Having a battery available to connect to when mains go down is a better way to go.  Some circuits are available to show how to do this.  Some simple and some quite elaborate depending on how many raidos or scanners you have to take care of.

With the proper smart charger it is ok to leave on all the time.
Cheap trickle charger can kill batteries.
