Voltage meter
Does the voltage netter show the voltage of the batteries at rest so I can guage how much battery life I have left or is it the voltage the mod is set to? I presume it's just the battery voltage but want to be sure, I hate not being able to see battery voltage for some reason.

You should always gauge your batteries when under load.

The voltage you are measuring off load do not take into account the battery internal resistance, it is not a good way to know what the battery is still able to provide under load.

True but OP was asking how the screen worked and it adjusts by using Variable voltage dial on the side and displays whatever you set between 3.5-5.79V.



Not sure that is actually reads/gauges the voltage left in your battery though?

Haven't really looked at any videos reviews for it though.

Only ones I see on YouTube are not in English

Ok thanks, that's what I was wondering. Would there be any way of knowing when your batteries need changed other than when it hits the low voltage cutoff? I've never used a device like this, they've all either been mechs which you can feel when the batteries are dying or something with a battery meter of some sort

Not sure but cutoff I would expect to be around 3v to 3.2v or so (not sure)

It may or may not check voltage as I didn't check the videos I linked (don't understand the language).


You may be able to discern what they are basically talking about if you watch the whole thing?

But if you have a multimeter you could check them, but have to take them out.

Since there should be cutoff then as long as your using good IMR batteries it shouldn't really be an issue. IMO

So if you have a voltage meter just check batteries after the mod cuts off to see the actual cutoff to be sure it is not lower then 3volts.

It does'nt show the batteries voltage, it show the volts setting.
