I've been using cheap Chinese heated grips for many years. The heating was weak, rubber got worn fast, right side grip was prone to cable break. I've to change grips every two years.
Now I have Oxford grips. Heating is much better, sufficient even for 0F rides. Doesn't wear, cables are better quality too. I don't like button control, that's the only down side.
By my deeds I honor him, flat twin.

Adding a note on the Oxfords. I love ‘em, but my initial set came with a bad controller. It would never register enough charge to get out of battery saver mode, so I had to turn that off. Initially, Oxford told me it must be my battery, but after push back on them, they sent me a new controller. Works great now.

+1 on Oxford grips. New feature where they automatically shut off when voltage drops too low works great!
