Pros:
Great tool if you have many bateries laying around and never know which one is good and which one is bad, as I do :-) It fits all sizes of batteries and the price is nice too.
Cons:
Not really a con, but for different batteries you need to get a sense what good battery shows on the scale and what bad battery does, since the "good/weak/replace" scale is not always exactly true and it depends on the battery application. Also the scale is made for non-rechargable batteries, if you test rechargable batteries, even the fully charged one shows just a bit into the green scale. However if you get a sense of it, it's no problem at all and you instantly know which battery is good and which is already done.
Other:
I haven't found a battery which would show anything bellow the yellow "weak" on the scale. Even totally drained batteries didn't show the red "replace".
Bottomline:
It's good, buy it if you need to test batteries!
