    New to the EZ Peak Plus 6 - Can you check the voltage without starting a charge mode?

    As it says in the title.

    I know you can press the + Status, while charging to see what the current voltages are, but what about to see what the voltage is, without actually starting a charge ?

    I know I probably need to get one of those little things that tells you..... but in the meantime, is the EZ Peak Plus 6 able to tell you without actually having to start a charge?

    I know you can with the iCharger... and since all chargers tend to have similar key presses for features, try this:

    Plug a battery in... main and balance leads.
    Press stop
    Press the left arrow

    This is how I would do it with my charger.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on the EZ Peak Plus 6. I've gone thru the menu's a fair bit, and am unable to find a way without actually starting a charge. I may be missing something, but it doesn't look there's a way.

    It was a long shot for my post to work... I didn't see anything in the manual; maybe a call into Traxxas will help?

    I have the EZ-Peak Plus. I could not find a way to check the voltage either. I start the charge to see the voltage.

    I just use a FLUKE multimeter. It won't give individual cells but I can do the math. I use it when I am out bashing and at the house to check storage when they sit for a while to keep tabs on voltage.

    Doing the math does not give you an accurate reading of the cells.

    OK let me rephrase. I use the multi meter for reference to total voltage as far as LVC but I monitor individual constantly while charging or storing with charger.
