How are you all powering your 12v Pit lamps? just a 12v battery or is there a station of sorts you can get ...The Muchmore racing 12 volt lamp says uses 12v power source and has alligator clips...So i was thinking of just using a 12v battery like in my bumpbox...any feedback from you folks?
Thanx in advance

Just hook it up to a 12 volt powersupply. I usually have both chargers , pit light and tire warmer hooked up to one powersupply.

Rivergate bulldog or the Radio Shack 25amp. I have owned both and have no complaints. The Radio Shacks are really nice for the money and have tons of power in a small chassis. They can usually be found in the For Sale section between $50-$75 if you wanna try to find one used.
