Could you possibly wire to the heated hand warmers or thumb warmer harness? I would assume that the voltage would be regulated to them and run around the same that is needed for the shield plug?

Most if not all electric shields work on AC power. (disclaimer, don't hold me responsible if I'm wrong!) Just hook it to any AC in your sled. I just hooked mine up last night, had an extra plug on my MXZ that had power right by the oil tank. No battery in mine either. I tested it with a multimeter on AC when the sled was running. Works great! you'll probably never go back to a non heated.

On my 08 switchback it was DC power. My understanding is they work both ways, I tapped into the accessory plug.

Wire into the hand warmers

if you pull the pad off the handle bars and cut into and sauder the wires for your shield to your hand warmers it works perfect that's what I did and i've nerver had a problem.

on most all polaris sleds the yellow wire (anywhere you find a yellow) is a 12 volt power wire, you will find yellow going to lights, and hot grips

You should tie into the hand warmers under the handlebar pad. Make sure you use a test light to find +/- and if your not going to sauder I would probably cut the wires strip them off, get some shrink tubeing and twist your wires together as tight as possible and them shrink tube them but if you can sauder it I would recommend it.
