The internal resistance (IR) of a lipoly pack is made up of the resistances of each cell plus the wire and connections. Measurement of the IR of a battery is a guide to its condition, regular monitoring will tell you if the battery is starting to deteriorate or not. As many of you may know IR is a dynamic condition, the resistance will become more important with the more charge/discharge cycles it is subject to. This means that the cells will find it harder each time delivering their power until they reach a point where they are unusable.

The Turnigy IR meter can measure the IR of 2~8cell lipoly packs with a capacity of 200mAH up to 6000mAH, (Please note: during the test 10A load will be placed on the pack so ensure the pack is capable of doing this).

The operation of the unit is very simple, just connect the XT60 power plug and the balance plug into the appropriate sockets of the unit. Press the ON/Off button to start the test, after a few seconds the voltage and the IR results will be displayed on the very clear to read LCD screen. Press the On/Off button once more but this time for about 3secs and this will then turn the unit off.

This unit is a very simple way of keeping a watchful eye on all your lipoly batteries, it is a must for all, no more getting caught out on the flying field with an unhealthy battery.

Balance Plug only fits a full 8s connector. Requires an adapter for any other size batteries. Fatal design flaw for an otherwise useful device.

Very useful item. Seems accurate for IR testing but voltage indications, in my case, are wrong at least for one cell (#3) : voltage is much higher with IR tester when compared with my current voltage tester, and this with any LiPo battery tested. However, increases in IR are correctly checked and this is the most important thing.

Essential to see the life of the battery. It arrives on time to prevent a fire on two batteries. I dont know if it is very accurate but whem i see the IR grow up quickly its time to send to recycle the battery and add new one.

I do not know how accurately measures the part , but as a rough estimation formula I use the following : 0,51V / capacity [ Ah ] * C - rate . Specifically, it is when measured from the beginning and then compares .

Useful for measuring the IR of a battery, really useful.

Very convenient, fast. But not exactly.

Just got this IR meter but when I compare its readings to my iCharger IR readings, the readings are very different. Gave me some suspiciously low readings for a 2 year old 2200mah lipo (5.9ohm highest on this meter and 9ohm on the iCharger). Anyone know if there's a way to calibrate these units?

Works great, I have a lot of old batteries and none failed yet. The IR is another indicator for your judgments of your collection. Case could have been designed a lot more compact. But it and the unit are sturdy and feels durable. I have many of the voltage only checkers. Now that I have this, these others are backups and in the bottom of the repair tool caddy and not the flight case.

The idea behind this product is great and also the manufaturing is excellent.
The problem is the IR measurement which, in my unit, is very poor. Old and dead batteries result having IR measurement lower than new ones. I'm surprised that no other comments report that. I also made a comparison between this unit and the 7 in one mega meter (P. ID 9052000010). The mega meter can only measure individual cell IR and needs another battery for powering on but the IR measurements are very good for battery comparison and are totally different to the ones of this unit. I wonder if someone else has experienced my problem.
