    You need a converter to go from AC to DC.
    At my work, we use a tiny battery charger to test classic car clocks. I don't see why you couldn't use it to power the radio. Just keep the amps low!

    So your gonna hook a cable from your car to your HU thats in your house.?.?You might as well just get a AC to DC converter for the house.
