You must be getting 12 volts to your headlight or it would be really dim. The hand warmers should get power from the lighting coil that should be 12 volts for running the lights and any accessories. The actual power to the headlights should be regulated so the power goes from the lighting coil through some type of regulator then to the lights so you don't blow bulbs. But a lot of sleds run power from the lighting coil unregulated to the hand warmers, but run regulated power to the thumb warmer so it doesn't melt the plastic throttle lever. that is if you have a separate switch for hand warmer and thumb warmer. And if you have a high and low switch for the hand warmer the low side goes through a resister to decrease the voltage. There was that confusing enough.
