Lightbulb Battery Life

I have burned through 2 batteries since purchasing my SVT 6 months ago. Does anyone know how to make the cigarette adapters only hot when the ignition is in the on position? I have a radar detector that seems to stay on even though the car is off. I dont want to have to plug and unplug it every time I get into it. There has to be a way to change the "always hot" thing no?

You could put a switch on the line. Although then youd have to remember that instead. Thats the easiest way I can think of. The wires for the CLA are right next to the stereo head unit, when it's removed. I think that that (or anything else) is a lot of work.
