Turnigy Lipo Battery Voltage Tester 2-8S and Low Voltage Buzzer Alarm
This cell checker comfortably accepts even the biggest Lipo batteries. The range that can be tested is from 2S to 8S. When the voltage goes below a set level the buzzer will sound and red LED will come on. Push button to set voltage alarm value or turn alarm off. Belt hook to keep it handy.
A perfect addition to everyone’s toolkit.

Used it to upgrade my sons Aldi 6V electric ride-on to Lipo power (totally rocks!). I did this using a 2S 5000mah pack for 7.4v.
There's no instructions but the buzzer attaches to the balance lead from the 1S side of the connector which is from the right when looking at the label side (opposite to the voltage display side). Beeps once loudly then displays setting and voltage. Settings changed with button bush. Very loud but effective when it goes off and handy to have actual voltage display.Bought this to have a LiPo checker handy, but when connecting a battery it beeps ear-piercingly loudly (even with the alarm turned off). I mean smoke alarm loud, designed to be heard from a distance, which shows that it is primarily an on-board voltage monitor/alarm not a portable checker.
There is an easy (non-destructive) solution to this though: pop open the case and put two tiny (5x5x5mm) cubes of receiver foam padding into the two beeper horns. Or any sort of dense sponge. Now just nice quiet beeps with the option to remove the foam in future to use as an on-board monitor/alarm (which isn’t an option if silenced by removing the beepers).
- Excellent portable LiPo voltage tester (when muted with foam)
- Easy to read LED display with tough casing (i.e. no LCD screen which is easily damaged like some testers)
- Shows individual cell voltages
- Can also use as a permanently-mounted on-board voltage monitor/alarm (optionally removing the case)
- Amazing value
- Very loud beeper that beeps on every connection (even when the alarm is set to OFF) - but can be muted with some RX foam in the beeper horns
- Voltage not displayed immediately (takes ~4s to show the overall voltage)
Ideally it would only ever beep on a low cell voltage, and also show the overall voltage first instead of the cell count (which you probably already know).Very useful tool, comes with an instruction sticker.The product works great and is a really handy tool in the field when I get mixed up on which batteries I've used. I don't use the LVI, but the alarm seems quite loud and I can confirm it does work. It looses 1 star because of how careful you need to be when plugging in the balance port. You can insert your connector and displace the prongs of the device over the top of the connector if you are not careful. Not a big deal, but keep an eye on that. Glad I made the purchase.The buzzer is LOUD. I desolder/removed them because they are not needed for my application. It continuously cycles showing you totally pack voltage, plus each cell individually. Pretty good item.
