Power supply f/LiPo charger? 12v battery

Some people simply use a car/tractor/motorcycle battery (trickle charging when not in use) as a power source with no problem. Others claim the need for yet another gadget i.e. power supply. Charger is from hobby lobby and battery is 3 cell,1320 thunder power. Please help me seperate fact from fiction.

A 12 volt Gell Cell 7 amp. battery and matching charger ,600 mA ,will work well for use both at home and the field. These batteries are commonly used in support boxs for glow powered modles. They are also used in UPS / BackUp power supplies for computers.
