Best gauge: AMP or VOLTS?

Which of the two is the better gauge for monitoring the battery and charging system?
Amp gauge or voltage?

Re: Best gauge: AMP or VOLTS?

IF you're measuring amps, you're measuring current flow, which will change dramatically depending on where you measure from. Whereas voltage will be pretty much the same (minus any Voltage Drop you have) everywhere.

Why do you need to monitor your battery and charging system? I ask because I'm running over 1000WRMS of amplifiers, and I don't see the need to keep a close eye on the system.
