Your 12VDC Battery.
OR, Purchase one of those multi use battery boxes that has an air compressor and tire inflation hose, USB charger, Inverter and best of all a 12VDC cigarette lighter receptacle and Jumper Cables and just plug your 12VDC cable directly into it.

I dont know how may times one of these has come in handy at starting a vehicle or airing up a tire.

Your money will not be wasted.

I got a 12 v male lighter socket plug to male jack plug on ebay for my insignia 12 v LCD TV fits perfectly with the correct polarity. Also noticed on ebay 7 and 9 inch monitors for DVD player's and backup cameras that use 12V and very little current. Thinking about trying the one I bought for my rear view camera in my camper.

My Scamp came with the 5-wire plug shunted into a 4-wire, with a 12v plug attached under the sink area. I put one of those battery setups under the driver's side bench and it's great. I have a water pump, the original lights, and then I plug a phone charger into it for accessories. It lasts me all weekend and then I just take it out and keep it on it's smart charger in my garage when not in use.
