In order to protect your car battery from full discharge or short circuit, you should definitely take a closer look at the incredibly effective device called Stop Discharge!

But if a breakdown occurs and you have turned on the alarm, then the Stop Discharge will not disconnect the battery until it is completely discharged! With this protection device, you can not be afraid of a complete discharge of the battery, even if you forgot to turn off the headlights!
