Default CB Battery connection

I have an SPOD and am wondering if it's better to wire the CB to the battery or and SPOD.

To the battery. I would use an SPOD only for high Amp circuits that need a relay. Technically I'd never put an SPOD in my Jeep to begin with, but that's a different story.

Anyway, why spend all that money for a 2 Amp circuit that can be hardwired and controlled by the CB's power switch, or controlled by a 15 Amp Contura switch?
