Default tire warmers hooked up to motor run in?

I have the LRP comp charger and some tire warmers, question is, can I hook up the tire warmers to the motor run in on the charger and keep them going like that? I cant see any problems with that seeing as though it does give constant voltage and warmers just plug into a bat.

Of course you _can_ do that, there's absolutely no reason why you couldn't. Hell, you can use the Pulsar & a 6 volt lamp to light your work area, if you want to
Another thing is it seems a bit overkill to waste a perfectly good Pulsar for such a lousy job... I'd rather use it to charge batteries and since my batteries usually charge at the same time that the warmers are on - no Pulsar for the warmers

I run my Eagle warmers on my Yokomo MMS. With voltage turned all the way up.. the warmers only pull about 1.84amps.

So say I was to run it at like 10 volts or what ever then would the warmers be fine?

I have the integy warmers. non digital.

how would I hook it up to my power source? do I just put aligators on it and hook it right on?

Just hook up your warmers to a fanbus (computer mod ppl should know whats this) since the rheostat on the fanbus usually varies between 7v to 12v which is ideally what most warmers are configured for when selecting different temperatures (they're either hooked up to a 6 cell pack or to a power supply direct for 2 different temps).

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that each channel of the fanbus (usually 2 to 4 knobs) can be used to control each warmer individually.
