12V Lead Acid Battery Voltage Monitor


12V Lead Acid Battery Monitor is a simple project which tells you the voltage of your Lead acid battery visually with the help of 10 LED’s.  This project is based on the popular LM3914 IC from Texas Instruments.

The LM3914 senses the voltage level at the input pin and drives the 10 light emitting diodes based on the voltage detected on input connector. Circuit works on same battery, doesn’t not require separate supply input. Jumper is used to select the DOT mode or bar graph mode.
