Gerbing has a wide range of batteries so that every product can be used autonomeously with a 12 volt battery. For the 12 volt heated clothing range we have especially developed the most powerfull battery possible. The B12V-5200 and the B12V-8000 which has a stunning 8 Amps of power inside to keep your heated clothing warm for hours and hours.
The B12V-5200 and the B12V-8000 are relatively bigger batteries and are optional batteries to power your heated garment. The 5200 and the 8000 battery comes with a handy belt which you can put around your waist so you can store the battery. The B12V-1200KIT and the B12V1900KIT are especially designed to use for the hybrid heated gloves in the 12 volt heated gloves section. The B12V-1200/1900 can be stored in a designated pocket in the cuff of the longer gloves like the XR-12 heated gloves and the T-12 heated gloves. On the highest setting they will give the heated gloves power for about 1 hour, and on the lowest setting up till 3 hours.
The B12V-5200 and the B12V-8000 are designed to extend the heat output on the heated gloves or heated socks, but also can they power a heated jacket. Note that the 12 volt heated jacket liner is designed for motorcycle use, so will give an enormeous heat output when not riding in cold temperatures or high speed. That also means that the 6,5 Amps drawing heated jacket will be empty in 45-50 minutes when connected to a B12V-5200 which has 5,2 Amps. With the 8 Amps battery it will give you aproximaly 75 minutes on full heat. On the lowest setting up till 3 hours. Both the 5200 and the 8000 have a remote controle included so you can adjust the temperature with a simple push on the button.
Due to the fact that the weather changes every day and that people use our heated clothing for extended periods we have developed temperature controllers so you can control the heat. We have controllers for all 12 volt products. Heat is very personal and therefor we always recommend that you use a temperature controller when you use one or more of our heated products.
NOTE: The 12 volt controllers cannot be used on our 7 volt products. New in our collection is the 7 volt junior controller which can be connected directly to the 12 volt battery cable of a vehicle and converts the 12 volt output of the battery to 7 volt power of the 7 volt heated gloves.
For all our 7 volt products we have developed one battery. This is our B7V-2500 battery. This battery has a built in temperature controller with four temperature settings. The lower you set the temperature the longer the battery will last. With one charge you can use the battery for about 2.5 till 8 hours.
All our 7 volt heated gloves, 7 volt heated jacket and 7 volt heated socks have a battery kit included. A kit contains two batteries and one dual charger. Our 7 volt heated specialty products like the heated seat cushion, heated back wrap (kidney belt) and the heated handwarmer only have one battery and a charger included. The batteries can be recharged hundreds of times. To increase the life of the batteries you need to charge the batteries ones a month in the period when they are not in use.
The 7 volt junior controller is our newest product. This controller has been developed to use our 7 volt gloves and 7 volt socks with a 12 volt battery of a vehicle. If you connect the 7 volt junior controller to a 12 volt battery cable than the controller will convert 12 volt into 7 volt. This way you will not have to use the portable batteries (B7V-2500). The 7 volt junior controller looks and works the same as our 12 volt junior controller. The controller also has four temperature settings.
NOTE: The 7 volt junior controller can only be used on 7 volt heated gloves and 7 volt heated socks. It is not possible to connect 12 volt gloves and 12 volt socks on the 7 volt junior controller.
