Proclaimed as an "Innovation of the Month" by Motorcycle Consumer News and the "Smart Idiot Light" by another leading magazine editor, this is the smallest and simplest monitoring device available. It's also more than a light that comes on after it's too late; it's a unique and cost effective voltage indicator.A 1/4" (T1 3/4) LED displays voltage levels using colors in a stoplight style arrangement: RED - less than 11.5 volts, AMBER - 11.9 to 11.5 volts, and GREEN - 12 volts and up. Fuse protection, wiring, connector assortment and complete instructions are included. Simple 2 wire installation. Remember, GREEN means GO, AMBER is WARNING, RED means STOP! Designed for installation on bikes with a fairing or for custom installation. Drilling a single 1/4-inch hole is required to install the flush-mount LED in any flat surface near your instrument panel.

I consulted with my coworker, who is a soldering genius, and we decided to replace the LED with a flashing red (he didn't have the correct dual-color LED in the right size) - I lost the "green / yellow" lights but - I didn't care... if I was having a problem, a flashing red light would get my attention better.
It wasn't until I went to install the product with his LED that I realized the original LED was put together without care for where it was going to be mounted, it had too much heat-shrink that overlapped the LED, then each lead was also heat-shrink wrapped that made the whole LED too thick to fit into the hole/mount. Which lead to the break. My friend's version snapped into the mount PERFECTLY, the 1st time! Like the original one SHOULD have, if there was any quality control to make sure it did so before it was shipped!
But now, it works GREAT! I think I actually like the Off if everything is OK, and Flashing Red if voltage drops 12v more than I would have the original Green/"Yellow"/Red!
I was very upset at the quality control and the fact that it caused me to break it, but thanks to my friend- I am just annoyed now at the time spent, the experience, and wasting my friend's time to fix it. (Posted on 12/16/14)
