Simple, cheap, working battery tester – Mini Analog Battery Power Level Tester Reviews

posted by emale on 04/18/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Easily tests almost every battery you have.
It targets any 1.5V batteries
Cons:
Build quality is awkward.
I had to screw down upper contact to make sure it will touch battery.
It's hard to keep battery within contacts.
Contacts are made of cheap metal without any tin, so it seems they are corrosive
Other:
Includes inner current shunt with 4 Ohm resistance and color scale for measuring battery voltage.
So it is really battery tester not battery voltage meter
Bottomline:
Perfect tester
Use with caution, indoor, and it will work for a long time.
