This way it gets a lot of views, and more people will see it.
I'm sure the Mods will move it when they see fit.

Don't worry about it. You posted great information.
Your thread got 246 views, much more than it would anywhere else.
The mods may or may not move it later.

I do not need exact measurement. Close is good enough for me. I have tested this meter on 13 batteries 2S and 3S. All IR reading corresponded the age and cycles of the battery. Older more used ones had much higher IR then newer less used ones. I have repeated this test twice.

I know this meter is not 100% spot on but for me and maybe for other users like me 90% will be good enough.

Once I get another tools to be able to measure IR other way I will try this again and compare the results. This way I will know exactly how good this meter is.

I like the IR option.

I've had a bad battery case me to hit LVC more then once this year. If I had a ball park that the lack was about done, it could have saved me a lot of trouble and money.

I've tested this with an IR Meter, and results are almost the same. The IR Meter is a bit more precise. But this unit is good enough for the field use for me.

They only way to even begin to accurately measure IR is to use the the 4 wire Kelvin method.

Thank you for doing the comparison test. This confirmed what I have already said. Not bad for 5 dollar meter.

in the manual it says 900 - 2100us.

Can you explain to me what those numbers actually mean as I have never tried to test servos ? What is "us" and what do the numbers represent ? thank you
