Electrinic cutout

I'm planning on installing an electronic cutout soon and am wondering about the power connection. I've seen some people have routed power from the driver's power seat, cigarette lighter or from the fuse box. If any of you have or had an e-cutout, how did you wire it and did you have any problems?

Doesn't really matter where the 12v connection is connected. As long as its secure. Just be creative. 12v is 12v.

I ran the power off a key-on 12v wire under the dash. Switch was under the steering wheel, so it was fairly easy.
No issues.
Wiring the damn things can be fun though. The wiring should be tucked away from anything hot, and shouldn't need any wire work under the car. The power goes into the switch, then the wiring provided goes to the cutouts themselves.
Straight forward, but make sure you take your time and do it right.
