Where is car battery voltage?
 
Is it available at all? There is no physical gauge and EVIC doesn't seem to have anything battery related. Am I missing something?

Nope no indicator at all. I guess when you go to unlock or to start and nothing happens that is your indicator!

you should get a battery symbol on your dash joe. am thinking you could see it if you just turn the jeep on but dont start it yet and look at all the lights on the dash........

How does listening to the radio (say at 20% of max volume) affect battery level if engine is off? Can anyone give me some frame of reference? Like battery will lose x% of the charge after y hours and will be dead after z hours?

I often leave radio on for 4-5 hours at a time while camping or fishing. Probably could go longer but don't want to get stranded in the middle of nowhere so I crank it up for about 10-15 min every once in awhile. Never had any hesitation or weak turnover either with that type of use and batteries still last the usual 4-5 years.
