do those heated socks really work?
my darn toes can only last about 1.5 hrs in my lakes. Has anyone tried socks that heat up?
It is probably your insole that is the culprit. I have Shimano MW81's that are super warm except for at about 60 minutes in, if it is 0-10 deg F then I start to lose heat due to the pedal acting as a heatsink. I ordered the 45Nrth insole, should get it this week, I hope that cures this.

the lake insoles are a pretty good set up with some air pockets inbetween the top layer and bottom layer. but you bring up a good point. what are the 45Nrth insole like?
I realize this is not an answer to your question:
Do you currently use a super thin sock, a vapor barrier liner, a thick sock, then your boot (in that order)?
I tried VBLs for the first time this year, and while they are a sweaty mess, they're a ~10F warmer sweaty mess.
I tried on these at Cabelas, they had a demo pair out. They were noticably warm when turned on. I don't know how long they last or what not, but if I collect enough Cabela's points I will have a pair. They make gloves too.

I use Hotronics skiboot heaters. Coupled with wool socks in Garneau 0*-LS100s, they are super toasty, probably warmer than either my Garmont or Tecnica skiboots.
I tried electric socks but hated the extension cords.
