I am sure there are kits to get as fancy as you want, also.
STOP!

DO NOT use the pig tail that came with the tender.... it is very likely to have thinner gauge wires which could overheat with the increased heated gear amperage. Use a pig tail that is supplied with the heated gear. I recommend the ones from Warm and Safe.

YMMV, just don't melt your harness... you will regret it.
