At what voltage does it start to read 'fair'? I've got a siimple LED system on my carry case but it still shows green when the voltage is below 11volts ... Rolling Eyes

In the 4wd Action New products, Projecta have released a handy looking dual battery monitor which actually displays a voltage. Just what i have been looking for. $179

I've got the Piranha one and all it has is lights No pretty ordinary really. Although it has a wire that you can run fridge etc through it and has automatic cutout for battery protection but not worth what I paid for it.

I think I will try one of these. If it's any good, I'll need another for the Cruiser. The GQ is the work truck so it's the first one

I'm always warey of these LED systems ... you're looks better than most tho' ... mine's just four LED's green, green, yellow red. Even when the second green LED is on the voltage can be below 12volts. Glad I checked before using the bloomin' thing accurately!

affraid
