Finally got my symtec grip heaters on-too hot

I wired the grip heaters into a relay, triggered off the O.E. grip heater connector, so they'd have plenty of electricity. The symtec came with a hi/low toggle switch, but with summer gloves & HB gauntlets they're too hot on low.
Can I use the same type of controller that my W&S jacket uses. I don't see why not, but I thought I'd ask the "collective".

Yes, you can use a controller. I'm using a 12V 8A LED dimmer from fleabay. Under $4 shipped.

Took it out of the box, waterproofed it with electrical tape, and mounted the knob on the cowl.
