Spent $38 on meters to monitor house batteries

Got two meters from Amazon today. Hope to wire them so that I can monitor total power put into house batteries and total power taken out of house batteries. As well as instantaneous values. Will show set up once I get them installed in van.

Nice, I'm interested in how this goes. I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the Xantrax Monitor.

Displays wired and installed

Got the wiring done and displays installed tonight and they worked on the first try.
Here are some pics of the console I put them in. It sets on top of my refrigerator. I ran two quick checks. One with a load on the batteries (refrig. running) and one with the charger charging. See below pics. The bridge indicated voltage runs 0.02-0.04 volts less then my Greenlee volt meter, all withing the 1% tolerance specified. Will spend more time with it tomorrow.
