I ran a #10 feed from the battery to the cockpit to the center console above the 
radio in my honda.  There is a little snap in block there (for a feature that 
the car did not have) that is just the size of the 4 port snap in:


Now I have 4 ports of power any time and I plug my radio, 500 watt inverter and 
some other things in there.  I have a powerpole to female cig-lighter plug that 
allows one to plug in convential car enabled devices.
