Gerbing 12V Portable Single Temp Controller
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.

Just the right Temp
Love this controller. without it the gloves are on high which can get too hot. The controller allows you to keep the temperature at the perfect level for how cold it is, just a little for chilly rides or all the way up for freezing temperatures. The controller fits perfect in an optional holder which clips on to any belt for easy access to the control knob which can be used while the gloves are on. I highly recommend this controller for anyone that has the Gerbing gloves or other heated products.

Too much heat without it, too little with it.
I used this thing 2 times and just have up on it, there is a lot of extra length and I ride a hondacbr600rr and it just dangles off the side, or I knot it up and it it hangs out like I just shop lifted a dvr player... I personally would rather just unplug the thing when my hands get too hot and when there tingling from coldness just plug it back in instead of useing the power adjuster.... Hope this was helpful.

Gerbing's Portable Single Temp Controller
Gerbing's Portable Single Temp Controller does exactly what it says and controls the temperature of a heating product by gerbing. It works and controls the temp, not much more to say. if you plan on using another gerbing I recommend getting the dual temp controller instead.

Gerbing Single Temp Controller
Have had a chance to use this controller with new Gerbing liner. Works fine but could use stronger detents so setting doesn't change. Also it would be nice if the controller had a clip so u could attach to jacket. Right now it is lying between my legs. Have to fish around to find it while driving.
So I'll give it 4 stars.
