Both testers are excellent at performing their jobs. The reason that I eventually found the mini-tester inadequate is that I have quite a few devices whose batteries can't be tested by this device (but can be tested by the larger MBT-1):
- 3v lithium coin (2016, 2032, etc.)
- 1.5v button cell (S76, A76, 357, LR44, etc.)
The mini-tester works on four classes of batteries, while the full-size tester works on ten classes (several of which I've never seen). The full-size version handles every battery-operated device I have except for a few devices that use oddball tiny button cells (392=SR41, 386=SR43, 389=SR54) -- for instance, a meat thermometer and a fever thermometer.
Other than the set of batteries that can be handled, there are a few small differences between the two testers. The mini-tester has an "on" switch and auto-off; the large tester has no switch at all. Both testers have a row of LEDs that indicate the battery state -- five on the mini and six on the full-size (with an additional LED for 10% battery life). The mini-tester uses four AAA batteries, while the full-size tester uses four AA batteries; both units have a self-tester to let you know when these batteries need to be replaced.
The most obvious difference between the two is sheer size -- the mini-tester similar to a pack of cards, the full-size tester more like a hefty book with narrow pages.
I had purposely saved a few batteries of reasonably known usage. A new AAA, a fully spent CR2, and a partially spent CR2. I tested all three and it took it about 5 seconds each, the leds raced back and forth then stopped on a charge level. All batteries tested as expected. Testing is a two handed operation as you have to hold the positive pole of the battery on the appropriate pole on the tester, then press the attached probe against the negative side of the battery (except the 9V for obvious reasons). There are no adjustments for testing, just press the battery to the appropriate point and it tests.
One added observation is the device I received has an additional point for measuring 3.6 V Li-Ion batteries. I'm including a pic of the tester in it's container.
I couldn't find anything reasonable without spending substantially more money. Given the number of batteries I go through and indiscriminately toss out I think this is a good investment. Overall this is a very nice device and would highly recommend to a friend.

Works very well to check most types of batteries. I have already found that I would have thrown away batteries that had nearly a full charge. It does pay for itself. Read morePublished 19 days ago by RickRedmond
Atrocious interface design. Does it work? Sure, but it's rather a hassle. Go with an Opus BT-C3100 V2.2. It's corded but MILES better, and at the same price point. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Michael the Psycho
I was unsure if this was worth the cost. With all the battery controlled products, I needed something better. My old tester left me frustrated. Read morePublished 1 month ago by TinkerV2
Does what it says. It seems to be very accurate. Has saved me from chucking Arlo batteries when they still have some life in them.Published 1 month ago by Frank A. Garrido

Great product; easy to use and has all of the functionality that I need.Published 2 months ago by Bob
I've owned this tester for about five years and it's never failed me. It is expensive and worth it.
It uses a 9V battery which lasts a suitably long time for me.
