Very nice and small. – Digital Multi-cell Lithium Battery Voltage LCD Display for R/C Models Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Measures 2S to 6S LiPo batteries (up to 25Volts). Nice bright display.
Cons:
Can't measure single LiPo cell. Minimum is 2S (it take power supply from second cell). The error is up to 40mV (0.04V) on some cells.
Measuring results of my sample:
1C -> measured 4.18V, show 4.16V
2C -> measured 4.17V, show 4.19V
3C -> measured 4.18V, show 4.22V
All -> measured 12.54V, show 12.6V
Other:
The accuracy may be better. Buzzer for low battery will be good. The bottom left pin when display is top/right is black wire (ground).
Bottomline:
Buy it. The accuracy is enough for fast field testing of battery.
