I currently run a power line from the car battery directly to a radio console power strip. I installed a Powerwerx ITS-12 Timer/LVD Battery Guard. This device would measure the voltage of the electrical system when the vehicle was running and when the ignition switch was turned off, sense the lower voltage level, start its timer and divorce power from whatever I was powering. It worked as advertised for almost a full year. I've gone thru 3 of them. The first died within the years warranty period and was replaced free of charge. The second one died just like the first and was also covered. The third one just reciently died within the warranty but I've had it with this device. It's time to try a competitors offering. I just haven't found anyone building something that does the same thing. Again, what I'm looking for senses when the ignition is turned off and stops power from going past itself to feed my console. When the ignition is turned back on, the device then allows the console to be powered. For a better description, the ITS-12 spec sheet spells it out. When it worked it worked great. But I have a problem with its longevity. I need a substitute-any ideas?
