I decided to buy this as I was having trouble with the voltage in my car, with certain things shutting down. I decided to give this a go after reading the reviews and considering how cheap it is.
After I received it I plugged it straight into the cigarette port. It allows me to read both the resting and the running voltage of the car brilliantly. It allowed me to diagnose a problem with the battery, with it not taking charge as it should. It put my mind at rest that the alternator was okay as it was running at above 14v when running. After changing the battery I keep this plugged in to monitor the voltage as I drive which is great.
It looses one star as the top part has become lose and it cuts out the screen as I go over bumps. Quality is not great as you can imagine, however for the price you can't really go wrong.
In terms of accuracy do not expect too much. Since buying I have bought a multimeter and have compared it to this. I have found it is quite different, however it gives you a near figure to work with and as said, gives you voltage while you drive.
Would recommend and buy again.
