The BA7 is a handy tester to have for a quick test of your car's starting and charging system.

Well, now you can do that on your own time and not have to trust somebody that's trying to sell you a battery and alternator!

Easy to use with clear instruction--have to shade the screen in bright sun but otherwise very clear.

I needed to chase down a slow starting problem that only happened once in a while. I wanted to rule out the battery as the problem, but also needed to test the battery voltage drop during starting. Many digital multimeters have a "peak hold" feature that will hold the highest reading, but for starter testing you need to hold the reading of the lowest voltage measured during starting. The conductive CCA test of the Solar BA7 gave me the battery condition information I needed. The system test gave me the starter load voltage drop test I needed.

The Solar BA7 gets its operating voltage from the battery and indicates the no-load battery voltage when you connect its clips to the battery posts. You then can select the CCA test, enter in the battery's rated CCA, and get a reading of the actual CCA of the battery using a conductive test that sends a 1KHz sinewave through the battery to measure its internal resistance. Next, you switch to the SYSTEM test and crank the car. The BA7 will indicate and hold the lowest voltage reading obtained during starting and give you an "OK" or "FAIL" indication using LEDs. Then, as the engine is running you can advance to the charging test and see the battery voltage while the alternator is providing a charge. Once again, the BA7 gives you an LED indication of "OK" or "FAIL".

The BA7 is a handy tester to have for a quick test of your car's starting and charging system. It is simple enough for the non-technical person to use, but useful for the experienced tech to do troubleshooting. If you only need a one-time test, you can get that for free at many auto parts stores. But, if you are chasing down an intermittent problem, or want a battery system tester for your automotive toolbox, the BA7 is a good product to have.

I've been in the auto repair business for over 25 years. I've seen just about every kind of tester there is. Some only a few hundred bucks, others in the thousands. All to test a car's battery and charging system. I am proud to announce that this tester does everything that is necessary to determine the battery and charging system's state of health for under 100 bucks. It's all I use now. And it's been questioned repeatedly because of its diminutive size. Every challenger has found out by testing with their preferred tester that this one is always right. At this price I outta buy one for home as well.

If you don't want to drive out to the nearest auto center to have your battery and/or system tested for free then this is for you. Or if you work with a lot of cars, then this is for you. I frequent deal with 3-4 cars and this is easy for me to quickly check on the battery and system of each. The price you pay for this is convenience. The auto centers do basically the same for free but you have to drive there, and wait for help if they are busy or if they are closed or weather is bad, well, you get the picture. Not a must have in my opinion but a good convenient product for the automotive do it yourself person.

Please click YES if my review have been helpful to you, it will encourage me to continue writing and updating my reviews, and leave a comment if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer if I can be of help.

As a long time mechanic, and seeing the price of professional grade stand alone tools continuing to rise to ridiculous prices, I was VERY happy to find this SOLAR BA7 Tester.

Hook it up to the battery on your car, mower, ATV, etc etc, press a button or two, and then you have an instant digital read out in numbers, as well as color coded status lights for the condition of your Battery, Starter, or Alternator. And for cheap!

PROS:
1) It takes a matter of seconds to perform any test, making this simple to use.
2) You can perform tests on batteries hooked up in a car still, or unhooked, making this extremely time saving if you don't have to remove a battery to test.
3) You don't have to fully charge a battery to test!!! Almost all other testing units for batteries you have to have a fully charged battery, which is a pain in the butt, and waste of time. But not for this, you can test on a daily used battery that's not fully charged, genius!
4) Most consumer grade battery testers only give you a read out of battery voltage for their testing capabilities, which is only a part of what you need for an actual test. Voltage is good for understanding percent of the battery charged, but not how much power it's putting out. What you actually need to know besides voltage is CCA (or cold cranking amps), this is the actual capacity of the battery to exert power. So rather than having to take your batteries to your local Auto Part store everytime, buy this tester and have the professional test yourself on your own time, anywhere.
5) Sometimes your starting issue in your vehicle is not a bad battery, but rather a starter or alternator. So you can easily rule these out too by just testing them with the same tester too.

Living in Maine and being on 24-7 call for fire EMS duties , I bought this as I was having some inconsistent battery issues with a 2000 Legacy. used this and found a marginal charging system which my old style tester didn't pick up. Checked out my other cars - all 6+ years old and found a marginal battery on one which I replaced before our last subzero cold snap. Easy to use with clear instruction--have to shade the screen in bright sun but otherwise very clear.
