Conventional cars, vans and 4x4's have a 12v system, so all our CB;s can be used in these vehicles, but most trucks and some farm machines have a 24v electrical system.

In the past, if you wanted to use a CB in a 24v vehicle, you either had to use a "dropper" or "reducer" to bring 24v down to 12v or use a pre-dropped 12v outlet in the cab - if there was one.

Now some CB's are being produced with 12v/24v autoswitching which means they can simply be connected to either a 12v or 24v system and be used straight away without the need for a dropper or even switching anything on the set!

This may be of particular interest to anyone with an ex-military 24v Land Rover, as connecting to the battery is the best way to go to avoid potential interference from wipers, motors etc (especially on Land Rovers) - with a 12v/24v autoswitching CB you can do exactly this.
