The Lipo Mate is a high-precision measurement tool for Li-Poly batteries. It integrates the functions of measuring cell voltage, displaying battery power capacity, and balancing cells by displaying the balance status immediately.
The small, yet surprisingly clear LCD contributes to its unique appearance. You will be alerted by a flashing alarm when cell voltages are low. Operation runs off the Li-Poly attached requiring no external power source. When the voltage difference between cells reaches 0.01V, the balancer will work until all the cells are balanced. The corresponding "V" will be flickering when it is balancing.
This product will not work on Polyquest of Hyperion Battery type balance connectors without a custom made wire adapter!
As a safety precaution, the Lipo Mate will stop balancing if the the cell voltagte reaches 3.3V!
This checker works great at a great price. I'd love to see a button to switch to LiFe/A123, but that would only effect the "full/empty" graphic. Less then half the price of the other item that a lot of people are using. I'm totally happy with this. (Posted on 9/16/2013)
