As enthusiasts of all things electronic, we love playing with RC vehicles and drones, and we especially love how it’s possible to beef them up to absolutely unreasonable levels for extreme speed, power and performance. However, as Electronics enthusiasts, we also understand the importance of safe battery operation and maintenance, and this is why we’re always on the lookout for cool products like the ToolkitRC M8S, as it’s these kinds of tools that really help us monitor, analyse, test and maintain good health for our Batteries, which of course are the primary power sources for the high speeds, power and performance that we need from our RC  toys  equipment.

The M8S Multifunctional Charge, Test, Analysis & PSU Tool is quite a beast in a tiny little package, and offers not only excellent charging and discharging features for batteries, but also includes a range of awesome features that helps with testing, analysing and even powering them for physical tests too. Additionally, the M8S also offers a surprising level of compatibility, with support for all of the major Lithium Based Batteries, as well as support for NiMh Batteries and Pb based batteries too. This wide level of functionality and compatibility make it a true all-in-one solution for anyone who wants to get the most out of their batteries and RC gear – while keeping safe from potential battery problems.

In terms of functionality, the TollkitRC M8S is capable of measuring PWM, PMM and sBUS signals, as well as the Internal Resistances of batteries, the precise voltage of individual batteries in a cell pack, and even ESC output measurement for in-depth tweaking. Furthermore, the M8S can also output a good range of modulated signals too, including PWM, PMM and sBUS, and can also output standard power at very specific ratings. These all assist tremendously with Battery Management and good battery health, while also allowing users to test motors, ESC modules and many other RC components – all in an easy to use pocket-sized unit that is as sleek and stylish as it is functional.
