    I can't seem to find a link that explains....

    ...how to test my battery for voltage using a multi-meter. I dont know what two spots I should put the negative and positive prongs. I am using an ego btw, but tomorrow I will be doing it on the OMG AD. I just want to know what my battery life is throughout the day so I don't suck it too dry and so I can start to get an idea of how my vape at the time compares to the voltage.

    oh awesome thank you! So I put the red probe on the post and the black on the threads? and measure for volts? So when my OMG AD is completely charged I should read between, umm lets say, 4.15 to 4.27 volts?

    RTE sir if your multimeter is properly calibrated you should never see a voltage over 4.25v off load from a battery. If you do, don't use that battery, and check your charger. A lithium based batt should never be charged over 4.25v...

    Ok. I was just guessing what I would see I haven't actually performed any tests yet, but thanks for the heads up!
