Tourmaster Synergy review and question
For Christmas I got a brand new Tourmaster Synergy Heated Jacket Liner. This is the one that comes with the built in 3 heat level controller.
1. Fits very well and has 2 expander panels in side.
2, Controller is included and at no extra charge.
3. Even low heat (of the 3 heat settings) keeps me very warm to about 40.
4, Compared to others (Gerbings etc.) List price of $179 is outstanding and again no need to purchase additional Contrtoller.
5. Even the new controller's lead line is quite short and therefore when it comes out of the side of my Riding Suit I can't see it. Therefore, I feel around to grab and then look down to see what heat setting I am on. (This is the only real negative), and since Low Heat keeps me pretty toasty it is not a deal breaker.
I contacted Tourmaster (customer support was very slow (5 days in answering) and asked if they had either a longer lead for the Controller or an extension available, because of question 5 above.
They answered NO and weren't planning on making any. I then contacted powerlet to see if they had any extensions and there answer was no. TM does not use a standard SAE or Powerlet connector. They have a round 5 plug connector. Does anybody know where I can get either buy and extension, an adapter to an SAE or Powerlet type connector, or have one made?
As stated I really do like the Liner. It is very warm. Very well priced and very comfortable. However the lead on the Controller is (IMHO) too short and I would like an extension if available. Any ideas????
