Battery Condition

Can somebody advise me on this.

When I am running, the data screen on my fishfinder shows the battery at
14v. Is this good or bad. What should it be.


Regards


Roy

As long as it's showing around 12v or above it's fine.

The higher the better - it's just showing that the battery is charging fine.

If it starts going to a low voltage, it wont be far off time for a new battery.

The fully charged Voltage for a lead acid accumulator is 13.8v therefore yoyr 14v when running is right. moderm electronics will have voltage stabalisation in built because the internals will run on a lower voltage in the 5v region.
