Since I didn't want this to happen again and since there's no gauge that measures the health of the 12v battery, I installed a bluetooth battery monitor. It tells me what the battery condition is now and what it's been historically but for me the most important thing is that it tells me if the drain is excessive and informs me right away right on my smart phone. So long before the car will not start, I'm able to do something about it which in my case would mean simply starting the car to recharge the battery.

Since I installed the bluetooth monitor my battery has never failed but at least I'm prepared just in case.


Can you provide a link to the bluetooth battery monitor?
