Voltage drop calculator now available

For those interested in 12 volt systems you may be interested in the Voltage Drop Calculator I've written and is now available at www.VoltageDropCalculator.com.au.

The Voltage Drop Calculator enables people to calculate how much the voltage will drop in a length of wire given the length, cross section and current being passed through the wire. For 12V systems too much of a voltage drop may mean certain appliances won't work. For example a TV we have when the voltage drops below a certain level the sound no longer works but the picture does.  That's something I didn't expect to happen.
