James, I have one of these things but if i'm honest it just sits on the shelf collecting dust as I dont have a clue on how to use it.

The battery tester first posted is so simple for us unknowledgeable people.

My thoughts exactly James.

FWIW most of these things come with instructions, COPPERS, so you shouldn;t have difficulties - Or google will help.

A Mulitimeter can do a hell of a lot more than this gadget.

Thanks James, I've ordered the Maplin one

Rizla I completely agree with you that it definately does a lot more. Im just making the point that I just like things easy not having to put two pieces of wire on the ends of batteries to see if there is power, thats once you work out what setting to put it on.
Im just saying for me who may want something completely basic then the first post is what I will potentially buy thats all, only on the basis that its quick and easy, you dont need any instructions to use it (blokes dont read them generally) and it gives you an easily read result i.e dead or alive.

I agree with you Coppers and also the original deal at £2.83 with free p&p comes in at just under half the price of the Invero Yellow Digital Multimeter (£5.34 including p&p). If you have to pay nearly twice as much for something else then I guess you're going to want it do at least twice as much (just saying! :)) - but £2.83 was a great price and the Silverline tester does all I need it to and apparently it does it quite well.

The maplin one I posted is easier to use because it has an auto range function and an audible connectivity function.

Basically to test a battery you put it to volts, and press the red and black leads against the battery and ensure the correct voltage readout is displayed. The correct voltage will be displayed on the battery

For bulbs and fuses you set it to the speaker symbol, this beeps if there is an electrical path.

So for example if a fuse is not blown it will beep, same for a bulb.

You can also use this as an aid when wiring up a light switch, checking if a charger is actually outputting electricity, making sure speaker cables work, ensuring you have the correct wiring when putting in a car stereo. I find mine to be incredibly useful.

I realise it is £5 including delivery but this basic multimeter is usually available for £3 if you look around that was just my first search on amazon.

Keep a good quality multimeter in my car, they are so useful.

Although a pain to get out just to test a few batteries, I use mine mostly for continuity tests.

Not sure why this has been expired, just ordered one.

For a little while the price went up to over 4 quid so someone probably expired it then. Link now takes you to a page saying that it costs £4.73. People need to check out the More Buying Choices down the right hand side and they'd see that it's still available at £2.83 (free P&P)
