I have one that just plugs into a lighter socket. It was under ten bucks, and it's portable.

here's a picture of it. Sorry, I don't recall where I got it. It says "battery meter" on the front, and "made in china" on the back.
It has a digital meter, and red, yellow and green state of charge indicator lights

Ok... this is weird. I used the droid app to take and upload the pic, and it looks fine on the phone. On my laptop I only see the top third of the pic. So. Here goes again.

I can see it, Jim!
It looks a little like this $6.99 one at Amazon :
