The Turnigy 2 in 1 Power Meter/Servo Meter is a great tool to have in your flight box. It can quickly and easily measure voltage, amperage and wattage of just about any R/C electronic component.
This device has two channels:
Channel 1 is designed for use with servos and can handle up to 8.4V/10A. It features JR style plug connections allowing you to easily connect your servos directly to the meter. This is very useful for determining if your ESC's BEC can handle your model's servos.
Channel 2 features 12AWG input/output leads and supports up to 60V/100A. This is perfect for checking you power system in anything from micro to large size electric models!
All of the data is displayed on a large, easy to read 1.5" TFT backlit color display making it visible in just about any lighting condition. This meter even features a data graph display for both channel 1 and 2.
• Accurate voltage/amperage/wattage measurement
• 1.5" TFT backlit color display
• 2 channel operation (CH1 8.4V/10A max, CH2 60V/100A max)
• Perfect for testing current used by servos and power systems
• Adjustable amperage/voltage alarm
Servo meter input CH1: 8.4V/10A max
Power meter input CH2: 60V/100A max
Display: 1.5" TFT

Otherwise it works great. Like it.
Screen graphs is cool but useless.Very nice.Works as expected.It for sure makes it a lot easier to set up your power system for max power..It would be nicer if it came with connectors already attached to it with addional connectors for different setup types.good to test servo max amp to help select bec.
and could help to select battery and escWas apprehensive abt getting these. But very nice product with a flashy colour display and a peak graph displayReceived mine a few weeks ago and tested it on a few motors and servos, can't say anything reliable about the accurary because I don't have anything to compare with, but I think it's accurate, all values it measured are ok.
The Screen with its different options is very nice, also the diagrams are nice to have.
All in all, for this price a great product and, if you don't have anything similar yet, a must have!
BUT: It doesn't come with any connectors, you have to order and solder them by yourself, no problem but you have to knwo it.This is a nice meter. I am using it in conjunction with the 7 in 1 battery meter servo function. But wait, before you can use it you need to correct the Futaba cable supplied with it. The cable has the white signal and the black negative pins swapped. Use an Xacto to lift the tab holding the pins in the J-connector and the white signal pin should be next to the J tab. Notice inn the photo above the cable shown is also in correct!meter works great, shows stuff in real time. everythinmg seeems to be working well, HOWEVER it will not work below 8V! so if you have anythign that runs on 2S and want to check out it's max amp draw u're out of luck. it'll keep flashing warning. great meter otherwise!Super usefull gadget, u can display many values and can see amps in time and consumption in mAh.Gute Anzeige fr die Ermittlung 2 verschiedener Stromkreise.
So ist der antriebsakku und auch im anderen Kreis der Stromverbrauch des Empfnger inkl servo ersichtlich.I have modified this meter in order to meausure power source with lower than 8V.
The power for the MCU is obtained by TL431 and NPN boost transistor and the regulated output voltage is 3.3V. Power consumption is 33mA @ 15V.
I added one 1A silicon diode to the cathode of existing diode (code 4A) on PCB. Plus( ) input of auxialiary power is supplied through the additional diode and negative(-) input is connected to negative(ground) pattern of PCB.
Howebver remember that always warning message appears on LCD when you measure power source with lower than 8.0V.
This is because you cannot set the minimum warning value at lower than 8.0V which is programmed in MCU and you cannot change this value.
