This professional type battery tester, made by Ansmann, gives a true indication of the capacity of a whole range of commonly used battery types. Not only does it give a voltage reading but also indicates the remaining battery capacity as a percentage relative to full capacity (100%). Most simpler battery testers will only indicate the voltage of a battery without a load connected (i.e. not powering a circuit), which can often be misleading as once a load is connected the voltage can drop very quickly if the battery capacity is low - even though the voltage reading may have been fine. The Ansmann professional tester eliminates this possibility, giving a reliable indication of the actual capacity of the battery being tested.
The tester can be used to test: Alkaline, Lithium photo, Lithium button, Zinc-Air, NiCd, NiMH battery types including all commonly used 1.5 V alkaline cells (AAA, AA, C, D), 9 V PP3, 1.5 V button cells, 3 V Lithium coin cells, 3 V Lithium photo batteries, 6 V Lithium photo batteries, 12 V alkaline (A23), 1.44 V Zinc-Air and 1.2 V NiCd and NiMH rechargeable batteries (AAA, AA, C, D). Simply place the battery onto the tester and check the reading, or connect the probe to one end of the battery cell then check the reading (depending on type being tested).
The LCD indicates Voltage along with battery capacity in 10% steps and includes a self-test button to test the internal battery capacity. Includes 9 V PP3 battery, test probe, instructions and two year warranty.
