mix matching heated clothing... adapter plug?

I have an older BMW vest made by widder. (thats what the plug says at least)

and I would like to buy the new gerbings microwire gloves....

how would I plug the gloves into the liner? Do they make an adapter plug to go from the widder sae plug... to the smaller round barrel connectors for the gloves?

I assume the gloves would come with a wiring harness with a length of wire for each glove?

anyone have any experience in this?


my vest works great, no controller.. plugs in on the bottom left side of the vest and then plugs into the electric port by my left leg... (on the LT)
would be nice to connect to the vest there and run the wires down my arms to the gloves...
again, not looking for a heat controller... if it gets hot I just reach down and click it off...
most of the time I leave it on .. during winter.
thanks.

If you run wires directly from power to gloves, you can control that separately... that would be my choice.. you will only need another switch.. and make a "Y" in the power source.

I found some connectors / adapters at whitehorse press.

looks like I would need an sae to dc coax adapter..... then a Y connector down to the gloves...

yup.. simple...if you can make your own "Y" that goes up to your shoulders/armpits then down sleeve to the wrist, you can just add that when you are putting on your jacket...sorta like mittens.. it's easy enough to make your own "y"..... wire in parallel...then put your "connector" on the ends...
