Looks pretty cool but what's it for?
So you can keep track of the electrical system.

in case you did not know, the alternator recharges your battery and keeps the electronics in the car going. What can happen is the alternator can start to fail and still be running. On my last car, I noticed that the voltage was only running at about 8 volts. When I got home I had it checked out and yup, it was dying.

This is the one I have:

But there are a lot of different options:

Now your car has a indicator if it gets too low, but by the time that light goes off you might be stranded.
