Product Description

This simple yet extremely handy device gives a digital display of exactly how much charge your panels are actually producing. It has been difficult to measure this without special equipment or expert knowledge - until now!

The device is easily installed and provides you with all the key ratings of your solar panels in real time. This is a perfect companion to our range of KICKASS® Portable Solar Panels but can be used with any type of solar panel as well.

Installation is easy - the watt meter has two Anderson plugs and is installed in-line between your solar regulator and batteries/load.

Simply connect the solar panel regulator's output to the "source" side of the watt meter and connect the battery/load cabling to the "load" side. Once there is power flowing through, the device will initialise and show you a full range of ratings including:


  • Current (Amps/A) at the present moment

  • Voltage (Volts/V) at the present moment

  • Power (Watts/W) at the present moment

  • Total Amps (Amp hours/Ah) since device initialised

  • Total Power (Kilo Watt hours/KWh) since device initialised

  • Highest Voltage Maximum (Vm) since device initialised

  • Highest Power Peak (Watt Peak/Wp) since device initialised

  • Highest Current Peak (Amp Peak/Ap) since device initialised

The Solar Watt Meter only requires a tiny 7mA draw to operate so there will be no significant reduction in your power production during usage.

Please note this product is not intended to be permanently installed inline and does not have the long term memory of a battery management system.

Can I increase the brightness/clarity?

21 February 2019
This is a unique and great piece of measuring equipment-necessary for solar to battery to accessories management. However the display on mine is mostly unreadable in daylight (which is when you use it most). Is there anything that can be done to change this? Otherwise it would be a 5/5!

DCwatt meter arrived as promised, well packed, and has performed as described.

exceptional service once again

8 March 2018
bought the KickAss DC Watt/Amp Meter with Anderson Connectors from Australian direct, once again no surprise, the thing was here virtually before I paid the bill, I found it well put together, solid and all the detail that is needed to see what my portable panel is putting out or has put out and the charge condition of my batteries, invaluable piece of mobile kit. doesn't replace the onboard battery monitoring system and it is not designed to, but what it is designed for it does very well and that is portability. well done Aussie direct and well done Kickass, a big thumbs up from me.

I have just purchased this great little Anderson plug DC watt amp meter tester, I recently had problems diagnosing a couple of electrical problems with solar and car charging to my batteries, a friend of mine advised me that these were available, so after purchasing it I have solved a multitude of faults. Thanks Kickass, great product.
