Simple Battery Tester, fiddly to use
on 2 July 2010
Owned this product for a number of years and found it to be really useful.
The display is very clear, though it doesn't take much for the arrow to move out of the green zone!
A plus is that it can cope with most types of batteries. there are contacts on the bottom for square batteries.
Drawbacks are that it is a bit fiddly to use. You have to position the battery in the gap, then puch on the red plunger to get a reading. If the battery is not correctly positioned, you may have to press hard to tell whether you have a dud or a good battery.
This gets worse over time, as the silver contacts get worn away with use.
AAA batteries are especially fiddly as they have to be positioned just right to make any contact.
Overall a cheap and cheerful product
