Hobby King X1 is very compact and accurate wattmeter and power analyzer.
Equipped with special current sensor for high precision and low resistance. Predict model airplane flight time with any given propeller, Ensure safe peak currents for motor, ESC, wiring and connectors. Check battery health and performance, Measure power and energy consumption of ANY device with a battery.
Up to that X1 wattmeter records Highest and lowest voltage, Amps and highest watt reading.
Also it has voltage measurement trimming interface, which allows to adjust the voltage drift.
Is it possible for one of you guys who understand how this thing works to write a mini manual in comprehensive English. I've bought one and cannot figure out how it works. Why do I have to caliberate it? Why does it show a reading when connected to battery but not to the speed controller? Why is the reading meaningless? Thanks to whoever can help me out
Well sir i cam hear looking to buy a Good Amp Metter and knoticed your question,i am sory to your missunderstanding of this Unit . I can say it will only do test to o-30 volt / and 100 amp/ This is Ok if you intend toonly use it on a few type things . Maby batterys or any power you need to test Amps . tho not large enough to be usefull for me . as i use 80 volt . and 80 amp systems. so its not good for me . tho the 30amps islow and voltage low / is toy /..Have good luck my friend buy another or go to Youtube for your Instructions New Instructions Uploaded for your help.thank you.
I found out how to calibrate it!! I accidentally held down the little "blue button" as I was plugging in the battery. This made it come up in the calibrate mode. After a calibration - and remember to SAVE - it has worked perfectly every time.
Bullshi sorry bullsnake just thinks of the first thing that passes through his head that he thinks sounds good and uses it on 3 different meters. His answers are complete BS. Click on his name and you can see all his mistakes.
Hansc, Amps and charge are different parameters, which modellers mistakenly use interchangeably. I agree this item shows Amps, but CHARGE is current x time, usually quoted as Amp.hours or milli-amp.hours. I don't see consumed charge on any display.
My thoughts exactly pindro. I have one blank display and find no help in the instruction sheet. One assumes that black is negative (doesn't one?) Anyone got a result from a 2s pack?
I think I have wasted my cash.
I bought it hopes that the meter would hold onto the max or peek voltage but if it does, it won't hold it for very long before some lower voltage reading takes it's place. It is also very unreliable as to the readings to gives. I did get into calibrate function but it hasn't held and I've had to adjust it multiple times to keep the voltage accurate. The current is not adjustable zeroable (as far as I know) and I get a 0.1A reading and typically a 0.5W output with nothing plugged into the "out" side of the meter but the Watt value can fluctuate as high as 1.2W with no load attached.
Excelente instrumento para poder elegir la helice adecuada con un consumo ideal.Reconforta poder tomar decisiones mas tecnicas que una simple intuicion dadapor la experiencia.La recomiendo.
If you're serious about your electric motors you get one of these. Don't bother buying the cheaper HK-010 watt meter since the results of that one just aren't anything near the actual value. This one is a much better tool for getting correct measurements. And you can even get it in the air and read out the in flight information.

Hi, yesterday receive my X1.First checking electronic circuit inside looks OK, but two points soldered again(for that price it's nothing for skiled modelar) After preparatin of proper connections according to inlet(battery) & outlet(ubec) side, start checking with my 70mm EDF (4s1800mah) and absolutely OK. Displaying all offered paramiters(for eg.460Watt 32Amps 15,6V) that quite enough to be calculate propper drive & components. About manual calibration is small mistake in instraction, proper procedure is press the booton & symultaneously connect power(battery) then calibration procedure begining.To this time all my motors (in planes too) are checked (bigest 870 Watt) but device working on cold & cool,that's all.In my opinion good purchase.
