          This is a great battery tester. It tests all types of battery that I use at home, including 12V 23As. It needs two things to make it perfect.
          1. The easy: Replace the word "Regular" with "Alkaline." I use Ni-MH for almost all applications. To me, Ni-MH is regular. Be specific with the wording, not ambiguous.
          2. The hard: Get rid of the leads, which are hard to hold on the battery. Instead, keep the compartment for the button cells, keep the 9V contacts, and add a spring-loaded clamp for the tall cells. Alternatively, keep the leads, but add a small, half-cylinder trough at the bottom to hold the cell still while attaching the leads.

              I tested a brand new 3V Lithium battery and the tester correctly indicated it was good. I then tested a known dead 3V Lithium battery and the tester incorrectly indicated it was also good. This device is useless!

                              I'm an electronic technician. I've tested probably 100 batteries with this unit. All batteries seem to test exactly the same. The meter deflects either to the same location, or not at all. I've taken batteries out of equipment like wireless microphones because it had stopped working, replaced the battery and the unit works fine. Proceeded to test the batteries on this tester, which measures them as good. I suspect that the tester does not test the batteries under load as it claims. Save your money. Don't buy this piece of trash.

                                I've had this tester for a while and have had no problems with it. It works well and hasn't failed me yet. The only downfall, is that the compartment in the back where the leads are stored is very small and cramped, which makes it very difficult to shove the wires into.

                                      I am tired of throwing batteries away without knowing i they are really dead. So I decided to buy this battery meter. Result: I checked old 2 AA Alkaline batteries and 2 AA Lithium batteries, they all show that they are done. Ok, I figured that. For comparison I checked 2 brandnew AA Alkalines and 2 brandnew AA Lithiums, and they show the same result. I also checked abrandnew AAA Lithium and a brandnew AAA Alkaline, both show dead as well. I might have gotten a faulty meter, so I will check with the store, but I don't trust this one.

                                        I bought this so I would know if a battery is any good before throwing it out. The photo battery-3 V. tested good, but I couldn't use it in my camera, so the battery tester didn't help at all.

                                            I've used one of these for a LONG time in one incarnation or another. I was a former RS employee for 15 years and these are the only battery testers I'd use and trust. They do load the battery properly for a good test and can test all sorts of batteries. I like to test button cells on these, especially the backup lithium batteries from computers. Yes, the backup batteries do go bad after a while and this is the perfect meter to test them with. The price is very resonable, it's accurate...and no, I don't work for RS anymore. :-)
