    Was wondering where there is a power source
    That comes on and off with the key. My cb
    Is hooked straight to the battery. And I forget to
    Turn it off. Sue me I'm a damn stoner!
    Anyway is there a easy power source out there
    That will only be on when the ignition is?
    Thanks.

    Can I just splice it into one of the lighter
    Or should I do away with the lighter all together?

    You can do either. Just keep in mind that the power point socket current rating will be reduced by the amount of the current draw of the CB.

    you could put a relay on the cigeratte lighter I think...

    you wouldn't take away from the 100 watt rating of your cig lighter

    I put a solenoid on the ignition. It triggers when the key is on. works fine also added a blue sea fuse block. Looks like a pound of spaghetti under the hood but works great and safe.
