I set up a remote volt meter to monitor our off grid solar battery bank inside our tiny house at any time.

I wanted a way to monitor the battery bank voltage at any time without running outside to check the solar charge controller itself.

I had plans to wire in a 24 volt cigarette lighter socket and plug in a 24 volt meter inside our off grid tiny house. But the socket vanished on me. After months of searching I finally bought a new one for the project.

Outside we have a 24 volt solar power battery bank. From there we have 120 volts AC coming to the house along with a DC 24 volt line. We have a power distribution box inside our off grid tiny house where the electric lines come in.

The 24 volts get converted to 12 volts inside the box using a 24 - 12 volt converter.

I wired in a cigarette lighter socket on the 24 volt DC line and fastened it to the outside of our power distribution box. Then I plugged in a 12/24 volt meter to show the battery voltage at a glance.

This is great because now we have a rough idea of the battery status at any given time at a glance from inside the comfort of our off grid tiny home.
