Balancing a Wheel That Has a Monkeylectric

So I have one of these Monkeylectric gadgets on order and need some advice on how to balance out the wheel. I'd like to mount something (other than a 2nd unit) on the spokes opposite the Monkeylectric to eliminate the oscillation that you feel with an unbalanced wheel. Any ideas? The device weighs about 150 grams with batteries.

Remove any wheel reflectors, then spin the wheel. When it stops mount the light on the top side. Then mount a couple of wheel reflectors opposite. The wheel wont be spinning fast enough, when you are riding, for you to feel the effects of any small imbalance.
