Gerbing 12V Portable Dual Temp Controller 4.3 5 148 148
It works I never bothered with the single controller. This thing works great. I have 2. The older one had a loose knob but I fixed it. My newer one has never had any problems. September 28, 2015
Fantastic device The 12v dual controller is awesome I can control both my glove and jacket heat allowing me to adjust where necessary. Its a must have if you want to control temperature rather than wire in to get a full blast at all times. August 3, 2015
Does what it should I have a Gerbing liner and gloves and bought the dual controller for them. I agree with the other reviewers that the controller seems really bulky and finding a place for it was a challenge. However, I purchased a tank bag that has a top phone pouch and decided to put it in there. It's waterproof, the cords hang out of the bottom, the knobs are accessible (though I do have to stop to make adjustments) and it's close to both me and the pigtail. When I leave the bike, I take my tank bag with me and the controller comes along. There just happens to be an outside pocket to tuck my cords into - or I can push them up into the phone pouch. Either way, this has been pretty convenient for me and I don't have to deal with the controller in my pocket or attached to my belt and dangling cords around my feet. May 26, 2015
Easy to use The plug and play feature makes this product easy to use. The knobs are big enough to adjust with your gloves on yet not too big. April 27, 2015
Works exactly like it says You need this to power your other Gerbing gear. I'd get the adapter so you can connect a battery charger as well. Although you're probably riding through the winter anyway, it's still nice to have it, and it's cheap enough compared to the rest of the Gerbing stuff you just bought. Also get the clip-on case. This plus the case lets you clip it onto your pants pocket, your belt isn't great because your jacket will get in the way of the controls, I've found. I usually go with pants pocket. It's not perfect, and it never stops being weird getting off the bike with dangling wires everywhere, but at least you still get to ride when it's cold out. March 18, 2015
Works great This temp controller is easy to use - even with gloves on. The wires are long enough to connect down to the battery and up into my coat. The only thing I would suggest is getting a belt clip or some way to fasten it to your jeans or jacket - it took a few rides to figure where to leave it when I was riding. February 16, 2015
Works and good quality. Product works as described. Placement is always the issue and no fault of the controls however the dials spin easy enough that your clothing can adjust setting without intent. Dials are also very close together making it difficult to adjust one with thick gloves on without touchin the other. Of course if they were too big that would be a problem too. I have multiple bikes so I opted for this versus a perm mount on the bike which would have been ideal. Overall though it seems to be of good quality. January 28, 2015
Temp controller complements heated gloves and jacket liner If you live in the PacNW and intend to ride on those cold dry days, or commute to/from work, you need this item along with your choice of gloves and jacket liner which is what I'm using. I bought a great bike from a buddy and needed these to continue to ride through out the year and was able to control the temps of my hands and core just right. I had it at the lowest setting in 35-40F temps and was comfortable. My minor gripes about this item is that the separate leather clip case is not included. Also there should be labels around the knobs for easier identification of connected accessory. January 23, 2015

Karen H: Hello,
I had the same problem with mine. Called Gerbing Tech Support and found the solution was pretty simple. Turns out the connection was being lost between the male and female plugs.
To fix the problem start with a glove. Look inside the connection where the gloves plug into the temperature controller. There is a "male" terminal in there. The male prong is split into halves. The halves need to be spread slightly apart slightly. (Mine weren't and would stop heating unexpectedly. I would have to wiggle or twist the connection to get it to work again). Gerbing told me to take an x-acto knife or a pin and VERY CAREFULLY spread those apart to ensure a good connection. Worked like a charm. Haven't had any problems since with either my coat or gloves.
Hope this works for you.
Ride safe.

Charles P C: Actually you have two questions. I have the same problem with "not heating" as expected. I find the answer by Karen H most heartening and I am going to try it. Good luck to me! Now for the answer to your "first question": The lights ALWAYS blink! You will find that as you turn up the "juice" (each separately), they will blink faster, until they appear to be on continuously. (You, as I, thought the two issues were related because we never closely looked at the LEDs until we didn't get adequate heat. ) Nov 6, 2013

Fred N: I need to know what type of motorcycle the dual controller is being used with because on bikes like a BMW with a CanBus systems, I have seen the controller blink but not received heat because the CanBus system has decided I was drawing too much and cut me off. So - what did I do - I now wire pigtails directly to the battery and eliminate the worry of the CanBus doing "it's thing". Oct 7, 2013

Chris B: FIT is EVERYTHING!!! heated stuff should be huggy, if it's loose fitting you loose soooooo much heating effect. Gloves especially. The micron rope elements and thermocoples are fast acting. ( like 2 seconds from 30 degrees to WOW that's toasty).heated wear is opposite the norm thinking of loosish layers to trap layers of air. HUGGING - NOT TIGHT.... Dec 3, 2013

Hansy J: Use the Y-shaped wire that came with the gloves by snaking it thru your jacket's arm. You then hook the wire into the accessories end of the controller, and the controller to your bike (you can run it all the way to the battery, or to your cigarette liter). Mar 7, 2014

Derek D asked: Hi.

