First, we have a lot of parents within our alpine ski race team that use heated socks.  Some parents do more standing around than they otherwise could if they were to ski harder and get the blood flowing.  And others just have circulation issues with age.  The socks work good for attaching to socks above the ski boots and putting the battery pack under the pant leg.  They are using 3 different brand of heated socks.   Cheap ones, and 2 brands that are expensive.  i can verify the brands in the  next couple of week when the mtn opens.

I have very sweaty feet, and thus get cold when i sit down or stop to glass.   I carry an extra pair of socks and will rotate them when i sit down to glass and start to get cold.   I have thought for the last two years, what if i carried a third set of socks that were battery heat for a few spots where there are very long days of glassing in cold and windy weather.   a guy could then swap back to traditional merino socks once they need to hike out or start covering ground again, should the battery pack prove to be an inconvenience.

 Exactly

We have 5 individuals using different heated socks on our ski race team.
Lenz Heath Sock
Hottronic
and the rest are using the cheap ones from Amazon. $40-75 per pair. 
Battery life is the part i haven't investigated for myself.

Those heated insoles look pretty slick and are modular so you can replace the heating element or batteries if they go bad.  I'm guessing you could also move them from your hunting boots to your ski boots or whatever boots.
