Thought I'd share a little addition I made to my rig.

This is a perfect sized LCD readout that displays the exact voltage of my rear batteries. I could have built in a 3-way switch to indicate all 3 but my monitor takes care of the front battery reading already so I just used a 2-way.


The LCD panel is $30. P-tap connectors are an absurd $30. I had one lying around that I used and for the other tap I simply picked up 2 cheap leads (not sure what they're used for) and shrink-tubed/taped/mounted them together for a DIY P-tap for pennies. The LCD panel is open in the back so you need to get a small project box (another $5).
