Hour meters that run off 12v instead of internal battery

I was about to get a new hour meter for my 07 KX250 project but noticed that pretty much all of them advertise having internal non-replaceable batteries. This sucks because none of them offer a way to import hours when the old one dies and we have to buy another one.

Anyone know of a good hour meter that can run on 12v?

$11 ones off amazon have a 20,000 hour standby time?

They will outlast your bike. I’ve never heard of one dying because They are turn off when the bike isn’t running.
