In my view, a very inaccurate meter is of less use than putting a battery in a plane, running up the throttle, and checking voltage under load with a wattmeter.

If used as you indicate - to monitor packs over time, I concede that it can have some utility as long as you understand that a portion of the witnessed change in IR could be due to increase in balance connector contact resistance.

Personally, however, it would drive me bonkers as there's really no way of knowing whether the lipoly cell is deteriorating or the balance connector is deteriorating. But then I'm perhaps less tolerant of such things than most...
