I thought this was interesting a lens wrap to keep your lens from fogging up in the cold

I'm not sure if this is a good thing, I would be a little leery of warming up only part of the lens, the front element would still be out in the cold.

They only warm the lens and very useful for astro photography even when temps are warm. Gets rid of condensation. Chemical hand warmers and a rubber band works too!

Interesting, I looked over the product, and since I cannot read Japanese or Chinese, I cannot determine if the charging cord disconnects at the lens wrap, if it does not, I see this as a problem.

It doesn't disconnect - it needs to be connected to a power pack - tie one on tripod. There are several others and all are made the same.
