Selector switch or Automatic Relay

Since I'm currently in the middle of cleaning up my electrical system and the panels at the nav desk, I'm trying to decide whether to go with one of the automatic charging relays rather than the current switch I have.

The postives I see for the ACR would be a smaller footprint, not worrying about switching batteries, and a much smaller switch at the nav desk. On the negative side, I have to buy it, and it is a piece of electronics, so eventually it will fail.

With the "normal" 4 position switch, I already have one, it isn't as likely to fail, but it has a much larger footprint.

So, I'm wondering if any of you use an auto combiner and if so, how you like it, and how well it works?

Thanks,

John
