Gerbing 12V Portable Dual Temp Controller
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

the cables on the module could be wired in differently to help with routing to gloves.
i have only used this a few times a but was satisfied with the warmth of the gloves. i rode in 30 degree weather and that was as cold as it got but hands stayed warm. i did how ever have the heat cranked all the way up that day, and my hands sweated some but no burn sensation like it talked about. over all it seems to be a good product. i live in Louisiana so it dont normally get really cold.

Does as it states
Controlls both the jacket and glove liners with seperate controls. Seems like it is made well.
