My experience w/. low-Voltage alarms is not their accuracy, but the timing when they go off. One cell might dip down and set it off a little early or if the cells are even, by the time the alarm goes off, all the cells end up somewhat lower than the set value of the alarm.
If you are stuck w/ relying on a low-Voltage alarm, I would suggest two things.
Mount a Voltmeter so when the alarm first starts to beep, you can quickly ck. the pack Voltage to see where you are really at.
And, carry enough battery capacity that you never get close to total dis-charge.
I use a LED display Voltmeter w/ a timed backlight so I can leave it always connected and it doesn't drain the pack;
I actually use 2 on my 2Wd.

About as good as anything else just don't discharge too far or they'll go out of balance.timmy66 wrote:Am curious for these types of packs -- how well are they maintaining their balance when used this way?
After a couple of charge cycles..... the discharge
