Opportunity to learn from my mistake:
I put a digitaly tuned radio (with station presets) in my pos-gnd Sprite
(hidden out of sight). Normally you have two distinct +leads, one
switched with the ignition key for radio operation, and one permanent +,
so that the radio remembers the station presets and the time (built in
clock). I hooked up both leads to permanent +, and the other lead to
permanent -. Amazingly, the display,
which is then always on, showing the clock, uses so much juice that after
1 or 2 weeks of not driving, the battery (new) is dead.
I then had to connect the (-) lead to switched (-). Now of course, every
time I turn the ignition off the radio forgets what station I was
Moral: Buy an old-fashioned mechanical radio! No presets, but at least
when you turn the key, you'll hear your favorite station rather than
"ssshhhhhhhhh" or whatever they have on 87.5 in your area =:-)
