for up to 11 hours, RL needed to develop a discreet and elegant rechargeable power module that would live in the jacket. Key Tech developed the module concept over several months, balancing many facets of product design including user interface design, material selection and finish, power management, electrical safety and design for manufacturability.  For more information, please read this article in the RL Magazine.

Go Team USA!
