Yes I think running them directly from the battery is your best bet with large enough gauge wire to handle 4 with a fuse. I would put them in the glove boxes. Four cigarette lighters in the fairing would not look very good IMHO.

imo.... run 1 hot / neg wire to the battery and install a fuse block in the fairing.

Then you have a good junction point in the fairing to direct wire everything else. I would also run a dual USB port in the GB (i did). Check out this thread

and these for the usb ports

I used the dual USB port one shown in this thread. Like 15 bucks or so from amazon.

good luck and post some pics when your done.
