  • lilliput drains battery

    I had a problem with this for a few months, I had no idea the lcd was the problem though. I didnt figure it out till recently, It killed my battery three times, got it replaced once. I just changed it but I had it wired to the cig lighter. Can anyone tell me what is the cause for this?

    Is the cigarette lighter on when the car is off? If so, the Lilliput is drawing from the battery all the time, causing it to drain.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

          Just because you don't see anything on the screen doesn't mean the screen is powered off.
          The only way you're going to know for certain is to get your multimeter out and check the power draw after teh cigarette lighter.

          Some cars have a lighter that's always on, others have one controlled by ignition.
