Default testing 6v system ?

Anyone know what I can use to test my 6v rx battery under a load? Thanks. Randy

A 30 Ohm resistor will provide approx 200 mA load at 6V. Just make sure it can withstand 2 Watts or more. Then measure with a digital voltmeter. If you want more load, recalculate with your desired load.

Volts / desired Amps = required load
6 V / 0.200 A = 30 Ohm
6 V / 0.300 A = 20 Ohm
________________________

Volts * Amps = Watts
6 V * 0.200 A = 1.2 W
6 V * 0.300 A = 1.8 W

Default Loaded Battery Tester

Randy,
This tester has three different loads to check different size battery packs. Reads up to 18vdc.

As strato said a 20 dollar volt ohm meter and a resistor in line is all you need. If you want to spend 60 bucks or a little more buy a cycler - dymond recycler/charger is about 99 bucks
