Question Adding a 12V socket - anyone tried?

Before you shit on me for not searching. I saw the one post where someone added a 12V direct to the battery - that's the easy way.

What I've done in past cars was fuse-tap to the cigarette lighter...

Would this be the best approach here?
2007 Yaris Sedan A/T for what it's worth I put in the larger option battery 650CCA (I believe), as it sits outside & in Canada where it gets freaking cold.

The fact that these came with one 12v socket is pathetic - but I'm not surprised as its such a cheap car.

I bought a 2x 12v socket thingy that install direct to battery, but I want it switched.

I guess I'm looking for; what did YOU use for SWITCHED power to an external 12v socket?

If I don't have to go poking around and save myself 30min in a cold garage, I will hence the questions

Thanks in advance!
