This product does not emit light of its own (much like this spectrometer, this spectrometer), and my beam cross-sectional analyser too) so the standard review format will not be used and the product will be assigned a rating at once. A very high rating too, as during the time I've had it, it has thus far performed pretty much flawlessly.

This is a load battery tester.
It is a small, pocket-sized device designed to test a number of different cell & battery types. It doesn't just measure open-circuit voltage, it places the cell or battery under load while measuring so that a more accurate, true test is performed.

It can test those pesky button cells (which a lot of other battery testers are not capable of doing!), AAAA, AAA, AA, C, and D cells, 9 volt batteries; even those wily and elusive 12 volt A23 cigerette lighter batteries!!!

To use the Load Battery Tester™, pull up on that yellow thing you see on the top and right side of the instrument.

On the front of the instrument's body near the bottom right, you'll see a black slide switch. Slide it forward (toward the top of the instrument) to the "ON" position.

Take the battery or cell you wish to test, and place its negative end onto the outermost of the two metal contacts on the top of the instrument, and slide that yellow thing down until it firmly touches the positive terminal (usually, the "nipple-end") of the cell under test.

The display will then indicate the voltage of the cell or battery while it is under moderate load.

Turn the slide switch on the front of the tester off and slide that yellow arm all the way down when you are finished using this instrument.

There is a three position slide switch on the left side of the instrument that I just now discovered; I have no idea what it's for or what it does.

This product feeds from 2 LR44 button cells, which I believe come furnished with the instrument - already installed. To change them, turn the unit over, unclip & lift the battery door off, carry it to a bridge over deep water (the Brooklyn Bridge would be ideal; however, the Juneau-Douglas Bridge would also do in a pinch here), and throw it over the side so that it goes "blub blub blub" all the way to the bottom of Gastineau Channel with all of the bowling balls that were lobbed over that bridge in the 1950s and 1960s...O WAIT!!! YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

If necessary, remove and dispose of or recycle the two used LR44 button cells as you see fit.

Insert two new LR44 button AAA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) positives face toward the left (as the instrument is oriented so that the battery compartment is closest to you).

Swing the battery door back on until it snaps shut, and be done with it.
Aren't you glad that you didn't throw that battery door over the side of the Juneau-Douglas Bridge now?

This is what the Juneau-Douglas Bridge looks like...or what it lookED like anyway before it was replaced in 1976.

And this is what the bridge looks like now.

The instrument as it would appear when you are actually testing a cell.

Test unit was obtained from an unknown individual sometime in 2002 or 2003.

Product was almost certainly made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.

This will very likely be the last new web page I publish on this website in 1989...er...uh...1999...ummm, no, that's not it either...2009!!!
