This page shows small, lightweight LED voltage indicator that is used to monitor the battery voltage continuously: A red LED is used to signal a voltage that is too low to charge the battery (usually a sign for alternator failure), and a yellow one indicates over-voltage (usually due to a defective voltage regulator). As long as this is around 13.6 V (plus/minus about 0.8 V), the charging system is very probably working properly, and no LED is lit. Thus, it is more a "voltage indicator" than a "real voltmeter".
In particular the Africa Twin community is highly interested in this device, since their motorcycles are prone to alternator regulator failure (induced by plug corrosion) ... and, of course, BMW airheads with their always-too-weak charging system ;-)
