Default Battery checker w/ load ?

Is there anywhere I can buy a lipo checker that allows you to not only check each cell put you can put a load on it as well?

Flying a plane that shows a good battery but has no power can be a disaster.

I've tried using my H9 battery checker but only works up to 12 volts !!

You would need a watt meter like the "Watts-Up" watt meter.

12V light bulbs can be used as a load. Just about any of the cell checkers work for seeing the cell voltages.
