this low voltage cutoff does what it should do;

it monitors the individual cell voltage.

it's the Graupner 6495

here is the manual.

Wow, that IS a nice LVC! It can take two separate packs at once... Only problem is that for use who don't speak (German?) we can't read the manual.

Any ideas on the price of this awesome LVC?

I think it's an easier read from page 4 Metal.. (at least, till the french part)


Only thing i dislike about it, is that you need to plug it in, every time you drive.. Doesn't help for a clean wire job. Would be a reason for Daf not to buy.. :)

I just picked up a balancer from them at my lhs, my criterea was to get one that charged thru the main wires and balance over the tabs. I measured a difference (as expected) on the charger leads and on the lipo tabs. when the charger leads are 4.2V per cel (12.6 on a 3S pack) the individual cells are 4.12V each.. i hope this balancer gets them full..

That's better :) (didn't see it before). Do you have any idea on the price of this unit? The only thing I see wrong with it is that you have to use that particular style of taps (although it is somewhat popular) or else you have to use an adapter.

Would you have to use an extension any way? I wouldn't think the plug for the taps would be that long.

It depends on how your batteries are set up. In some cases you might need an extension, and using an adapter for that purpose would be very suitable.

That's about what other LVC devices cost, so with this one you get more for your money!

This thing looks really sweet. From what I can tell it should work with either parallel or series battery configurations. The only think I would wish for was a programmable cut off voltage. for those of us who don't want to cut it all the way down to 2.5v. I would prefer to be able to program it to cut a 2.7v just to be safe.

But I gotta say... its the best one yet IMO.

anyone know where to get one of these state side????


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

It has got a 3V cutoff allready. that 2.5 is with dean cells, when it reaches 2.5 it cuts off. With 3V it throttles down.

That's an awesome little device.... I think I already have too much crap hooked up in my cars though.

Some of the things with wires, that COULD all be installed at the same time:

2 lipo packs
motor
speedo
servo
reciever
ubec
personal transponder (racing)
fans
spektrum telemetry system
and/or eagletree data recorder
AND now... LVC device

And a GPS unit stuck inside too..

Looks like the inside of a computer :D
