I just got my new volt meter for checking vehicle's battery and charging system. A simple plug-in cigar lighter socket device. Works on 12 to 24 volts. It is just a simple LED volt meter , plug it in. Under ten bucks.
I got it for my 64 truck as it only has a red light on dash, wanted a better indication of what is going on. I tried it on two trucks and seems to work OK.

Good for checking but will run battery down if left plugged in......unless your lighter turns off with key. Good tool.

A few years ago I found this one at Walmart for about $7 (I think). I have had good luck with it. There is a green/yellow/red LED on the front in addition to the display that gives you a vague idea without having to actually see the display while driving etc. It has come in pretty handy for me.

My 2007 GMC truck has an analog voltmeter.
My 2018 XT5 has a digital voltmeter.
