Default Question about wattsup meter

Well, I got a wats up a few month ago and have put off using it until flying time was over... and sadly that time is pretty much here. My question is this... is it possible to put multiple leads onto the wire provided so that I may use my seemingly endless plug types? Having an array of plane sizes i'm dealing with deans, micro deans, jst, etc etc etc... i was curious if this was possible as just putting deans connectors and using adapters would seem to change my readings with the longer leads and more connections....

I apologize if this makes less sense on screen than it did in my head at the moment.

If you put the full size deans on the meter, then make adaptors from deans to the others with only a small amount of extra wire, there should be no problem, as all the other connectors are for low current there should not be a problem. Good luck.

thank for the quick response pilot... i figured after this amount of time i best start propping my planes the right way... didn't know if that extra connection would adversely effect the readings any
