Power gloves were a type of thin, energized gloves used by stormtroopers in hand-to-hand combat, usually while restraining prisoners. A stormtrooper using a pair was capable of physically manhandling an uncooperative Trandoshan prisoner, as was the case for Bossk.
In Hapes culture, power gloves were worn in conjunction with other armor pieces as standard attire in honor duels. These gloves were capable of breaking bones, and severely shocking an opponent.
