Power in trunk area?

I am installing a smartphone WiFi backup camera. I want constant power to it (while ignition switch is on as opposed to just using reverse light power).
Anyone know if there is a suitable power source in the trunk.
Thanks much.

Don't know how much power you;d need, but it'd probably be pretty easy to tag the trunk-light power.

I've had this browser window open since discovering it... I've some plans... and it might suit your purpose.
