I'd give Hobbico a call, I'm sure they will sort it out for you.

You can call them at 217-398-0007, they are open 8am-5pm US Central Time.

I'm primarily looking for a watt meter for my small electrics and this sounds like the ticket. I'll see if the local shop has any in stock.

I think you'll like it, it works good on the small stuff, but a guy with a $1000+ heli checked his 6S battery packs and he really liked it - he didn't have a good way to check his battery level at the field. This one will check up to 7S.

Big Power Lead?

When I plug a pack into the big power lead, I can't change the cell count for LiFe?

What am I doing wrong?
4S is the default...

You'll need to use the balance connector to see each cell/change the cell count.

Pack Voltage

I just want to use the meter as a voltmeter at this point and check pack voltage.

So, the item isn't a voltmeter then?

A new question?

I'm using the Power Checker function on small 2S packs.

There is no "AVG", "MIN", "MAX" values on the screens.
The main screen works, but that's it.

It may have something to do with this statement in the manual which I am not sure of -->

"The meter will display and track current, power, and energy data once 500mA has passed through for 3 seconds"

Any thoughts, ideas?

Thanks
Bob
