Question Gerbings portable dual-temp controller question

I can't find the manual, and neither tech support nor the website is able to answer my question.

One of the outputs is for the jacket, and the other for the gloves, but I can't tell which is which. Tech support said the regulated output is identical, but I recall reading somewhere that the output for the gloves was lower than that for the jacket, and that the black knob controlled the lower output for the gloves, and the grey knob a higher output for the jacket.

Can somebody look in their manual for the controller and confirm or deny that for me?

Thanks!

This is the controller:

The outputs are identical. Use them however you see fit. Both cycle full input power for a fraction of each second as determined by the knob setting.

Greywolf,
Thanks for the information. I just purchased Gerbing heated gloves with the dual controller, and had the same question.

Pardon my ignorance, but does the wiring attached to the battery draw any current when not used? The reason for the question is that I have the Twisted Throttle electrified tank bag to be able to charge my phone while riding. I do make sure to take the bag off when the bike is not running, as I was told the bag still draws from the battery.

It's all about load for direct connections to the battery. If any load is connected it will draw. Wires alone will not. If a charger is connected, it depends on the design of the charger. Put an ohmmeter on the leads to the charger to make sure it reads infinity. If the charger is in the bag and you take the bag off, it's moot. It can't draw if it isn't connected.
