Simple LED Volt Meter


A simple LED Volt Meter using Zener diodes as switches. If it is connected to a 12 Volt battery it shows the following indications.

 

Flash LED Blinks – Above 13 volt – Fully charged
Green LED lights – Above 11.8 V
Yellow LED lights – Above 11.5 V
Red LED lights – Above 10.6 V

If all LEDs light, battery voltage is above 13 volt and fully charged
