Another bonus is that you can add a rigrunner to your car. I have a small 
rigrunner mounted under the drivers seat with a big cable running straight from 
the battery (fused at the battery of course). I can take any 12V powered device 
from the shack and run it mobile or portable in the car - plug and play.
