Thanks! Everything was well made on your end, so I had a good base to start from.

It's some cheapy Chinese brand, but I liked the look. Company name varies depending on which seller you're looking at, but mine was by Clenna. Amazon searching "waterproof voltmeter" will bring up lots of similar results with plenty of combo/color options.

(link will likely die someday, but for now: Clenna Waterproof Voltmeter + USB Charger)

Nice. I was looking at using this more "popular" meter:
BikeMeters.com - Digital Voltmeters manufactured by DATEL

Back when I owned the FJR I remember the post on putting one in the mirror...very cool. For my Bonneville I'll likely just make some kind of small panel for it...
As a side note...I was told to get the red meter and avoid the blue meter as it was too bright..

A sliver of window tint would dim that light. Put a voltmeter like that on my friend's Boulevard and used a piece of limo black on it. He's cell phone/camera charging central on rides now. Even had some chick charging a vape pen on it.

It's already come in super handy when my headset died at a bikenight. Charged it up while hanging out, had tunes on the ride back home!


Thanks everybody
