Gerbing's Portable Single Temp Controller
pricy but necessary
i understand why they dont include the controller with the jacket, for after spending $250 on the liner, i was a bit dissapointed to have to pay another $70 on a controller.
having said that, it was easy to connect to my battery, i wired it down to the side of my bike and mounted it so its on my bike instead of in my pocket. works well like this. i can adjust it on the fly while riding without looking.
ive also left it on a few times over night by mistake when leaving bike parked, came back to bike and it started up fine each time. i guess it barely draws power if the liner itself isnt connected?
either way ,im so happy i got the liner and controller. made riding in 20 degree weather a little easier.
here's a little run down on how i installed it.

Does what it's supposed to . . .
Product works fine. Construction quality appears high. I expect it to last.
1) Sometimes it will stop flashing and no longer pass current to the downstream jacket or gloves. Turning knob all the way CCW to off then back on clears this condition and the LED blinks green once again with current flowing. Not sure if this is some safety feature or a flaw. You can find yourself cold for no reason. Then you have to pull over and fumble with it before getting back on the road.
2) It would be nice if the adjustment knob had firm detents so it'd be more likely to stay in the position you chose. It's easily moved when brushed against.

I ordered this temperature controller to relace a very old model that wasn't working any more. The connections were different but I found it easy to find the correct adaptor (also from revzilla) to make everything work. I tested it and it works great. I find that I am looking forward to it getting very cold outside so I can really give it a workout!

Excellent controller for heated vests
Gerbing Heated wear is the best on the market. All their components are of excellent quality and work as promised. I have had the heated jacket for decades and they work well. I recommend this company and their products.

Precisely what is needed to dial in varying levels of comfort during rides where the temps are variable. Easy to adjust, too!

Great product - Good price - Very happy with it!
This was just what I needed for my heated gloves. Now I have the capability to turn the heat off/on and set it to any setting that I am comfortable with. It is simple to operate and works great!
