battery cut off switch

Hi
The cut off switch for the battery is faulty and I need to replace it. Are there different qualities of these and what would be a good make? I have looked up on "the bay" and they seem to be around £10. I would not mind spending more if the quality is much better

I have used BEP switches, they are more money but have been excellent, I currently use
BEP Dual Battery Single Engine DVSR cluster - A dual battery isolator cluster with a digital voltage sensitive relay and emergency start parallel switch.

When the engine is started and the start battery voltage reaches 13.7 volts, the VSR engages and then charges both start and secondary (domestic) batteries. When the start battery voltage falls below 12.8 volts (i.e Engine stopped), the VSR disengages and separates the batteries. This system eliminates the possibility of draining the start battery and also protects sensitive electronics (that are powered from the secondary battery) from any harmful engine start spikes.

Hi
Thanks for the quick reply. I will look into your suggestion but I am leaning towards a straight replacement for ease of installation. My engine is an old yam 2 stroke so spikes hopefully aren't as harmful.

I just ordered from eBay an identical looking switch and the knob is removable adding a layer of extra security.

So my switch came today, it is a cheaper Chinese copy of the Hella one I already have fitted and now I worked out that the Hella knob can also be removed by turning it through an additional 45 deg. Duh! I won't be fitting it and can't be bothered to send it back at the price it was.

The key from my caravan motor movers also fits so I have ordered a couple of spare keys which are more suitable to be attached to a floating key fob.