Can this dual controller support two vests simultaneously? For example, can my passenger plug her vest in while I have mine going? Would it require a fuse change?


Jan 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeffrey R: Derek,

I use this item, powering a vest and pair of gloves. I've never used it to power an item worn by someone else, but as long as you have the proper fuse for the electrical load, the only problem I can see is that the cables are rather short, and I'm not certain the cable from the controller would reach your rider's vest.

Assuming you can get the cables to reach, you will need the proper fuse for the additional items and you may also need to consider the load on the connector to the bike. If it is connected through a port, instead of directly to the battery, it may pose somewhat of a problem in that those ports do not supply as much current as a direct battery connection would. If you're connected to the battery already, just change your fuse and see if the cables will reach.

One other word about the device. Some versions of these have built in limiters on the current. In other words, they will occasionally stop providing power. This was only on the older models, however. If you receive one of those, as some are still out there new for sale, just turn the knob all the way down until it clicks off, then turn it back on again and it should begin to provide power once more.

I hope this helps.

Jan 29, 2014
Reply to Jeffrey Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
William S: Derek,

I'm sure it could. You will probably need an extension cord to make the connection. Yes, it may need a fuse change. The unit and the vest come with a chart that shows what fuse is needed for each of the possible items to be connected (pants, gloves, vest, socks, etc).

This is such an interesting idea that I might give it a try with my wife when there are riding days that do not require the heated gloves as well.

Hope this helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris B: Oh it'll easily reach, but you buy th cigarette lighter adapter. They're cheap. Revzilla and Gerbing's makes 1 for BMW type and one for the more common cigarette lighter port. Climate where you are will be a big factor in deciding on a direct battery connection and quick disconnect versus the adapter connection. Wire from your hip to the power port can get goofy or awkward but a quick connect under the seat rim isn't. # of weeks of cold in a year dictates the ergonomics. 2 months of 30 degrees or lower Go direct, 2 weeks a year, cigarette port....

Theron D: No, you do not have to order an extension for yourself. The gloves should come with a "Y" cable (mine did) long enough to connect to your dual controller, which is definitely the way to go for additional heated gear like jackets, pants, etc. in the future.
Ride safe.

Joseph A. M: I bought Gerbing gloves & the dual controller & you do not need an extension. Everything you get is enough to reach the controller & the gloves & the battery. And yes installation is easy, if I can do it so can you, hook up to the battery is easy, not a big deal. Feb 20, 2015

Lisa H: Yes it does click when you turn the knobs on or off. Also there are lights by the knobs that blink slow to fast depending on how high your hat is turned up Dec 30, 2014

Sydney P: The temp controller doesn't have clicks. I've used it for two years now and haven't had an issue with the temperature changing on its own. As you ride you will be adjusting it up or down to stay comfortable. When I get up to highway speed I turn it up vs. Local streets I don't need it as warm. I have my temp controller attached to my leg so it's easy to reach while I'm riding Dec 31, 2014

doug m: I had that problem, gerbing replaced the controller. { made in china to my disappointment}...the have positive clicks, but there should be more resistance to prevent them from turning Jan 21, 2015

Parag M: I dont recall the specs, yet Ill start by saying this is a great product. It is, in fact, designed for what you want to do - plug in your pants to the jacket (and socks to the pant, if you desire). The channel for the gloves doesn't heat too much, and at top heat will only keep your fingers temp neutral (which is good). My friends regret not having the dual controller.
...refrain from running power hungry accessories on your bike (battery capacity) while using this.

A shopper asked: I have the T5 gloves and dual controller. I keep blowing fuses. I started out with the recommended fuse, it blew. Then I went to the next higher one and it blew today.

Edward H: The controller monitors the battery voltage and shorts.
Red/Green flashing is an indication of low voltage. Red flashing means there is a short or an overload

Frank S: My riding is in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the extreme East Coast of Canada and without heated gear the riding season but be much shorter and much less enjoyable.My riding hasn't started yet as it is a balmy -4C with a wind chill of -13.......burrrrrr.

I ran a lead from my battery just out under my seat.
I run my heated jacket, gloves and boot inserts through my controller and it all works great at initial hook up and yes the indicator lights do come on when each switch is activated.

Let's say ahem......... my waist has a bit more circumference than the many years ago when I started riding after sitting on bike feel I reach from my lead to the battery and connect, then connect to my jacket and to gloves and inserts. Gloves are through jacket wrist wiring and inserts through wiring down my pants legs since I don't have heated pants.

I then strap the controller to my thigh via velcro external strap, again by feel and I reach down without looking as I ride and make temp adjustments so other than initial hook up I don't actually view the controller.

However I position the knobs facing forward for better ergonomic reach and can't say if the lights remain on but the power certainly does.
Hope this helps.

David K: supposed to be yellow or green to be OK. RED means low voltage.
Does it only go red when at idle or while you are driving too.
