Default Re: Anyone try this LED battery meter??

FYI

This is what the meter manufacturer states. After Oxfordlawn installs his I'll compare his to my meter readings against the digital meter. Taking the cart to Ft. Wilderness this coming weekend and putting it through it's paces so I should have a another solid comparison.

Specifications:
State-of-the-art surface mosfet circuitry
Easy-to-read Multi-colored LED capacity display
48 VDC
The batteries state of charge is indicated by ten leds
- 5 Green indicates 100% ~ 41%
- 2 Yellow indicates 40% ~ 21%
- 2 Red indicates 20 % - or less
- 1 Red indicates flashes low alarm
When upper LED 's went off in the low battery state, the center red LED will starts to flash . The flash will continue for about five minutes allowing transportation to the charging facility . After 5 minutes of flash, the center LED glows steadily, indicating the depth of discharge has reached the 80% level and should be recharged immediately.
Applications:
Forklift Trucks
Golft Carts
RV's
Boats
Scooters
Electric Vehicles

Scubba that may be a problem because the top Manufacture of golf cart batteries Recommends no more than a 50% discharge before recharging.....
I think everyone here with any experience agrees. You need to find out just where 36.31 volts for 36v and 48.41 for 48v system is on that gauge and forget what they are telling you about 80% draw down. That will shorten the heck out of the batteries life .... Good luck

Good point Scotty

Then the trick is to always keep it in the top 4 Green!

Ideally you find the 50% point by using your voltmeter and checking the pack compared to the gauge ..... and your batteries have a long and happy life

I think that 60% draw down WILL hurt them over time.....

When we go away this coming weekend at Ft. Wilderness it will give me a good opportunity to see where each LED falls as compared to actual voltage and I also will post it back here when we return home.
