Hi, I don't think you really need that one,  :(( if you just want a lipo low voltage alarm the cheap ones work just as well. :-)) :-)) :-)).
You can set the alarm to your own low voltage limits, O0 I set mine to 3.7 volts per cell.  %)when plugged into lipo balance lead it will scrolle thu -- 1 cell voltage,-- number2 cell volts,-- number 3 cell volts,-- total volts. :police:
Plug into balance lead any way round till it reads (it wont be damaged)  :}
Hope this helps :-))

Flea bay do have lipo low warning visual ones as well, youget a green light for each cell on plug in, it then goes out, and at low volts a red for each cell lights up. so the lowest cell in the pack lits first  :-))

Thats OK when the boat is in your hand, but less useful when it is out on the water.
Best answer is not particularly cheap, but one of my members is using a radio outfit with telemetry.  It shows his boat voltage on the screen on his transmitter.

So spose the obviose answer to the problem is to time the run you are getting with good performance,
until performance declines, and use that time to run your boat on in future and remove from wet stuff and charge. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))
 a lot cheaper to ?

I have the Hobbyking one with the LED indicators and Alarm. It cost's about 1.80 I think (They have a few around that price) and I've got one in each boat. They work great and have always given enough notice to get back to shore. Their more expensive ones (about 3) have exact voltage displays and I use one of those at the side of the pond.
