The ISDT BatteryGO: An awesome little battery checking device.

The Ultimate Battery Checker!

If your like me, you cannot have enough LIPO battery checkers in your possession. I don’t know what it is about the little buggers but even if I attach them to everything I own, I never seem to have one when it is convenient. Additionally, some of the ones I have are limited to LIPO battery chemistry so checking LIFE or other batteries is sketchy at best.

I was surfing around on Amazon recently on a quest to find the “Ultimate LiPO Checker and what to wondering eyes should appear, an awesome little battery checker with some great capability beyond just checking batteries. For a comprehensive article on everything LiPO, Click Here!
