Grundig 400-PE Question

Good morning

Does anyone know if there is a means of "hard wiring" this radio (at least to a 12V cigarette plug)?

I know it comes with an AC adapter and it will run on 6 AA batts, but I don't want to keep up with that many batts!

Fair Winds & TIA

External jacks on the side of the radio are provided for earphone (3.5 mm), antenna (3.5 mm) and 9 VDC input.

there are plenty of cigarette lighter adapters for 12v to 9v.. just find one with the right plug and polarity.
