SOC Meter

Anyone know of a vendor for a vendor of AH meters to show condition of 12 V batteries? Looking for panel mount, no voltmeter etc alternatives. Thanks

Do you need a certified one? I went on line and found a light that glows Green when the battery is fully charged, flashing green when it is down 25 %, flashing red when down 50% and steady red when down 75%. Since I keep a battery under the seat and charge it in the hanger only, it works great for me to tell if I need a charge prior to the flight, but I leave a 4 rate battery tender on it. I got if from a guy in England, off Ebay for $17 delivered.

This may be too large for your panel but you may be able to modify it.

TRI-METRIC BATTERY METER
NEW Model 2025

"The Tri-Metric keeps a running total of power into or out of your battery and displays the present level of charge."
It is 5" x 4-1/2"

This one looks better....smaller and only $59.

Electric Bike & Scooter Battery & Amp Hour Meter
More Than Just An Amp Hour Meter Or Watt Meter
The "Watt's Up" electric bike & scooter battery & amp hour meter tells you everything you need to know about electric bike and scooter operation and can be the most valued of your electric bike or scooter accessories. Motorized wheelchair and motorized bicycle owners will love it too.

Use the Amp hour (Ah) and Watt hour (Wh) measurements as a "fuel gage" for range so you don't get stranded. They're much more accurate for this than voltage measurements or LED "Battery Indicators".

Measure charge consumption (Ah & Wh), motor Amps, battery voltage and efficiency, power usage and troubleshoot hard to find electrical problems with the peak Amps & Watts and minimum voltage measurements. The peak and minimum measurements also help you verify safe operation of motors, controllers and batteries.

Helps you evaluate the effect of component changes and tuning.

Try our meter simulator and see how it works.

"Watt's Up" works with your 12, 24, 36 or 48 volt battery up to 60 V. Lead acid, SLA, NimH, NiCD and Lithium ion and Li-Poly or Lithium polymer batteries are all compatible.

"Watt's Up" does it all. You'll wonder how you got along without it.

See Watt's Up display animation
It measures:

Peak Amps, peak Watts, and minimum Voltage ("sags")

Easy To Use
Connect it like jumper cables between battery and motor controller. Plus to plus, minus to minus. Or use a "3-wire" connection (e.g. for handlebar mounting) so only two wires need to carry high current. "Watt's Up" is supplied without connectors so you can connect it however you like.

Better than a multimeter because of higher current limit, real time calculation of power, Amp hour and Watthour measurements, capture of peak Amps, peak Watts and voltage minimums and does so with much lower shunt resistance.

Summary of Features
Low, 0.001 Ohm insertion resistance
Small size and lightweight - 2.8" L x 1.7" W x 0.83" D, 2.3 oz.
Full manual with electrical tutorial
Made in USA to ISO 9001 (like Hewlett Packard uses) quality standards
One Year Warranty
Specifications
See more detailed Amp meter specifications.

Example Connections
See Bike Meter connection diagrams.

Power Options
"Watt's Up" draws very little current (~ 0.007 Amps) from your main battery. Or you can choose to power it (using our auxiliary power connector cable) with an external battery or power source. The auxiliary power source can have a wide voltage range. Statistics are maintained until all power sources are removed.





Supplied without connectors.

"Watt's Up" comes in three colors. (pop-up window).

"Watt's Up" model: WU100, Version 2

Dennis,

The "Watts Up" looks very interesting. Do you know of its' being used in an airplane such that a 337 might be available ?
