Duralite states 6.9 at 1.0 amp load.

That would be the 1 on the checker.

However most guys would stop at 7.2 or 7.3.

Good luck,, and replace those batteries after a year.

VoltCheck 4.8v monitor
I have one attached to my R50SE and R90Std. I move all the servos before I start the heli to see if the green light stay constant. If the orange to red light comes up while all the servos are moving, then it is time to stop flying and charge the batteries - low voltage and servos are depleting the current.
It is another tool other than the voltmeter to assure every flight is safe.

I have pulled another 2 or 3 flights after hitting 7.2-7.3v, and still only got it down to 7.1v.

These batteries give you ALOT of flights.

Duralite say 6.9, so why stop at 7.2? I stop flying when I'm in the 6.90 to 6.94 range. The batteries also seem to charge up better when flown down to the lower end of the range.

There, their and they're. It's really that simple.

Safe discharge voltage is 6v for a 2s pack, so 6.9 is a pretty generous safety margin. I'd never violate it but I'd fly right up to it.Andy
