Digital DC Voltmeter - Plug In

Voltmeter - Digital DC, plug in - $10.00 (plus postage)

Here is a little jewel we found in our electrical parts box from the boat. It is a DC voltage meter that can be plugged into a DC receptacle and left there. Typically there is such a receptacle near or at your nav station below or on the binacle in the cockpit. This little meter can be pushed into the receptacle and it will display the current voltage just like the panel meters on the boat's electrical distribution panel.


Brand new and high quality. Color: black. Screen digital color: red. Installment: insert it into a 12VDC receptacle. This digital gauge displays the voltage of house batteries in the boat (or the batteries powering the receptacle). With high brightness of LED there is no difficulty in seeing the display.

It is a great little device especially when used in the cockpit where you can see the battery voltage before starting the engine and then see the voltage increase as the alternator starts to charge the batteries. So there is no need to go below to see what is happening with the batteries.

Especially helpful in "quick glance" determinations if it is time to charge the batteries or not. This saves having to get out a VOM meter and probes to measure the voltage as this little device constantly monitors battery voltage and helps you extend and protect the battery and engine life.

Re: Digital DC Voltmeter - Plug In

I can't believe that no one has picked up on this.

Jim unless you get a better offer consider it sold. Just send me PayPal invoice that you did before.

Hope you're doing well,
Rich
