I like the LASCAR. It is $32.83 at allied electronics.

It is tiny, waterproof, requires one small hole for mounting.

Is it backlit for night time use?

No, this one is not, but they make backlit ones, more expensive though. With these digital volt meters, the third digit is constantly changing. I find this distracting. I like to have a means of checking the voltage, but do not want constant info , as with the stock instruments, so I like the voltmeter out of my line of sight, and am content to turn on my dash light to check it at night. I have the lascar on my v strom, not my ST. I check the voltage on m ST via my GPS. I can also set that for a low voltage alarm.

Has it ever gone off? I've never seen less than 13.8v on my ST....

It goes off when I lose power to the gps, and when I flatten my battery doing silly things, like leaving the PIAA 910s on when the bike is not running.

Yeah, I watched in horror once as a fellow ST rider demonstrated his lighting to a friend, with the bike on tickover the upgraded low beams, 910's and moto lights only took a minute or two to over power the charing system but the bike eventually stalled and refused to restart.

BTW they don't respond well to 'bump starting' .......

Why would you wire it so that your PIAA's could run off your battery and not be switched?

Silly girl.

Uh-oh, now I'm in for it!

One of my finer moments, doing my rally paperwork by the light of my PIAAs, which required the key to be on AND the PIAA switch to be on, but the engine noise was 'distracting', and I was only going to be a few seconds..... Won't be doing that again.

Because of the power draw, Mark Reis made sure that mine were on switched power but, we made sure that my "Littlelite" map reading light was on unswitched.

But I hear you. There were times where I needed lots of light for photo bonuses late at night. I used my headlights and PIAA's while running my bike. Even then, I didn't let it go too long because at idle, the alternator couldn't provide enough power for those PIAA's for very long.
