Usually we use a battery level indicator along with rechargeable battery to monitor the voltage level. If the Lead Acid battery is deeply discharged below a particular voltage level ,Memory effect develops and the battery never attains full charge later. So it is necessary to monitor the safe voltage level in the battery. A 12 volt Lead Acid battery shows 13.8 volts in fully charged condition and it should not deep discharge below 9 volts. If it happens, immediate charging is required to maintain the health of battery.
This is a simple but useful LED flasher that can be used as power on indicator or along with alarms. Simply you can use it as a Mock Alarm in the gate or door to baffle the intruders. Do this very simple circuit and it can be an evening project for you that take only 10 minutes to complete.
