Watts Up Meter Useage

Hello Everyone ,

Simple? question ... I am using my Watts Up meter from the RC Planes I do. Have hooked it up to the Bike with the 3 wire setup I found on the internet . Works Fine ...

So ...... Why would anyone ever use it in the 4 wire setup ??? Seems harder to do and less safe for the 4 wire setup ... So ... Is there some advantage to the 4 wire hookup I do not know ???

Thanks again for all of the help you all have given me , Don J.

the 4-wire hookup is so the wiring looks more logical to novice users.

the 3-wire hookup method is the best due to the two less connections (less resistance)

Thanks , So there's no difference in the performance of the meter .. I just sorta thought it might work better (more accurate) with the 4 wire hookup .. The 3 wire is sure easier and it does seem to work just the same ... Thanks again , Don J.
