Ok I profess to be an electrickery dummy.

Where you have multiple batterys in a 4wd or boat, (i have 7 between the truck and boat & trailer winch etc) whats the best way to monitor their individual condition at a glance?.

Is there any kind of gauge (needle or l.e.d.) that just says full half full or empty etc for the idiots like me out there or does one have to have a separate gauge for volts amps and hertz or something for each battery? (thus 21 dash gauges to monitor 7 batterys?)

There has to be a simple battery condition gauge for electriclery simpletons like me - anyone know of such a thing?

Cheers

Hi Flywest, should have mentioned, I have one and it seems to work fine for what I need.

It can also be used to check the charging from your engine. Check the instructions when you get it.

I think the asking price of $399 would buy a replacement AGM battery.
But, will admit it looks good :-)
