I can see how this meter might be useful to sort the good from the bad packs at the hobby shop before purchasing! I.e., confirm (or more likely, refute!) the C-ratings on the packs.

Which leads to a question...

Can you power the meter with one pack, and measure the cell resistances of another? The relevance of this question becomes obvious when you consider that new packs often have no connector on the main discharge leads, but the balance taps are accessible. Can I use an old pack to power the meter, and measure the IR of the cells of another pack without issue?
