Default Data logging on 1s and 4cell nimh

i have an eagle tree elogger v3 and i wanted to use it in my 1/12th but eagle trees says it needs atleast 4.5 volts or a separate power source from the main pack that is higher voltage. with a separate power source, how low in voltage can the elogger read? and can you run the elogger on a 6.6v life battery?

Should be fine, but I would check with Eagle Tree to make sure.

this is the response i got from eagle tree, sucks for 1s and 4cell nimh setups:

The eLogger V3 will record down to 4.35V when being powered by a battery backup.

When used with the eLogger, the CAB-BAT-BACK can supply additional power from a battery ranging between 4.5V to 6.5V. Anything above 6.5V has the potential of damaging the eLogger, so we would recommend against using anything that is above 6.5V.

If you're running a receiver pack with a regulator, you can simply power the eLogger with that battery/regulator/back-up harness. It's great that the eLogger can still record the amp draw of the main pack because I found that particularly useful even in 2c applications. If you have any technical questions about the eLogger, feel free to PM me. I've been using it since the beginning of the year and it's amazing how detailed the data is.
