The Gerbing Extension cable is an accessory that is specially designed to use additional cable length between the battery cable and our 12 volt Gerbing Heated Clothing and heated gloves. The extension cable has a maximum length of 50cm, including the plugs. The extension cable is easy to use and lightweight.
The coaxial female connector can be connected to both the battery cable and the accesory plug. The straight plug (male coaxial connector) can be connected to the 12 volt Gerbing heated product or to a temperature controller.
In some situations, you need more than 50cm and that is why we developed a coil cord extension cable. The coil cord extension cable is a little bit heavier but because you can stretch it (up to 100cm) you can easaly heat up the clothing of a passenger.
The extension cable is most commonly used in the following situations:
- In some vehicles, the battery cable is connected in such a way that you cannot connect the 12 volt heated clothing because of a shortage of wire. An extension cable will solve that problem.
- When you want to connect a heated jacket and/or heated pants directly to the battery cable without a temperature controller there is often a shortage of wire, since the temp controllers have about 35-40 cm extra wire which you will find short when not using them.
- When you use a 12 volt heated jacket and/or 12 volt heated pants connected to 12 volt portable batteries like the B12V-5200 or the B12V-8000. You can carry the battery in a special fanny pack and with the coil cord extension cable you can have the pack anywhere around the waist.
