I have been putting little volt meters on some of my builds and adding them to older builds, they are accurate as verified by my fluke meter.

Anyway the only 2 cell NUBM44 I have left, that is the only build I have not upgraded to 3 cells is running 2 cells and they sag much faster, as the cells wear out over many dozens of cycles they sag faster, also switch springs get weak and you can see voltage sag with orientation, you would be surprised how hot your tail cap spring gets where it makes contact with the battery.

If you want full power out of the NUBM44 you have to feed it.
I over built my host so much that nothing is getting even a little warm, Heavy springs at both ends, a 10 amp aviation micro switch and heavy gauge fine strand copper wire through out plus I'm running 2 ea IJOY INR 26650 batteries that can putout 30 Amps continuously, It's way overboard but that's partly because that's the stuff I had on hand and didn't have to buy any of it.......
