Gerbing 12V Portable Single Temp Controller
Does what it's supposed to.
I bought this to run just the T5 gloves and it worked great. Then my feet were getting cold, so I bought the heated soles as well and got they Y splitter. This single dial controlled powers both just fine.
There was one time the that LED on the controlled was alternating red and green. I don't know exactly was was going on with it, but it unplugged it and plugged it back in and it's been working great ever since.

Good for me
It works like it needed to. Had to turn it down the more i rode.

Only used it on one trip so far. So far so good! Only wish cables were just a little bit longer, especially one that goes to battery extension cord.

Excellent thermostat control
My heated gloves came with the standard on off control and sometimes got too hot. The temp controller is perfect. Lets me adjust to just the right temp to compensate for the chilly mornings, or the freezing mornings.

great little unit... but could be improved.
bought this to run my Gerbing T5 Hybrid gloves (great gloves BTW see my review of them)
does everything it is supposed to. keeps the glove temp pretty consistent and have not had any issues with function. there is a few points I think they could address.
there is no attachment for this to mount to the bike or your clothing. if they supplies a small clip that you could clip on the the bottom hem of you jacket it would be excellent. now I just put it in my pocket, but every once in a while I bump the knob and change the temp. next winter I probably will use some velcro or something to secure it in a better place. but that is my only grip with it.

This Gerbing's Portable Single Temp Controller digital temp controllers draw just enough current to maintain the heat you need.Temp Controllers allow you to adjust for your desired heat. Works GREAT!

A must have for heated gear
Bought this to control a pair of the Ultra Lite Gloves. Rotary knob has several detents for the various temp settings. If you are using heated gear, you really need this to control the gloves as they really get very warm at the maximum setting. The size was appropriate and easy to use wearing the gloves. A digital readout feature would be nice for a bit finer control, but overall worked as expected.

Product seems to work OK, but why is it designed without a built-in clip to attach to clothing? This IS intended for use by motorcyclists, right?
Apparently I'm supposed to buy yet another accessory to hang this on my outer clothing, when there should be a clip or some Velcro arrangement built into this already-expensive-enough controller. Reminds me a little of the way Detroit use to sell cars that needed to be substantially upgraded with better tires, shocks, brake linings, headlights, radios, etc. before they were good enough to really use. Is that Gerbing's approach? One wonders.
