well to each his own. ive never had a problem going directly to battery, but just for fun, ive also bought cig. lighter adapters for my radios, just to see... and i havent had a problem with those either.
personally i dont like any more wires that i need, and taking up the cig. lighter is just something else in the way. but like i said, to each his own. both have worked fine for me!
