I have used a Xentrax Battery Monitor for 5 years and happy with it.

They are out of production, but here is a new one for half price on ebay:

Xantrex microprocessor controlled LCD Battery Monitor - eBay (item 150543708007 end time Jan-11-11 19:12:18 PST)

I have moved from the Xantrex family of battery monitors to the Victron BMV 600 series. BMV-600S and BMV-602S - Victron Energy Easier installation and less money.
