The best place is to run the power lead with an inline fuse directly to the battery, the wiring harness on these machines are not heavy guage. The extra current can cause breakdown in it.

Correct - and use at least 14 gauge wire, if you're intending to use it as a cigarette lighter (which can draw up to 15 amps).
