GPS tracker models like TK915 are also known as gps longlife tracker. Those models are usually not wired with the vehicle battery or ignition.

The TK915 is also known under the brand names TKStar, Juneo, TKMars or Hangang. There is no real difference between these brands, with high probability all from one factory or one OEM manufactorer.

The manufactorer tells about a battery life from round about 120 days, but we could gain about 6 month in our tests (standby usage as antitheft gps tracker in a motorcycle).

The TK915 GPS tracker is announced to be waterproof. We checked that in a night of pure german rain. Nothing happend. The closure cap fits very tight so we dont expect that water can penetrate the GPS tracker in future. If you want to make it 99.99% save just use an additionally plastic bag. Not nice but useful.
