Unlike regular lifedrain, Gauntlets' lifedrain heals by the full damage dealt, instead of half. The two lifedrain effects are separate; it is possible for one to activate and the other to not activate on the same combo ender, and every hit of the combo ender (for characters with multi-hit combo enders, such as The Arkham Knight, Harley Quinn/Arkham Knight or Raven/Prime) has a separate chance of triggering the effects.
Gauntlets of Azrael is often paired with Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar as they both offer unique effects on combo enders. However, Gauntlets of Azrael is less popular as it lacks the significant punch of the Scimitar and the health it grants does not synergize with the lifedrain, which scales according to damage dealt.
Since the lifedrain scales with the actual damage dealt, in addition to the characters with 2-hit combo enders as listed on Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar, it is slightly more effective on Raven and Killer Frost/Prime since not only do they have 2-hit combo enders, they do more damage than normal (4%+3% and 4%+4% respectively, instead of the normal 3%). On the other hand, this makes it work poorly with Martian Manhunter/Prime: out of the three possible outcomes of his light basic combos, his stun only does 2% damage, his power drain only does 50 flat damage, and his mental damage effect doesn't have a combo ender at all and cannot heal him.
Gauntlets of Azrael works very well for Darkseid/Apokolips, as when his Life Steal combo ender effect activates, it deals 15% of his damage stat prior to modifications, and the Life Steal will stack with the Gauntlets' lifedrain.
While Gauntlets of Azrael is possibly the least desirable piece of 5-star gear, it has strong scaling from further fusing after it is evolved; fully evolving it can bring a surprising amount of team endurance.
It is very useful for Survivor, as it allows one character (preferably the extremely strong Survivor choice, Raven/Prime, who also has very good combo enders to work with) to constantly refill the team's health, once again great paired with Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar.
