Product Description

Perfect for Home Use

Battery failure is one of the most common causes for sensor or instrument failure. The BAT-200 Battery Tester indicates the amount of charge remaining in standard and rechargeable batteries. The analog display needle moves on a color-coded, calibrated scale to quickly identify "good" (green), "low" (yellow), and "replace/recharge" (red) battery status. The BAT-200 tests 9V, AA, AAA, C, D and 1.5V Button Type batteries. Tester does not require any internal batteries to operate.

Operating the BAT-200

Battery voltage decreases as the battery is discharged. Slightly used batteries may show close to full voltage. This means as long as the battery is not in the yellow or red field (indication of low voltage); the battery does not need to be replaced.

High Current/High Load Situations

For testing batteries used in high current/high load situations such as digital cameras, the battery may need to be replaced when tester indicates battery charge is in the low end of the “good” range (near yellow field). These batteries can still be used in low load applications such as in remote controls.

Testing Different Battery Types

Rechargeable Batteries are typically 1.2V when fully charged versus 1.5V for normal alkaline batteries, but they have a higher battery capacity (mAh). Because the BAT-200 tests for voltage, these batteries are still usable when the tester indicates green or yellow fields. When testing batteries, ensure the negative terminal is on top (battery upside down). For button batteries (1.5V only), the negative terminal is on top (look on printing on top of battery to verify terminals and 1.5V voltage).

This is a pretty simple but effective little product. It does exactly as it's supposed to do, telling you if your batter is good, low, or needs to be replaced. It works with all kinds of regular household batteries. I can already tell Im going to save money because many times when my smoke alarm is beeping or I think other things aren't working correctly because of the battery being dead so I throw it out and replace it, with this battery tester Ive already saved myself from throwing out several batteries just by testing them first to see if the battery is the issue and it turns out it isn't. For the price this is a household must have and I am very happy I purchased this.

It does what I purchased it for at an affordable price. And unlike the Radio Shack battery tester I used before, there is an obvious place where the meter should point without a battery attached, so you know if a fall or other rough handling causes the meter to be improperly "zeroed" (which leads to faulty measurements).

The tester works as advertised, but the construction could be a little better. The red slider is a little flimsy. All of the batteries I tested were easy to check and the results were reliable.

I like this battery tester because it is easy to use and provide a clear indication if the battery is dead or probably OK.

The easy to use part is that I can test a battery with one hand and don't have to fiddle with test leads. Slip it in, close the jaws, and look at the needle.

The clear indication part is where the problems come in. This is a simple tester that measures the battery with no load. If it can still deliver 1.5 volts (actually create that much of a potential difference) then it shows up as good. The thing is that as a battery dies it can still measure 1.5 volts with no load but that drops as the load increases.

Here's an example. If you connect a brand new battery to a bulb that needs 1.5 volts to make it glow brightly then it will glow brightly. (duh) If you add a second bulb (in parallel for us geeks) it will also glow brightly. Maybe add a few more bulbs the same way and, since it's a brand new battery, they'll all shine.

Wait a while and the bulbs will start to dim. If you disconnect the battery and test it (with this tester) it will likely show up good; with no load it can still deliver 1.5 volts. Start the process again, connect it to one bulb and that bulb will be bright, maybe a second one too, but not a third. The battery still tests at 1.5 volts but can't sustain it with as much a load as when it was new. This tester won't tell you that.

The second "problem" is that it won't test rechargeable batteries with the same precision because they only deliver 1.2 volts. However, if you are only using this to tell if the battery is dead then it will work just as well as with regular batteries.

Very often batteries at near the end of their life will build up a surface charge that will trick a good quality high impedance volt meter into showing them to have more charge than they really do. This meter solves this problem by having a "working load" built in.

The gauge isn't calibrated for easy reading. The yellow and green are tiny. They should have had the red small at the left end so you could tell exactly how well (yellow) or good (green) the meter was showing the battery to be.

You have to be pretty coordinated to use this meter. If you hold the battery at even a slight misalignment, it will shoot off to the side and you have to catch it in the air.

The tester works perfectly but I would've liked a more accurate meter on the green side. Some of my batteries are in the middle of the green or at the edge of green and yellow. There should have been a divider in the green section for "good", "better", "best".

It tests most kinds of standard batteries INCLUDING 9 volts. The terminals are on one of the ends. I used it on all of our batteries and found out several devices that didn't work, that we thought were broke, were really just the victims of dead batteries. Easy to test and read. I recycled a dozen batteries that tested bad. I will buy more of them for gifts.

Gentlemen,
The tester is simple to operate and provides an easy way to assess the battery status. By not discarding usable batteries it will pay for itself in a short time.
