What this is about
This Coleman Onesource Heated Chair is a folding type, so it comes ready to use and there is no assembly of any kind. You open or close this chair in a second.
The chair is with solid armrests on the front that are covered by the fabric so you do not touch metal anywhere. There is also a cup holder on the left side.
The chair comes with a carry bag equipped with a shoulder strap and with a draw cord on the top.
The frame is steel and the chair is stabilized with X-crossed bars on the front and on the back. The fabric is a synthetic material, most likely polyester, they do not provide information.
The feet are with plastic caps, they are narrow and not best suited to a soft ground. I would not use them in a floored family camping tent.
The heating system
This is the main feature of this chair. You have a dual port battery dock near right-side armrest, see the picture.
Note that one Coleman OneSource battery is included. The picture below shows how it looks, it is rechargeable of course. You can order a separate battery here.
It makes sense of having an extra battery for prolonged heating, and also if you have several products of Coleman that work with battery, so you can use it in all of them.
They have many products that work on the same battery, they include fans, lanterns, heated seats, heated sleeping bags, lighted tents, air pumps, etc. As the picture above suggests, you can charge your phone with the same set.
So you have 4 levels of heating. One fully charged 4800 mAh lithium-ion battery powers chair pad as follows:
- For 1.5 hours on high (133 °F, 56 °C).
- For 2 hours on medium (123°F, 50 °C).
- For 3 hours on low (113°F, 45 °C).
- For 2.5 hours on pulse setting (low to high).
The heating is in a pad where you have sewn-in wires inside the fabric that is with a PU coating.
Note that you can use it on the seat or move it on the backrest if you feel cold in this part of the body. There are toggles for this purpose in place, they are slightly visible in the picture:

Who is this chair for
Regarding the capacity, this chair is quite typical with its official 300 lb (136 kg) capacity. This should be good enough for most of users.
Regarding the dimensions, it is large, the numbers are 30 x 32.5 x 37.5 inches (76 x 83 x 95 cm). The backrest is high but not to offer a headrest, just to know.

User Review( vote)
So this Coleman OneSource Heated Chair is well built but its overall features are quite typical. However, the detail that sets it apart is its heating system.
The chair is perfect for use in a cold environment but you can use it anywhere without heating of course. The included battery can be used throughout the year separately, with many of the products of this brand. So this is a true bonus that comes with the chair.
