If the battery is left to fully discharge, when stored for a prolonged period or excessively drained, the battery can be ruined.
This wired 12 volt battery monitor panel prevents that condition measuring the battery voltage and alarming when the 50% point is reached. It is ready to install, comes with instructions. Alarms when battery voltage drops to the minimum voltage level of 11.5 Volts, the point when the battery must be recharged to prevent permanent damage.
A two position switch, allows you to
1. monitor the battery without the voltmeter being on,
2. monitor the battery with the voltmeter on but turn the alarm off.
