Little Wireless Battery Capacity Digital Ah Meters REVIEW
Jan 18th, 2017 at 9:06pm
 
Two types tested:

The first meter I tested did not read amps both ways. It would only read when discharging. Volts and Amps were within reason. The shunt gets really hot at 80 amps. See ah-meter1.jpg PIC below.

The second one I tested does not read accurate amps. This is compared to measurements by a very nice and older Empro 100A 100 mV shut I used in series with this. The amps were off by more than 10A and would be worse when in discharge. Volts were within reason. It would show (-) negative amps on the display when charging! (yes, it would say "CHG") They got that totally backwards. The Amp Hours counter would sometimes count up when it should count down. The Watt Hour reading always incremented upwards, don't know how that would be useful. The display is nice but the little battery (battery capacity full/empty bars thing) reading was never right even after a week. The shunt gets really hot at only 80 amps. See ah-meter2.jpg PIC below.

If the Ebay item number isn't valid here then search for the title.
