Is low voltage harming your vehicle?

These are the areas where low voltage has an impact on your vehicle:

Battery – shortens life of battery because you are overcharging when you do have to charge.
Charger – works harder causing premature wear
Motor – causes excess heat making motor run at high temperatures ultimately wearing components.
Controller – loose mapping functions and causes a need for reprogramming, again causing wear to components.
