I personally wouldn't do that...they claimed it was a 2 or 3 amp (don't recall exact #) requirement, but in reality it can be closer to 4 amps, for some reason. I know this because the 3 amp fuse blew, but 5 did not. Note the wiring it came with and what additional was used is of sufficient size for that load. Mention this, because I would not add that much amperage onto an existing vehicle circuit like the dome light, since there is typically other items on ot that also draw. More often, they are not used all the time at same time, let's say, but could be, so why increase it.
Also, it is pretty simple to run wiring in the X, just use your head on avoiding sharp edges and keep in mind things like wires can move a little here and there, as far as chaffing goes. As in, allow space and slack, although also securing it down.
I ended up running the module to keep the battery from dying, which means running a batt 12v connection, as well as separate ign or acc wire and of course ground. Ended up putting override switch, as well, so that when its parked somewhere with constant movement it won't be on all the time, if desired...works great!
