Inexpensive voltage meter
« on: August 29, 2014, 06:35:12 PM »
Not sure if its been posted before, (sorry to repeat if it has) but for those who have Battery Tender type chargers,  they offer a plug in meter that could help monitor battery condition (when parked) or charging voltage when running.  Not too pricey and easy to use.
