MidNite Solar's voltage based battery capacity meter has auto sensing for 12, 24, 36 and 48 volt batteries. This new meter has LEDs that correspond to battery voltage with an accuracy of +/- 1%. These LED indicators show if batteries have received a full charge in various durations; recently, longer than one week, or over two weeks.
Sulfation can be a problem. The MidNite battery capacity meter indicated a lack of sufficient charging that can lead to sulfation. There are settings for Gel, AGM and flooded batteries.
At a glance reading from a distance is ideal for golf carts, forklifts and virtually any other battery powered vehicle, toy or tool.
The MidNite battery capacity meters is voltage based, requires no shunt and needs no calibration. For mobile applications, MidNite's MNBCMS version supplies an extra switch wire. This feature allows the LEDs to be turned off while retaining the Battery Care memories. This wire should be connected through a fused switch to battery positive. This is usually the ignition switch of a vehicle but can also be any type of push button or toggle switch.
Warning: A DC-rated fuse or breaker of no more than 2 amps must be fitted in the positive (Red) line at the battery or power distribution panel. We recommend part numbers 25540 and R16968, and inline fuse holder and 2 Amp ATC type fuse respectively.
