Re: Voltage tester idea
The volt meter should ideally be run directly to each battery with its own wire and should not pull off the "panel". This keeps the monitoring wires free of loads thus no voltage drop other than the mA to power the LCD of the meter which means squat to the wire. Your meter won't have the resolution to even see the load of the volt gauge in terms of volt drop..
That's what I'm installing, except that it's an analog meter.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
