Similar to how some have run their headlights directly off the battery, with the light switch only carrying a small amount of current to close the relay.

That's a pretty neat idea. I don't want to cut or splice any wires (the original wiring is in perfect condition), so a relay would be a good way to tap some extra juice "straight from the source".

Any other ideas?
