H-King Cellmeter-7 Lipo/Life/Li-ion/Nimh/Nicd Digital Battery Checker
The Hobbyking Cellmeter-7 is a must have tool for the RC Hobbyist, not only is it capable of instantly checking the overall and individual cell voltage of Lipo/Life & Li-ion batteries (with balance plugs fitted) it can also give you an instant reading of the remaining capacity of the battery at the same time, so no guess work! The mode button also allows you to check highest and lowest individual cells and voltage differences between individual cells, finally, as well as the Lithium battery port, there is an additional reciever style 3 pin port for checking overall voltage on Nimh/Nicd RX batteries.
The Hobbyking Cellmeter-7 is a simple, fast and brilliant way to check battery voltage and most importantly, help you determine the condition of your packs within seconds, it is the must have battery checker for the toolbox of every RC pilot/driver!
Features: Easy to read LCD screen Easy to use Menu Full instructions included Total voltage, cell voltage and remaining capacity readings for all Lithium type batteries Nicd/Nimh RX Voltage Checker Mode allows you to display highest & lowest cells and max voltage differential between cells Instant Battery capacity graph 1S~7S Lithium type cells
I bought one of these and found it does what it claims ( slight problem with some LiFE batteries!)It works great on Lipos and Nimh but first LiFe I tried it would not work! I tested all my LiFes and found that it seems to be certain type balance plugs do not work although they look similar. All my LiFe batteries work on it except 2, can't explain it!!
I've bought it for my Li-Fe on my raptor in order to get a percentage for this different kind of battery, but, it doesn't work at all. My battery got 3.3v on each cell and the tester just make a tic tic tic noise without any reading on the lcd panel. It seems to works ok on my Lipo 2s and 3d thought.
If you look at my post below, the same happened to me. It worked fine with my Lipo and nimh batteries but not with LiFe batteries. I went through a real nut roll with customer service about this. After many, many emails back and forth they had me send it to tech support in Washington state to look at it. This was a couple of weeks ago and have not heard from them yet.
I have one - works fine with the Lipo's but when I connect a NIMH or Nicad a value comes up with a percentage reading and it is reading at 4 cell. I then toggle around the cell numbers until I come back to the cell number of the battery I am using - and if it is 4 cell I get a different reading (normally lower) to what it showed when I first connected it. Which reading is the correct one??
This unit does put a small load on the battery so the reading will gradually go down if left on for a long period,you will also see a drop fairly quickly when you first plug a battery in,this is normal,the lower reading is the one which will be correct.
Thanks.. the voltage changes immediately after I've connected and toggled to the cell number of the battery I've connected. Say I have a 4 cell, it shows 4 cell when connected at perhaps 96%, I toggle around and when it comes back to 4 cell it's showing 81% so which is correct or is it then showing a low cell or something?
Ich konnte diesen Cellmeter Battery Checker bei meinem Kollegen testen. Liefert die Werte extrem schnell, ist gut lesbar, einfache Bedienung. Einfach toll. Hab mir auch gleich eins Bestellt. Danke Hobbyking
The meter is cheap, and it's good. But why it displays milivolts when the real accuracy is at most 0,05V? In my opinion presentation of the device's photo with milivolts on LCD and the lack of information about the accuracy is some kind of cheating.
And I don't think that the difference in price between devices with the accuracy of 0,05 and 0,01 is 10 times...
Alarms are not used on checkers, unless it is an on-board type (hence cannot check the display visually).
There's no need to leave this plugged after you perform the battery capacity check, so what's the need for an alarm?
I must be very stupid but I am not able to measure the 1S batteries of my mini cp the 2s and 3s works like a charm but 1s not being able to make it work.
In the description is listed that works for 1S but in the manual that came with the device shows from 2s-7s.
Do you have any idea?
you would need to hook your 1s batteries together using a custom made harnnes to check two of your batteries as a 2s pack as the checker will not do a 1s pack on its own.
The system needs more voltage power than a 1s to run the lcd screen display.

Can anyone tell me why, when a NiMh Rx battery is plugged in neither the "Type" or "Mode" buttons work. Everything is fine on LiPo, but on the Rx battery it only reads Voltage and percentage left, and shows "Nixx" as battery type. the instructions say that "Capacity shown for Nixx type cells is not accurate." My main reason for getting it was to check Rx batteries.
Thanks Ben. I had assumed that I could select either NiCad or NiMh, but on thinking about it obviously all I am getting is total voltage - it doesn't matter what type of cells make up the pack. All very clear when you think about it afterwards!
when is this coming back in stock? Does anyone know?
No problem with lipo and Nimh batteries, its reading is very good compared with a digital multimeter and an Icharger.
Differences are only 0.002V per cell.
With life instead it wont work. Can't understand why.
Still trying to start but nothing happens.
It read a lipo discharged at 3.3V but not a life at every voltage between 3.3 and 3.6.
Almost forgotten to mention the annoying beeper.
Very loud and irritating. Can I simply unsolder it or will destroy the cellmeter?
Thank you for attention.
Veramente utile. Il fratello italiano costa 30€ ed è identico (non ha il marchio di HK ovviamente). Se ve ne serve uno compratelo qua perché non ha nulla (e sottolineo nulla) di diverso da quello che potete trovare nel negozio sotto casa (questo fa venire un po' di rabbia!)

i really love this product , it is very simple to use, screen has a good contrast, big lettering, very accurate, and it can check all kind of batteries, i got this one for my workshop and now i am going to order another one for the field , its a must have .
