Minn Kota® Battery Meter
Power On !
A good friend of mine got a 14 foot aluminum boat this past fall. It is his first boat, and is powered by a Minn Kota 50 pound thrust electric trolling motor. The first few times he went out, he did not stray far from the launch site, as he was worried he would get too far out and not have enough power left on his battery to get back in. So, I surprised him and bought him this battery meter so he could check his charge level whenever he felt he needed to. This is a great little meter. It fits easily into any tackle box, glove box, pocket or any compartment you've got. It does a pretty good job of measuring how much charge you have left, is quick and easy to operate and is an overall good product for a good price. Now my buddy feels safe enough to venture out a little farther from the dock. He can quickly check his charge now, and loves the meter. In my opinion, any small boat with an electric trolling motor should have a decent battery meter on board. Power on!

I like it
I was a little hesitant to order this after reading the reviews but knowing how great Bass Pro is about taking back returns I ordered one. It's great. Easy to use without a lot of wires hanging out. It will light up all the lights when the voltage passes 13.4 volts. 3 lights is a full charge however.

I,ve used this meter twice since I recieved it. My second car has not been used much this winter and when I checked it the meter only showed a half charge. I checked the water level and it was low. filled battery and charged for an hour and the meter then was reading 3/4 full. I plan on getting a lot of good use checking my batteries in my boat. Great device and price. No local auto part store had anything close.

Don't Waste Your Money!
I purchased this meter and the first one would not light up at all. BPS sent me another one. The replacement would only show 2/3 (3 lights) full after a full charge on a MK charger. I even took it to Wal-Mart and tried it on two new batteries like my trolling motor battery. It too only showed a 2/3 full charge. MK, you need to take this off the market and provide a quality product.
