Default VOLTWATCH

Hi All,

Quick question. Will "Voltwatch" work with A123 2cell Rx packs?

no it will not.......

due to the discharge curve of a 123 pack, it won't tell you anything.

VoltMagic On-Board System Monitor
NEW!! Now includes A123 Support!
-
We’re thrilled to introduce the ultimate in integrated monitoring systems for your Radio Gear and Battery Packs. VoltMagic monitors pack voltage, radio glitches, peak low voltage and intermittent system interruptions and will even track and report marginal Voltage Regulator and/or Battery Pack performance under actual flight loads!

-

Up till now you’d have to spend hundreds of dollars and drag along a laptop to get this kind of data on flight safety critical system performance. Ideal for high-drain, high load digital servo applications! If you’ve got an aggressive 3D or aerobatic aircraft THIS device is what you need. Easy to install (just plug it into your receiver), simple to program and it weighs less than an ounce. Reports at the end of your flight the peak low voltage sustained under load, the number (if any) of glitches or 'radio hits' and stores the info for display even after you turn your radio system off! Constant real-time reporting of actual voltage of your system!

-

For use with 2.4 GHz, PCM or regular FM radios systems, 4 cell and 5 cell Nicad or NiMH packs, 2 cell Lithium, including specialized programing options for A123 packs. Works seamlessly in all types of system installations; including regulated systems!

Introductory Priced, Just $39.95 In stock & Shipping Now!!

Hope this helps you, Mike

It handles it just fine and tells you some other cool things. Wouldn't trust my EF Yak to anything else.
