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 (with the exception of one small but regularly-occurring glitch).

This is the ZTS Mini Multi-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.

Cells & batteries that can be tested with this instrument are:
AAA, AA, C, D, N, 9 volt (all alkaline).
1.20 volt NiMH (all sizes).
3.0 volt lithium CR2, CR123A, and CRV3.

To use the ZTS Mini Multi-Battery Tester™, look on the left side of the instrument's body for a small test probe connected to a black wire. Gently pull the test probe away from the instrument's body; the wire will be wrapped around the left side, bottom, and right side of the instrument; this wire will easily pull away as you very gently pull on the test probe.

On the right side of the instrument's body near the top, you'll see a circular black pushbutton. Press & release this button.

Take the battery or cell you wish to test, and place its positive end (usually, the "nipple end") onto the metal contact labelled for that cell type, place the metal portion of the test probe against the cell/battery's flat-end, hold them that way, and watch the pretty lights near the top of the tester. You'll hear a solenoid-type clicking sound when the battery is correctly conected to the tester.

The tester's lights will go back-and-forth in an old Battlestar Galactica "cylon" pattern three times, then you'll hear another clicking sound, and the light indicating the battery's strength will illuminate and stay that way for as long as you have the battery under test connected to the instrument.

When you are finished using this instrument, press the test probe's wire back into the groove for it on the sides & bottom of the instru ment, and stow the test probe in the compartment for it on the left side of the instrument's body.

Power will automatically shut off; no need to fuss with or even forget about power switches.

This product feeds from 4 AAA cells, which you supply yourelf. To install or change them, turn the unit over, slide 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 four used AAA cells as you see fit.

Insert four new AAA cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (-) negatives face a spring for them in each compartment.

Slide the battery door back on, 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.

I'm not certain where that red spectral feature is coming from - I verified multiple times that it was not ambient light - so please do not ask).

Test unit was furnished by a fan of this website and was received sometime in December 2006.

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