Superb & simple  Time owned: more than 12 months
We have all seen this type of kit before - But this is very “smart”, low cost and works superbly.
It uses a PIC – programmable IC to do all the smart bits. In a nutshell, it gives the usual visual indication of voltage, plus an audible and flashing indication if the battery/psu goes either too high or too low. The kit is cheap about USD$9.00, easy to put together. The current circuit board has silk-screened voltages marked on it for 11 to 14 volts.
