Are you sure your warmer are not 7.2v??.....sticking 12v from your PS will normally create a fair bit of smoke!!

Why not try plugging to a 7.2V battery pack to find out whether it will give the holly smoke . If it warms up nicely...voala...your warmer is working alright with 7.2V...else.....get a new one.

You can used them with 12v. I've read it on the speedtech website. They are quite a bit warmer with the 12v power supply. The wiring is just probably wrong if you got the magic smoke happening.
