Default Re: Testing Pack, fried my Multimeter.

I got it now, it was a VOM not a digital. If you had it set on 200VDC you reversed the connection and cooked the movement.
Yes you need a digital meter to test batteries, cheapies are only $5 at Harbor Freight and won't blow up. Supposed better ones cost anywhere from $30-$150 but essentially all do the same thing.
Here's the HF link: http://www.harborfreight.com/7-funct...ter-90899.html
Good luck.

Sounds to me like you had one of the probes plugged into the jack for current measurement. If so that would fry your meter as soon as you connect it to a battery.

There were only 3 ports Red, Black & a 10 amp. It was in the red and black ones as I've always used it lol.

Got a new MM today. 8v batteries read after charging for 6 hours: One battery is different, that is the way I got it.
8.50v Everstart
8.49v Everstart
8.48v Everstart
8.47v Everstart
8.51v Everstart
8.28v Trojan

Pack was 51.31v

6ga in on the batteries, would 2ga help it any without changing anything?

Let these batteries settle 6 -12 hours and re read them for a more true, less inflated (fresh off the charger) Reading

2g Cable is overkill for all but the most extreme golf carts running 500a and larger controllers......

Thanks, will re-read them tomorrow.
What about 4ga? Any noticeable differences with stock setup that is? Or should I just spend the money somewhere else?

Upgrading to 4ga welding cable is a good upgrade for a stock cart..
