Gerbing's Portable Dual Temp Controller 4.3 5 115 115
Works as advertised. Separate controls for gloves & jacket liner are good feature, allowing you to adjust to your comfort level. April 7, 2014
This control works great and is need to not get overheated This control is necessary to control the temp of the jacket. Because of the wiring it is hard to find a good place to put this controller for easy reach. The case is a almost must have because of the belt clip. March 12, 2014
Does What It Should Gerbing's portable dual temp controller does what it should - it controls my gloves' temperature separate from my insole's temp. Adjusting the knobs with gloves on is easy, and if you're feeling for it, there is a 'click' at each adjustment level. Looking at its construction I see no reason why it should fail under normal usage. February 28, 2014
Works great Had no problems. Works flawlessly. Used it on a few cold days and I could manipulate the controls with my gloves on. February 24, 2014
Needed accessory The unit works well, you can adjust two items so they are comfortable. There should be a holder included or a clip for the back. I forgot to order the leather holder and will wait until I have more things to order to get one. If a clip was on it or a way to attach the unit to my belt I would have given it a 5. Right now I put it in my jacket pocket. Unit is kinda of pricey for what it is, but like I said it is necessary I believe. February 11, 2014
Great thermostat This is a PWM controller that pulses the electricity on/off to control the temperature of jackets, gloves and pants. I kinda wish that there was a 3rd jack to separate gloves and pants. I dont have pants but have thought about getting them and that is one thing that has made me reconsider that. You might be able to daisy chain two of these together and turn the linked output to always on to feed a 2nd controller but that is fairly expensive. If your bikes electrical is maxed out then your headlight may flicker as the unit turns on and off. I corrected this by installing HID headlamps (with projectors, they are important) which use 15w less than the stock headlamps. This gave me enough surplus power that my headlamps no longer flicker. February 3, 2014
mine came defective Mine came defective. It does work but the green LED blinks overlap with the amber LED (meaning the green LED also shows amber blinks). I will take it up with warranty / support soon. Also sometimes, it blinks red and stops working. Quality control issues, eh? One last thing...it does NOT come with a battery harness (not that they say it does). I assumed it did (I did not have one). Gerbing includes a battery harness with their jacket or pants liners only. January 24, 2014
Much better choices out there In this day, plugging in a bunch of wires and having to stick the controller somewhere you can get to, much less see is obsolete. When I hop on the bike I just want to throw on my stuff, plug in a single wire and go. I tried the Gerbing for 5 minutes and when all the frustration of connecting it to my gloves and jacket set in, I removed it all and went wireless. That much money for 2 rheostats and 2 leds is rather ludicrous. There is so much room for improvement in this sector, and that goes for all manufacturers. January 21, 2014

Kimberly H: The videos on the website are excellent! From the video on the basics of Gerbings electrical system, I learned it was imperative that I not only get a dual temp controller as I already have a vest, also the socks will need to be controlled depending on the weather I am riding in. Thanks for being so informative and educational!! Mar 4, 2014
C D: Have used the single controller up to now. RevZilla recommended the dual so I can use gloves down the road if wanted.
Same price as the single so why not?
Feb 28, 2014

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

Frank1958: This should do the trick. Just remember that you need to ensure proper fusing for the power load.
BTW, a cigarette lighter is still connected to the battery, whether directly attached (always live) or via the accessory (on when key is turned).

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....

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?

Thanks.

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.

Jeff

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.

A shopper asked: whats the problem when the both lights on the controler blink and the gear quits heating? Oct 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
