This overview about our Touch Screen Gloves was very enlightening since it reminded me how fast technology advances over the last 10 years even including gloves.
Touch Screen Compatible Gloves are becoming a vital necessity today, especially in the work environment due to the increased safety measures required in every workplace and in every aspect to avoid human hand contact when people use the same touch screen.
Touch Screen Gloves are also especially useful since they avoid having to remove the gloves you are wearing to use your mobile device, answer your phone, or enter data on a mobile work device or workstation. The examples, to name just a few, are food service people, cashiers at your local grocery store, and your local auto mechanic.
We are knowledgeable about gloves used with mobile devices since we were one of the first glove companies in the USA to introduce gloves for cell phones in 2011. Remember, that this was when our cell phones of choice had those qwerty keyboards like old-fashioned typewriters. Since then, cell phones transitioned to more sophisticated mobile devices with interactive touch screens. Touch Screen tablets also entered the scene at the same time.
To help you reminisce like I did, those cell phone gloves had removable fingertips and thumb tips to be able to use those keyboard buttons. That was especially vital in the wintertime or during cold weather. I had a few pair of these gloves myself and it is a funny to recall how technology advances so quickly, even with gloves.
However, and of interest, is that we still sell some of these cell-phone glove models since some people like wearing winter type gloves with removable fingertips and thumb tips. This type of cell phone gloves are still very practical gloves for many users and commuters in cold weather. If you are one of those who will need these types of gloves later this year when the cold weather arrives, see the link below.

OK… now for the tedious but vital information for you technically inclined people. I purposely avoided getting too technical here for obvious reasons, but my points here are needed to help you understand the newer Touch Screen Gloves today. By the way, if anyone has a technical question that I did not address here, please feel free to reach out to me.
Before I discus the gloves, it is important to know that there are two (2) types of touch screen devices. I will do my best to simply and briefly explain these.
RESISTIVE Touch Screen Gloves
The most common type is RESISTIVE touch screens that have two transparent layers separated by a thin air gap. The two layers act in common by a conductive coating when they touch each other. That is the basic description.
CAPACITIVE Touch Screen Gloves
The other less common type is a CAPACITIVE touch screen. These are different from the resistive types that do not rely on finger pressure. Instead, they work with anything that can conduct an electrical charge which includes human skin. Therefore, without getting too technical here, it makes sense that capacitive touch screens will not work with most gloves and especially with many coated gloves. Hence, if you have a capacitive touch screen, you will need gloves that have conductive material on the surface such as a carbon compound. By the way, our coated gloves work well with capacitive touch screens.
Ok, now that I have covered the boring but vital trivia about touch screens, let me get to the gloves that you need for your particular use when you must wear gloves and use a mobile device at the same time.
First, let me distinguish that we offer two (2) styles of gloves for use with mobile devices.
The first are Cold Weather Cell Phone Gloves with removeable fingertips and thumb tips.
The next type is our most popular Touch Screen Gloves.
As I already mentioned, both are popular, but it is important to distinguish between them since many glove companies simply feature the gloves without any good explanation.
