    LiPo Voltage Checker

    I am looking for a good LiPo battery checker like this. Has anyone used this one or have a suggestion of which one you use? Is the main idea to check the whole back and use the charger to check each cell voltage or is there a hand held version that checks each cell?

    The one linked is one of the best out there... I have several. (I stick them in my pocket and forget they are in there when I go do the wash lol) Upon start up, it will flash through each cells voltage and then flash pack voltage. It also doubles as an adjustable LiPo alarm if you need it.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Thanks Jimmie. I'll definitely order a couple, since they are only $5 lol.

    No problem...
    In my opinion they should be in every LiPo users tool box.

    Do you mainly use it to check the charge? And to make sure they are at storage voltage?

    I use it before I charge, after I charge, before I use it, and after I use it. The reason is pretty simple... you will start to notice patterns... and once one cell in the pack deviates from its normal pattern it is telling you that it is about to puff.

    I love these types of threads. Sounds like a great product but the link does not work and no one even mentioned the product name!
