How does this work o.o??

You can buy them on eBay just search for power meter

This is how they’re hooked up.

If you get one of these you simply plug one end to your blaster connector and plug the other end to you battery connector :+1:

Do u know if it holds memory for peak figure or only current statues while it’s running?

IDK but it says it measures peak ?
There are lots of different one available if you search

I find the constant more useful than the peak.
That peak is a spike that can vary depending on the piston position and is usually too brief to heat up the circuit.
I compare between motors by seeing the power they deliver on a continuous basis.

This is a favourite with techs.
