Dogman did a thread about these. See below...dogman wrote:Yeah, I just picked up a few recently and did a thread on em. They aren't all that accurate, like for having one on each cell measuring less than 4v. But they work great for a whole pack monitor. A .1v variance is nothing on 60v. For most of us, 120v max is plenty. Just knowing you start your journey with full charged voltage is priceless.
Only trouble with em is they are hard to read in bright sunlight.

i ordered mine on july 19th, and it just got here today. so a bit over 3 weeks. now im waiting for the $15 wattmeter to come in from the same seller.
