    I'm looking for a 12V battery monitor that will fit in a small toyota button slot -- hoping to add onto left side cubby meso jdm panel. Can either be dual battery monitor (main & aux) or ONLY aux.

    I appreciate the assistance!

    Yes, You suggested the correct one for his setup. I just wanna show him how it looks on the truck, but don't want to confused him since I have a different one.

    I think they’re using a meso custom switch panel to put it there.

    Oops, saw what looks like a Pods switch panel and made the assumption because I think he makes one for those. That’s what I get for answering in a 3rd gen thread. :anonymous:

    Ignition only no switch. When I changed the center console from 4 switch ports and 2 power ports to seven switch ports I used one set of power port wires for this usb/meter so it’s already on an ignition only circuit. I relocated one of the power ports and have it connected to a sub panel that’s always hot to have both usb and 12v access.

    You could, but I have it wired with a switch, so I can switch it on/off whenever I need it to be.

    @BountyOR_VF2 ... do you mind sharing how you did that? I'd like to do the same thing, but the switch I received had no instructions, and I'm fairly new to the game of wiring.

    I'd like to use an Air On Board switch so I can use another spot in the dash, but I'm not sure if that's overkill since they are designed to work with relays.
