    Hey don't worry about it, it's not possible to embarrass yourself at this point. The MŌVI is still brand-new!!

    Hold it so the digit read out is on your right.
    Then the negative pin is the closest to you. Plug in the balance lead so that the negative wire is nearest to you. I will read out the individual cells' voltages and display "All" for the total voltage.

    It draws very little current, so you can leave it plugged in while you shoot if you want, but make sure it doesn't foul the gimbal.

    Hope that helps.
    Andy.

    Hi guys,

    thank you very much for your feedback (and the total lack of RTFM).
    Cheers,

    Jochen (becoming slowly less intimidated by the MOVI)
