Agreed, especially for short duration loads. The only real risk is that your alternator will heat up at higher load levels. The really big heavy duty units can run continuously at full load, but not your typical alternator which expects a big load for a little while as it recharges the battery, and then dropping off. So not a lot of time to really heat up. And with the temp sensor installed, the charge rate will back off if the alternator gets too hot.
