Who has the best looking volt meter

Ok u know there's tons of different post about volt meter brand and mount location but I'm here asking if some of you guys can post a pic and or brand and location if mounting . I want to add one to keep tabs on the stator output but want it to look nice and clean not ugly and cheap . Thanks troopers

The single colored LED voltage indicators are by far the easiest to mount and work 'well enough' to pick up problems.

I got some really small digital voltmeters on fleaBay, something like 6 of them for $25, for an experiment, and they would really look good, but, they are not designed for rugged use and the blue display cannot be read in sunlight.

I would like to add one also. Do you just run the wires to the battery terminals? Excuse my ignorance.

It works well but in bright sun it's hard to read. I plan to build a shield around it. It's connected to the heated grip plug with an EB adapter.
