Kind of a neat gadget:


Looks like they have lead-acid version as well. Replace your voltmeter, get real-time alerts, etc. A claime 1 mA draw, so negligible.

Not affiliated with the company, just seems like something useful.

Now I need to figure out how to download an app to my flip-phone.:rolleyes:

Very smart. I wonder how big it is. I already have a few little boxes like this under the hood.

Seems like a pretty handy diagnostic for the battery and charging system. Looks like it is pretty much hook it up and forget it. The logging feature might be useful as well, to see a trend when the battery is starting to fail. I'd guess it is roughly the size of a pack of cigarettes. I suppose if you are in bluetooth range, would even tell you when you left something on and the battery is getting drained.

Actually slightly smaller
According to the 'net, a standard 20-pack cigarettes is 3.5 x 2.25 x 0.88 inches
According to the specs, this battery monitor is 2.75 x 2 x 0.7 inches

Should be easy to find space for this on the bike. Next to the R/R for instance.

Unfortunately they don't ship to the Netherlands. Here's an alternative that does:
