        This battery checker saves a lot of my old batters that I have in storage, many of them are practically full charge but its out of retail package so I couldn't tell if they are used or not, but this checker saves me alot of money, the only con is why don't know make this so that you can also check charges on button cell battery for watches and small remotes. Over all a great buy.

                Even with brand new or fully-charged batteries, the needle barely moves halfway through the red "replace" indicator. Useless.

                      This is one of the best [$] investments I've made! I can't tell you how many times I would have thrown away a whole group of batteries if an item is not working, not knowing if there was a single or multiple batteries not working. This device enables me to check each and every battery in the house before throwing away. My kids use it and love it too...and with kids, we go through what seems like 50-100 batteries each year. I can't begin to guess how much money it has saved us through the years. It is a must in every household as far as I'm concerned.

                      I have the older version and have had it for years. Works great for quick check. I'd buy another one if this one ever quits.

                            Comments about Enercell™ Battery Checker:

                            When I swap out new batteries in my radios, flashlights, and other gadgets I put them into a Ziploc bag until there are about 20 or 30. I would then sit down with my multi-meter and sort them according to remaining power. Anything below 1.1v goes into recycling. The others, I group into 1.2v, 1.3v, 1.4v, etc. for use in my grandkids toys. Grouping keeps a lower battery from drawing down better ones when installed in pairs or more. While using the multimeter gave the most accurate results, handling the leads and swapping through a pile of batteries was a juggling act I always hated. I planned to build my own tester when I found this one. I wanted a holder so I could run through a stack of batteries quickly. I also planned some jacks I could plug my meter into. Quick change-out and accurate readings! Well the I found this unit. It's basically a "tray" with a spring loaded contact ... pull down with your thumb, dump your battery. Drop in another and release your thumb. Quick and simple. The spring loaded contact is a great size for my big hands and makes good contact. The salesman let me test a few against his store multi-meter. Those I checked were within a few hundredths of a volt so its good enough to check and sort your old batteries for re-use in less demanding toys, etc. Try it ... you'll like it. OH BTW- someone else said the sliding contact started to bend right away. I suppose this is technically true ... BUT it is only settling back against its supporting rails as it was designed to do. Its not a defect.
