So what is the consensus here? Are the less expensive Oxford heated grips actually "better" than the Ducati ones?

I like really HOT heated grips ... and I read reviews saying guys had to "turn them down to LOW" in 30F temps. Most I've used are NEVER enough in temps below about 37F. ... and I can't feel my Gerbing in those temps either. ....
so I need sUPER Hot grips! Which is better? .... and how many Watts do the Oxfords draw vs. the OEM Ducati ones.
Watts matter!

My Ducati heated grips are too hot on high.

They are invisible.

I have Grip Buddies to make the grips thicker, and wear thick Motoport gloves. On medium the grips work well wearing the summer gloves along the 40 degree California coast.

Oxfords draw more watts than the Ducati grips for sure. I was able to pop the dash/lights/grips fuse by using the highbeam, grips on high, at the same time. It did take over 20 minutes of riding like this to finally pop it though, so I have a feeling it was barely over the current limit of the fuse. I can pretty much guarantee that wouldn't have happened with the OEM grips. So that being said, I just make sure to only use the Oxfords on high with the low beam, or just not use the high beam for too long with the Oxfords on high.

I have personally used them with thinner gloves in 30F weather, and they get so hot it's almost impossible to grip them hard because of the intense heat.

I have heated grips on my 2013. I want to change out the Ducati grips for some Renthal grips. Do I need to buy a certain type of grip though to handle the heat? Sorry for the newb question. I've never had heated grips before.

Not sure if this is possible, since the larger diameter of the heater won't work with the grips. As for the rubber though, any grip should be fine with the heat.

The OEM heated grips are moulded to the shape of the plastic/ heater element,
to stop them twisting if you get what I mean.

I second that experience. I have Oxford grips and the high setting is too hot for me as well. Medium was great for a 250 mile ride with ambient temps in the high 40's.
