I'm guessing, but most hand-held radios (and cell phones, which are nothing but radio transmitters/receivers) have a lower power output when used on their own batteries. The internal battery voltage is less than your car's. When powered from your car (13.8 volts), the power output will typically be higher. No external power amp needed.
