Yes, agreed. The problem is that some people, obviously not the intelligent variety who populate this forum, think 12v is full and that 0 v is empty.

Yes, an expanded scale type is very useful, but no substitute for a device which actually measures capacity.

I thought most sounders and chart plotters had a voltage read out which is infinitely more accurate that a voltmeter.

I really can't see carrying a hydrometer on board and I hope most of us use sealed lead acid anyway!

It would be fairer to say the less techinally minded than not intelligent.

inline....Academic inteligence, technical inteligence and common sense are three quite different things! I know quite a few academically brilliant scientists with very little common sense, and an equal amount of brilliant managers with zero technical knowledge.
