These were better value when they were 50p delivered, a couple of years back. Not sure even now that they're that good even though I still have two of them

Hi
Thanks for posting. I have added an image to your post.
This is a link, made by rayman, which explains how to add images in great detail. It’s worth taking a look at if you are going to post more deals in future : - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/339941/how-to-post-and-host-images-for-thr/
Or follow the link in my signature.
Kind regards

does this work with rechargeable batteries ? - they seem to die suddenly so does this help ?
thanks
#5
http://www.therange.co.uk/ were doing these for about a quid in-store.

I've had one of these for a couple of years. Does it work? Kinda, if the battery is completely dead it'll show that, if there is any charge in it whatsoever, it goes straight up into the green/good band. Nothing in between. Only used it a few times.
#7
I've got one of these and it is very unreliable at giving an accurate reading unless it is a brand new battery or a completely dead battery.

rechargeable batteries have a lower voltage (1.2V instead of 1.5V) so will always register lower on the scale than alkalines. I think they also stay at 1.2V unless they are completely empty, so you can't really tell how charged they are until they run out. So this tester is best for normal alkaline batteries.

I have one of these, very very similar to the one in the pic (mine just has the scale labelled differently) and it seems to work fine. You can tell the difference between full, used a little, low, and totally dead batteries.
#9
These things are rubbish. I had two of them, and connected them to a bench power supply, and they read completely differently for the same input voltage and current. And even then it doesn't really tell you how much the batter has in it. When was the last time you wanted to know if one battery was better than the other?
#11
Ooh, brilliant!! I'm always finding batteries and never know if they're used or not, will get one of these!
#12
they sell these in the 99p store from time to time
#13
Use your tongue, much more reliable battery tester. :whistling:

They are regularly in Poundland as well.
Got mine from there.
I find it very useful.

I use a remote control...

not bad

The best way to actually test a battery is with a digital multimeter, which can not only check it's voltage as this does, but also it's available power, and will have many other useful features.These used to be expensive, but since you can now buy them for around £3-£4, they are a much better option IMO.I actually got a new digital multimeter recently, which also included transistor checking as well for £3.25 delivered from an ebay retailer! and that was the selling price, not an auction.It's much more accurate than this, as it can check batteries using a small load, to show it's real usefulness.
For those that want a simpler, less accurate option, then this battery tester is OK, but a for a few pound more, I'd recommend using a multimeter.

i agree...totally useless...prefer something which shoes percentage of battery left....
#19
I had one of those to test the batteries for my remote control car about 15-20 years ago. Doesn't look like they've changed at all. I think I still have that somewhere.
#20
bought one from here a while back when they were half that price - not that great. Sometimes it says completely dead - but the batteries still ran my GBadvance for hours. you get what you pay for.

Ditto! LOL although cleaning out the garage yesterday I threw mine in the bin! Was useless 20 years ago so is still useless today! I wouldn't buy one again
#22
They sell well because they do what most people need them to do- see if batteries have charge or not. This is why they've not changed the design for 20+ years.

whats wrong with using your toungue?

It'a a little bit small to wrap around anything other than a PP3.

This tester does have a small load resistor in I believe. Most multimeters don't because they don't have a battery testing mode, yours sounds like a good buy.
#26
Sorry but I voted cold because they are regularly in Poundland (got one myself) and the other around a pound priced shops
#27
Use a cheap multimeter, yeah?

Cool thanks

QUOTE FROM OP

"Please do not be put off by our very low selling price especially compared to other online sellers - just see the many excellent customer reviews for this item !!!"

Last week I submitted a review on a battery charger. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 but made citicism of the instructions as there was no mention of some of the functions. My review has not be put on their site.

It seems to me that they only publish reviews that suit them and so the usefulness of the reviews is complelety worthless. As a result I will buy elsewhere unless the 7DayPrice for an item is significantly cheaper than the same elsewhere. I'd rather a pay a bit more from somewhere that has some level of honesty.

Been after one of these for a while. Thanks!
#33
I have one of these...... It's rubbish. Still shows battery as good even if it will not operate equipment. Better off with multi meter or decent tester.
#34
The trouble is that there is no substitute for trying them in the equipment they're going to be used in, because open-circuit voltage gives little indication of the state of a battery under load, and you don't know the load that the batteries will be subjected to, nor the tolerance of the equipment to low voltages.
banned#35
i had one of these for years they are great
#36
I'm struggling to think of when I'd use one of these!
#37
is this not about the correct price, or even slightly high????

People vote anything hot on here these days.
#38
good deal
i just test batteries on my remote
#39
Not so good for testing NiMh as they don't apply much load to the battery. I took mine apart and put a power resistor in to give a 600mA drain, gives a much better idea of whether it's still OK to use in a digital camera or not.

Re-iterating BalSci's post... I have both these devices, the link in this deal from OP and the Hama unit in the link here.

The basic tester will tell you if the battery is fully charged or not - if it is low on charge the indicator will still hit the low end of the green. You'll get used to it, so it does the job.

The Hama unit is better though and gives more detail on a scale of 1-18 on how much charge the battery has.
