Solid Product
November 9, 2014
I bought this battery tester three years ago. I've been using it on a regular basis ever since. Simple to use, and the results are easy to understand. The best part about it is that it puts a real load on the battery to test it, giving a "real world" value for how much power the battery contains. It even has separate test sections for rechargeables (NiMH, etc) and for primary alkaline batteries. That matters because the rechargeables read a lower voltage when fully charged, as compared to alkalines. BatteryJunction has several of the ZTS meters for sale. This is the entry level model. Having been very happy with it, there's a good chance I'll be ordering one of its big brothers. Oh, and don't forget to also order the storage pouch. Only a couple of bucks, and the fit is great!

Love it!

I ordered this because I was frustrated with the usual $5 testers one finds that don't really test, just guess based on voltage. Several Candlelight Forums members recommended the ZTS testers as the way to go. It was on sale at the time so I jumped at it. And I'm glad I did. It has been invaluable in testing batteries to see how much life is really left in them. I don't use it often, but it is always there when I need it. If you are serious about getting the most out of your batteries, and protecting the equipment they go in, you need a ZTS, and this MINI is a good place to start. And it is made in America, too!

Intuitive, easy to use, solidly built
September 15, 2014
For a long time I've been approximating battery health using an ordinary multimeter, which wasn't doing the trick for a couple of reasons: 1) a standard multimeter does not put the battery under load, so voltage readings using one are not really a good indicator of battery strength; and 2) it's tricky to consistently touch both terminals on a AA or AAA battery with multimeter leads unless you have three hands ;) This battery tester solves both problems in a small and solidly built package. Using it is very simple... all you need to do is touch the positive battery terminal to the appropriate button on the tester, and then touch the attached lead to the negative battery terminal for a couple of seconds. Occasionally a battery will wake up a little after the first reading, and show slightly higher strength in the second or third test. Nonetheless, I've gotten very consistent readings using this tester, and it's made it very easy for me to weed out the dead/dying batteries around the house. My only (minor) criticism is that the readout shows battery strength in blocks of 20%, so I'm not getting highly detailed information. However, I knew this was the case when I brought it, and this UI is more than sufficient for the intended purpose.
