Battery Low Voltage Indicator

10,590

This is a simple circuit that was submitted, the purpose was to check the voltage of a golf cart battery that was not in use did not fall below a certain level, if this occurs then the performance of the battery can fall and eventually a new battery may be required. These can be costly, this simple circuit which costs a very small amount will light a LED if the voltage drops below about 11.5v.
