Neat Voltmeter for less then $25

Today while at WalMart, I came across this very nice Voltmeter in the automotive section for only $14.95. I bought it along with an auto power outlet and a fuse holder all for under $25!

It has a great back lighted digital voltage display and 3 battery condition lights to tell you when your battery voltage is low, being charged or is full. You can also use it in your cars to check them out as well when needed.

Nice setup - did you happen to see a brand name on the voltmeter.
I like the idea of having lights as well as the numeic display.

Walmarts carry different products by locality - so making a trip to the store is often a lost cause when looking for a specific item.

That's EXACTLY what I have been looking for. A name for the product would be helpful, and better yet the Walmart SKU. Do you still have the receipt?

Would really be great if they had it available in kit form. Would be nice to have a clock/volt meter that matches the black finish of my bikes yet small enough to not stand out. . . Still, good find!

wishing you well

Hold on, I'm reading the reviews on Cruisercustomizing and it appears that it's not waterproof...

The beauty of this gauge is you can easily unplug it and put it in your pocket when if it rains.

I'll probably go with the CruiserCustomizing 5-function gauge for the Wee-Strom. I had one on my KLR and it functioned perfectly. I liked the thermometer function, too, because when riding in the mountains black ice is always a concern.

I'll wire it in with a mini-plug and attach it with velcro so it can be removed when parked for the night or when it rains.
