Whether you go with a name-brand like a Fluke, or some cheap one from Home Depot or Radio Shack (they still sell multimeters?), make sure it displays 4 digits. With respect to 12V charge levels, there's a heck of a lot of difference between 12.5 volts and 12.54 volts when you're measuring charge state of your battery bank.
