OK, I think I get it. You made a series connector for the "power" connectors, then plug in the balance connectors as drawn, putting 22-24V in to the "power source" side of the meter, correct? Too bad you have to "balance" the balancer so to speak; they should include a calibration routine in the instructions. It also is giving me an "over-volt" alarm on a charged pack which measures 12.42V on my EFlight Power Meter. Don't know what's up with that yet; cell voltages read 4.17, 4.20, & 4.24 on the new meter. I'm balancing that one now & will check it again when it's done. I think it's time to pull out the trusty old volt-ohm meter & double check some cells. If this little doohicky works as advertised, it's a good deal; if not, it was under $30, so it was worth a chance....we'll see! Thanks for the help!
