Just wondering if this voltage checker can work with li-ion batteries.

If so what is the load? .5 or 1 or 1.5?
I will try and look up the specs and get back to you but if you have the specs please post them.
ATT: Bob Primm is this the tester you had? Let me know please.

Yup Thats the battery checker that I use for my duralites, amp load is variable from 1-3 amp and it will check 4.8, or 6v as well just flip the switch at the bottom. It will also function as a discharger if need be...although u don't need to discharge duralites.

Skyblue, the BR-2000 was designed to be used as a 4-6 cell battery checker/discharger for Ni-Cad and NMHydride batteries. It basicly checks Rx voltage under an adjustable load of 1-3 A (Check Function) and also has an adjustable load of 1-3 A to help drain the battery down to a specified limit of .09V per cell (Discharge Function).
It can also check but not discharge one cell lithiums.

The Futaba BR2000 will work just fine with the Duralite packs.
Just set the amperage to 1 amp and use it just like any other volt meter.

To those of you that are using the duralite system. What voltage checkers are you guys using? Not looking for fancy expansive ones, just something small and portable that can check li-ion packs accurately. I will be using the 4000mah packs with the 5.1v regulator.

Ya that is what I have and I sure like it. Have not tried it on duralites though but hope to soon!

You will be really happy, and now that you are flying great you will want to fly more and you will really like the duralites.
