I use a CellLog8s. If you don't need the logging features the 8m will do the same thing and costs less. But be aware that it takes 4v to power it up. This can be an issue when checking depleted single cells. To get around this, I made two 3s serial adapters, one for the mCPX cells and one for the smaller UMX cells. Just plug at least two cells in and it will fire right up.

I use this one also -

But I know it measures about .10V high.
I just use it to compare cell voltages and as a comparison guide against other packs.

I know this is an old thread so hoping there are some updates to be added. Also for future sake put the make/model down with the web link. Both the above links are dead.

All three if these are supposed to be good.

I have them all, but have not put the newest ISDT in service yet.

The most accurate used to be the CellLog however AFAIK, they are no longer made.
