Don’t risk your multirotor by flying on depleted batteries, this great little battery capacity checker puts an end to guessing how much flight time you have left in your batteries. It can be used to check the battery voltage of Lithium batteries including LiPo, LiFe, Li-Ion, as well as NiMH and NiCd batteries. For lithium types the checker will measure the voltage of both individual cells and full battery voltage, and can also indicate the highest voltage cell, lowest voltage cell and difference between, as well as display the percentage of battery capacity remaining.
Checkout the NEW CellMeter-8 for the additon of Sero / ESC tester and Storage discharge functions.

Please note that for NiCd and NiMH, the checker will only display the total voltage of NiCd and NiMH batteries.
Please note also, that for Lithium batteries the cell checker will only accept standard JST-XH balance connectors.
A LiPo alarm / tester is a must have piece of equipment for any flight box. LiPo batteries require careful management to maximise their life; they can be charged up to 4.20V and discharged down to 3.0V per cell. Any lower or higher in voltage and the cell will almost certainly be irreversibly damaged (reduced capacity or total inability to accept a charge). Furthermore, a damaged cell may become unstable which can be very dangerous (increased fire risk). A LiPo alarm / voltage tester is therefore an essential piece of kit to monitor the status of your individual cells and avoid damaging them. Most pilots who fly without a telemetry feed use a LiPo Alarm on board their craft to alert them as to when it's time to land - it's recommended to set your alarm to 3.6V to give you enough time to land safely.

DHL is a good option for larger consignments and remote locations such as Northern Ireland and Isle of Man. All high value orders are fully insured and will likely require a signature on delivery.
FREE shipping in the UK on orders over £99 (this is a signed for service and insured to a maximum of £40). Please note that the offer only applies to orders with a total weight under 1Kg and that a few products are exempt from the offer, such as LiPo batteries.
International Postage: We are based in the UK, but ship to most worldwide destinations. Postage rates are calculated by the weight and shipment location, the price is quoted during the checkout. Low value order can be sent by Air Mail, but are not insured. Higher value, heavy goods will be sent with DHL or an alternative courier.
