Questions?? 4s LIPO Cut-Off Voltage??

I have a 4s 2200 mAh lipo and I am looking for a voltage cut-off device and also what is the actual cut-off voltage?

Low voltage cutoff is based on a cell minimum voltage of 3 - 3.2v, so a 4S cutoff would be 12-12.8v, 12.0v would be a minimum and would have no safety margin. Since this is a small capacity lipo, I'd sues somethimng like 12.2-12.3v to have a little safety margin.

Here's a 4S lvc -

I set the LVC on my 4s packs to 14.1 and that seems a lil low because the car slows down before it even reaches that...

You mean 12.1v??

I've not run a 4S yet, I use 6.2 - 6.4v for 2S. If I used the same thing per cell, that would be 12.4 - 12.8v. 12.8v seems kinda high.

What pacs are you running - sounds like your car is stressing them pretty good.
