Indeed, I think 18650's will die first

I’m hoping that by that time we’ll be able to fit an even better battery and maybe a little electronic piece in the battery compartment to make sure it gets what it needs to work as expected. :)

I had a pretty similar idea for my sleeve, as far as being true to the original concept and the former owner and stuff, but there are some significant differences. I think you’ll probably like mine too. I can’t wait to see the final product, but if it’s even close to as great as yours (and I think it will be) I’ll be super happy! Congrats! :rockon:

There are some images of the dyed fabric that Dan has been working on over on his IG for anyone interested. I looking forward to seeing how the cases turn out. I can see a nice blue case in my future mimicking the beautiful ocean waters of Hawaii to hold my curly koa Nomad 2 nice and safely.

Until then I'll continue (barely) containing my excitement.

The Nomad will be my first unregulated 18650 device. I want to get a multimeter to check battery voltage. Will this work? https://www.amazon.com/AstroAI-Digi...01ISAMUA6/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
That would work yes, you'd set it to DC voltage which is the V with a straight line and dots and setting 20. I have a multi meter near me so I can check voltages on any cell that goes into one of my unregulated devices. They're a good item to have around the house anyways.

If you want to go the Chinese cheapo DMM route, usually entry level dollar stuff is utter crap, and I mean it won't give you any stable reading and can sometimes even be misleading. But if you spend slightly more, check the Aneng brand (notably the AN8008 model). It's Chinese but quality is really good for the price (got mine for around 20 euros, but I just tried looking on amazon and they were all pricier now, but currently 25$ shipped from BangGood and possibly cheaper on Aliexpress)

Thanks @KeroZen - looks like they are around $35 on Amazon. I'm willing to spend a little more to have something reliable.

Are the voltage meters on certain chargers with digital displays actually reliable readings?

I have a Nitecore D2, a fairly inexpensive charger, and I've found that the voltage display is accurate.

The only advantage having a DMM will give you is for troubleshooting a problem. It's handy for around the house/garage if you like to fix things!

Yes genuine Nitecore chargers should be fine... but if you don't have a reliable meter to confirm that, you'll never know! :)

I've had bad surprises with other lesser brand chargers where they clearly exceeded the 4.20V cutoff, and this is bad.

But yes as Dan said, getting a DMM is especially useful as a tool of its own. If you don't think you will use it for anything else, the one in your charger should be good enough.
